    Great location. Room was small but very clean and surprisigly quiet. Going across the road to their other hotel for breakfast was great. Rooftop terrace with great view of sea and the Blue Mosque. A large choice of food. Great fresh orange juice. Would stay here again.

    My wife and I spent 4 nights at The Hippodrome Hotel. Lovely place, good location and friendly staff. What's also good is they serve coffee, tea, juices and light snacks (cakes and cookies) the evenings free of charge which was a pleasant welcome especially after a long day out.

    Loud music and singing from the restaurant across the road which goes on till way pass midnight.

    Superb

    Great location as close to all the main attractions in Sultanahmet. Room is not large but very comfortable with small table and chairs plus a coffee / tea maker. Beds firm and comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful

    Room too hot, could not turn off central heating during day so room was very hot as was the bathroom. A misunderstanding with reception meant my friend had to pay for the room when all they needed to do was ask as the room was booked in my name. This spoilt the stay a little.

    we chose the hippodrome mainly for the location, we have been to istanbul a few times and wanted to stay in a central location

    the unly thing would be having to go to a different hotel for breakfast, don`t get me wrong breakfast was good but felt strange eating there

    Location of the hotel is excellent , within walking distance from St. Sophia , Grand Bazaar ,Blue Mosque and tram station from were you can visit other sites of the city. Personnel is very friendly and always happy to help with anything .

    Very good

    The hotel is located 100 metres from the Blue Mosque, the staff is very friendly and helpfull, price is quite reasonable even for high season (we were staying at Christmas holidays)

    Very small room, breakfast is served at the next building (the hotel owned by the same owner); there is no "tea set" in the room, only at the ground floor

    Guest rating

    The hotel location was amazing. The breakfast, although served at a different building was the best breakfast I tried in hotels, it is fresh and healthy.

    The front desk person was very opinionated, he was openly expressing his dislike of our home country. The room was very very tiny for a family of three, we couldnt move around. There was no kettle in the room or safe, we had to wait 3 days until they actually gave us a kettle. The 2 water bottles in the fridge had a charge, which most hotels give complimentary. The triple room is actually a single room with 3 beds. The sink was clogged when we came. It took ages to clean rooms, we stayed 2 days without cleaning our room, we only had our bathroom cleaned. The AC/Heater was not working properly, they sent the technician who did nothing. There is no wide variety of restuarants aroung the hotel, all of them serve the same food.

    I love the Ottoman style. The best I like about this hotel is the hotel staff. They are very helpful. Especially my favorite "Zamir" who madeour first trip to Istanbul special.

    Only one very little thing, there should be provided the electric water boiler inorder for the guest like me to have hot water making before bed tea after come back from the freezy outdoor walk.
