Mixed Feelings

Posted Mar 23, 2016
Pros: Location to Grand Bazaar
Cons: Alot...smell, facilities
Location: Sketchy area but close to the Grand Bazaar
The hotel is in a very sketchy area, however it was right across the street from the Grand Bazaar, which was helpful. There are nicer hotels in the area. We asked for a room to accommodate 4 of us and they gave us 2 rooms, which was good. However, in one of the rooms, the entire balcony door was hanging loose from its hinges with cold air blowing in. We were able to push/fix it closed, and drew the curtain so to block out the air. The same room's shower door was completely missing so we had a puddle of water in the restroom after showering. The other room was really great. The staff was very nice when they greeted us in person but I had tried to email them 5 times to confirm our booking and not one person replied so we were actually worried if we even had a room that day. Additionally, the entire hotel smelled of cigarettes. The breakfast on the 5th floor was pretty good. So as you can see, this review has mixed feelings. I think, next time, I would just find another place.

لا أنصح به أبداً

Posted Oct 20, 2014 on Hotels
غرفة صغيرة جدا سيئة التهوية لدرجة أنك تشعر بالاختناق, العزل سئ لدرجة أنك تسمع ما يدور في حمام الغرفة التي بجانبك, الفطور سئ جدا وضعيف ونفسه يتكرر يومياً, موظفي المطعم والقهوة سيئي التعامل, مصعد واحد صغير لا يتسع لأكثر من شخصين لايوجد ابريق قهوة في الغرفة, بنت واحدة التي تعرف شوي انكليزي والبقية تتعامل معهم بلغة الاشارة. بتراس الافطار يضعون التلفزيون على اغاني صاخبة جدا بصوت مرتفع فيها فيديو كليبات بذيئة الشكل ولا جدوى من طلب تخفيض الصوت ... تشعر نفسك بكازينو الساعة 9 صباحا. الشئ الوحيد الجيد هو المنطقة المحيطة وقربه عن الترام... وبس Very bad Hotel, I will not visit that hotel even if i enforced to stay in the street, Moreover, the stuff is very tough, Dont wast your money

Staff treated us like family

Posted Aug 28, 2014
We caught the metro to the hotel during which, and dispute what we thought we good precautions, we had a wallet stollen with cash and cards. The staff at Salinas spoke very little English - the manager phoned his daughter to translate - but did pretty much everything they could to help including escorting us to the police staton and waiting while we tried to get a report (over an hour) and asking if we needed some cash! They seemed to genuinely take it quite personally that we had had a bad start in İstanbul. Apart from the staff, the wifi in the room was very fast with no limits on the number of devices. The view from the rooftop breakfast was great. The location of the Hotel was good.

The hotel didn't correspond to the pictures because it si not mantained so good and the breakfast was poor in therm of quality of the food ( related to the price; 720 euros for 6 nights) but the staff was great, polite and helpful.

Pros: staff, cleanliness, location
Location: right next to tram. Really dont need it. 15 min walk to all majore attractions. Food and shopping very close. PERFECT LOCATION!
Couldnt ask for a better Hotel. We loved every minute of our stay. Staff was amazing. Room was clean. Big clean restrooms. Location was PERFECT. Price was decent- but we went in peak season.. Would and will recommend to anyone!
