                      Friendly staff. Wonderful view of sea and city from roof-top bar. The bar did not appear to be used. Convenient - a few hundred yards from large concentration of shops and restaurants, and the Blue Mosque.

                      We were greeted very warmly by the receptionist, Osman. He was very friendly. The second day receptionist was very friendly and helpful too.The only downside for us was the size of the room. It was very very small, The breakfast was included to our hotel stay, it was open buffet and was very good. The roof top is very nice too. The waitress there had a smiling face all the time. We enjoyed the view from the rooftop with our drinks. We liked the closeness of this hotel to the attractions and points of interests in Sultanahmet.

                      The room was very small, only a queen size bed and very tiny space to walk from one side of the bed to the other. But the room was nicely decorated and after a long tiring and hot day in Istanbul, we didn't feel the smallness, and we extended our stay to a second night.

                      Staff were helpful.

                      We were totally disappointed in this hotel, we booked after reading the positive reviews. The photographs on line are very misleading as the place looks so good, however, in reality it is quite shabby and much smaller than it appears on line. Most definitely not 4 star even for Turkey!

                      Optimally loacted with respect to walking-distance major sight seeings

                      This hotel is one of the unrated common building-converted types very frequently encountered in Sultan Ahmet area. Rooms are not therefore designed as real hotel rooms but more of pension/hostel type rooms although sufficiently clean & serviced. The facilities & furniture are minimal and the room spaces are very tight regardless of what the pictures show. The price is therefore more related to the location but not to the hotel quality. Many other hotels in the area would be typical replicates of Artefes. Probably Takseem rated hotels can easily surpass in quality with same or a little higher price.

                      Fond memories of my 1-week stay at Artefes; an oasis in Sultanahmet with warm hospitality, good location from which to explore the city, beautiful rooftop terrace with superb view, excellent buffet breakfast, comfortable room - clean with nice decor. Would certainly return!

                      No negative comments on the hotel. However, I was informed only at checkout time that if I paid cash I would have received a 10% disount. It was too late to run to an ATM...

                      Staff was wonderful. Location is pretty hard to find given address on both Booked.net and website--we wandered around for almost an hour. Street is a little dark but just a few blocks away is busy area. Rooms are simple--more like fancy hostel. Fitness center is an old treadmill and a weight machine--not exactly the "gym" advertised!

                      - free WiFi - free pick-up from airport

                      - room was too pricey for this quality - not sufficient service in buffet (food was not filled up, when it was emptied (e.g. bread))

                      It is very clean and beautiful, the staff are friendly and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Breakfast is excellent as well, it is fresh and has a variety of selections. We also received a 10% discount. The room and the view were amazing, we had a one day business meeting and the location was excellent for this. I hope that I will be able to come back to Artefes again.

                      The internet was in and out but it was a provider problem and it was fixed very quickly.

                      Artefes Hotel is a nice hotel in a nice neighbourhood. The staff was very polite and helpful. The cleaning was very good and we could always look forward to going back to our hotel 'cause we knew our rooms would be neat and tidy when we got back. The location is perfect: It's close to the Blue Mosque, The Grand Bazaar and etc, but the area is quiet and very ideal for a family.
