Good, but better in the neighbourhood
Like many similar hotels in Sultanahmet, the Sphendon is an old house (with roof top terrace) that has been remade into a hotel. The rooms are clean, with AC and high speed Wifi.
The rooms are very small, and the spiral stairs to get to the other floors are very narrow. The location though good, can be hard to find for taxis, so pay attention to the best routes. Walking to and from the hotel, however, is easy. Still, for the price, the Poem Hotel and the Artefes are better located with larger rooms. Also, beware of their scheme about car service to and from the airport, it's 34 euros, which is about 100 lira. You can get a shuttle for no more than 15 lira or a taxi for 50 lira. No sense in using their car with an exorbitant price, especially on your way back to the airport.
The staff were very kind and helpful and the hotel (though it would be more appropriate to call it a bed and breakfast) was very nicely and tastefully decorated..
The rooms are small by European standards and very small by North American standards. It''s on a busy and therefore noisy street, so sleep was often interupted.
Very friendly staff. Clean rooms and bathrooms.
Shower compartments were small and had weak water pressure.
Natural materials, good place,
small room, small tualet
Very friendly staff. Room is decirated very nice. When you live in this hotel you can really feel that you live at home.
Breakfast could be more various but Istanbul isn't a city where you can feel hungry.
staff very welcoming and helpful. good buffet breakfast. room service for teas/coffees and minibar very reasonable prices. excellent location for main sites. Free wi fi connection.
room a bit small but well equipped
A comfortable bed, a quiet and pleasantly decorated room, and an atmospheric back garden. The location is excellent for doing all the major sights of the old town.
New, very nice and neat hotel, perfect value for money - ok sized and air conditioned room, clean bathroom, proper breakfast, friendly service. Location is perfect, 5 minute stroll to main attactions such as Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia and a little further to first tram stop. Transport from and to airport is best done by using cheap transfer bus, servicing the hotel area this hotel is in.
Bathroom was a little small, but still very neat and everything was easy to use. Matrasses were hard. Still very much recommended.
the noıse from the street but ıt comes wıth the locatıon
