Hotel Topkapi
Ranked #770 of 1,101 Istanbul B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 August 2017

Assigned room was crappy and a/c noisy, found out later that much better rooms existed. Staff does not speak enough english to answer simple questions. No customer service, instead staff and manager bully and intimidatesyou when you have a legitimate complaint (staff removed expensive item from room and they didn't wanted to reimburse it). Frigthening atmosphere in hotel. Don't stay here if you want to enjoy your trip to Istanbul

Room Tip: complain until you have a half way decent room, no towels and sheets were in the room

not a bad place for low budget trip. but dont expect much,there was mid-age guy who spoke farsi and english but he was rude dont know
why...the rooms were ok if you just need a place to sleep the night nothing fancy , breakfast was simple , overall not a bad place for being on the budget.

Room Tip: i think they had two types of rooms , newly renovated and old ones

The room was too small,it's very dark. The staff can't speak English at all.The location of hotel was good because it was near to Aksray metro station.The worst thing is Ambulance alarm, always we hear ambulance alarm.
the internet speed not bad, but some time it wont work at all.

Well, the hotel seems to be a budget hotel. Since you dont need to pay too much for this hotel, it worthes the amount you pay. The location was good as it was almost near to many tourist attractions. Regarding the location, the advantage is that its close to bus and monorail station which gives you a great access to many places around Istanbul. Although I just had breakfasts there, but thr food quality was good. The internet speed was not that good, however I had no problem with it across the lobby.

In one word: Terrible!
In more than one word:
1-extraordinary rude people work here
2-only day receptionist knows English and no one else
3-i don't know what walls are made of but you can hear the people next door just like they are in your room, and believe me, you don't want to hear it!
3-everytime someone starts smoking, you can smell the smoke and in turkey someone is always smoking
4-air conditioner is broken and I'm alive because of the extra blankets i bring myself
5-the parrot in the lobby won't let you sleep till morning by noises it makes in the few first floors, so i wish you book for the higher floors when you're here. no, i wish you never be here
6-there's no regular daily cleaning. There was no room cleaning for 2 days at my 7 days stay here
Conclusion: some people said it's only good for sleeping, i say it's good for nothing! You have better options with the same or cheaper prices around here.
