All Staff, especially Younes and Yaseen; Free Parking.
Katelya is a nice hotel on many counts: it has excellent location, it is modern and very clean, has very helpful staff and offers excellent breakfast.
Two things stand out as clear problems: first, A/C sometimes blows in the smell of cigarette smoke. I suppose people are smoking around the air intake, and you can feel this in the room. When this happens, it feels pretty bad. It hit me at least three times over my stay of 5 nights. I am not over-sensitive, but I had to turn A/C on and open the windows to clear the air - twice in the middle of the night. The second issue is that the rooms are actually quite small - not a lot of space to move around. No desk to place a notebook on. Bonus problem: not a lot of power outlets in the room, so you have to juggle your devices.
Nothing was too much for the staff. They were incredibly friendly and lovely people. The room and breakfasts were also fantastic. We also loved the cats outside. They were so cared for by the community! Highly recommend this place!
We loved everything about this Hotel!
The hotel is situated in a very quiet street, but in the heart of Istambul. The traffic is very low here, and you can ask parking place in front of the hotel for free. The rooms' design is Turkish, very nice. Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar: all are in walking distance. The breakfast is very-very good.
Only the design faucets in the bathroom: typical design error. Less would have been more in this case.
Located in Istanbul (Sultanahmet), Katelya Hotel is within a 10-minute walk of Hippodrome of Constantinople and Sultanahmet Square.
