Nice hotel. Friendly staff and owners. Home

Posted Aug 27, 2017
Very comfort home-like hotel. Mr. Irfan and his partner are great and generous hosts. Staff are friendly and helpful. Both owners and one staff (Nayef) speak good English and facilitate everything for you. Give you good advices and tips on regards of sightseeing and transportation. Rooms are either big with small bathroom or small with big bathroom (i tried and liked both) breakfast is kindda limited and almost the same every day but who mind good quality Turkish breakfast everyday? (i dont) .. tea is always ready to be served. Location is excellent. All attractions and bazzars are walking distance. Laundry, restaurants and groceries are very close by I came back to the hotel before leaving turkey

Run Down, Management seems not to care

Posted Nov 17, 2015
Pros: Very friendly staff. Good location.
Cons: Sheesh. New carpet, repairs to the sink and walls, a different cable service. WIFI os sufficient strength and coverage, a different breakfast menu,
Location: Excellent location between Topkapi and the Spice bazaar.
The hotel, to be clear, is wonderfully located if you want to visit the attractions of Sultanahmet or walk over to the Spice Bazaar. The tram line is a few blocks away, so that adds to the convenience. Now, to the hotel. First, few off members speak any English. One expects that in international travel. Secondly, the WIFIE in my room was next to non-existent. That was very disappointing. My sink had a small hole in it with cracks fanning out. The carpet was dingy at best. There are a dozen nicks, cuts, scraps and bald places on the walls. Below knee lever a paint job, some mudding and corner work was in order. Coffee on offer was Nescafe. Yuck. The milk was powered. Yuck, again. The windows leading to the street were leaky of both cold and the various and loud street noises. The bed was very comfortable. The room was very, very cramped. As for the TV, well, two remotes made for confusion, while all of th very many channels are Turkish, meaning no English channel, no French channels, nothing but Turkish. So, bottom line, it is not an international hotel, dingy, badly maintained with a staff that was exceptionally nice, but couldn't understand any of the more popular languages I knew.

Cheap with very small room. Good for short stay. Near Sirkeci station thus near all major attractions.

Perfect Location

Posted Sep 18, 2015
Pros: Location, staff and value.
I loved my stay at Taya Hatun and would recommend this hotel for travelers looking for exceptional value. The room was a good size with an excellent bathroom and big windows to let in plenty of natural light. The location was perfect being away from the noisier areas but very close to a tram stop and Topkapi Palace and within easy walking distance to the top sights in the city. The staff were so friendly and helpful which made the stay even more special. I would definitely stay here again.
