    Good breakfast. Good location.

    The room that we stayed is a bit small. The entrance of the hotel is not very clear on high street. Need to ask around to find it. The photo shown the outside of the hotel on the web is not the right one.

    the location is perfect as you reach everything by a short walk.

    the picture showing on Booked.net is a restaurant called medusa very close to the hotel but has nothing to do with it!!! the hotel was alright but don't expect too much... rooms quite small but for a short trip and the price absolutly okay.

    The hospitality of all the staff is excellent , we feel at home, we have all the information that we asked for.

    No possibilite to have an " american coffe" or filter coffe. Suggestion:Just buy a machine for filter coffe .

    excellent location, short walking distance to major sights like the Old Market, Aghia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and Blue Mosque. very very friendly, kind and helpful staff, they changed our room very eagerly when we told them we had a problem with the first room's view, very clean, offered quite cheap airport transfer service, rooms small but nice, nice view from terrace where breakfast is served

    most of the staff should learn to speak english, only one of them spoke english really well, nevertheless they all tried and were very kind. there were some small problems that they could fix such as a small leak in the bathroom, but nothing serious, breakfast was quite limited and boring so they should work on that

    The location + the price compared to the location.

    The bathroom had seen its best days...

  • Couple
    7.0

    Friendly staff, nice and clean room, location was OK so we could reach the tramvay easily. Highlight was the rich breakfast buffet on the roof terrace - great view included!!!

    The rooms were very small, a shower cubicle didn´t really exist: taking a shower meant flooding the whole bathroom!

  • Family with children

    at was very close to all the attarctions of istanbul. easy to get to. the breqakfast was good

    the rooms were tiny! and sufficating. the ac didn't work good. the paying of the bill was confusing at the end. I am not quite sure we paid the right amount after they converted euros to turkish lira, not real clear

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    close to city attractions and restaurants

    the douche is in the toilet area and the whole area would go under water if you took a shower. The toilet flash made a noise every 5 minutes the whole day, so it was difficult to have a night sleep. The internet connection was not stable and I only had internet for a short while.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    The price and location

    There where a smell of cigarette smoke, despite the fact that it is forbidden to smoke.

  • Single
    6.2

    Location convenient to Grabs Bazaar abs other sites.

    Restaurant is actually only a terrace for breakfast. Rooms very tiny. Shower primitive. Overall atmosphere was depressing. If all you need is a place to leave your bags and sleep it works. But only for solo traceler. Inadequate for more than one. Staff are well intended but Gage difficulty conversing in English

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    The staff was very friendly and will help you whenever you want.

    It's an old hotel with thin walls: you hear a lot at night.

  • Couple
    8.2

    The location was excellent although when looking up the hotel on google maps the location was incorrect. The hotel is on a quiet street yet only minutes away from the action. They let us check in at 10:30am after a 12 hour bus to Istanbul even though it says check in from 2pm which was really nice. For the price the bedroom and facilities were exactly what we wanted although the bedroom/bathroom were a tad on the small side. If you are looking for a budget hotel in Istanbul I would definitely recommend the Meddusa.
