    The location was perfect. The rooms were clean and modern. The whole hotel was very comfortable and inviting. The owner and stuff were superb. They could answer any ? needed, and help you with directions, shopping advice, whatever you could possibly need. The food and everything were excellent. Did I mention that the owner/manager Metin was Frickin Awesome!

    We had wonderful experience with Minel Hotel in July 2011. We stayed for one week and the hotel and staff could not have been better. It has the perfect location. It is a 1 minute walk from Gulhane Park (Topkapi Palace), 3 minute walk to Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque and an easy walk to the Spice Market, Grand Bizarre, the train station (Orient Express) and Galata Bridge. Many hotels in Sultanahmet are noisy due to street traffic (a common complaint in Istanbul), but Minel Hotel is on a very quiet side street that cars cannot drive down due to steps on the street. The rooms are comfortable and clean with tv, a/c and a great shower. Although the hotel was only opened in May '11, it is clear that the hotel is regularly maintained - we even saw someone painting the few scuffs that the walls acquired between May and July. The hotel has an exceptionally friendly and helpful staff and they make each of their guests feel important with the individual attention given. Each morning there is a great Turkish breakfast to help you kick start the day while you read Istanbul guide books from the bookcase. I would definitely stay here again and I would strongly urge any friend or family member visiting Istanbul to stay at Minel Hotel.

    Small and personal designhotel, feels like home thanks to owners, staff and nice outside patio. Great location close to tram, boats and old city.

    Not to much space in the room, even though it had character.

    The location is great, very close to Gulhane Tramway station. Walking distance to Grand Bazaar and Blue Mosque. The owner is very helpful. His brother is not good at communication in English though.

    The room is a little bit too small.

    Very nice budget design hotel. Good value for money. Pleasant staff. Rooms at the front are quiet (special especially given the location).

    Rooms at the back of the hotel are a bit noisy (traffic of tramroad).

    My 84 year old father and İ stayed at Minel hotel this summer and found it to be absolutely as described we were not at all disapointed The staff are lovely and dıd all they could to make our tıme special. The Hotel is right in the centre yet ın a quiet side road whıch is what we wanted. It is right opposite the Tocapi Palace too. Everywhere is walkable dıstance the ınterior design ıs most delıghtful.We would stay again. I would highly recommend it.

    Nothıng really but be careful if you can't manage stairs as there is no lift and the nice room we had was on the second floor.

    The location is perfect: central and very quite, the only noize is from muezzin calls from the nearws mosques but how can you hide from it in Istanbul? :) The staff is young (exept a Georgian lady preparing brekgfast and clearing rooms) and extreamly helpfull, always offered us a cup of tea and when my friend needed a glass of water to take her pills the whole bottle was offered to her, surprisengly, free of charge, as well as tea. Room was comfortable and decorated with a good taste. It was pleasant to find slippers, air condition, a hair drier, a room heating tuning from the room independantly, a full set of bath facilities with hotel logo, and a stable wifi internet connection. Breakfast is plane but tasty and substantial.

    Rooms are rather tiny and a soundprofness b/w them are not exellent. A very amazing situation with hot brekfast dishes: when you are along you get one portion of scrambled eggs. If there are 2 persons travelling together - there are only half a portion per person :) On March 8 brekfast there were quite a lot of guest at the hotel and a Gergian lady was on vacation so we get 1 portion of scrambled eggs devided for 4 persons (we two + another couple). Really very amazing %) But none of the above bothered us much, really.
