    Friendly and helpful personnel

    The shower was not practical at all. The elevator too small.could not use my credit card without a pin, had to pay cash. The exchange rate used had nothing to do with thr real rate at the time of payment. I was excessively over-charged (by about $40).

    The staff were friendly, the breakfast was good but the room for two was so small you can hardly move in it. In addition, the tv has no English channels.

    Location is perfect to visit all the attraction of the old city

    Very good

    It was in a very convenient location, with only 5-7 mins away from Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean.

    The rooms were old and the shower did not have a curtain. Sound proof is not the best, you can hear other guests walking in the corridors. However, this is a perfect hotel for budget travellers and it's quite safe.

    Fabulous

    Meddusa Hotel is located in superlative position from Istanbul main tourists attractions. The rooms are very clean and they have the type of breakfast you need to walk the whole day. If your plan to visit the city for a short brake then I'll advice to stay there. But if you want to live Istanbul and compromise with the distance from Haja Sofia and the Topkapi Palace, then move to Beyoglu or Taksim square, Turkish people prefere this part of the city.

    Rooms are small (even for only sleeping) and the staff can hardly understand a complex English sentence.

    Good

    The location was perfect. Walking distance to the Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque..well, everything.

    They need new beds and the bathroom was, well, interesting. Very small and a shower that soaks the entire bathroom including the electrical socket. Just bring your spirit for adventure and chalk it up to part of the experience.

    Fabulous

    The very friendly and efficient hotel staff who would go out of their way to help. The wonderful breakfast and roof top terrace. The relaxing, quiet and laid back nature of the hotel whilst being efficient at the same time.

    There was no hot water on the final morning of our trip. The hotel was diffiucult to find and when you type the hotel's address in Google Maps, the correct location of the hotel is not displayed.

    Superb

    Very good situation : 5-10 min walking from main interest points in Istanbul : Aya Sofya, Blue Camii, Topkapi Sarayi, Bazar. Very helpful staff. Rooms are clean and breakfast good with nice view on Maramara's sea.

    Exceptional

    The staff are friendly and the wash room is big and very comfort,clean and the room itself is value for money. It is near to the tram station and in the middle of old town which can walk to all tourist attractions.

    Superb

    Friendly, helpful staff, small, but tidy rooms in the center of the city. Very good location! Really worth it's price!

    The street is a bit noisy, but with closed windows + AC, no problem.

  • 6.6
    Good

    Location. Walking distance from most major attractions in Sultan Ahmet area of Istanbul. Helpful staff.

    The room was small. Although the hotel had slightly bigger rooms, customers coming first (or through Booked.net) are probably given the smaller ones. Secondly, there is absolutely no way to find a place to even stop and unload your car near the hotel, as all places are always taken. The only way is to go to a car parking 200 m away and unload (although the hotel staff is ever eager to help).

    Guest rating

    Location was perfect.....being right in the middle of the Old Town was great, with many of the main attractions within 10 minutes walking distance.

    Our room was very small, with only one accessible power point which was close to the ceiling as it was used for the tv. We also found it to be quite noisy, as the hotel restaurant was directly above our room. The room size is better suited towards solo travellers rather than couples.
