horrible apartments

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 20, 2012

Me and my 3 children stayed in the apartment belonging to this hotel in May 2012. The apt is actually a few blocks from the hotel, facing it is a derelect building it does not have signs or indication that it is part of the hotel. When we arrived the apartment was filthy, ( food stains on the table and dirty bathroom and beds)we were shown the other apartment on the first floor and it had muddy foot prints in the shower and boxes in the hall , it felt as though we were trespassing in someones home, so we choose the lesser of 2 evils.The bath is not a tub/ shower, but a mouldy, ant infested shower.We didn't use the shower while there( we used the turkish bath) No phone, LCD TV, desk , safe or "designer toiletries", as were advertised. There were long blond hairs in the sheets (we are not blond) and a footprint on a pillowcase. It has a leaking skylight over the entrance to the apartment that made the narrow spiral staircase slippery.the hotel). Maybe the hotel is better. We arrived around midnight , and since there was no phone , we had to return to the hotel ( 3 times ,walking 15 min each time) to ask for clean pillowcases and towels at 1:15 am , we were bought 1 damp pillowcase. I complained to the owner , who took no responsibility and was extremely rude .See Istanbul Forum: angels home hotel - suspicious. By the way I paid $767 for 3 nights in a " boutique hotel" in the off season. I got 3 nights in someones 30yr old dirty apt. We are not fussy travellers, we where in Greece & Turkey 3 weeks, and stayed in 8 hostels $15/night, all were excellent. We've been to Egypt, Southeast Asia, all of Europe, etc., so I know standards are different. But you get what you pay for and I paid a lot for a place that wasn't as nice as or as clean as a hostel. I have posted pictures of the apartment and the building.

Directions: close to tourist attractions but on a street with vacant lots and empty buildings with 100s of cats , street smells of cat pee.

Perfect location

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

This hotel is in a perfect location, just 5-10 minutes walk to the main sights in Sultanahmet - Topkapi Palace, Aya Sofya and the Blue Mosque.

It has great views across the Marmara Sea and the Blue Mosque from the roof terrace. Staff are really friendly, rooms were small but spotless and the resident cats/kittens were adorable.

Breakfast is served in a separate building but is only 1 minute around the corner. But if you request it at reception you can have your breakfast served on the terrace. They'll serve a selection plate of cold food - egg, cheeses, bread, cold meat and much more!

This place is just perfect for a budget stay in Istanbul.

Unique Quality: Views!

Angel's Delight

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 20, 2006

We had four nights in the 'Angel's Suite' during Ramazan. The suite itself was spotlessly clean, comfortable and very spacious with a private balcony, amazing multi-head shower, sauna, bathrobes and slippers. The rooftop terrace has excellent views of both the blue mosque and the sea of marmara with binoculars provided, and a covered area in the centre for chilly evenings. Unfortunatley the breakfast area of the terrace was closed for the season and we had to walk (2 minutes) to the garden in Angel's Home Two.
The staff were very helpful, and offered us an itinery for our days.
The location was fabulous and the area (Sultanahmet) is the most convenient for all the sites which are in easy walking distance. (unlike other reviewers we found no hassle from hawkers or peddlars and the cafes and bars were relaxed with excellent food)
The nightlife during Ramazan was positively buzzing with food and trinket stalls lining the square and great marquees set for ifter. It was an experience we will never forget, even though we were non-muslim tourists we were made to feel so welcome on their holy festival.
All in all we would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

Unique Quality: Great terrace views.

Great place in the heart of Sultanahmet

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 30, 2006

It is very prettily and uniquely decorated and run by a couple of very nice, helpful brothers; the staff is great, too. The breakfast buffet was one of the best we had in Turkey. Unfortunately, we did not get to enjoy the terrace enough, as they close for dinner on Mondays and we had an early departure the next morning and missed breakfast. But we were within a couple of blocks of that wonderful area where you have the Blue Mosque on one side and the Aya Sophia on the other; just sitting there in the evening during the call to prayer is magical And the Sea of Marmara is also within easy walking distance, as is the Arasta Bazaar. The rooms are average size. The air conditioning is nice and cool. Surprisingly, we were not hassled much by street vendors while staying there, but I think we'd mastered the art of the uninterested look by then. Room costs vary, depending on the facilities.

Unique Quality: Location: we had already stayed in Istanbul twice, and we wanted to spend the last two nights in Turkey in the heart of the old town. This filled that bill.

Very friendly hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 15, 2006

This is a very, very friendly hotel with great staff. The rooms are decorated tastefully and very clean. A bit small, but for a few days it's not a problem at all. The bathroom was clean, and towels replaced daily. The staff speak english more or less well, and were more than happy to make reservations at restaraunts and phone taxis when needed. They really went above what I'd expect for the price of the hotel, which is very reasonable.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this hotel, but if I return to Istanbul I will stay in Beoglu or Taksim, which is much busier, has more to see, and is safer. This area (Sultanahmet) is filled with tourist rip-off stores and annoying people hawking this or that. Sultanahmet is good to visit for a day to see the mosques and bazaars, but not necessarily the best place to stay in the city. Again, that has nothing to do with the Hotel, just the city layout and surroundings.

Unique Quality: The rooms all seem to have hearts and cherubs and whatnot (a la Angel theme). Very cute and romantic. The breakfast was tasty and included egg and sausage as well as the usual cold assortment with yogurt, etc. Definitely filling and prepared well. I don't know about the lunch or dinner, as I sought out other options.

Directions: Near city walls just under Blue Mosque and Arasta Bazaar. Taxi drivers have no clue where it is. Get dropped off at the Arasta Bazaar and hike downhill for 2 minutes to the Best Western, and turn right. It's about 100m down that way.
