Why go any where else
i booked his hotel from paris, just from reading the reviews. and i was over whelmed by the customer service here. from the second i turned up they came out to ensure the taxi driver wasnt charging me too much, carried my bags to my room, and from there on just got better. thats what makes a great place for me to stay is the PEOPLE at the place, and these guys are second to none, infact i loathe to say the service here is better then i was getting in paris for more then 10 times the price. in particular Mesut and Seda, 2 of the staff, just went out of their way to help me find a boat, and to book things on line on turkish websites, as i have no turkish language skills at all. the location is great, for exploring the old city, which has all the cool markets, and buildings, and the tram and buses are within a 2 minute walk. the place was spotless, and the breakfast restaurant has a great view, and good coffee. cant praise them enough. truly great experience all round.... and they say youre only as good as your last customer...........you will be satisfied........why go anywhere else..........
A 5 star hotel in miniature!
The Niles hotel is a charming, modern hotel situated in one of the best locations of Istanbul. I discovered this hotel by chance, and was amazed at its extremely high standards in all realms - in particular the customer service and the cleanliness, which were second to none. The staff were friendly, warm and were ready to help solve any possible query or problem (not that there were many). The rooms are small but spotless(I have never experienced such a high level of cleanliness in a 3 star hotel), modern and very comfortable. The rooftop terrace on which one can sip coffee or have a leisurely breakfast offers a beautful view of the Bosphorus, and although the breakfast is simple, it is fresh and plentiful. I highly recommend the Niles Hotel and look forward to my next stay there...
What a pleasant surprise was to enter through the door of Hotel Niles for the first time. The lobby was cozy, the staff was absolutely charming and helpful, the air smelled so clean... Although small, this hotel offers everything a traveller is looking for. A helpful staff, clean and tidy rooms with the small stuff we like to find in them (slippers, little soaps and bottles) and a nice breakfast buffet in a terrace with a great view.
Although you won't be in Sultanahmet - where hotels are much more expensive - you'll be in a perfect location. You may well enjoy a few minutes walk to Sultanahment or hop into the tram just half a block from the hotel (cheap, reliable and can take you to Sultanahment or even further, if you prefer). The Grand Bazaar is just 2 blocks from the hotel.
Friendly and well located
Hotel Niles is in a great location within walking distance to the major sights of Istanbul, close to tramway & buses also. The staff were very friendly and spole good English, and also had helpful suggestions for things to do and see. Breakfast was good, fresh and well served. We would recommend the hotel without hesitation, and we would return here if ever in Istanbul again. Hope this helps, Mr & Mrs M (a young couple from England).
As a business traveller I am looking for small cosy hotels.
I really have found where I was looking for. Not a Sheraton hotel but fully fulfilling my wishes and demands. The best description of the hotel is what they have put on the Internet themselves and I can say it is just like that. The only which I can add to is the absolute great service of all the people in the hotel. I will recommend it to all of you, you will feel comfortable in a minute.
Niles - A 5 star Service Hotel
Being a first time visitor to Istanbul alone, I did extensive research online to find the most affordable, clean, safe and friendly hotel. I must say Hotel Niles has more than met my expectations. When I first arrived I immediately experienced the staffs friendliness as they help me pay my cab fare first as I did not have the hindsight to change currency to Turkish Lira, I only have Euro $$; that have helped me save considerably as the cab driver would have charged me much more in Euro $$; another extend of the staffs helpfullness (Seda and her team) is in going all out to get me a travel adaptor for my laptop and get me connected to the internet. Of course they also are very helpful with directions, tourist information and the list goes on... Rooms are extremely clean and hotel is close by to various attractions. So all in all if you are looking for a value for money hotel with 5 star service this is it.
To Seda and team, my hats off to you and sincere thanks for making my stay such a wonderful one. I wish you all the best and for sure I will return to Istanbul again and would choose Hotel Niles again. You are what makes the difference!
Great Hotel in Istanbul
This was my third trip to Turkey, and I was very pleased and comfortable with my stay at the Hotel Niles in Istanbul. The manager of this hotel had communicated with me via e-mail prior to arrival regarding our upcoming visit, and transportation arrangments to and from the airport to the hotel. The hotel was comfortable and pleasant, and provided a traditional Turkish breakfast for the price of the room. One of the things that we especially enjoyed was the Rooftop Terrace where breakfast, and beverages were served. From this place, one had a beautiful view of Istanbul, and a place to relax and unwind. The staff at the Hotel Niles are warm, welcoming, and helpful. They provided an orientation for us, including helpful information about how to use the public transportation, and exchange currency. They were also very responsive to our requests and needs, including extra pillows, blankets, assistance with internet service, etc.
I would gladly stay at the Hotel Niles again in the future, and would highly recommend it to people looking for a comfortable and reasonably priced hotel in Istanbul.

Beautiful hotel with friendly staff
My fiancee and I had a great time in Istanbul. We were there for 4 nights and 5 relaxing days in mid october during Ramazan, we stayed at Hotel Niles which is a relatively small but beautiful hotel very close to the main tourist attractions, just a minute walk from the Grand Bazaar. I myself have traveled in the a past to Istanbul and I knew allready the city and it's peoples hospitality but even like this I had the pleasure to be surprised by the friendliness of Holel Niles's staff...they, Seda and Mustafa were always smiley and attentive to us, ready to offer traveltips and facts about Istanbul and Turkey in general...so, THANK YOU very much Seda and Mustafa once again for making our vacation a success in every possible way...see you next year.
Best wishes and much hapiness also for the waitress who is expecting a baby next spring.
For you fellow travelers I can tell you this: Hotel Niles is an excellent value for money and the nice view of the Marmara sea is complementary to your every delicious breakfast or late night tea.

Friendliness and Helpfulness at its finest!
We really enjoyed our stay at Hotel Niles. The team at the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful - nothing was a hassle! The hotel was clean and comfortable and the location was perfect for exploring the sites of Istanbul old town.
Highly recommended!! If only there were more family-run, service-focused, value-for-money hotels like it!
Tip: The staff helped arrange transfers from/to the airport - cheap and easy option!
The rooms were very cute and comfortable. The staff made the experience very enjoyable and personal. The breakfast was very good and the rooms were a great price. The staff spoke good english which was very helpful to us since many Turkish people don't. The receptionist gave us a lot of information about the city. You should go there, I would definitely go back!

... this bus line. There was a young mom sitting right in front of me who had two little girls that couldn't have been more than a year apart. There was a baby about 6 months old and a toddler. She let me hold her toddler while she tended to the baby. I thought she was very brave to take these two on a bus all by herself. When we got off the bus in Konya, the grandparents were waiting and there were cries of delight when the grandparents took these ...

You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country,
Therefore rest in peace,
There is no difference between the Johnnies

Here in this country of ours...
You, the mothers,

wipe away your tears;
Your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace.
