Nowy Efendi Hotel "Special Class"
Ranked #51 of 1,163 Hotels in Istanbul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 December 2016

The hotel is ideally located in the historical center of Istanbul. One can visit the main sites on foot otherwise the hotel is less than 5 minutes from a tram station. The hotel has a magnificent view of the blue mosque and St. Sophia. The hotel staff is very attentive and very helpful.

Main advantage is the best location + plus newly built hotel = very good.
Very quiet place around and you are in the centre of sultanahmet, dont need spend a lot of time to seek interesting places or restaurants

The route that our cab driver took made us a little apprehensive about the hotel as the road seemed very steep. However our fears melted away when we got out for our first walk. It's a 3-4 minute walk from the tram and 5 min walk to major tourist sites like the blue mosque and Hagia sophia! The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Burcu ( i hope I'm spelling it right) used to answer every question of ours and helped us with everything from explaining locations to giving us travel options. We used to come back at night and talk about everything with our brother Ercument who was very friendly and helpful too!
The breakfast had a limited variety but the things that were there were very delicious and of high quality! One can have the breakfast while watching the sun rise behind the magnificent hagia sophia! One thing that can be improved is the ventilation in the rooms otherwise it was a great and comfortable experience to stay in this hotel! Wish to return very soon!

Very good hotel; central location; next to public transportation; room a little small; noise cancellation is not their thing. Cant rate breakfast as i had to leave early during my entire stay and so couldn't use this service.
