Old City's attractions are in easy walking distance from this family-owned hotel. Located across the street from the Beyazit tram stop and a short walk from the Cankurtaran train station, all of Istanbul is within reach of the Niles' guests. The hotel's classic exterior looks far more elegant than guests typically expect of a 3-star hotel. Inside is a classic Turkish style, which provides warm comfort and wraps guests in a feeling of history. The hotel serves a complimentary breakfast on the rooftop Terrace Café. 

Rooms

The hotel has 29 guest rooms with private bathrooms. There are single and double rooms. The rooms are decorated simply. The color palette of pale yellow and red complements the wooden furniture. Suites and duplexes are also available. Both are good options for guests who need more space to work or who may be traveling with children or friends. All rooms have wireless Internet access (fees may apply) and air conditioning. All rooms are non-smoking.

Property features

The Terrace Café -- with indoor and outdoor seating -- is Hotel Niles' best feature. The restaurant serves breakfast from 8 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. every morning and, the rest of the day, a café menu.

The hotel is a short walk from attractions including the Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Habgia Sophia, and Topkapi Palace. There are several parks and green spaces close to the hotel.

Excellent location, quiet but close to a lot of history.

The greeting from the hotel reception was the start of a wonderful experience of how things should be and a taste of what was to come from the rest of the hotel staff. A young French lady and her colleague are mines of information and are in attendance at breakfast on the rooftop restaurant making sure that things are to your liking. They also offer advice as to how to get to the wonderful things to see in Istanbul. The rooms are not large but the cleanliness is outstanding. The safe in each room is large enough to accommodate a laptop plus your passports, cameras, etcetera. A ticket on the tram system is a worthwhile investment and to use it you will need a card. The hotel staff will explain how to obtain a card and how to 'top it up'. The fare to ride the tram system is 4 Lira per person per ride regardless of how far you travel on that same tram.

Great location, nice staff, good value

1. Great location: two blocks from tram #1 stop, walking distance to Grand Bazaar and Blue Mosque 2. Exceptionally nice and polite staff, perfect English. Tea and sweet treats during check-in. 3. The best breakfast we ever had in a similar hotels + Bosporus view from the roof top The only one negative: one day we went for breakfast, left a sign "do not disturb" , but the housekeeping staff entered the room and cleaned it

Turkish Delight!

Staff super helpful in this perfectly located hotel for seeing all of the major sights. For a real Turkish experience stay at this hotel in preference to an international chain. Spectacular views from the rooftop terrace where you can enjoy a lovely Turkish breakfast which includes many homemade Turkish dishes which vary each day. Go for an upgraded room with a Turkish bath, it is really worth the extra few lira! We are already planning a return trip.

Beware of the shoe shine scam ... Checkout the many reports on the internet. It nearly happened to us and many others and could end up costing you a fortune.

Great budget hotel near Grand Bazaar

Hotel Niles is a very friendly small hotel close to the Grand Bazaar and a tram stop providing easy links to all the main sites. We arranged an airport pick up through the hotel by e-mail, and this provided a very easy link – well worth avoiding the hassle! The hotel has a small foyer lounge, but this is more than made up by the excellent roof top restaurant and terrace open to residents at all times. The breakfast buffet is extensive and first class, and is available until 11am. The rooms are adequate and very clean, the mini bar is well stocked and there is complimentary tea and coffee. All the staff are friendly and efficient, and make their guests very welcome. We recommend visitors obtain an Istanbulkart for travel on public transport – each journey costs only 2TL using the card and it can be easily topped up. Hotel Niles can provide the card for a small deposit, and they can also sell you a Museum Pass if you plan to visit all the main sites and this saves a lot of queuing time. It’s two tram stops to Aya Sofya and the Blue Mosque but it only takes about 10-15 minutes if you choose to walk. An excellent budget hotel which we would recommend to anyone.

Simple but simply perfect!

Perfect location not only for all the Sultanahmet must sees but also for the Grand Bazar and Spice Market. 5 minutes walk from the Tram station to reach Beyoglu in no time.The Hotel itself is simple but very comfortable with smal but very clean rooms. the staff is very friendly and helpful and the Terasse for breakfast and an good-night drink just fantastic. We can only recommend the Niles Hotel.
