Nice clean hotel, ideal location to attractions

Posted Apr 5, 2016
Very nice hotel, clean and the family comfort room we were in was well equipped with a lovely long balcony. Not much of a view though. But very close to all main attractions Inc. blue mosque, topkapi palace museum, Hagia Sofia, all within 5 mins walk. Also local tram stop is 2 mins walk, which you can travel almost anywhere in the city with the Istanbulkart. Each ride on it is just over 2 lira per person whether that's one stop or the full line from one end to the other. Breakfast is simple but tasty and filling. Hotel staff are friendly and speak English well. Plenty of restaurants nearby and prices are about the same as you would find in the UK. People generally are amazingly friendly and hospitable in Istanbul , but speak surprisingly little English considering it is a tourist place.

At the same downtown

Posted Mar 22, 2015
Pros: The situation. Downtown.
Cons: They should renew the towells. They are very old and too much used.
Location: Around 10 minutes walking from the Hagia Sophia, Sultanahmed Camii, Yerebatan Sarnici.
Hotel located at the same downtown. Quite small rooms. Water in the minibar is for free. Breakfast simple but good. I recomend it for the situation. 10 minutes away from everyway.

Nice hotel in old town Istanbul

Posted Jan 21, 2015
Pros: Its location; staff; buffet breakfast; and reliable wi-fi access.
Cons: Plumbing system, to avoid the unpleasant odor in the bathroom.
Location: Terrific location in the heart of the old city Istanbul, walking distance to all the major tourist sites.
Olimpiyat is a nice hotel located in the heart of the old city Istanbul, close to all the major landmarks and sites to see, including Hagia Sophia, SultanAhmet, etc. The area is great for shopping and dining. Terrific location. The rooms are reasonably priced and clean. Hotel staff is very professional, with excellent English, and customer-service oriented. Buffet breakfast is delicious, and the menu is impressive. The only issue we noticed was unpleasant odor from the restroom plumbing, but otherwise it's a hotel to be recommended. Wi-fi access is reliable. The rooms are well-heated in the winter time. We really enjoyed our stay there and would recommend Olimpiyat hotel to our friends planning to visit Istanbul.

Nice value for perfect location

Posted Sep 11, 2013
Pros: Nice breakfast to start your day.
Cons: Small lift, so be patient in getting to/from your room.
Ideal location for sightseeing and access to transportation to/from the airport. Good value for a moderately priced hotel, especially for the location. Rooms are small, but comfortable and clean.
