a really cosy small hotel with only a couple of rooms. Ours was quite small, so we almost had no place where to put our suitcases. But as we didn't spend to much time in the room (only for sleeping), it didn't matter too much. The breakfast was very fine, with typical turkish dishes. The staff was very lovely, cheerful, helpful and familiar. The location ist perfect, very near to Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. I would choose Minel Hotel again.

Lovely place with a very hospitable staff. There are only 9 rooms there, which makes you feel like staying at a friend's house, rather than in a hotel. Great location near Hagia Sophia. Awesome food for breakfast.

This a tiny-chic hotel on a great location. The staff is super friendly and will make you feel at home. It is fairly priced and the rooms are clean and cute. Did I mention the great location? Super quite area, you won't be waken up by the call to prayer at 5am.

We (my mother, my wife and I) booked 2 rooms at the Minel Hotel for 5 days. It was a lucky choice. The staff was very nice and helpfull. The hotel was very clean and in a quiet small lane only a ten minute walk away from Topkapi, Blue Mosque etc. on the other side the walls and doors in the hotel are thin and you can say not really soundproof. The breakfast from Maria(turkish style) with olives, cheese, thin backed pastry with cheese, spices and sausage, omlette, honey, yoghurt........etc. was excellent. The rooms were clean, nice and the space was adequate (not really spacious). Summing up I would choose the Minel Hotel any time again. Highly recommended.

Very nice hotel, the best relationship between price and quality in Istanbul. Furthermore, staff is very helpful and nice with a lot of tipps: thank you again for this nice stay. The breakfast is very good but may be one improvement: from 8:30 is may be too late, better would be from 07:30. I strongly recommend it for a week end.

The hotel staff was very helpful. Arranged our pickup at the airport for a reasonable fee and allowed us to store our bags after our noon checkout. The breakfast was fresh and good. The room was a little cramped (we had to keep our valises standing) but not a real problem for a short visit. I liked the free WiFi. The location was terrific, within walking distance of the main old Istanbul tourist sites and there is a metro stop within a block. Recommend highly.
