I stayed three nights at this nearby hotel the Blue Mosue.Nice hotel,the staff was fiendly,the breakfast had good,the parkig is little,the room open see Marmara Sea.The old town,Hagia Sophia,the boutiques,more people visit.
300 yards from the largest sites to visit in Sultanamet overlooking the Bosporous you will find an original old town building that is the Tria hotel.Welcomed by courteous staff and a glass of cay our room was comfortable with modern bathroom facilities and toiletries. The rooftop restaurant provides fabulous views as well as a good range of traditional dishes to eat as well as wines and beers. All at very good prices, so you will not be ripped off.Restaurants within 100yards are very similar and we ate or drank in several without being disappointed and having a few surprises.
When we had first visited Istanbul in 2006, we had stayed at a boutique hotel, called Poem Hotel. Poem was perhaps one of the first Ottoman houses in that neighbourhood that converted itself to a boutique hotel. To be honest, I wanted to stay again at Poem when we visited for three nights from June 25 to 28 this year. But Poem was not available for booking (I realised after coming to Istanbul that Poem has been shut for renovation for the last two years). So after a bit of research, I stumbled upon Tria. I got a sense of Deja vu while entering the back lane as I saw the bakery that I faintly remembered from my last visit. It tuned out later that the house in front of Tria which was under renovation used to be Poem Hotel. Tria is a nice and clean boutique hotel. The staff are extremely polite and helpful. We were in the middle of a long trip. They helped me find a laundry service and got our clothes cleaned and delivered within half a day. Since we were visiting during Eid, it was not known which sites were closed for the three day long holiday. They helped by searching on their computer and gave us the correct information. We were booked into their deluxe room. The room was nice and clean. The bathroom was clean and modern too. But it was a little too small for a family of three. We were put in a room on the second floor that faced towards the Marmara Sea. I would have liked a room on the 3rd of the 4th floors as they offer a glimpse of the sea. They offered to give us such a room for our last night. We did not change out of laziness. The breakfast spread is a little limited. But the stuff is very mediterranean and fresh. They bring batches of freshly baked bread from the nearby bakery. It would be nice if breakfast is served at the rooftop restaurant and not in the basement room where the sitting capacity is very less. The rooftop restaurant is amazing. It offers a clear view of the Marmara Sea and the Asian side of Istanbul. The islands can also be seen. In fact, among all the rooftop restaurants on this street, this one has the best view. They give 20% discount to the hotel residents. The food was excellent. The staff were wonderful. The wi-fi in room was good. The hotel does not offer airport transfer for pick up. They can arrange for a drop for 35 euros or can call a taxi that arrives in 5 minutes. They are honest about it. Taxi to Ataturk costs 60 Liras, which is less than 20 euros. I am told that the nearby Byzantium Hotel has bigger rooms. But if we go back to Istanbul - which I'm sure that we would do - we would stay at Tria and expect that they give us a room on the 3rd or the 4th floors.
The location of tria was great. The staff was friendly but the hotel on the whole was average.The room was small but clean so i didnt have much issue with that. The breakfast wasnt very lavish but tasted good. All in all with the price they charge id say it was a good bargain and id go and stay there again if i visited istanbul
Location are good, other than that there is nothing special about it. Their staff service is not so good. We ask about airport transfer but they reply we do not do this service. At least guide us there can we find this service or let us know where can we find it. View of the room was not nice. If you plan to stay for one night its find.
Tria Hotel has perfect location, helpful staff. I would like to thank Gurkan , Erkan, Mustafa. this boys are working in reception.And i would like to thank Mustafa , who works in restraunt.(restraunt has an very amazing sea view).Very friendly staff in a clean boutique hotel .I would strongly recommend the Tria to all visitors.Best wishes to all staff
Great location and friendly staff... 5 minutes walk away from Aya Sophia, Blue Mosque and Basillica Cistern, Topkapi Palace. The tram is just a 7 minute walk away. Benjamin (at the reception) furnished with all information and necessary maps for local attractions. Rooms on the first floor are above the breakfast area, so if possible, get rooms on higher floors. All in all, really good value and great hospitality..
If I come in Istanbul one more time I'll stay there. The Tria Hotel is very cosy, comfortable and the main plus - location in Sultanahmet! This is the best choice for people who explore city all day long and come back only for sleeping and shower.
There are so many quaint and charming restored old Ottoman houses in Sultanahmet, but I got the impression that the Tria hotel is one of the better established and respected ones. As with most older properties, the rooms tend to be are small, and there are some minor maintenance needs, Over this month, I stayed several times. The first room I had was a superior, but the room was chock full of old fashioned useless furniture that just cluttered the space. The small bathtub also leaked out the bottom and flooded the bathroom one night. The second room we had was a standard, and very small ; but several things mal-functioned in that room so we were moved to another which was a good size, and very quiet and comfortable. So each room has its own particulars. But the location is on a very quiet side street so traffic will not disturb your sleep. The hotel breakfast is hearty and good, and definitely have a meal at the rooftop terrace. Like other Sultanahmet terraces the view is great and you will get a 20% discount if you are a guest here. The staff is particularly polite and helpful and speak very good English which is helpful if you are not familiar with Istanbul. Wifi is good, and there is international tv, hair dryers and other amenities. For right now the Tria was shockingly good value, but sadly this is due to a lack of visitors to Istanbul due to recent terror and political incidents. But if you are willing to travel to Istanbul now, everything is fine, you will have a great time, and also enjoy some good savings.
The breakfast area was hot as the air conditioning was not working. When I asked the manager, he got very defensive asking with an attitude that "what do you want me to do?" As if I was having a crazy and out of the ordinary concern--he could make sure the air condition was fixed after the first day when the whole time we were seating during the breakfast. The WiFi didn't work in the breakfast area either. Hotel description promises view of the Bosphorus but the view of my room was wall of the next door building. They don't even provide complementary water in the room, and rooms don't block noise
