    Helpfulness of staff and convenience of hotel in Old Town

    Continental breakfast was poor. European style, but stale bread, no eggs or cold meats and you had to pay for orange juice??? Sickly red cherry juice was free. Secondly they charged me 5 Lira for a coke in the small restaurant upstairs yet a coke from the minibar was only 2.50 Lira??? Am I missing something? Doesn't add up?

    The room assigned to us was un the basement, lack of light, noisy and bad distribution of the bathroom.The breakfast wasnot on time 7:00am.

    The best thing about the Mevlana Boutique Hotel- Sultanahmet- Istanbul is the proximity of the places one needs to visit: Aya Sophia- Blue Mosque- Topkapi- Grand Bazaar etc..Apart from that, the hotel is clean and the staff are friendly. The buffet breakfast is good, and the small terrace restaurant offers a beautiful view on the sea of Marmara. But there is a very limited choice for dinner, but this doesn't matter, since the neighborhood is full of good restaurants. But I found the price to be a little exaggerated...

    The rooms are small, and the furniture is very limited: there is no place to put your luggage, not even a small chair! Also, one would expect to find a Kleenex box in the room, and some toothpaste in the bathroom...

  • Couple

    The hotel is in a very good location, very close to the sights of Sultanahmed. It's in a rather quiet street and it's a 5 to 10 min walk to the tram. The little restaurant on the rooftop is very nice for breakfast and has a fantastic view over the Bosporus. We even saw dolphins during breakfast...Breakfast is good but you have to pay 7 tl for the juice!

    The doors and walls seem to be very thin - you can hear everyone and it was therefore sometimes quite noisy. Our room was very small and dark and the bathroom is very cold. The hotel is not boutique-like at all - just a very average tourist hotel. We were reminded to pay for our room several times in quite an unfriendly way, although we had initially agreed to pay when we would check-out. The terrace is nice but you can only use it as a guest of the restaurant. A common lounge/room on the top would be nice.
