Reasonably well located but not a 3 star hotel

We cancelled a reservation at a cheaper but similarly located hotel so that we could have a bit more space and relative luxury. If we knew then what we know now then we wouldn't have bothered. The hotel furnishings are extremely old and not very well kept. There were hints of mold on the shower and the door for the mini bar was falling off it's hinges. We checked in as a couple and had paid for a double room but they insisted on giving us a room with 2 single beds and were reluctant to change it. The bath water was also running brown when we arrived although they did fix this problem rather quickly. The breakfast selection was reasonably good but the dining area was small meaning that strangers often had to share tables and a lot of the table cloths, cutlery and plates weren't cleaned properly. The free Wi-Fi was available in almost all areas via multiple access points but the actual internet connection only worked very intermittently and couldn't really be relied upon. . The real problem with this hotel was a human one though. The staff were generally unpleasant and unfriendly, especially the female receptionist who worked through the day. We had pre-arranged flight transfers and the receptionist outright refused to call the company to confirm our collection time since we hadn't arranged the transfers through them. In a country which highly values politeness and courtesy to strangers, the attitude of the Mintur hotel staff was at odds with local culture and exposed a badly ran establishment which is only interested in exploiting foreign tourists for a quick profit. I don't usually review the hotels that I stay in, either positively or negatively, but I felt compelled to do so in this case. Staying at this hotel ruined what would have been an otherwise fantastic short holiday in Istanbul and we were honestly just glad to leave at the end of our trip. The Orient Mintur is not cheap and it is definitely not cheerful. It is a rusting shack of a hotel which may have been nice at one time in the past but is certainly no longer deserving of it's 3 star rating. Travellers will undoubtedly find much better value elsewhere. Avoid.

The local cafe's serve excellent Turkish food with an ethnic feel and a good evening meal for two can be had for as little as £4 each.
