A great hidden gem
Hotel Cigno İstanbul is a real hidden gem, I have been in Istanbul alot of times, I have been around Turkey alot and this hotel achieve a really hard equation of price/performance. You don't pay ALOT but you definitely get the most out of what you paid and even more. In terms of cleanliness the hotel is clean, the rooms are good the air conditioning system is great. The rooms are comfortable. The bathroom is clean, shampoo, shower gel, soup everything is there. The location is perfect, but take take there are 2 ways to go to the hotel one of them is high the other one is good. You can visit literally every where from the hotel it's near Çemberlitaş tramway Station. Sultan Ahmet and Ayasofya is easily reachable from the hotel. Burhan Bey the owner of the hotel is the kind of host you want to stay with, he speaks English perfectly with a great Accent no trouble understanding /explaining to him. He is very thoughtful and treats guests respectfully. The check in was smooth and lovely. There is an elevator in the hotel which is a really good option when you have bags and stuff. I recommend hotel Cigno İstanbul and it will be on the top of my list of favorite hotels whenever I visit Istanbul for business or leasuire.
