Location is excellent, staff is helpful, hotel will be undergoing a renovation soon.
the location was perfect and stunning views from the breakfast room plus staff helpful
needs a bit more range in the breakfast offering
Excellent location and great view of the Blue Mosque. Breakfast was pretty good.
Bed felt damp during the first night. Shower was not separated at all from the rest of the bathroom, so the entire bathroom was soaked after a shower and wasn't really ever dry. You had to sit sideways on the toilet. The staff at the front door were not too welcoming and were asleep later at night and early in the morning.
Friendlessness of the staff, cleanness of the rooms.
the rooms are way small, it was very deceiving pictures on the web site, the breakfast menu is way less than minimal,
Por favor escreva pelo menos 15 palavras Excelent location. Marvelous view from breakfast room. Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms. Nice breakfast. Very nice place to stay, I surely recommend it.
You cannot beat the location and the view from the breakfast room. Everyone was eager to help us during our stay.
The rooms were clean, service was good( friendly and helpful staff). Location was very good, but next time I visit Istanbul, I will prefer accommodation in Beyoglu instead of Sultanhamet.
Lots of mosquitos, the ac was making a weird noise & I don't recommend the breakfast( very bad coffee, the food could be much better)
Good location. Free internet WiFi. Breakfast is OK but no more. Great view from breakfast roof terrace. You are waken up at 05.30 every morning by the prayer call so you do not miss anything of the day.
The hotel does not look anything near what is shown on photos. Rooms are small and dark, and you have to enter the shower cabin to close toilet door around you and then come out to sit down. Rooms on first floor have only very small windows down by the floor, you feel really like in a cell with no outside contact at all. Door cannot be locked from inside.
The location of Spectra is its main asset. Located at the corner of Hypodrome square, it offers views on the Sultan Ahmet mosque, Aya Sofia and on the other side the sea. The room was cleaned, even if we left late in the early afternoon. But my second stay in another room did not have these upsides!
I have stayed here two times, in two different rooms. The view and the room (402) during the first time was an 8. Excellent views and proper room. The second room (305) had a view on a busy street, and the bathroom was of lesser quality than the first room. Some lights were not working, the tiles seemed old and cracking, the cleaning of the room was done inregular. I would give this stay only a 6 or 7.
Its location. Could eat at its restaurant on site if you want.
Great location right on the corner of the hippodrome. Lovely staff, very helpful. To be fair small rooms but it is an old ottoman house so it makes up for it with charm. Great breakfast room up top with super views of the mosque. Delightful stay.
The hotel is very clean and located perfectly in the old city with a nice view to sultan ahmet and higa sophia. Its only 5munits walking to sultan ahmet tram station. The view from the resturant up is amazing. Internet is available in all rooms. Common services like grocery, lanundry and pharmacy are available around the hotel. Breakfast is simple but really nice. Toilts are small but very clean.
Be aware the rooms are very small and the photos in booking are skewed in away to show a larger space. The first two nights i spent in a room of 2.5x3.5 meter i couldnt even move inside the room and I put my baby stroller outdside in the corridore. They shifted me later to a bigger room with nice view toward sultan Ahmet mosque. So if you plan to book in this hotel ask for room # 204 or #304 the ones located on the corner they are bigger and have a nice view. Booked.net should review the room size mentioned in the web site they are not larger than 12sqm while its 20 sqm in booking website. Another disadvantage the checkout time is 12:00pm sharpe
