Perfect location for all Istanbul visitors
Breakfast terrace alone is a sufficient reason to book this hotel! How many terraces can provide the unobstructed view of the Blue Mosque and Marmara Sea like this? One of my highlights of my trip was the delicious breakfast buffet as the sun rises from Asia! Anyway, the breakfast terrace is not the only thing that is great! If you are seeking for an optimal location for sightseeing, this may be the best you can find. The Hippodrome is in front of the hotel, the Blue Mosque is a few minute walk away, and Ayasofya and Basilica Cistern are around the corner. Additionally, the tram stop is next door so you can easily go anywhere in Istanbul including the airport. Star Holiday does have few flaws though. The obvious one was the much smaller room than advertised; although I booked an economy room with two doubles, I was shocked to see an extremely tiny room that is sufficient only to rest. The floor insulation is poor, so every step upstairs sounds like a stomp. The Wi-Fi is slow, so you probably cannot upload your photos online. Nonetheless, these flaws are only glaring if you intend to stay in the hotel most of the time, which you should not do when you are in the city that is full of wonders! I still enjoy staying here, because the room is comfortable and has all basic amenities and the staff is friendly and helpful. Unless you need a luxury hotel experience, I highly recommend Star Holiday especially for first-time visitors to Istanbul.

mixture of good and not so good.
The hotel has good and bad points. The location is excellent it is so close to the tourist attractions and close to the tram for transport. Inside the hotel it’s refurbished, clean and nice decor. The room has good facilities like kettle and teabags, fridge, heating and air-conditioning, slippers and a hairdryer. The bad point is the room is very small with hardly any space where you can put your luggage or clothes. The other bad point is the noise from some of the hotel guests and similarly the cleaners in the morning they start talking to each other and the soundproofing is not good. This is a problem for someone who is light sleeper.

Great Location small hotel
room is a little small but star holiday's strong point is its location. there is no complimentary water. bottled water is available at a cost of 3tl per big bottle. reception very helpful on arranging our airport shuttle at 25tl private transfer 1 way. very near hagia sophia basilica cistern blue mosque topkapi palace german fountain and grand bazaar. easy to go back to hotel if you feel tired then go out again after recharging. only negative is room a little small only about 12sqm. cleaning done every other day.

Stay in the hotel
Rooms too small. Washroom smells. We were given a very small room and cotineous bad odor were coming from washroom. Had to keep the fan on in washroom on all the time. 2nd night paid more money to get a better room a little better but occasionally bad odor from washroom. Elevator very funny and take two people only very tight.
