CHECK AVAILABILITY
Constructed in 1955, Helios is one of the few places where, under the sunny eye of the Hellenic solar deity of the very same name, our customers, hailing from the four corners of the world, shall be granted State Of The Art Turkish hospitality.

Particularly spoilt by its geographic situation in regard to famous sites, Helios is situated within the Old historical quarter of the town Istanbul thus providing a direct access to touristic sites such as the Blue Mosque.
St. Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Hippodrome square, such places are located within a few meters walk from Helios, while being fairly accessible from the Istanbul International Airport (15km farther), the main Railway station (about a kilometre away) or the Urban Tram (only two street blocks away).

The Marmara sea shall make a splendid scenery for our guests, while the infamous Prince Islands (Adalar) or Istanbul's mythical Asian side may provide unforgettable holiday pictures for our hosts.

Adorned in a sophisticated mixture of Ottoman and Byzantine decorative styles, Helios will disorientate the customer in order to provide a truthfully Turkish stay.
All rooms are adaptable to our guests' needs, as they are all equipped with modern amenities hence making cultural, business or hasty visits all the more fanciable.

The rooms were not full comfortable (little issue with shower, sink in bathroom, ...). In brief, the quality was acceptable but expensive for this quality. Street noise for some rooms. Staff and welcome OK

Hotel Helios (AKA Harmony Hotel) is a good value hotel for the budget traveler. Rooms are small and there is noise from nearby trains and traffic, but hey - that's Istanbul. (Bring earplugs.) Friendly staff are very helpful, and nice touches provided - slippers in rooms, nice bedding and comfortable towels, fluffy towels, attractive room decor. Convenient location near many sites and restaurants.

the plus : the location very closed to Blue Moskey and Sultanahmet, the welcoming of the staff trying to do their best especially the manager the minus:hotel located on a very noisy street (the major one to reach the old center with many taxis and touristic buses going through all day long till late on the night) just closed to a railway, no sounproofing inside the hotel: a door between our room and the one of our neighbours as if our rooms were previously twins!), the rooms which are on the part of the more recent bulding and located on the street are very noisy and very small! the breakfast is in a really not acceptable relationship between price and qualtiy (no handmade coffee! only nescafe coffee, just one type of bread and no choice of fruits and cakes for example)very poor breakfast for a such price. even the terrace has a view on the railway so noisy too!

A nice little hotel with very friendly staff and a parrot, which can miaw like a cat. The location is excellent, dont forget to visit the "little Ayasofya" right behind the hotel, which has been a church just like the real big Ayasofya and which has become a mosque. The praying direction had to be corrected ... If you need a very quiet room, the rooms facing the street are not what you are looking for. But if you need a non expensive place with very nice staff right in between the old Istanbul, then Hotel Helios is the perfect place to stay.
