Perfect location if you are staying only few days. The main sights are on walking distance. Excellent and helpful service in reception. The restaurant is ok and the food was very good, but you didn't always get what you ordered. The breakfast is very Turkish. Our room was small, clean and silent, Free WiFi to top it all!

From the time we arrived the staff have been welcoming and so willing to assist with anything at all. It is hard to believe there would be better service anywhere. Nil was professional and so well prepared. What a fantastic place.

This hotel gave me the best experience I could have. From the start, the staff (Davut, Hasan, Rabia, Israfel and Nil) were the best. They also helped me arrange a Mercedes taxi to the airport with very nominal charges. The breakfast was complimentary and very good. The Haram restaurant had great food and wonderful service. I totally recommend this hotel...

Balin Hotel is an excellent hotel if you want to visit the main monuments in the old city of Istambul. It has also a good restaurant where you can eat traditional Turkish food. Clean rooms and very helpful staff.

Outstanding service and hearty welcome by professional and hospitable staff! Nice range of Turkish appetizers (esp. cheese!) for breakfast. Service quality totally corresponds the price and even exceeds it.

Recently stayed at the Balin for two nights on a busines trip. The hotel is a great value for the money and the staff was outstanding. From the greeting by Hasan (who came over to the parking garage to get our bags) the Bellman, to warm reception by Davut on the front desk, and the whole waitstaff in the resturant...
