                  good location

                  poor and old furniture, small and a little overpriced rooms

                  Very pleasant surprise! We arrived with night flight and they not only enabled us early check in (7.30am) but we could see selection of rooms that were ready and chose the one we liked most. Hotel's location is excellent - tram a minute walk away, lots of attractions nearby. It seems that a part of the hotel where we stayed in was recently renovated - rooms had modern design, bathroom was spotlessly clean, good quality overall.

                  There wes no mini bar or safe in the room, however to us this was not important.

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  Location is great - walking distance to everything in the old city, plus plenty of places to eat & shop. Front desk staff very helpful - English was fluent.

                  Room at back of hotel - good because no street noise, but pretty small (this was basic room, others at front of hotel were bigger) Difficult to move around if you have a lot of luggage. Ensuite tiny. Still, you're only there to sleep - it is Istanbul & everything is open until very late! Wifi only in lobby - would have been nice to have it in the room.

                • Older travelers

                  conveniently located , helpful staff , clean environment

                  We weren't happy with our first room choice and Manager upgraded us to very nice room with a sitting room. Also liked the 15 minute free internet in lounge off reception.

                  The fact that they said they had a swimming pool and it was actually at the hotel next door.

                  Hotel is fine , price is too much for for the hotel level

                  comparing with the same room level price in any near hotel Ilkay has the most expensive room price within the hotels around

                  Hotel staff and location was really good.

                  The room was really really small, and the bathroom - really not very good.

                  The Hotel although aging was kept scrupulously clean. The furniture was comfortable and the breakfasts were good. We always felt safe and secure there. The location on the main tram line through the city was convenient to all the main attractions of Istanbul.

                  Internet access is by satellite which meant we could receive emails but had to use webmail to send. There was no in-room safe.

                  Very helpful staff. Spotlessly clean. Excellent price and value for money. The welcome talk by the hotels Client Relationship Manager was very informative and proved extremely useful for us as we were only staying a short while and it enabled us to get the most out of our stay. Would recommend highly.

                  Very good location. In the heart of the city. Walking distance to Sultanahmet and easy access to tram line. Staff was friendly and helpful. Reasonable breakfast.

                  Room was really tiny and cramped for a supposedly triple room. Washroom was also very small. Doors (both washroom and room) jammed and needed some effort to open. There was a small issue with water supply on one of the mornings but nothing major. Not the most comfortable beds.

                  All services provided by the hotel were very nice.

                  There was a very loud noise from building area all night from the window of our room.

                  This is my 3 visit. Unlike many hotels I am always recognised by all staff.. Breakfast good . I like the cheerfull atmosphere.. Convenient for the asian side ferries. Railway station. Only a short walk to touist areas. If I can avoid taxis the scourge of my life this position is good. . Would stay again.
