Comfortable stay in IstanbulPosted Aug 25, 2013
Pros: Hotel staffs
Cons: Nothing special, all are in good condition.
Location: Near to grand bazzar as well as historical places, excellent location, too.
There are plenty of small hotels in the part where I stayed, and even experienced taxi drivers could not reach easy. But the location is quite excellent.

Beautiful little cosy hotel, great locationPosted Jun 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a very pleasant brief stay at this hotel. The room was a little small, but the hotel was very clean and comfortable. Staff were very polite and helpful. Breakfast was excellent.

Nice hotel about 10 minutes from the actionPosted Jun 16, 2013
Pros: It was nice, clean, the bed comfortable and even had English TV channels.
Cons: I booked a double room and received two twins. When I told them this wasn't acceptable the staff were a bit argumentative, but resolved it anyhow.
Location: Close to the old city, plenty to do there.
Hotel Momento is a bit difficult to find, but the staff is helpful (enough, they don't seem super enthusiastic but they'll help you out), the rooms are nice, and the breakfast spread is great. It's well situated about a 10 minute walk from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, and even closer to the grand bazaar if that's your kind of thing. They have a big "NO OUTSIDE FOOD OR DRINK" sign in the lobby and expect you to pay a few lira for a tiny bottle of water from the minibar, but there's a convenience store next door and no one objected to our bringing in large bottles of water. The restaurant on site is okay, and it's about a 30 minute ride to Ataturk Airport in a cab, 90 minutes or so to Sabiha Gokcen airport.

Clean, friendly and comfortablePosted Jun 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
A short walk to the Grand Bazaar, I picked this hotel for its location but was impressed by the clean, quiet rooms. I had a single room but my friends in the double had a balcony! The staff was helpful and took the time to explain anything you asked. And the breakfast buffet was more than you needed - a blend of Turkish and American foods. Overall, a great pick.

Central location but not a "nice" areaPosted Nov 22, 2012
Pros: Recently remodeled and central location
Cons: Rooms were a little small and breakfast/lobby area also small. No nice view from our room.
Location: Central location but not nice around the area.
Hotel is very central - just a 5 minute walk (uphill) to the tram station and Grand Bazaar (great for shopping!). However, the area is not the nicest, and when we visited they were redoing the main street that goes down to the hotel, so it was even not good for walking. However, for the price this is definitely a good deal. The breakfast was mediocre and the eating area is small so the first day we had to wait for a little while to get a table. Overall, a good deal.
Very convenient clean hotelPosted Oct 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
I stayed only for one night waiting for a transfer to Uganda. I have no complaints at the Hotel. The location is also excellent if you want to visit the city quickly, like me. Rooms are very neat.

Ideal spotPosted Jul 8, 2012 on Hotels.com
Very conveniently located to the historical sites like Sultanahmet, Topkapi Palace, Cistern, Haggia Sofia, plus Grand Bazar. The tram trains are within walking distance. It was very easy to travel to all places with only 2 Turkish Lira. Breakfast was very good at the hotel. Lots of restaurants were located nearby. Most streets were full of shopping malls of leather, bags, shoes, clothes etc. The sea was also very close with lots of fish restaurants. Hotel rooms were small but clean. The hotel offers taxi services to and from Airport within range of 30 to 50 TL.
Not what we expectedPosted Jun 11, 2012 on Hotels.com
Online, an original price which was representative of a 5 star hotel was slashed out with a more reasonable price noted. The room was not worth the discounted price. The hotel is crammed into a very noisy, busy, dirty area of wholesale vendors - not as the photo would suggest online. The hotel was virutally unrecognizable from the online photo. Yes, it' right by the Bazaar. So if this is what you want, then go for it. The room is extremely small - much smaller than the photos suggest. We spent time with an Istanbul native, and they were shocked at what we paid.....

Memorable MomentoPosted Jun 10, 2012
Pros: Friendly and attentive staff
Cons: The pavements on the way to the Hotel were at best uneven - but that's not the Hotel's fault, just meant you have to watch your step on the sidewalks!
Location: Two or three blocks down the hill from the main road. We found it quiet at night although the street was busy during the day.
A couple of blocks off the main drag, this hotel is well situated for the Centre of Istanbul, all sites of interest being within comfortable walking distance. Although situated on a side street, the advantage here was peace and quiet at night with no trafiic noise etc. We found the Hotel staff to be friendly, courteous, and attentive (we found almost every Turk we came into contact with to be helpful and friendly). Our room was large enough, the en-suite well designed and clean. There were nice little touches like the free bedroom slippers, and a bowl of mixed nuts with our drinks. We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the Momento.
