Lovely hotel in a convenient location!
The hotel was situated about 5-10 minutes walk from the Hagia Sophia. It’s a quiet corner of the street. There were plenty of restaurants and eateries nearby. 10 minuets walk from the Sultanahmet tram stop. However, one negative thing about it is there wasn’t sound proof between rooms. So we have always been disturbed during midnights and early neighbours by rooms next to us.

Fantastic break
Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms cleaned, new towels and toiletries every day. Would definitely stay again and recommend. Ideally situated for sightseeing.

Avicenna Hotel - Special Class, Istanbul
Not a nice hotel, breakfast is awful and I love the Turkish style breakfast in hotels but that was just something else. Rooms are very small. Also left some things in the hotel but when the hotel were contacted apparently there was nothing at all left in the room ... which was a lie as I purposely left things that I didn’t want to take home there was just 1 thing I left on the dressing table that I didn’t want to leave. I wouldn’t recommend this hotel at all the only positive was the location although there are lots of nearby hotels that will make you happier.
