              8.2

              Very helpful staff and location! When I asked the reception manager how to get to the hotel, I received detailed description of 4 options of getting there. In terms of location, it is just a few minutes walk from the Blue Mosque, tram and train station (if you carry heavy luggage you'd be better of taking a taxi/shuttle arranged by the hotel). Excellent sea view from the upper floor breakfast room.

              Good breakfast for Instabul. Nice staff. Good location.

              Very small rooms that need painting and redecoration. Very hard matresses. Not very clean. Expensive for what it offers.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              It was very near to the blue mosque and the Agia Sophia, and not too far from the tram. The roof top view from the breakfast area was super!

            • Couple
              9.2

              The staff was excellent and very friendly. The location was very good and I liked the Turkish breakfast with yogurt, olives, etc. It was a nice change from the usual hotel breakfast. The room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Our towels were replaced daily and the prices were very good. Our shuttle to the airport didn't come, and when it was 15 minutes late we got worried and the man at the front desk called to find out it was full and not coming for us. Instead of leaving it to us to worry about, he immediately called a cab and we didn't have to pay for any additional costs, only the 10 euro we had paid for the shuttle. I was very impressed that he took the initiative and didn't make us fend for ourselves and mess our flight.

              We stayed at the satellite location a block or two away on a busier street with lots of restaurants and bars. The area was great for dinner and having things to do, but it was pretty noisy. The people above us could be heard very clearly on the hardwood floors when they walked, and if the restaurant downstairs from us was busy it was loud in our room. Maybe pack some earplugs, but all in all it was still a good hotel. It was nothing fancy and the room was very small, but I would stay there again.

              If i come to Istanbul next time, I'll stay this hotel

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              I stayed at the Kaftan hotel over the Easter holidays. I found staff very polite and always ready to give plenty of information. The hotel is centrally located and 5-minute walk from the major attractions (Blue Mosque and AYA SOFYA) and 10 minutes from the nearest tram station. We could basically walk everywhere. We just took the tram to go up to Taskim square and back to the airport. Rooms are quiet. I found very useful to have internet for free at the reception. The view from the breakfast room is amazing. I would definitely go back to the Kaftan Hotel.

              Rooms are really small. My friend and I shared a double bed, which just fit into the room. Bathroom is really small. Ideal if you go with your girlfriend/wife or with a very very good friend...there isn't much privacy. Breakfast is OKish...not much and pretty much the same every day. But it was filling...which is good if you expect walking all day visinting the beautiful monuments of Istanbul.

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              The location of the hotel is excellent near to the Blue Mosque and Haghia Sophia. The customer service delivered by the staff was excellent also - they were always happy to meet your needs - their catchphrase being "everything is possible"

            • Family with children
              8.8

              We are a family with two little kids stayed at Kaftan from 24 to 27 June, 2011. When we arrived we noticed, that there were dozens of small hotels nearby, so it was not an easy to find Kaftan among them. We personally enjoyed our stay at Kaftan, it had small but very cozy room, so four of us were compactly placed. We enjoyed having a breakfast at the hotels terrace with the sea view, while observing boats in Marmara sea. But the most thing, that we liked was hotel personnel. They are all very kind and welcoming. I should mention, that Booked.net provides very good rates, because normal Kaftan hotel price was 70% higher.

              Proper and carefully service, clean and quiet family hotel. You can spend there some days and learn the city.

              No elevator that may be problem for some people

            • Group of friends
              3.8

              The best we did was when we moved to another hotel.... There was no balcony....very small rooms...The information on Booked.net was not what it said....If you are backpacker...and travelling alone or a couple who wants to share small bed...it`s ok price....No roof teracce...Sorry..No information that the shuttleservice cost 28 euros....one way....

            • Couple
              5.4

              Good location, small rooms with tv and fridge. Nothing special, basic but acceptable quality, breakfast ok

              No elevator - not comfortable to carry the baggage in the small stairs, the mosque is very close, might be too loud, some of the rooms are tiny

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Staff are very frıendly and helpful. Breakfast was very satısfyıng.

              The nearness to the raıl-lıne and the mınaret may be dısruptıve to some. We accustomed ourselves quıte quıckly.

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              All staff were most helpful and most hospitable/polite and friendly. Made to feel welcome. Clean towels most days or when needed, room cleaned however late we let for the day. Access to heating (winter) as we needed. Very convenient for sightseeing/travel and in quiet location. Also very authentic. Cannot say anything other than excellent and such good value for money

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              Nice location, friendly personnel.

              Rooms are really small; two beds, small wardrobe and night table could hardly fit in our double room. Our room also has a crack in shower under-pan (hence a lot of water on the floor after taking a shower), and it was not fixed.

            • Couple
              8.2

              Very friendly and welcoming staff, from those behind the desk to the chef who prepares breakfast. Excellent location, being around five minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and it was amazing to hear the call to prayer five times a day. There's also another mosque just around the corner (only 30 seconds away). The Sea of Marmara is a short 10 minute walk which is a really nice place to relax with your significant other half. It's also around 10 minutes to walk to the nearest tram stop (Sultanhamet) which we found to be the most convenient way to get about. You'll be amazed at how regular the services are and it only costs 1.75 Turkish Lira per person for each journey, which is less than 80p presently. Would recommend this hotel for sure.

              Booked double room, but they only had a twin room available when we arrived. Fortunately, in the end, it did work out quite well for us. You also have to remember it's a 3-star small family hotel, so things here, while for us were definitely acceptable, may not be for those that require no less than Hilton/Radisson/Marriott standards.
