    All was fine. Friendly staff, quiet central location, decent breakfest, good internet connexion, good restaurants around, large (superior) rooms, (from the windows I could see Blue Mosque), terrace with a fine view towards Bosphorus, pick up from the airoport. When I'll return in Istanbul, I'll stay at Obelisk Hotel again.

    Any suggestion: I felt OK.

    Superb

    The staff were really wonderfull, very helpful. They were explaining everything in details, and with a smile on their face. I really felt home. Location is perfect, the best place to stay in Istanbul, close to all the historical places and the street is very nice and romantic. The breakfast was good as well, and the rooms were nice.

    it's not a 5 star hotel, it is a cozy nice hotel from Best Western Group, so good standards and good service.. but just dont expect too much.

    The location was central to the blue mosque, the bazaars etc all in walking distance. The staff were helpfull and having the free afternoon tea at 5pm. We met the other travellers, which made the hotel more friendly.

    Location is the only good thing about the hotel!

    - A/C was not working despite reporting the fault. - Bed were making noise when turning sides - Breakfast options are very limited-Rooms are tiny

  • 6.6
    Good

    The location of this hotel was ideal. All the maojr attractions including the Blue Mosque and the Aya Sofia are within walking distance. Although not as close, I would highly recommend walking to the Grand Bazaar and the Spice Bazaar-one of the most beautiful walks I have ever taken.

    I wasn't too impressed with the sound insulation in the room.

    Fabulous

    Location is perfect! Just few minutes walking to Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia, Ippodrom. Also tram line, market, many sweet cafes and shops are around the hotel. Wi-fi connection is good in hotel rooms. I would like to stay once again here:)

    Unfortunatly, there is one thing - too noisy around the hotel at night time, because of people outside.

  • 6.2
    Good

    Walking distance to restaurants, shopping, tourist sites

    Rooms were small, beds and pillows not very comforatable. Little things when added together can get to be annoying (forgot to give us shampoo, heater too hot so needed air on to offset, pull out mattress too thin, not enoguh outlets, light flickering,etc..)

    Superb

    The staff were exceptional.the location was fantastic and overall I was really happy with the hotel. Would recommend this hotel to anyone wishing to stay in sultanahmet area.

    Walls thin so can best neighbours but apparently this is the case everywhere. Breakfast selection could be better also

    Very good

    staff were very helpful and friendly

    unfortunately we were given a single room even though we had booked a superior double. also the room service for breakfast and other meals were not clear. no menu's in room

    Fabulous

    Triple room was a bit small, but I was upgraded to junior suite at no extra charge by the hotel next day.

    mini bar was not checked before my arrival and had a half empty water bottle.

    Guest rating

    Service from staff was good and it is easy access to Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia. We visited there in mid-Oct and it was raining and cold, but heating system in the room was very good.

    Breakfast starts too late (from 7:30AM) and the room was not very sound-proof and it was quite noisy when people were talking or walking in the corridor.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    We were upgraded to a spacious stylish suite, excellent bed and shower. Breakfast area at the roof offfers an amazing view at Bosphorus. Location of the hotel is superb.

    Breakfast isn't impressive, same everyday and pity that they don't serve fresh coffee.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    Competent English speaking staff on reception and in the restaurant. Breakfast was extensive and regularly topped up throughout the 2 hour period with freshly made food. Ensuring that whatever time you went to breakfast the food was plentiful and fresh. Also pleasing that the roof top terrace restaurant/bar is open all day. Many hotels in the vicinity close theirs up after breakfast which is a great shame when one of their main attractions is that they have a roof top terrace to see the spectacular & unique views of Istanbul. Although a quiet location, it is central, well lit with a selection of restaurants literally 1 minutes walk.

    I requested a Twin Room when booking with Booked.net specifically stating it was my mother and I sharing a room. On arrival we were given a Double. The hotel showed me the reservation by Booked.net and this information had not been conveyed to them. The hotel was full and was unable to do anything that night. In the morning the hotel arranged for a room that met our original booking requirements. Whilst disappointing and upsetting to arrive to this situation after a long days travelling we were pleased with the way in which the hotel dealt with the matter.
