I have just been travelling with friends who stayed at another hotel in Istanbul. Askin looks good on paper but shower leaked, I was rorted at payment time. Worst though was at 10pm after return to room the phone would ring with offers of tea coffee or massage. It was very unnerving. Got booking through Turkish airlines will be telling...

The location of the hotel is good for the major sights such as the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. The shower door in 304 didn't close properly, and the shower didn't drain. Otherwise the room was acceptable, and the breakfast was also adequate.

At no time were we made to feel welcome. The reception member of staff appeared unaware how to read bookings.We waited 15 minutes before it was pointed out to him that code numbers were used not names.. The bathroom was in a poor state of repair with broken and chipped tiles and the vanity light did not work. The shower...

Askin...translates as "lover" I am told. Or perhaps it was just my accent...but when i got lost in Istanbul trying to find my way to this hotel, asking the locals "Hotel, please? Askin?" I was perplexed to receive 10 telephone numbers with requests to meet later in the bar, but no directions to the hotel! The eleventh person I asked...

If you are looking to stay for a short period and willing to share with friends then this hotel is good on a tight budget, I shared a room with 2 other male friends during the UK Christmas period for 3 nights which worked out at £15 each per night which we thought was very reasonable. We used to get...

This hotel is in Sultanahmet and very well situated. You follow the street up and get directly in front of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. It is practically impossible to get lost. The roof, where breakfast is served offers a magnificent view of the Golden Horn, the Bosphorus and the sea of Marmara. The rooms are comfortable and the...

Not a great experience. Location was great and we slept all right, but had to ask for almost everything (towels, soap, linens!), and breakfast was really horrid. For our 10-day tour we almost had a crisis with the tour operator since this was our first hotel of the stay in Turkey and we were very worried that the rest of...

A co-traveler and I recently had the unfortunate experience of staying at the Askin Hotel in Istanbul. Our adventure started when the innkeeper "mistakenly" thought we had booked for Saturday and Sunday night rather than the Friday and Saturday we reserved. We came to realize the innkeeper was quite prone to mistakes and although I'm generally an understanding person, the...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
