“"Just Perfect"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Taya Hatun Hotel for 7 nights 16 to 23 June, we chose the hotel thanks to tripadvisor reviewers for our 1st ever trip to Turkey and were not disappointed, this is a small Boutique Hotel which offers the personal touch without intrusion on privacy.
Even before we arrived the owner Mehmet had made us feel welcome with his enthusiastic to meet us response to my email requesting transport from the airport, and this continued during the stay.
We stayed in a deluxe double (301) and found it to be exactly that, spacious, very clean (thanks to Erson), king size bed, great jacuzzi bath and separate shower plentiful hot water, room safe, seating area, plasma TV with 814 channels but only BBC world news and CNN in English, free Wi Fi and free use of laptop in reception 24/7 manned.
The same hospitality applied to all his staff who were friendly and made us feel so at home there was great advice about the city from Serkan and Ozan on reception, Semiha provided us with our breakfast which was plentiful and more that adequate to start the day, cereals, cheeses and meats with excellent breads, Turkish dishes, cakes, fruits fresh and dried, unlimited tea coffee or orange juice.
The location could not be better near all the historic sights in the old city such like the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia Museum, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, Grand Bazar, Sultanahamet Square etc.
We are a mature couple and found Istanbul a safe city to walk in day and night, the tram stop is 3 min walk and a great way around the city, 2TL for a token per trip whatever the amount of stops.
Take the Funicular to Iskilal Street and walk to Taksim Sq they are a must see and are packed out day and night but good to get back to the relative peace of Sultanahamet.
We loved Istanbul and Taya Hatun and will be returning to both, I would recommend this Hotel and hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did, we found it perfect.

i stayed as solo for 4 nights at this hotel and find it exactly as great as all other reviews. just to add, if you are looking for budget vs (cozy, boutique, great location(old city 3 min to tram ) , good breakfast , excellent staff and very clean ) hotel, then It is the place. Owner and manager is almost 24/7 available and always more than happy to assist you in whatever you think you need. I would recommend this hotel to solo, couple, and small families.
Enjoy your stay !!!!!!!

I stayed at Tayahatun Hotel with my wife in our honeymoon for 4 nights during 13 to 17 th May,2012. I found it excellent hotel, near from all sights in the old city such like Sultanahmet Mosque, Ayasophia Museum, Topkapi Palace, Gulhane Park, Yerebetan, Hipdrom ... etc.
The staff was very kind and co-operative and super fine, room were very clean and all facilities were perfect (king size bed, Wi-fi ,Clean bathroom with hot water, slippers, hair drier... ). Also the breakfast was substantial and contains many lovely Turkish food.
In summary it was an excellent value for money accommodation, and we were extremely satisfied. I would recommend it to all my friends and family.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is small, but must be quite new. It has a stylish entrance, and is right next to little shops and a laundry. We arrived at 6am, the manager watched our bags for is, let us check in 2 hours early and upgraded our room!

Our room was big enough for 2, cleaned every morning, and has pretty amazing beds! Nice modern clean bathroom, with a shower with great water pressure. Hair dryer in the room.

The breakfast is, well, a Turkish breakfast, not what westerners are accustomed to, but I guess youtravel for new experiences! But they have flap jacks, bread, cereal and cheeses, enough to eat!

The managers were great, always smiling, always helpful, and they gave us free tea and cake when we were waiting to picked up for our cruise. Their English is sufficient and you can book a lot of activities through them.

The hotel is in a more peaceful part of the old city, an easy walk to the palace, blue mosque and bazaar, in fact we stumbled onto them. The tram stop is also about 250m away. They can organize airport shuttles too.

I would definitely recommend this hotel, and would definitely stay here again!
