Our experience about Sunlight Hotel, Istanbul.

Posted May 24, 2015
This hotel offers decent accommodations at a stone through of many major tourist attractions. The staff ranges from very friendly to OK, depending. Located in the European Section and with a panoramic terrace over the area. Caveat: be sure to mention "Sunlight" to avoid concussions with similar hotels.

Not a quite room, need more sound proof!

Posted Mar 30, 2015
I am staying in a room 101, for 3nights, you can hear noise from receptionist: phone ringing, conversation, moving chair, glass. Or plates, etc! That is only one of the downsize, noise! But not from traffic, is from the hotel reception and restaurant! To be frank, others is super: location, cleanliness, staff, value of money and facilities!

Comfortable hotel near historical sites

Posted Jun 5, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness & its position.
Location: Shopping in Grand Bazaar & historical buildings are abundant in this area.
Clean, comfortable hotel situated very close to the important historical sites of Sultanahmet area. It is also walking distance from the Grand Bazaar. There is a lift to all floors. Bathroom had clean towels & the room had a TV & fridge. Buffet breakfast was quite good.

My first Istanbul hotel

Posted Feb 8, 2013 on Hotels
I wanted to stay there because I was there in October, it was easy to get there by tram and it was close to the center. But I knew the staff was friendly, even though the cleanliness was quite poor.

A hotel near the biggest sights

Posted May 11, 2012 on Hotels
The hotel was clean and quite OK for the price. It was better than what we expected. The hotel is situated in a downhill so that you have to climb up cobblestone streets to get to the main street in the old city . But it was close to the sights like Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque and a tram station which was great. The breakfast was OK, nothing fancy. The rooms were kept clean and the reception was open 24/7. But the walls were like paper and you could here every single word said in the neighbor room. There were some other bad things as well, but if you go to Istanbul and want a cheap hotel for a few days (we stayed for 5 nights and that was the max.) this hotel isn't too bad. Except it's a bad choice for allergic and asthmatic people (I found it hard to breath in the mornings).

Cheap hotel

Posted Aug 24, 2011 on Hotels
It was not a bad hotel comparing with its price. There was a free open buffet breakfast, which was good. The room was really small than I was expecting. The bed was kind of twin bed.

Hotel in Istanbul

Posted Aug 11, 2011 on Hotels
This hotel is off the beaten path, down a rather steep hill and less convenient than comparable hotels. The room was fairly large and comfortable. We appreciated the lift. . The people at the desk were not particularly helpful or responsive, with a few exceptions. The breakfast was mediocre at best.....bread, jam, and coffee along with some cut tomatoes and cucumbers; the boiled eggs were spoiled. We were very unhappy at check out. Our plane left late, so we went for a morning walk, and returned to find the maid was cleaning our room, had put a few of our things into our suitcases, had turned off the a/c, and the bathroom was not available to us. Since we returned a good hour before the official checkout time, we found this to be quite disconcerting if not rude!

old and small, but good location

Posted Jun 21, 2011 on Hotels
old room, in-wall air conditioner, twin bed. shower didn't have any walls, only curtain going to floor, so floor would be soaked after shower. wireless available, but only in lobby. i'd say this was a 2.5 star hotel. i'd stay there again because it was so cheap and a good location. decent breakfast too. but i wouldn't invite any girls back to my room at this place ;o)
