    The free internet at reception and the friendly waiter/butler. Nice room and bathroom. Close to Mosques and Topkapi etc. Also close to nice restaurants.

    Incredibly noisy at night, I really struggled to sleep. Not enough space to unpack in room and no coat hooks etc.

    the hotel although small was very clean and comfortable and the staff were extremely helpful. It was my birthday and the manager upgraded our room at no extra cost.The room was lovely, and the location of the hotel was excellent, close to all the sights.

    This hotel is a gem in the Old City, some minutes walk away from the major attractions. The hotel facade is not impressive, but the moment you get inside! Staff very friendly and helpful. Nice room with air- conditioning, modern bath. My bed was quite hard, but I like it that way. Breakfast buffet more than satisfactory, and you can bring your food out on the terrace. Very quiet, I heard seagulls and a cat and the occasional call from a minaret. No traffic noise. And - I forgot to mention the lovely roof terrace with chairs and tables and a great view. And the rate we paid was very reasonable.

    This hotel has an excellent location with reasonable access to the airport (via taxi along Kennedy Cad), ferry and train (via Sultanahmet tram), and the major sights between the Blue Mosque and Topkapi (on foot). Being in the Sultanahmet area means that everyone is selling something from meals to carpets, but once you run the gauntlet, the Poem is a welcome refuge of quiet rooms and friendly staff. There is a seashore walk along the Bosphorus to watch the boats and people, but no beaches - there are nearby parks and museums with more history than most countries, but no amusement rides. Our stay included good breakfasts and a concept that we could come back from exploring other areas in Turkey.

    I really had to look for something in this category, but the only thing I could think of is that the free wifi service is a bit spotty - if anyone takes this comment as a serious complaint, they need to get off the internet and see the sights.

    Pleasant, welcoming staff, and fantastic roof terrace for dinner and breakfast with view over Sea of Marmara, and of Aghia Sofia and the Blue Mosque. Clean, modern room at a very good price.

    It is small, and the rooms are small. Breakfast was modest and a bit pre-processed -- no fresh orange juice, and only instant coffee (which is a shock, when Turkish coffee is so good.

  • Older travelers

    Centrality, friendly, helpful staff, views of Sea of Marmara from some rooms and terrace. Excellent breakfast.

    Rooms small and cramped but they are knocking the whole place down next year and rebuilding with bigger rooms etc. Sounds very promising.

    The tranquility and he staff were absolutely wonderful; the breakfasts excellent and it was tremendous value for money. I have been to Istanbul six times, always staying in a different hotel. Hotel Poem was far and away the best and I would go back thee next time without a doubt.

    Relaxed atmosphere, helpful staff, comfortable facilities, super location, exciting and delicious breakfasts - varied daily. Extra dimension with the (translated) Turkish poem in each room, thought- provoking.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Friendly management and location.

    Cramped room. lack of plugs, no space to put anything.

  • Couple
    8.2

    Excellent location in the old city center, just a few minutes walk from the Blue Mosque, Topkapi and Aya Sophia. Marvelous views on the Bosphurus. Very pleasant terraces for breakfast. Very friendly and helpful staff

    Some of the rooms are relatively small, so you may want to ask for teh bigger room when making your reservation
