“good service, clean rooms, good location and view”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

stayed in hali in april 2012. i had initiially reserved for 4 nights but ended up changing it to 3 and then to 2 due to change of my plans in Cappadocia (visited capadocia first). the hotel staff was very helpful inc hanging the dates through email. i had asked for a higher floors and a view of blue mosque and i got exactly that. loved the room and the unbelievale view.
im a big breakfast person and i absolutely loved the breakfast terrace and the choice of food, epecially the yougurt and strawberry mixed they serve. the buffet was open as early as 6:45 whic h gave me great flexibility and there was nice relaxing turkish music from the radio.
the loctaion is in the middle of it all. i would go there again.

After reading the so so reviews about the hotel I was a little hesitant about my stay .Gladly, I had a pretty positive experience. The hotel was centrally located, not more than 10 min walk from any of Sultanahmet major attractions. The front desk staff was accommodating and friendly not pushy at all. The best feature of the hotels is the breakfast terrace, the view is wonderful just watch out of the sea gulls!

Room Tip: We had a basic double which was VERY basic, but served our purposes.It was nothing special.

I spent just 2 night in Instanbul , at the Hali Hotel. Great location, just in the centre, wonderful view to the See(from the room on the 4th floor) and most of all - very friendly people at the reception desk!! They assisted me for any question and helped me a lot. Breakfast is not bad, taking place on a splendid terrace , looking over the city and to a great panorama over the see. The rooms are nice, but not luxury.More important - they are clean and pleasant!!! It might be sometimes noisy, by some curcomstances, but not from the street or the car traffic. The hotel is calm and secure. I felt well there and would return back next time!

a warm advise to all readers! avoid this hotel at all costs. its ONLY advantage is its central location and fine view from the (noisy) street facing rooms and roof top terrace. for the rest we found it very run down (electrical plugs falling down from the walls, wall paint peeling out, holes in bedsheets and so on...). behaviour of the receptionists -after you happen to refuse their insistent proposal of (expensive) guided tours- is between cold and unfriendly to even hostile. internet connection in the lobby is very slow and often pcs are kept switched off to spare electricity. waiters in the breakfast room appear absolutely unexperienced and speak almost no english at all, furtehromore we had to wait a very long time every single day to have coffee, they just didn't bother to pass through tables with coffee pots unless you shouted at them! as final deception i can tell you they even tried to ask full PRE-payment of the room on arrival: just too bad! this was our worst hotel experience in istanbul. never again!

I've stayed in Hali many times, last time at the end of last year and beginning of the new one. I choose this hotel for many reasons - it's conveniently located in the very heart of Sultanahmet, the historic part of Istanbul, in a side lane, which makes it a very quiet and sort of secluded. It's within walking distance to most tourist attractions, resaurants, shops, bazaars.

The rooms, which are cleaned every day, are comfortable, with very clean bedlinen. Wifi and access to English language TV channels allow me to keep in touch with the life outside Istanbul.

The views from the room windows are stunning - Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and the Topkapi Palace almost right at your feet, and if you go to the roof restaurant terrace, you can add the Marmara sea and the Golden Horn Bay with the famous bridge over it. It's a unique pleasure to sit in the roof restaurant watching the seaguls landing on the terrace and the sun going up between the minarets of the Blue Mosque. The breakfast they serve in the restaurant, including among numerous other things salted cottage cheese, olives, rose jam and Turkish tea is absolutely delicious!

I also liked the service in the hotel: in the restaurant, at the reception and the cleaning service - they were helpful. The receptionists were helpful when approached in person or by email and by phone. It was not a problem for them, e.g. to look after my luggage for a few hours until my take off in the afternoon, which enabled me to spend a few more hours exploring the city.

I strongly recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to stay in a friendly place, with great location, comfy rooms, helpful staff and good breakfast :-)

I look forward to staying in Hali again! Thank you for your hospitality! :-)
