4/10 Fair

Avoid! I've traveled to nearly 50 countries and have stayed in a wide variety of hotels and hands down, this was one of the worst. Hotel staff mixed up reservations and gave our room away. As a compensation, they offered to pack a "free" breakfast for us early the next morning, as we had an early flight to catch. The breakfast was already paid for and they offered this as a compensation for their mix up. Despite having a receipt that verified a paid breakfast, staff was adamant it was not. They wound up compensating by $14USD in cash after a lot of negotiating. This was the last night on our anniversary trip and disappointing. Paid for a room w a sea view and wound up in a cramped room- bathroom door wouldn't stay open and even a quick shower flooded the bathroom floor because of poor design. Lumpy uneven bed and half used hygiene supplies were left from the guests beforehand; was the room cleaned prior to our visit? Mini fridge also did not work in the room. All in all, this was a mess of a hotel- would not recommend to anyone. The only perk is it's location and being so walkable to various sites around SultanAhmet. This was my 3rd time to Istanbul- will definitely be coming back to Turkey but never this hotel.

Exceptional Stay
My stay was exceptional. The room was excellent. The staff was very helpful. The owner Mahmet was an amazing person. He went above and beyond the call of duty to assist me.

I booked adnd paid for a standard triple room with city view three months early. Yet on my arrival, the checkin clerk did not have any booked rooms. He tried to flog a basement damp room then another double room with a wall facing the window in another building. On our rejection he then gave us an ultimatum that he had only one last room (in Laila hotel, which i had originally booked) which was a double room facing a back alley. it was a double room with a third bed shoved in to make it cramped and tiny. In no way it was like the pictures they have on site. We were tired having travelled long distance with kids and baggage so accepted. It is bad management on this hotel side. The room itself was clean and newly furbished but the AC and fridge barely worked in the hot weather. The door locks and elevator also broke down during our stay. Only plus side was the hotel being close to Attractions. I feel, this hotel is ok if you can compromise but I wont be using them in future. Best to stay in a reputable/professional hotel further away and use Tramway to travel daily.

The rooms and washrooms in this hotel are TINY. It’s not an ideal property for a family.

rude and appalling service from 1 staff member
The customer service is awful. Very disappointing. When we first walked in, it wasn’t a very friendly environment but we ignored that. I then came down to ask about breakfast the next morning and was told my booking didn’t include it. I showed a screenshot which says it was included and was repeatedly told it wasn’t. To be fair, the lady at reception was nice about it and I could see she was following her bosses instructions. However the man I assume was the manager moved out of behind the desk as I asked about the breakfast to walk right outside the door then as she was asking him I could see him shaking his head profusely repeatedly then as if he is giving in ‘shooing’ with his hands as if we were a problem without talking to us. Another rude incident was when I asked for a weight to weigh my bags and was brought a very small weight to use which was the size of my hand and unable to be used on my 30kg bag. I came downstairs thinking maybe I’m using it wrong so I asked the same man behind the desk to demonstrate it infront of me. He replied with ‘No because I have work to do I don’t want to’ and pointed at his computer... another member of staff came up with us. If it weren’t for his rude behaviour the rating would have been better as he was ridiculous. Not sure if he had a problem with us or it was his normal personality but it is affecting business. Absolutely ridiculous behaviour and I don’t understand how you can run a hotel and act like the customers are problematic
