Отличное местоположение. 10-20 минут прогулочным шагом до большинства достопримечательностей и исторических мест. Вкусный и разнообразный завтрак. Внимательный и дружелюбный персонал. Идеальное сочетание цена/качество. Очень рекомендую: для бизнеса, семейного или дружеского отдыха

Φτάσαμε 9:30 στο ξενοδοχείο και μας πρόσφεραν το πρωινό δωρεαν! Νιώσαμε σαν να μας φιλοξενουσαν. Πεντακάθαρο δωμάτιο. Κοντά σε ολα τα αξιοθέατα! Πολυ καλό πρωινό, και κάθε πρωί ακολουθούσαμε τις οδηγίες του hotel manager για ωραίες βόλτες!

“Exceeded expectations” Me boyfriend and I stayed at hotellino just before Easter for 4 nights. I am a travel agent and have worked in travel for over 10 years so have seen a lot of hotels, and this hotel exceeded my expectations, our room was great! very spacious, big comfortable bed, little balcony, mini bar, which wasn't over priced, less than £3 for a local beer & free water, modern clean bathroom, like a home from home. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wanted to book a trip to Istanbul with confidence, and I would go back to this lovely hotel in a wonderful city

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent Only 24 Rooms In This Hidden Treasure. I Travel 48 weeks Each Year And Stay In All Types Of Hotels. Many May Be Beautiful On The Outside With No Feeling Whatsoever. Not This Hidden Treasure. From The Moment I Arrived At 2AM They Were Waiting With My Key And Helping With My Luggage. Great Welcome After A Long Journey. Upon My Continued Visits (Choose Not To Stay Anywhere Else) Even Though The Lobby Was Full With A New Bus Load Of Clients I Was Welcomed And Given The Key To My Room. Breakfast Is Good And The Owners Or Manager (Tuna Canceler) Are Always Available To Help With Your Daily Plans. My Business Partners Came To Meet Me And Were Greeted The Same Way And We Were Able To Meet In The Lobby Area With Wifi Access Without Any Issues. My Partners Were Impressed. We Were Even Offered Snacks.The Warmth I Feel In Your Hotel Makes Me Not Want To Leave. Thank You / See You Soon.

About us

Mine studied at the American high school of Istanbul and Berge attended the French Galatasaray high school. They both later continued their studies at the Bosphorus University, studying management and economics, later choosing to pursue careers in tourism. For years, they accompanied Turkish tour groups to the four corners of the world, and Berge additionally worked for many years as a tour guide for foreigners visiting Turkey.

In 1987, they moved to Paris, where Berge managed a tour operator company and Mine became an English teacher. They continued travelling the world with their two children who were born there.

In 2009, they moved back to Istanbul and opened Hotellino, a hotel that carries the stamp of their life and travel experiences.

They aim to make their guests feel at home while experiencing Istanbul like  locals, hoping to share their love for their city. Fortunately, Mine and Berge are not alone in this undertaking since the whole staff of Hotellino accompanies them to provide the guests with a comfortable and unique stay, wishing all together that this adventure continues…
