Great location. Walking distance from key places of interest

Review of Avicenna Hotel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 May 2024
Very comfortable hotel. Rooms are nice and fairly large. Disappointed at not being given the Bosphorous facing rooms as promised, when we stayed there initially for 2 nights and were given the Bosphous facing rooms which were very nice, when we returned for one night.
However, the hotel does not have lift to the 1st/2nd floors, making it difficult for senior citizens and people who are physically challenged. They have winding stairs which are hard to negotiate. Very few rooms without tubs, making it difficult for people with disability.
Date of stay: May 2024
Room Tip: Ask for river facing rooms. They are better. Specify rooms without tub in case of any disability.

I don't normally leave reviews, but.....we have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Avicenna Hotel and I had to share. Whilst visiting we were celebrating my husband's 60th birthday. We had a wonderful stay. The staff were exceptional, so friendly, helpful and funny! Transfers were arranged ahead of our visit via the hotel - all instructions were clear, easy and hassle free. We booked Elegance Rooms, we had a sea view with balcony and our daughter had a balcony with street view. Rooms are traditional, very clean and tidy. Breakfast was a traditonal turkish buffet selection, and there was something for everyone. Restaurant was fabulous with amazing roof top views. Again, staff couldn't have been anymore helpful! There was entertainment on one evening which was great fun. Thank you to Elif for arranging a cake for my husbands birthday, all the staff made him feel very special on his big day presenting him with the cake and singing happy birthday! Location was excellent 2 minute walk to the Blue Mosque.

4 night stay in Room 104. Comfy bed, decent shower and a little tired but added to the charm. Safe broken and failed to fix it but just had to carry valuables around with passport. No big deal. Hanger shortage that was not rectified but gave up asking. Staff were all friendly enough but case of too many chiefs not enough Indians. Little balcony off the room. Breakfast very good and staff there excellent.
Rooftop restaurant very good with a wonderful view over the Bosphorus.
Location is superb in the Sultanahmet region within a very short walk of the Blue Mosque and Hippodrome, the Hagia Sophia €25 euro entrance fee(well worth it although I felt strongly that you shouldn’t have to pay to go into a place of worship)
Basically you go round the upper floors looking into this magnificent building.
A little further north is the Topkapi Palace which is wonderful.
The Basilica Cistern is also between the 2 mosques. A little hard to find the entrance as it’s around the corner to the exit but a brilliant underground water labyrinth.
The area near the Galatea bridge is great and try the fish sandwich served from boats on the quayside. Very nice watching the world go by.
Nearby is the spice market, new mosque and Süleymaniye mosque.
Over the bridge go visit the Galatea tower and walk the shopping street Istiklal avenue to Taksim Square.
We also did a day cruise and boat trip from the hotel. Goes over to Asia. You visit the Beylerbeyi palace which is a highlight and go up to Turkeys biggest mosque Çamlıca. Breakfast and lunch provided and coaches from hotels and to attractions not on the river. You finish at Pierre Loti for a great view and cable car ride down. Wonderful trip. Would definitely recommend the hotel

Staff were very friendly and gave good recommendations for local food and activities which was perfect for me as I’d never been to Istanbul before. The room was very clean and hotel was very central to a lot of restaurants and local amenities.

Friendly staff and service - hotel was always clean and welcoming! A relaxing stay for our 4-day trip. The room was comfortable and bright, with excellent views over the river. Would happily stay here again, if given the opportunity. Well done team!
