Cosy, low-price, supportive management

Everybody was really serviceable and ready to help. Rooms are clean and comfortable, though somewhat small (I got a Street view, which is nicer). Restaurant is open until 2AM. Excellent cook.

Comfort Hotel

I got the twin bed deal and so the room had enough space for one. There are larger options for more people. Close to the tour sites and Blue Mosque. There is a 30 Euro pick-up charge from the airport even though the site says airport pick-up available. Return to airport shuttle is 5 Euro. Staff are friendly and the free breakfast is well served. Close to stores and restaurants.

Great value for money

Great location, steps away from the Gulhane tram stop. Also walking distance to all the sites you would want to visit at Sultanahmet (Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, the Underground Cistern, Archeology Museum, Museum of Islamic Art, etc.). My room was on the small side, but it was perfectly adequate for my needs and was very comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful and the complimentary breakfast buffet was quite generous. The only "complaint" that I have is that the wifi signal on the upper floors (where my room was) was kinda weak. I didn't mind walking down to the lobby with my iPad.

Good value

Ideally situated for sightseeing. Near Gulhane tram stop. Friendly staff, guests get 10% discount at restaurant. Wifi could be better, but otherwise wholly satisfied.

LOCATION

Great location, Great and helpful staff, but my room was overbooked and they sent me to another hotel for one night, which was not comparable to their hotel.

If you stay in this hotel, do not book a tour, just do it yourself as everything is walking distance.

Good value, nice location

The hotel is very conveniently located near to the Gülhane tram stop, only a few minutes' walk from the Topkapı Palace, Haghia Sophia, Blue Mosque and the Spice Bazaar. The area is quite pleasant, with street restaurants in the pedestrianised alleyway at the back and souvenir shops nearby. The restaurants in the vicinity are slightly cheaper than those in Sultanahmet and some of them have roof terraces with views over the Bosphorus [the Ağan doesn't have a roof terrace]. The hotel staff were friendly and efficient, and check-in was straigtforward. Both the bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean, although some of the fixtures looked like they were on their last legs [broken light switch, cracked window pane etc.] and the bed linen had a few holes in it. The buffet breakfast served from 7-10 am each day offers a good choice of Turkish specialities as well as cereal, bread, croissants, jam, cold meats and cheese. The TV in the room offers hundreds of channels, but almost all are in Turkish, Arabic or Italian. There is a very limited selection of channels in English and other N European languages. The public areas of the hotel are pleasant, clean and well-maintained.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

It is worth buying an Istanbulkart for travelling on public transport, as this will save money and time buying tickets for individual trips. The Istanbulkart can also be used on the Bosphorus ferries to Üsküdar and Kadıköy, and the Princes' Island ferries. On most forms of public transport the fare is 1.95 TL [about 65p]; a single fare on the Princes' Island ferries is 2.50 TL [83p]. Istanbulkart can be bought from a machine at the entrance to the Atatürk Airport metro station and charged up with a credit card or banknotes from a separate machine next to it.
