me and my boyfriend spent 3 nights in this hotel and we had no problems. our room is clean, breakfast are very basic here but not bad. its also close to major attractions in Istanbul, it was cold when we went there so its really nice to walk around and there's a lot of good restuarants to dine or drink nearby. i would recommend this for
those who wants to enjoy the city more than their rooms.

When we entered our room one part of heavy curtain was was not fully connected to curtain rail and the other half was in the drawer! Told person at reception could they fix it,also hair dryer not working, and the lift have a mind of itsown, nothing was done,staff were not friendly, we were not happy with service. What is good about this Hotel is the location.

Good location close to the main sites and tram station.
OK staff with 2 very nice people.
Adequate breakfast.
Rooms are small and not well maintainned. The back room windows have a view of a rather unkempt courtyard.

Additional problems we had - the only lift broke down. There was noisy building work nearby which kept going late into the night. The windows did not close fully either.

Additional plus points: Sultanahmet area is very hilly however there is only a minor incline on the main route to the attractions from the hotel. There is a very nice reasonably priced take away/restaurant called ortak(something) just to the left as you come out of the hotel. There is a small supermarket near by. Small mosque nearby.

For the correct price I would stay here again (I am one those people who mainly want a clean from the hotel), but the place felt slightly overpriced at the time I went.

I learned about Hotel Kupeli in New York Times' traveler review and decided to make a reservation. I did an initial inquiry by e-mail and didn't get a response; a second e-mail did get a response and things went smoothly after that.

The hotel was built in 2007 so everything is refreshingly new and clean. Our room was bright and cozy. However, I can't imagine it's going to stay that way for long -- things clearly aren't maintained very well. Two doorknobs in our room kept detaching, the main drain in our bathroom was covered in mildew, and light-bulbs were burnt out and not replaced. The computer in the lobby was free for guest use, but the Internet connection was constantly going down.

Also, the main front desk clerk was impatient and irritable all the time... though I can't really blame him, considering he was at the desk about 20 hours/day.

Overall we enjoyed our experience at Kupeli and don't regret our stay. Breakfast on the terrace was especially lovely.

we also felt duped by seth sherwood's "save or splurge: istanbul" article in the NY times (august 2009). kupeli was just another blah hotel with no character. granted, the rooms were clean, and the flat screen TV was kind of cool, but when in istanbul, i had no plans to spend my time in the hotel room, watching TV. service was OK. there was nobody in the breakfast area to help with the food, and when the internet wasn't working, the front desk staff was of no use.

we paid 65 euro/night for three nights, and we ultimately moved to a different hotel (the side) which charged less (50 euro/night) and was closer to the sites in sultanahmet such as the blue mosque.
