A five star hotel in an authentic part of Istanbul. The manager was extremely helpful and forthcoming. We had two excellent adjacent rooms on the ground floor for three weeks and we shall book this hotel whenever in Istanbul. We had the comfort of a five star hotel and paid a fraction of the price. Breakfast was excellent and we...

Real value. Really nice comfortable rooms. Owner really nice guy, very helpful. Don't be put off by the way the area looks. The area has character, away from tourist areas but close enough to walk to all the attractions. Safe area, great places to eat and cheaper than other areas.

This hotel is ideally situated close to the historic centre and as such is a great base for a tourist holiday. The room I had was large and clean and had all I could have wanted considering the price it was exceptional value. The owner Muhsine could not have been more helpful and arranged for my colleague to get a...

We stayed here three nights for a long weekend. The room was big, clean and had everything needed for a short stay. The bathroom was very clean, too. Wifi worked really well.

While the Helen Suites Hotel website gives the impression of high-level, it is certainly above average, and for the price, great. Good rooms and beds, kitchenette. The outstanding thing is that they advertise airport and tour pickup, and they really deliver! We walked the city for a few days. Helen Suites is very close to the Sea of Marmara and...
