Reception staff open and helpfull, room was clean and comfortable (but see below), breakfasts were enjoyable.
Furniture in room was a bit dowdy but at least it was wooden and not plastic!
The view of the blue mosque and Bosphore: amazing! Very nice staff.
the room on the street is a bit of noisy.
ellegant, proffessional, clean
We stayed with my husband for 2 nights. We 1st booked delux room but on arrival were upgraded to blue mosque corner room, which was really nice. The breakfast was on the same floor and could be taken on a small veranda on the roof. The view is gorgeous! Bosphorus and Blue Mosque - very near. That was very romantic. :) The staff is great and helpful. And I know what I am talking about - as I travel rather often to different European countries. The hospitality here is the best! And - good wi fi Internet - this is really important for us. And- the place is quiet, the calling for the prayers did not disturb at all. They add local coloring to your stay.
Everything was nice. Though I would like my room to be darker at night - the thick curtains to cover all windows would be helpful. Also tea/coffee set would be nice in room.
Being picked up at the airport by the hotel even thnoufh we arrived very late.Large comfortable room and discreet service.Excellent location with a roof terrace overlooking the two great mosques.Eficient , polite , friendly service
Hotel Uyan is a very well run ,small and intimate hotel with friendly and helpful staff who are proud of their place of work . It's in an ideal location and walkable distance to the main attractions of Istanbul.
The Uyan hotel is perfectly located near all of the main sites of the Old City but is on a quiet street tucked away from nearby streets filled with hotels and restaurants and from the flocks of sightseers. The staff is helpful and very friendly and the hotel is homey and comfortable. We checked out other hotels while we were there but didn't find a single place that we preferred or thought provided better value for the money. We would definitely stay there again.
There rooftop ac unit is a bit too much of a presence and could do with a barrier wall to blunt the fan noise and remove it from view when taking in the wonderful views of the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia from the roof terrace.
Hotel Uyan is conveniently located near the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sofia in Sultanahmet area. Its wonderful just being able to walk 2 minutes and be into everything including the tram! Try to get room 402 which is a corner room with a lovely balcony!
they turned the a/c off at winter, so the room was not as cold unless we opened the window (this was ok, except for the street noise at times)
Please write at least 15 words Great location, nice service, room and breakfast. It was recommended to us and will do the same to others.
The view from the terrace...would have been nice if there had been a retractable awning so we could have sat up there in the rain and it did rain quite a bit.
For me it was bit pricey...I would have liked to have stayed longer but I could only afford 3 nights.
The marvellous location, so close to some of the world's great tourism draw-cards. The staff were also invariably exceptionally helpful and mostly charming.
The room, which was tiny, could have done with a shelf or two and couple of hooks for hanging garments etc.
Even though the location is in the heart of Sultanahmet area and a 5 minute walk from major tourist attractions (Blue Mosque, Topkapi, Aya Sofia, lots and lots of restaurants, shops, ...), the hotel is amazingly quite! The price is excellent given the location, the very good breakfast that was included for our booking, the free pickup from the airport, and the free WiFi (which was fast!). Staff are courteous and very helpful. We really enjoyed our stay!
Excellent stay! The hotel is conveniently located in the historic center of Istanbul just blocksfrom the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. Other sites were equally accessible and there were plenty of restaurants and shops right outside the hotel. Rooms were clean and the staff was helpful. Views from the roof top were stunning. Would certainly stay here again!
Location amazing down a small street near Blue Mosque and Haifa Sophia. (Heard calls to prayer regularly). Very convenient especially when touring the tourist area of Istanbul. Small and personal. All staff are terrific. Stayed in a twin bedded room. Sheets were crisp and fresh. Free internet. Basic breakfast included. Even enjoyed the chatty birds outside my window every morning.
Welcoming, open late for check in (our flight into Istanbul was delayed), easy to book online. I liked the breakfast and lovely roof terrace views. The staff were courteous and helpful. All in all very pleasant and a great spot from which to explore Istanbul.
The need to repeatedly log in to the wi-fi web page in order to surf the net was a bit annoying. Perhaps a non-web page login would be easier. But having Internet at all was good ( and no extra charge) so the log in is only a minor thing and the stay was great.
