Nice little hotel close to tourist attractions

Posted Jan 29, 2014
It is a very straightforward and nice little hotel. Staff is friendly, and the location is really great. For the price, I was very happy with the room. We stayed for 11 nights, and we switched rooms half way. The second room was very bright and cheery. While there was nothing particularly wrong with the first room, the second room was great!

convenient apartment

Great Apartment

Posted Nov 13, 2013
Pros: Extras
Location: Close to Blue Mosque and Sultanahmet area, great location!
We took the apartment, great location, nice views, and quiet space. There was a large terrace with views, the ocean view was great. Heating and AC, kitchen was nice to have. Washing machine was a great extra too. All and all a great place and easy to get in an out of. Would do it again.

A disappointing experience

Posted Oct 31, 2013
Location: Close to all the major attractions.
We booked 10 nights and wished we had done a bit more research before booking. On arrival we were asked to pay for the stay upfront without even having seen the room, which was an ominous sign. After checking in, we were shown to the 2 bed apartment, which to our surprise was a few streets from the reception in a dinghy side street, with rubbish strewn around and cats squalling through the night. Enough said. The apartment was abysmally decorated and depressing to stay in. With the noise keeping us up we asked for a change of room. After initially being told there was no alternative we were moved for the third night onwards to the same building as the reception. It was an improvement. Laminate floors and cheap looking rugs not the wooden floors/Turkish carpets we had been promised in the description. Washing machine is a bonus but required some translation of Turkish to operate. Free wifi and under 10 mins from the main sites in SultanAhmet main plus poinst of this hotel. Rooms seemed to be cleaned every other day. They were slightly stingy on providing enough toilet paper. Breakfast was extra but we never tried it. Overall a bit disappointing.

close to the main sites

Posted Oct 22, 2013
It was a very pleasant stay. Very roomy, walking distance to Blue Mosque, Aya sophia and Topkapi even for a 73 year old 9weeks post op knee. Yes it pushed me a bit but still enjoyed it. Staff gave helpful hints and answered all our questions. We liked the space and price.

Great value for the money

Posted Sep 29, 2013
Pros: Location, Location, Location
Cons: Maybe more choice for breakfast...
Location: There are several museums and historical places to see, and that is breathtaking stuff... Definently bring camera for great moments to be recorded.
Hotel is very nice and in the heart of the Old city of Istanbul. Everything is very close to it ( Blue Mosque, Haigha Sophia, Grand Bazar etc. ) There is no elevetar in the building and for the hot water you will have to wait for a second. Other than that, the place is absolutely great.

Emirhan Inn (not an apartment)

Posted Sep 9, 2013
Pros: The location is ok. Not too far from the main interest areas. The room is clean and the staff friendly, but most of them don't speak English.
Cons: The description of what they offer. The pictures should reflect what you are going to get.
Location: The location is ok. You are walking distance from Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, etc. About a 10 minute walk.
They should change their description. It is not actually an apartment you are paying for, just a little room. Maybe I just got the smallest room they had... I have no idea. You cannot use the kitchen or the phone. The street is busy, so expect some noise.

Good Value and Easy Walk to Blue Mosque

Posted Aug 18, 2013
Pros: Location, reasonably clean, well maintained rooms. Nice small restaurants and shops seconds away. ....And the price
Cons: Breakfast surely should be upgraded to include fruit, yogurt and muesli......and better coffee Should somehow create common areas that are inviting
Location: North & east are tourist oriented businesses and the big sites; mosques, bazaars, tram lines etc West of the hotel has cheap and delicious eateries
The 'sale' price we booked gave us pretty good value for Sultanhamet. - Friendly staff were alert and waiting our arrival. They quickly whisked our luggage out of taxi and to our ground floor double room. - Clean, medium size room with desk, wardrobe closet and small fridge and water kettle (not any excess room with all that) - No excess space in bathroom either, but shower doors kept water on the correct side and plumbing was fully functional - AC was fully needed this time of year and the AC did its job. However, it didn't seem to sense when the room was at the target temp and we periodically had to turn it off or on. Common areas we hoped would be nice for lounging were not inviting. Breakfast on the patio was nice when the weather was nice. Breakfast included in rate was an egg, fried or 'omelette', Turkish coffee or tea, soft cheese assortment and bread. Convenient but nothing to look forward to Location is on the quieter side of the hill with the Blue Mosque and tram line a 10 minute steep, but interesting, walk uphill (and of course a quick and easy 5 minute jaunt back). The other side of the peninsula has much more commercial development and we preferred the neighborhood feel around Emirhan Bottomline; a good value but unexciting choice
