A renovated 19th century gem in Istanbul’s Old City
Located in the Sultanahmet district, also known as the Old City, the 48-room New Avicenna Hotel offers breezy, open, Mediterranean-style amenities in Istanbul. The hotel is a three-story complex made up of three different 19th century Ottoman buildings that were refurbished and transformed into a hotel in the 1990s. It was completely renovated and redecorated again in 2008. The buildings are connected with walkways that look down upon a beautiful Turkish garden. The décor is enhanced by using splendid fabrics with Ottoman influences. Some rooms have views of the sea from their own balconies. The hotel is just a short walk from such attractions as Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia Museum, and the Blue Mosque. The New Avicenna Hotel is also close to Ataturk International Airport. On the top floor of the hotel is the Sipsi restaurant which provides patrons with a superb outlook over the Marmara Sea. The hotel aims to provide traditional Turkish hospitality with an insight into the culture of Istanbul.

Spot-On !

Great location. Walking distance to main attractions - Trams - Ferry - Restaurants - Shopping. Very friendly and helpful staff. Prompt action on our room request by email. Even got our Bus tickets done in a jiffy. Excellent breakfast on the roof-top bar/restaurant with great view. Hope to return soon to this little gem, behind Blue Mosque. Much appreciated.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Up the road, behind the Blue Mosque (market place) is a covered restaurant, with live Turkish Music after 7pm, everyday. The musicians sing with Joy and Soul. You also get to see a short version of Sema - Whirling Dervish movements. Good food and great atmosphere. The locals patronise this place, a good sign.

Perfect Little Hotel

It is a great little hotel at the perfect location. So many nice shops and restaurants around and 5 min walk to Blue moaque and Hagia Sophia and Topkapi palace. The whole area is safe and stays open late. All the things are available right there. Will stay again.

Great Location and Fantastic area

When we arrive at the airport we were very frustrated because the promised transportation transfer from the airport was not available but once we arrive at the Hotel we found the staff very accommodating and courteous. They even offered to check why they forgot to send the guy to pick us up. WE found the rooms clean and tiny and very well ventilated. The things that you can you for free are well labeled as well as those you need to pay for. Warning labels are also there wherein it reminds you not to drink the water in the faucet. Location wise it is well situated near the important places to visit. It is 5 minute walk to Arasta Bazar and 8 to 10 minutes to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. It is about half an hour walk to Grand bazaar and all around you can see restaurants and food mall. The TRam is within walking distance as well since the station is besides the Hagia Sofia as well as the Big bus tours.

Avicenna - recommended

Avicenna is a great place to stay in Istanbul. Room was small but clean. Staff is extremely helpful, and the included breakfast was very good. Location is perfect - you can spend several days walking to many of the best attractions in the city. Also very close to the tram, Bosphorus and great restaurants.

Nicely decorated, nice staff, some room trade offs

We had a very nice stay! However, its a personal thing whether you like the Hotel. You will like it if you: - like the style (look at the photos) - love nicely and consistently designed interior - want to have drink or meal on on the restaurant terrace with a wonderful view over the Bosporus You won't like it if you: - insist on solid craftmanship of housebuilding (if yes, are you sure you will like Istanbul?) - don't like to change rooms in case you are not 100% satisfied. Some rooms don't have WiFi coverage. There are quiet and not so quiet rooms.
