Poor value for money-misrepresented in photosPosted Oct 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
The location close to the Old City was the only good thing about this hotel. Room did not even slightly resemble those in the photos. We were in a basement with tiny street-level windows with bars, fighting cats, tires, dust and street noise at ear level. Second bed was terrible, and no extra blankets for when it got really cold. Owners were friendly, appreciated their arranging taxi to and from airport. Microwave did not work and toilet ran constantly. We had arranged to get our packed luggage later than check out from our locked room. When we arrived it was left unsecured out in the hall. We were misled about the value of what was provided compared to other hotels in the same vicinity. There are many excellent hotels close by that cost the same, with much more. We had tours of them.

Nice apartments very close to Hagia SofiaPosted Sep 2, 2013
Pros: See above
Cons: I had a basement room - it maybe unsuitable for someone.
Location: Perfect location. Topkapi, Hagia Sofia and Grand Bazaar are within walking distance.
It is apartment - best suitable for families for rather long stay. You will feel at home with very friendly staff while having historical center within walking distance.

Ruined holiday, downgrade suite to dark small roomPosted Jul 28, 2013
Cons: Did not honour our reservation, threatened to charge us four nights stay if we chose to check out and get another hotel
Hotel has 4 apartment rooms consisting of two suites (nos.3,4), one ordinary room (no.2) and one basement. When booking I was looking at comparable large suite rooms in good hotels at about the same price, and the suite rooms 3,4 looked good. It was really important for this short holiday that we had a lovely room. I booked no.4, a large bright open-plan suite with dividing curtain, and separate kitchen, on the top floor. I was completely shocked on check in to be led into a dark small ground floor room. I protested. In the conversation that followed the staff explained they decided to put me in the smaller room because a family should better take the larger room. I protested strongly at them not honouring our reservation and we decided to find another hotel. The hotel said they would then charge us for the full four nights if we didn't agree to stay, but would move us on the next day and offered a (pointless) small deduction on the price. We accepted under strong protest, spent a terrible night, and the next morning we packed up everything to relocate room. We arrived back in the hotel that evening and were told the guests in our room would not move. We were forced to stay another night in the small dark ground floor room, and yet again to pack ready to move the next day. On day three we were eventually moved, but as I had to leave on day four this was a totally ruined holiday. The hotel is totally untrustworthy. Terrible holiday. Terrible.

Staff went an extra mile to help us!!!!!!Posted Aug 7, 2012
Staying at Topkapi Apartments was a very satisfying experience for my whole family which comprise of 2 adults and 2 children who are both less than ten years old. Location of the place is unusually central to almost all main attractions in Istanbul.I want to add a word of thanks to Yousuf who was extremely cooperative and helping. Their airport pick and drop was marvellous as I was travelling with a lot of luggage and requested them to send a big vehicle which they did. I would strongly recommend these apartments to other visitors of Istanbul also and would definitely look forward to staying there again if I come to Istanbul.

Great Location; Wonderful Accomodation!Posted Apr 20, 2012
Pros: Cleanliness; Decor; Full Kitchen; Location
Location: Sultanahmet (Old City)
The pictures on the website do not do justuice to how nice this apartment is! I went with my mom and sisters (party of 4) for a week's stay in Istanbul. This is a lovely apartment in The Old City (Sultanahmet District), with nice fluffy white sheets and wood panel flooring. There is a full kitchen and small fridge. The sofa bed in the second room is very comfortable and may be used as a sofa to watch TV. Apartment is in top shape with clean fixtures and bathroom. The apartment is more than comfortable for four people. The host Yusuf Yildiz is the nicest person you will meet, and offers great recommendations from food places to sight-seeing. We had an incredible time and cannot wait to return sometime!

Terrific apartment in IstanbulPosted Oct 24, 2011
Our Topkapi apartment was very comfortable, clean and safe. We chose the apartment near the top and close to the outside terrace. The terrace was great for morning coffee or in the evening for unwinding with friends. We wanted an apartment because we were in Istanbul for a week and liked having an option of keeping fresh food in the kitchen. Hamza and Yusuf (owners of the apartments) arranged transportation to and from the airport for us. They know so much about Istanbul and enjoy making recommendations for their guests. Staying in the apartment was a great choice for us.

Great location for all the main sightsPosted Apr 28, 2011
Well run, clean and well located apartments, very close to the Blue Mosque. There's no lift to the top apartment or terrace but it shouldn't be a problem for most to walk up the stairs. Had a great time in a great City with a fantastic history and culture and would stay in Topkapi apratments when i go back to Istanbul.
