Hotels is under cleaning ( mostly paintjob). Needs just anlittle care for some rooms. However close to all needed to be seen or done in Istanbul. Breakfast was enough and good.
It is a recommended hotel, since even staff is well responding, polite and really helpful. I will certainly stay in on my nexr April stay in Istanbul.
One thing: if you are looking for some relax, don't choose street rooms: noisy because of one of the mainstreets in Istanbul. Also don't get out at Aksaray metro station. It is very close ( even not 100 m from Yenikapi station), and last: this is to the hotel Manage ( very nice guy by the way!): plese bust the but of your sauna guy: too lazy and not helpful at all.
Over all, it is a real budget and clean nice hotel to choose in Istanbul!!
This is an obscure little hotel on a backstreet in Istanbul. The staff tries hard, and the facilities are clean. Lower price so you need to expect lower comfort. Hallway lights are always off unless you stamp your foot to make noise. Elevator exists but is tiny and around the back of the lounge so not immediately visible. Street can be noisy in the morning, especially garbage trucks at 5:00am. Breakfast is simple but earnestly offered in windowless basement room. Some electric switches were broken. Doors are a little flimsy. Double-bed room is very small, so recommend using room with three single beds to get larger space.
Aksaray is an easy metro ride from Istanbul's Ataturk Airport. The neighborhood borders the Old City, the area formerly called Constantinople and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1985. A short tram ride from Aksaray takes visitors past ancient city walls to all the famous sites of Turkey's largest city, including the Blue Mosque, Topkapı Palace, Hagia Sophia, and the Grand Bazaar.
