Nothing at all
Worst location and service ever!! It was so noisy around that I have changed my hotel immediately after one night and I lost 2 nights worth of money because of that , the property refused to refund it to me
Location is excelent.
cleanliness very poor.
The best is the very central location of the hotel. Also it’s very cheap to stay there. The stuff is very very friendly and involved and helps you with everything. The rooms are very small and old, but okay for the price. The breakfast is also okay. They offer a very cheap and good transfer to the airport.
My room wasn’t ready as I arrived, even though it was time to check-in. I could store my luggage at the reception and they offered me something to drink, while I was waiting. The furniture is old and could be newer.
Nice, helpful staff, perfect location - you can reach all major Istanbul attractions on foot just in minutes. Decent breakfast.
Noise. A lot of noice, sometimes it even felt like there are no walls between your room and corridor. Old elevator making huge noise which was disturbing. Bathroom was always damp as there is no shower curtain.
Nothing - bad food, bad customer service, bad hygiene
the Condition of the hotel was disgusting, all the furniture in our room was broken, no sheets were cleaned in 8 days & COCKROACHES!!
A stay at Şamil Hotel places you in the heart of Istanbul, within a 10-minute walk of Cagaloglu Hamami and Istanbul Archaeology Museum. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours).
