      Kumkapi Istanbul--charmed!

      Loved the location; charming building, charming staff. A nice European-style breakfast, clean and quaint rooms, and the plethora of cafes streetside was wonderful!

      Good hotel for location and price. The "king" room, offered as an alternative to a twin for 2 people was not large and only had a standard double bed but otherwise comfortable.

    • 6.0.Good

      Managed the basics, but little more.

      The hotel is very simple. If all you need is a bed and shower, it's a good value. First the good – the bed was comfortable, the rainfall shower was nice, check-in and check-out was easy, the food at the rooftop breakfast was acceptable and the view of the Sea of Marmara was a lovely way to start the morning. The location was also fine. It's about a 10 minute uphill walk to the Grand Bazaar. Negatives – the room was very tight. We had to squeeze around furniture to get to the far side of the bed. While all of the rooms are non-smoking, we still woke up with our room smelling of cigarette smoke every morning. If you're very sensitive, steer clear. Maybe it was wafting down from smokers on the rooftop terrace? Windows open or closed and A/C on or off didn't seem to make any difference. The WiFi worked fine in the lobby, but was basically non-existent in our room. Staff was also a mixed bag, mostly they were very friendly, but one day, we were waiting for a tour pickup and our driver was a bit late and I asked the front desk if he would call and reconfirm our pickup time. His first response was to demand to know why I hadn't booked the tour through the hotel.

    • 8.0.Very good

      We had a nice stay and the rooms are relatively clean. The location is within 12 min walk to tourist areas. One thing to note is that the tram station is uphill so keep this in mind for older people who may have problems walking uphill for 5 min. Overall, we had a pleasant stay and the free breakfast had a good variety, the terrace dining area is very nice. Good value for what we paid.
