Mixed review

For the first two nights we were taken to the hippodrome apartment hotel down from and across the road from the main hotel. Those rooms were very, very tired. The hallways were depressing, carpets and furniture were dingy, etc.. The bathrooms were very dirty with no water pressure in the showers. We asked to be moved to the main hotel for the last two nights, and it was much better---mostly clean (except under the bed), modern, and quiet. We would have been happy with our hotel choice if we had been in the main hotel the entire stay.

Hippodrome Hotel- Istanbul- Turkey

The hotel's location is perfect to visit most landmarks, the train station is also at walking distance (about 5minutes). The staff are great, and make your stay very enjoyable. As I was leaving, I forgot a pair of very expensive sunglasses in the hotel room, I left my luggage with the concierge and since I had a few hours before my departure I went to run some last errands. When I went back to the hotel to pick up my luggage to go to the airport, the housekeeper came running down the lobby to give me my sunglasses, although I hadn't even realized that I had forgotten them. I really appreciate her honesty. The receptionist [...] who speaks good English, Russian and some French went beyond his duty to help us daily, explaining to us how to get to different locations etc...he really deserves a raise for his excellent customer service skills. We will definitely return to that hotel and will recommend it to others.
