Wonderful boutique hotel near the Grand Bazaar

Posted 11-Jul-2014
The Niles is a wonderful hotel with an incredibly pleasant and warm staff. The rooms are a tad small, but the beautiful rooftop terrace more than makes up for this small detail. That being said, I would happily stay here again. I would/will recommend this place to my family and friends.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location near to a tram stop but down a side street so very quiet.

Niles Hotel

Posted 04-Jul-2014
Pros: The friendliness of the hotel staffs....their services.
Location: As tourist who wants to walk to sightseeing, shopping, eating et al, this is perfect.
Foremost, the hotel staffs are superb. They are accommodating and approachable. Always smiles to the guests, always say hello. The room is small like most European hotels but it's comfortable. The location for me is perfect it is close to most sightseeing sights.

Classy hotel in old city, Istanbul.

Posted 03-Jul-2014
Pros: The looks of the hotel and its cleanliness. Everything is modern and fresh. You are tops.
Cons: Nothing needs to be changed
Location: We loved the location of Hotel Niles because we could walk to the Bazaar and to the Fatih area.
When we drove in a cab from the ship thru Old Town, we were terrified: the crowded streets, the reckless drivers, the dangerous speed of ourf driver, the dirty, cluttered streets... Then we pulled up in front of Hotel Istanbul. Everything changed!. The looks of the hotel; the kindly staff (especially the 4 dear young people at the gorgeous roof-top café/restaurant); the clean sheets every day and the sweet lady who cleaned for us, the desk attendants, .the magnificent view; the food and drinks. YOU were the best part of our once-in-a-lifetime Cruise/Vacation. Wish we could come again. GOD IS GREAT. Bruce Bateman

Well located for seeing the sights of Istanbul

Posted 04-Jun-2014
Pros: Staff, comfort and location.
Cons: Breakfast.
Location: Close by the Grand Bazaar and the main tram line for easy access to other parts of Istanbul. Easy walk to Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque.
The welcome at the hotel could not be faulted. Even with a delay in flight arrival of 1 hour and a further hour needed to pass the Passport Control (ridiculous), the driver was still waiting for us for the transfer to the hotel. An unrequested upgrade from standard double to junior suite was also a welcome surprise. The staff could not have been friendlier and the crowing glory was a surprise birthday cake and greetings for my wife - they picked up the significant date from the check-in procedure. All in all, a great place to stay for an exploration of the historic sites of Istanbul.

Pros: Location and wonderful staff.
Cons: The WC was very small - difficult to blow dry hair and little space for toiletries .
Location: Close to ALL major sites in the old city.
This is a great hotel in the heart of the old city- walking distance to all major attractions.The staff are exceptional in their attention to detail and level of helpfulness. Roof top terrace has a beautiful view and is a great place to have breakfast or relax before dinner.

Boutique hotel in Istanbul

Posted 15-May-2014
A very pleasant stay in a boutique hotel in Istanbul. Very warmly welcomed and allowed to check into the room early. Even offered a complimentary breakfast. Room was slightly cramped and the bathroom too but furnishings and décor were fine and overall quite comfortable. Good choice at breakfast and a perfect view across the Sea of Marmara. Staff very polite and helpful on all occasions. Would definitely stay there again.

What a welcome! Such a beautiful place. From the time we booked until the day we left, these guys were on it. The room was fantastic, the breakfast a+.
