Area description
The Byzantium Hotel is located on Akbiyik Street within walking distance of such historical and major city sights as St. Sophia (Aya Sophia/Hagia Sophia), The Blue (Sultanhamet) Mosque, The Cistern Basilica (Yerebatan Cistern), Topkapi Palace, The Grand Bazaar (Kapalicarsi) and Misir Carsisi. Once described as the Way of Kings, Akbiyik Street is an ancient road used by empirical leaders as a route into the Old City and its palaces, divides the historical peninsula down the middle and leads guests directly from the hotel into the heart of Sultanahmet. Istanbul is the only city in the world that lies between two continents. The old town provides a unique setting, as it is on the European side, with only a few hundred metres to the coast overlooking Asia Minor.

For a tourist class hotel this one fits the bill perfectly for a city break in Istanbul. Good value, friendly staff, good breakfast with lots of choice. Hotel, rooms and bathrooms very clean and maids in room daily leave it spotless. A short walk to the main tourist sites of the Sultanahmet area, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cisterni and mnay other museums. Close to Sultanahmet tram stop, which is great for getting about the city. Lots of choice of restaurants around hotel, but try to get a bit further out to sample the ones the Turks frequent. We went to a great one in Itfaiye cad. in the Fatih area near the old aquaduct called Sur Okacbasi. Delicious food. Try the Aryan yougurt drink and leave room for the delightful dessert consisting of ice cream baked in a semolina crust. Great value.

Sur Ocakbasi Address: Zeyrek Mh., 34083 Fatih/İstanbul, (It's on Itfaiye cad, from Aksaray tram stop go up Ataturk Blv go to the left of the park and it's not far from the old aquaduct wall. You'll get good value, authentic food unlike the restaurants in the Sultanahmet, which are all geared towards the tourists, including the prices. You won't get any alcohol here though (again unlike the tourist ones).

Hôtel Byzantium - Istanbul

Bonjour, Je tiens à vous signaler que l'hôtel a fourni un très mauvais service. Nous sommes arrivées là-bas et aucune chambre n'était réservée pour le premier soir. L'hôtel était déjà complet et ils nous ont mis dans un autre hôtel de moindre qualité pour la première nuit. Pour le deuxième jour nous avons dû refaire tout l'enregistrement alors que c'était déjà fait. Je ne recommanderai pas cet hôtel. Avec mes meilleures salutations Mylène PEPPI

KATASTROF

Bilderna på hemsidan är fantastiska, verkligheten är en annan. Jag saknar ord, jag har rest många gånger och aldrig upplevt nåt liknande. Personalen hade ingen koll, kassaskåpen funkade inte, varken i mitt rum eller polarens rum. Första kvällen fick jag dela rum med polaren, de hade gjort lite fel i bokningen. Långt ifrån 4 stjärnor, i min mening 2 stjärnor.
