    Location 5.57 /10

    The Mosaic is located in the old town in the area of Laleli, near the University. The historical sites of Sultanahmet are 10 minutes away by tram. Allow 20 minutes for the transfer to the airport (9 miles).

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The rooms are bright but relatively small. They are air conditioned with satellite television, a mini-bar and a telephone with a direct international line. The bathrooms have bathtubs, toilets and hair-dryers. The rooms have a small balcony which can unfortunately not be used much because the area is noisy.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    Built in 1989 and renovated in 2000, the Mosaic is a modern building with 119 rooms set within 4 floors, with elevator. The large lobby has a bar on a mezzanine level. In the basement there is a little fitness centre with sauna, hammam and a few gym machines. It is a pity it is not better maintained. Also in the basement is a little dance floor and a bar which are used as a disco during summer.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    On the ground floor, behind the lobby, is the hotel's restaurant, where breakfast is served. The buffet is standard and unexciting: hard boiled eggs, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, jam, cherry juice, cheese... You can also have an a la carte lunch and dinner. There is not much choice and the quality of the food is not good.

    To know

    Given the considerably noise pollution in the area, steer clear of the rooms overlooking the street, and request one on the top floor overlooking the courtyard. You won't be missing anything in terms of the view: it is equally uninteresting in all the rooms.

      A small hotel on a human scale, the Yigitalp has a good level of comfort in a pleasant, unpretentious setting. Laleli district, where it is located, is good for experiencing a bit of local colour.

      • Easyopinions nc
      • Value for money 7.32
      • Location 5.4

      This establishment really is too outdated to be able to appreciate its positive aspects, such as its restaurant terrace and its location in the very heart of the shopping district of Laleli.
      It is a small and rather unimpressive hotel offering a pretty average level of service.
      If you particularly want to stay in this area, we'd recommend you try the Grand Emin instead, which happens to be run by the same people.

      • Value for money 7.34
      • Location 3.0

      As its name indicates, the Sumahan on the Water is a little world on the water. Inside, it displays a balance of lines and shapes that create a modern style and is never cold. This is a bit of a surprise given the exterior aspect of the building, which management wanted to keep as nondescript as possible.
      This effort to go unnoticed speaks of the attention afforded to the guests, in terms of welcome, service, and cuisine. The Sumahan blends luxury and attention to detail together with know-how, efficiency, good taste, and quality.
      It also commands one of the finest views of the Bosphorus there is. It really is in a league of its own.
