Blue Eye Suites

Kadirga Liman Caddesi Dönüs Sokak No 4, Istanbul 34000 - Map
"A very nice & exceptionally comfortable place."
Heading back to USA from a job in the middle-east, I wanted to spend a couple of nights in Istanbul. We came into IST in the middle of a snowstorm, which blanketed the city in a couple of inches of snow/ice. I was very pleased with the friendliness, cleanliness, and location of Blues Eye Suites. The breakfasts were quite extensive, fresh-cooked, and simply exceptional (wide variety of selection). I plan to go back, for sure; I hope that my next visit, I will not go into Istanbul being so tired (so that I can visit more of the historical sites, in future). The Blue Eye Suites was simply a wonderful place to stay !

Mimar Hayrettin Mh. Divani Ali Sk. No 7, Istanbul 34126 - Map
"Nice hotel close to Sultan Ahmet and Grand Bazaar."
Our overall recent experience staying at Divani-Ali Hotel was really good. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel rooms were clean and facilities were great. Our only criticism will be how small the rooms were, so if your a person whom loves their space, you may feel claustrophobic at times. Other than that, this hotel is a lovely place to stay and I will recommend it to anyone who would like to visit Istanbul.

"Nice, Clean and good location"
I read some of the reviews where they say the rooms are not clean, but my experience the room i was in was clean and nice, i took the smallest room which is called economy or budget room, the only 2 things I didn't like about it was the bed cover was too small for 2 people and the TV was low quality other than that was nice hotel and I would stay in it again but this time i'll ask them to bring me a bigger cover 😉

"Fantastic service, perfect location"
We loved our stay here. The service from Tufun (or Toofun,not sure how to spell his name) was just amazing. He spent a full hour or more with us when we arrived telling us about everything there is to do in the city. He gave us snacks and tea/coffee, he was really honest about what was worth seeing and not doing, etc. He was fantastic and made our stay in Istanbul really great. One morning the coffee maker in our room wasn't working so I went down to make coffee in the lobby and he saw me and brought out breakfast to take back up to the room. It was delicious! On the morning we were leaving he helped us out and asked if we had breakfast yet. We said no, so he ran out to grab us simit's for our ride to the airport. I've never in my life, even at 5 star resorts, experienced such amazing service, I just can't say enough about him. He is the best and deserves a huge raise. Other than that the hotel is in a great location. Grab a room ending in 01 for views of the galata tower, ours was an 02 room and didn't have a view. The apartments are slightly smaller than expected from the pictures, but still fine. It was just a little tricky to find a place to put luggage. Kitchen-wise you have everything you need in a compact little space, it was great. The only small problem was that there seemed to be cigarette smoke smell at various times throughout the hotel, even though the whole place is a non-smoking hotel.

Big Box Hotel

Halide Edip Advar mah.Akar cd.No: 28, Istanbul 34398 - Map
"very affordable"
The hotel is located in Sisli neighborhood, very calm and save. There is a traditional Turkish market on Saturdays very close up the street behind the hotel, and a lot of small stores and businesses. Taxi to Taksim Square is around 15/20 TL depending on traffic congestion, and to the Blue Mosque and historic part of Istanbul around 30/50 TL. Taxis are very cheap and affordable for Istanbul. The staff is very nice and polite, they serve traditional Turkish breakfast as a buffet, complimentary to your stay from 8 to 10 am. Check out is at 12 pm, but you can also pay late check out. We stayed in a family room, which was great, especially the bathrooms and bathtubs. Every room has a safe for your valuable belongings and a mini-bar. The air-conditioning system is spot on, you can adjust the temperature. There are very nice small balconies. There is no parking available though if you are with a car, but you can park on streets around the hotel if you find a free spot. Overall the hotel is perfect for that price. Well you cannot compare it to Hilton which is just across the boulevard, but in my opinion is perfect for that price.

Holiday Apartment Istanbul

Fermeneciler Cad. Ali Yazici Sok. No:10, Istanbul 34421 - Map
"Right in the heart of Karakoy"
The hotel is right on the Golden Horn, literally you can look out of your window onto the water, the fish on racks and the bustle of small restaurants. It is perfectly located in Karakoy and a close walk to restaurants, shops and Taskim. It was pretty noisy at night (just from the bustle of the city). Our room was clean and modern, the bathroom was beautifully renovated. The only challenge was finding it at first, our taxi driver had a really hard time. Better to get directions from the staff as it isn't marked from the outside. All in all a wonderful stay, very comfortable and modern facilities. Would highly recommend!
