I would like to comment that the employees were very friendly and helpful. However, the room was very small and on the top of this the bathroom was always wet; the drainage system in the bathroom was designed incorrectly and water after having shower stayed in the bathroom’s floor for hours. The neighbors with the children were very noisy day and night. The location of the hotel is excellent. They provided free internet in the lobby.

Be careful with the receptionist! They want to buy all kinds of trips more expensive that you can find out of the hotel. In general, we like the hotel and surroundings! If you are lucky, you can see from your room Hagia Sophia and Topkapi!

The hotel has excellent location. The rooms are not very clean, especially the bathroom which is very small. The breakfast is frugal -some cheap salami, cheese, eggs, jam and tomatoes.

Good central location for Istanbul city break. Staff were unfailingly friendly and professional. Room was very basic but clean and cheap. The North Shield pub/bar nearby is a good location for a few drinks and less than 5 minutes walk away down the hill are a multitude of good places for food.

i travelled to istanbul with my friends,and as we arived at the aquarium hotel the staff was very friendly,even it was so late in the night. the first impression of the hotel was desaponting-every thing was shabbier and poor as we saw in the internet. our room was so small and actually it was a room for maximum 2 people and not for 3.the cleaning service was ok but every thing fell apart as soon as you touch it.the carpet was so dirty that it was disgusting tu go on bare feet. the breakfast was described in the internet as "buffet" but it was more as not enough and really poor.we had to wait and to ask for some tomatos and bred and the woman,who was responsable for the breakfast was not really happy to work. after the second day the receptionist said that we have to pay immediately.if not they will charge the money from our creditcard accounts. and one last recmandation:if you travel as single woman,dont go for a drink on the terrace if somebody from the personal kindly invited you-he will charge the wine shortly before you leave!and when we complained about that they insulted us in turkish. this was our experience and we learn that you have to treat the personal as personal,and never as friends.in the opposite case you have to pay for it! kindly: A*A*A*

The hotel is very close to many sights of the town. The personnel was very friendly. Still the rooms are very small, noisy (not from the road that is quite, but from neighbours) and the most annoying of all, the rooms are wet. Breakfast is average. The room price is low and justifies many of the above. I believe that you can find in the same area, better hotels in a similar price, but I am not sure how you can do that using internet.

It's a really good hotell, the location is the best, really like 5 min walk to everything, Aya Sofya, Topkapi palace the Blue mosque etc. The staff is really friendly and that made the stay even more enjoyable. The only thing that I can say anything about is just the shower/wc, for one who is used to having the shower seperate this is a hard thing to get used to, but give it a couple of days and you will get the hang of that too. But really I recommend the Aquarium from the bottom of my heart!! Thanks to the staff specially Mustafa for everthing and for making our stay so wonderful!
