VERY NICE FAMILIAR HOTEL IN A WONDERFUL POSITION (A FEW MINUTES WALK FROM SANTA SOPHIA, THE BLUE MOSQUE, THE TOPKAPI PALACE ETC). THE ENTRANCE HALL IS VERY SMALL BUT ROOMS ARE CONFORTABLE AND VERY CLEAN. THE STAFF IS VERY FRIENDLY,HELPFUL NA DPREPARED AS IF IT WHERE A BIG HOTEL. THE ONLY DRAWBACKS: YOU HAVE TO USE SOME STAIRS TO TAKE THE LIFT AND HAVE BREAKFAST (NOT SUITABLE FOR HANDICAPPED PEOPLE) AND YOU HAVE TO GO UP EVERY TIME YOU GO BACK TO THE HOTEL (BUT THIS IS LIKE SO NEARLY EVERYWHERE IN ISTANBUL).

The location of the hotel was perfect, walking distance to all the sights in Sultanahmed and with a lot of nice restaurants nearby. Nice roof terrace where breakfast was served. The bed was too hard to our taste. The hotel lies in a quiet street, so trafic noise wasn't a problem. However, you could hear every noise from the corridors as well as the breakfast restaurant above. The free Wifi was a nice feature. However, in 5th floor the signal was somewhat weak. The hotel staff was very helpful and kind.

Noah's Ark is located in a prime location for seeing many of the "must" see sights of Istanbul. As well it is within easy walking distance of Public transit and many restaurants. The family rooms were clean and spacious and easily accommodated our family of four. The staff made us feel very at home and we would not hesitate to use this hotel again in future.

I would describe Noah's Ark as a little gem in the center of Istanbul. When visiting any destination, the distances are crucial. Noah's ark has the premium location to all major attractions. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly and very helpful. Our stay was rather short but we are making plans to come back, and definetely Noah's Ark will be our first choice to stay. As a family with two children we were granted a family room which was comfortable and spacious enough. The only recommendation for improvement I would make regarding the breakfast which provided limited variety for sandwiches and excluded vegetables. However, the fruits and juices were served as well as tea, coffee and milk.Besides,there is a lot to choose from the street vendors.We've had a very pleasant stay.

Noah's Ark's location couldn't be better. A 4 min. walk to the grounds of Blue Mosque and others impt.sights. First night's room was a broom closet size...and very noisy. We refused another night in this awful room and were upgraded to a larger quieter room. Free breakfast is a middle-eastern breakfast served in their very small rooftop outdoor/indoor dining area. Being from the USA it was not at all to our liking. Some stairs to climb!

Great location of the hotel, only 2-3 minute walk to Hippodrome, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the main tram station. So it was very central, but at the same time on a very quiet small street, away from the heavily congested main streets of the area.

What distinguishes the hotel from others is the staff - amazingly friendly, very helpful, extremely kind and go the extra mile to guide and help - they give the impression of not being in it for the money (give guidance on what they think are best economical deals) which was refreshing.

We have requesting an early check-in when we made our reservation. This request were followed up three days prior our departure to Istanbul. The normal notification was received from the hotel: an early check-in could only be established upon arrival at the hotel. Arriving at the hotel at 08H00 we were told that no rooms were available and that our rooms (2 double and 2 single) will be ready for check-in at 13H00 and we could leave our luggage at the hotel. We arrived back at the hotel at 14H00, just to be told that the rooms are not ready. Following some hard words my partner and I were given a better room and we could check-in. The rest of our party could also checked-in within 15 minutes. One single room was not to our liking and the staff changed it to a better located room. No service was available on the roof terrace after breakfast. We wanted to have a drink following a day of sight-seeing but no one was available. Apart from abovementioned the staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. The receptionist even phoned the transport company (transport from hotel to airport on departure) to confirm the pick-up. The hotel is situated centrally in a quiet street close to metro stations and within walking distance from restaurants and the main tourist attractions. Even though the hotel surroundings are not perfect I would recommend it to anyone wishing to visit Istanbul for the first time.

This hotel is very close to everything, all the main mosques such as the Sophia and blue. The hotel itself is average and by all means not boutique. When we first arrived we were infored we have been upgraded to a deluxe suite for no extra charge (we booked a double). The suite is large and the bed was comfortable, the decor is quite tacky and there is a lot of furniture in the room. Now there are 2 major problems with this hotel, the walls and ceilings are not sound proofed and therefore at 6am every morning when the kitchen started preparing breakfast( which was also a dissapointment but good views from the rooftop) we would hear everything. Every bang, drop, footstep, everything! So no sleeping in past 6am for us. And secondly there is a problem with the drainage at Noahs Ark as the drain in our bathroom was leaking a foul smell and even in the lobby downstairs smelled the same mostly at night. So overall i would not stay here again and i would not recommend it to other travellers going to Istanbul, there is better out there for the price.

We had a good stay at Noah's Ark. The great thing about this hotel is the people who run it. Hamdi and Omer, who manned the front desk, were extremely friendly and helpful. It was delightful to see their ever-friendly and welcoming faces at all times. Yilmaz, the manager, was also kind and courteous. There was a mix up with the category of room that we ere given, and Yilmaz was quick to rectify the situation to our satisfaction. The hotel is spotlessly clean, and the breakfast is ample. The location is fabulous, you can't do better - away from the busy Sultanhamet Street, yet just round the corner from Aya Sophia and Basilica Cistern. We found it convenient to go back to the hotel in between our sightseeing for a loo break! The tea kettle in the room and the ample supplies of tea bags etc definitely helped! I would recommend this hotel to all for its cleanliness, location, amenities (lift and terrace with view of Aya Sophia) and the attitude of the staff.

This was a great find. By European standards, the room was large! Good quality double glazed windows kept out outside noise. Room was furnished with beautiful Turkish carpets. There was a nice area in front of the windows that provided a comfortable place to sit with 2 arm chairs and a table. The mini fridg was a little akwardly placed which made opening one of the closet doors a little difficult and the room safe was on the floor in the corner of the closet which was a little difficult to access. Bathroom fixtures were modern, but there was no place to put any toiletries, even though there was space for a cabinet or shelf. The breakfast room had a good view of Topkapi and the selection of items was more than adequate. There were Turkish and western options and the ladies in the kitchen prepared fresh omelettes upon request. We were at this property for 5 nights so the space and location near major Istanbul sights and the transportation system was a big plus. There are dozens of small hotel options in this busy section of Istanbul, but the location of Noah's on this relatively quiet street is something to take into consideration when making your hotel choice. The staff and management were very helpful and asked everyday if everything was satisfactory.

As they say "Your home away from home". It definetely made us feel at home during our stay. It weas clean, well furnishing and designed room. The whole staf was very welcoming and friendly at all the time. We got all the information we needed from the front desk about everything. Location also made the most of it. Very near the Hagia Sophia and the Hipoddrome as well as Blue Mosque. Thank you to everyone at Noah's Ark Hotel.

Pretty new hotel with a perfect location, great staff and the service. We had a very warm welcoming and given information about the hotel and the all of Istanbul. This trip was a real experince of Istanbul for us. Within a minute or two, we could get to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Hipodromme etc.. The breakfast on the roof top (by the view of the Hagia Sophia and some part of the Bosphorus) was also a perfect start for the new day. Our room was clean. So, overall, We made a perfect choise by staying at Noah's Ark Hotel. Thank you to everyone & sure we will see each other soon..
