Nice hotel in the centre of Istanbul
Location and attractive stay rates
Small single rooms
Some rooms are small, the decorations a little tired and it is next to a building site. The breakfasts are okay and the position is really convenient. If you’re here for a few days to see Istanbul, you shouldn’t be spending time in the hotel anyway, so the minor niggles are really unimportant. The reception staff was charming, friendly, spoke good English and went out of their way to help. Free wifi in the rooms is ok.

Short Transit Stay
Hotel is near the famous spice market and the water front and very near the tram station which is important for visitor like me. Receptionists are wonderful
Room is OK if you only want to sleep. My room has no window (rather the window cannot be opened). May be there is nothing to see.It is like living in a cave. Dont know about other room
Won't be able to judge the whole hotel but the room (without a window) is not fit for a hotel with a STAR. However, the restaurant (located on the 6th floor) is nice with a view of the Marmara Sea. The menu for breakfast could should change a little because guest will get bored of it after a two day stay. The location is excellent because it is near the spice market and the water front (100 m). The receptionist are wonderful and helpful. This makes my stay at the hotel worth while. The room I stayed in had no window (actually the window cannot be opened) and makes the stay in the room a big negative. But the room is clean and nice. Wish the hotel provides complementary drinking water and tea/coffee maker. These a basic facilities in many 3 star hotels.

Ipek Palas in Istanbul
Good location in old town. Clean newly renovated hotel. Nice breakfast view at top floor.
Construction site opposite hotel (on our left side), where noisy work was done until late night (will probably be there for many months still)
Ipehk palas is in Sircesi, close to the old Orient express railway station. Everything was really close by - tram stop, Galata bridge with Bosporus boats and all the main cultural attractions. Our room was quite big (a room with two separate beds) but as someone reported before double bed rooms were extremely small. Breakfast was OK, nothing special with it. The view from the restaurant was nice.

旧市街の中にあり、またシルケジ駅のそばにあるために旧市街へも新市街へもアジア側へも出やすい、便のいいホテル。そしてホテル自体も小ぎれいで、イスタンブールの中級ホテルとして悪くはない。しかし、economy singleの部屋は、イスタンブールのホテルとしてはかなり狭かった。また、衛星放送が入っていないのか、テレビのチャンネルが少なかった。
