A great little hotel in Istanbul

Posted Oct 25, 2015 on Hotels
The staff was wonderful! Very welcoming and accommodating. Breakfast was good, with eggs cooked to order. Room was modern and clean. Location was close to tram line and good for touring Old Town.

Nothing fancy, but everything you'd need

Posted Oct 21, 2015 on Hotels
It's a small hotel, with a modest lobby. Service was excellent. Location is great. There's a station across the street for the train that goes across the Bosporus to Asian side. There's also a tram stop nearby that carries passengers to the main touristy areas. I enjoyed being awakened in the morning to the sound of the morning call to prayer. Breakfast offerings were adequate, but not as much variety as other similarly sized hotels in Istanbul. Breakfast seating was tight. Solid three and half star hotel and worthwhile if priced under $100 per night.

Wonderful little place!

I had a great time at Elanaz Hotel! The location is great for tourist activities - you can walk to all the major mosques, museums, etc. My room was also very nice and clean. I especially enjoyed the breakfast - every morning there is fresh-squeezed orange juice, some delicious cheese-filled warm pastries, and a very friendly attendant who will make you an omelette!

Location, location, location.

Pros: Friendly, helpful staff. Rooms from level 3 and above have views of the old 'Orient Express' railway station as well as the Bosphorus straights.
Location: Close to the tram and hop on - hop off bus terminals.
10 to 15 minutes walk to all major attractions in the old city of Instanbul. Located off the main street so noise was not an issue. Friendly staff. Many, many restaurants in the neighborhood serving great local foods of all kinds.

Elanaz Hotel December 2014 stay

Posted Dec 9, 2014
Pros: The central location
Cons: Memory form topper to the mattress for the comfort of older bones!
Location: Middle of the tourist area
The hotel is nice, clean and honest (we lost a couple of memory sticks and they emailed me to tell me), the breakfast was nice with fresh coffee always a big plus with me, bring your own tea though if you are British, not a reflection on the hotel its just not going to be PG tips outside England ;) The bed was very hard like a rock, for the older couple that can mean a not so good restful sleep otherwise they was extremely helpful, pleasant and friendly.

Amazing view of the Bosphorous

Posted Dec 1, 2014 on Hotels
We stayed at the top floor which looked out into the Bosphorous and the Istanbul skyline, and it was quite enchanting. The hotel staff were helpful and friendly, and the breakfast options were so sumptuous. All the Istanbul attractions are walkable from here, and we loved exploring the neighborhood. Overall, an amazing experience!
