A comfortable hotel close to Istanbul attractions

Posted 23-Oct-2014
Pros: See above Have completed a review for Trip Advisor
Cons: Would be prepared to stay again with current offering .
Location: All major attractions readily accessable using the tram at the end of the street
From the time we were met at the airport to the time the hotel arranged a car to take us to meet our cruise , our stay was most enjoyable .The staff were welcoming , friendly and always available to make suggestions on our itinerary . The room was smaller then we expected but was spotlessly clean as was the bathroom . Overlooking the street but no noise . The rooftop terrace was a very pleasant environment for breakfast , a rest during the day or sharing a drink in a cool breeze in the evening . Would recommend hotel to friends looking to stay in a historical environment with convenient public transport .

Great Little Hotel

Posted 18-Oct-2014
Pros: Very clean hotel and room.
Location: Down a little side street so use hotel shuttle, worth the 20 euros. So close to all sites of historic interest and very close to tram stop.
Lovely Hotel, close to the historic centre of Istanbul. 2 min walk to Grand Bazzar. Great staff, very helpful and friendly, can't do enough for you.

Excellent Hotel

Posted 08-Oct-2014
This boutique hotel is a gem in Istanbul.Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming, as well as very helpful. Frist time ever that we had front desk staff sit down and tell us about sights and how to use the tram system etc. with a Turkish coffee that they provided with chocolates and fruit. It was very informative and very helpful. The hotel is close to most of the sights and the tram is only a five minute walk away. Would definitely go back if ever in Istanbul again.

Charming Boutique Hotel

Posted 08-Oct-2014
Pros: Very clean, friendly staff
Cons: There was only one available electric outlet in the room. I had a small power strip with me that saved us with multiple devices wanting charging.
Location: Located near the Grand Bazaar. You will want transportation to visit the main cultural sites.
My mom and I stayed at the Hotel Niles for 3 nights after a cruise. The hotel is a little difficult to find, so make sure you have the address written in Turkish for your taxi or transport. It is also in a hilly area, so keep that in mind. It is quite close to the Grand Bazaar, but you will definitely want transport to Topkapi and Hagia Sophia. The room was small, but very clean. It even had a functioning window. The bath was small with just a tiny shower, but again very clean. The only hitch -- only one available electric outlet in the entire room. The staff is very nice and helpful, especially Oz, the desk captain. English is not super, but passable. I also heard them speaking German and French, as well as Turkish, of course. Breakfast is good and served buffet on the roof terrace. The bar is open 24 hours. Prices are in Euros all through the hotel. Overall, a good value and a nice stay.

Beautiful roof top!

Posted 27-Sep-2014
Pros: The old world charm.
Cons: The drapes need to be cleaned.
Location: It's close to all the Sultanamet attractions. The Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sofia and Basilica Cistern.
Very central location and pleasant staff. Room was small but efficiently set up. Breakfast experience was the best served on the scenic roof top. Would definitely return.

friendly and well placed

Posted 19-Sep-2014
Pros: It is well placed, with friendly staff.
Cons: Keeping the scrambled egg hot needed improvement.
Location: All the tourist sites were within walking distance and the trams stopped closeby. Excellent for the Grand Bazaar.
We would highly recommend this small hotel. It is centrally placed down a traffic free side street. The staff were very helpful. The room, though small, was tastefully decorated and very clean. Breakfast is taken on a charming roof terrace with views.

Cute little hotel that makes you feel comfortable.

Posted 01-Sep-2014
This hotel is in a great location to get to all the big attractions on foot. The staff is awesome and very helpful. They made excellent restaurant recommendations. Everyone was friendly. Small touches upon arrival and after hours on the rooftop terrace made the stay extra special. The hotel is generally very clean. I was very happy with cleanliness in our room. I wish the bathrooms were in slightly better shape (there is some mould in the shower). Also there was someone else's hair on the bathroom floor. These are minor complaints but any improvements to the bathrooms would bring the hotel to an even higher level.

Great Hotel, very convenient location

Posted 28-Aug-2014
Pros: The staff were exemplary, always friendly and approachable, knowledgable about the area and ever ready to assist with queries.
Cons: All was very positive.
Location: Central but quiet location close to so e of the most wonderful buildings in the world such as Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque.
We had a great time in Istanbul and much of this was due to the quality of the Hotel and it's staff. The roof terrace overlooking the Sea of Marmara was an unexpected bonus.
