Ideal location in Old City”
Location, friendliness, cleanliness
Fabulous week spent at the hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Having vacated our room on the last day we were waiting for our bus to the airport when the manager presented my daughter with her credit card and some cash that she had left behind in the room. Wow! Very close to the tourist 'action'. Management team was very helpful with our friends, who updated their room twice throughout the week. Nothing too much trouble. Highly recommended!

Great location”
Great location
Towels & sheets were very tattered; both bathrooms had leaking showers & water closets;
The only thing this hotel has going for it is its great location. Housekeeping should be improved. The towels & sheets did not feel clean.

Great location and the room size is okay”
The hotel personnel were friendly.
Lobby is dreary, very old towels and the room was not cleaned properly.
We have to wait for our room for awhile when we got to the hotel. Iwas dissapointed when the room was not thoroughly cleaned and it was facing the main street so it was so noisy.It would be nice if the breakfast buffet would have a little variety rather than the same everyday. Otherwise the people who works there were friendly and let us have our own drinks by the cafe. Overall it was a pleasant 5 day stay. It is a great location.

Ok stay at Oldcity Viva Hotel”
Great price, great location ( in Sirkeci, walking distance or a short 2 tram stops from Sultanahmet, Grand Bazaar, walking to the Eminonu pier ). A lot of good restaurants around the hotel. The room was ok, not big, not small, both room and bathroom very clean. The staff was friendly. Breakfast included in the room price, which was ok, with a good selection of food.
A lot of working and renovation going on in the hotel, but nothing too loud. Internet ( wi-fi ) available only in the downstairs bar.
The Oldcity Viva Hotel is a reccommended choice for Istanbul, because of the affordable price ( approx. 45 euros ), and great location. Only issue I had was that the wi-fi was not available in the room, only in the bar at the ground level. But as the weather was excellent, I enjoyed sitting on the terrace, sipping some coffee and checking my e-mails & stuff.

review on old city viva hotel”
location is good . very near to attractions site. all within walking distance.
the room is very small . the staff speak very little English
Oldcity viva hotel is ideally located because it is near to top attraction site,all within walking distance.There are many eating places near the hotel too.Also it is near to tram station. If the staff can communicate well in English it is very easy to catch the tram and metro to and fro airport to hotel. It will save a lot than to catch a taxi.The room is small but it is clean.

Keskusta hotelli”
Huippu sijainti. Kaikki lähellä. Helppo liikkua hotellilta.
Pölyinen hotelli huoneen lattia. Vesi ei vetänyt lavuaarista.
Hotelli aivan keskustassa, josta helppo liikkua joka puolelle Istanbulia. Lautat lähtee kävelymatkan etäisyydeltä Aasian puolelle. Raitiovaunu menee aivan hotellin vierestä, jota käyttäen pääse muille yhteyksille esim. metro. Hotellin siisteys oli huono. Hotelli huoneen lattia pölyinen ja lavuaari ei vetänyt. Hotellissa tehtiin jotain remonttia, joka puolella oli rakennus jätettä sementtiä. Rakennusmiehiä liikkui hotellissa. Muuten ei valittamista hinta oli niin halpa.
