Very Clean.bathroom and toilet is Clean. Every where in hotel was Clean although the Weather was snowy.
Most of staff and Workers are excelent.
Most of item such as shampoo, Gell, body lotion is available and they give u dental Kit or shaving Kit if u want.
There is a Place for playing kids.
Water pressure and Temp. In bathroom is good
Bad items:
The rooms are not Soundproof. One time i was in 4th floor and one time in 7th floor, both time, the room wasn't Sound proof.
Pool is open from 10 am to 10 PM. If this was city like antalia it was a bit acceptable. But in istanbul this time is not good

The spa of this hotel is amazing. The swimming pool is spacious and its 28 degrees temperature. They allow 4 people at the time. Who gives you some privacy while you are there. Food is good as well. They allow outside visitors to use the spa by paying a small fee to use the facilities. Definitely recommended

We had a great experience staying at Melas hotel . The Hotel is new and the rooms give you the feeling like you are the first one in that room, super clean .
service is great and room service food was delicious.
As I have booked the room by calling them there was some misunderstanding with the reception they have immediately fixed it and gave us an extra room for free . I stayed in a lot of hotels in istanbul but I can say this one was one of the best for sure .
When we checked out the manager of the hotel Mr. Kaan Erbasar came to ask us if we had a good time staying at the hotel ( which was really nice ) . In total me and my friends had an amazing time there .
Except for one girl which looked angry the rest of the receptionists were very friendly and super nice 👍🏻 Rafet is amazing👍🏻

I stayed there from 8th to 11th August 2022. The hotel is a small one with glamorous pictures made to impress people with photo shop. After checking in, I booked deluxe room for 5 people and after checking in I was told that I had to lay 250 lira per person for breakfast which is too much for the useless breakfast they serve. Location is 20 minutes walk from the metro train station which is very inconvenient. Deluxe room size is a small one. It does not have the facilities of a five star hotel, just the price. Lobby is small with not much to do. I would recommend people to always go for international hotel chains as they have a good standard and better prices. It can be a place for stags and party goers and not for families. Good place to pick up hookers. Room service food is below average and very expensive. My money as well as holidays ate waisted by staying here. Air conditioning also does not work well. Have complained about the problems in the hotel to the manager but things were ignored. I am a frequent visitor of Istanbul and always stayed at 5 star International Hotel chains. There is greenery and only brick and mortar everywhere. This is the first time I choose a local 5 star hotel and was defrauded. If this service is provided to deluxe room guests, God knows what will standard room guests get. The government should also check the 5 star wrong title the hotel holds and downgrade it. Melas Hotel Istanbul is a clear no to stay in.

The hotel is not organised. For sure it’s not a five star hotel . Receptionist asked to pay again and again same extra I payed cash at bar. I will never get a reservation there . In front of melas there is surmeli hotel and you can pay less and less with a better organisation. Avoid this hotel .

Beautiful hotel. Gorgeous and modern decor, with local amenities close by. However the hotel is on a busy road, but is close to a bus stop and metro is about 800 meters away, which would take about 10 mind to walk to. The hotel itself is very clean and modern, beds comfortable but the walls are paper thin as you can hear your neighbours very clearly which can be loud. Infact you could hear people from a number of rooms away.

Staff were happy to move us to a Different room when we asked.

Staff are hit and miss, some are very helpful and couldn't do enough for you, like the bell boy Hussain, couldn't thank him enough for his help and advice about getting around Istanbul.

Yusuf from the breakfast staff was brilliant as well, always had a smile on his face, great sense of humour and very helpful.

Some of the staff at reception don't even make eye contact with you and appear to have a superiority complex.

The gym / swimming pool staff just stare at you and don't offer any help or support and only give one worded answers when you ask the a question, that's on a good day. At times they won't even talk if you ask them a question. Lifeguard was watching something on his phone with the volume on max, which made it difficult to relax.

Breakfast was nice and plentiful.

Not giving this hotel a full 5 stars due to the noise issues with the rooms and some of the staff suffering from superiority complex. Suppose the latter issue can be rectified by sacking certain staff and replacing them with new ones.

Overall a very good experience though.

I had the opportunity to stay at the Hotel Melas in Istanbul. Let me begin by saying that when I arrived, the staff was extremely friendly; they took my bags; my check-in was very simple, and I was taken to my room. The rooms are very well designed and nicely decorated. The hotel has all of the amenities you would need during your stay, including a spa, gym, sauna, and a nice little bar lounge area where you can sit outside and enjoy a cigar or cigarette with a drink. The breakfast was excellent; the menu changed daily, and the food was delicious. Eggs, pancakes, and waffles were prepared to order. The food selection was well-balanced to appeal to a wide range of palates. The hotel staff is exceptionally well trained and very hospitable. I never felt unable to get what I needed when I needed it. It's a nice boutique hotel, not a large hotel.

Very modern and neat hotel located in an extremely safe area, accessible location to nearby malls and fun activities perfect for large families. The rooms itself were clean along with different areas of the hotel. You have a wide range of services such as a pool, gym and cafe. The whole team of staff was very positive and welcoming, especially waiter zeynel who is always happy to cater to your needs ever so kindly. We thank the whole melas team :)

Where do I start! Melas hotel is a gem of a hotel. It’s clean and has all the amenities of a 5* hotel. But it’s people that make places! My stay was wonderful from the time I arrived till the time of departure. The location of the hotel is fairly central to get to most places in Istanbul. However, if you are a first time visitor in Istanbul and you are looking to occupy in the main tourist attractions, then you may wish to consider a hotel in the Sultanahmet or Taksim square area. But having said that, you can still commute from here within half an hour by taxi (depending on traffic which can be heavy at the most of times). But if a peaceful night sleep is necessary, then this is the place to be.

Breakfast was very tasty and there was a good variety of food. If there is anything in particular you would like then that can be arranged. Once again, nothing is too much trouble. I used to have the best Turkish tea here which I’ll miss. A big thanks to Emre Zeytun and his team for their hospitality and bending over backwards. Emre, you have promised to show me the Asian side of Istanbul next time I am there so I will look forward to that.

Also, a big thanks to Leyla at the reception for all her efforts. Leyla is a gem at this beautiful hotel and she will go to all lengths to help her guests with the information required. She is very friendly, helpful and a lovely person. Thank you Leyla.
Everyone at the hotel makes so much effort (with a smile) that is so effortless that you don’t mind asking. There are so many people I would like to thank for contributing to the comfort of my stay but I apologize as I was unable to take the names of them all.

I wish all the team here a continued success and I look forward to coming back here soon.

I traveled with 34 people who they were my VIP customers so i tried to choose hotel very carefully and considered many items.
Hotel was in almost good area and only 10 min walk to Cevahir Mall where is one of good malls in Istanbul. At the beginning we had very long checking and we arrived at 12 pm and the last room was given to us at 5 PM and its some how normal because we had 18 rooms. The major problem which i think you should be informed that most of normal double rooms are small and therefore never go for more extra bed. Although we took one and i decided to change it to a double and one single and hotel manager was really helpful.
Room was small but clean and sleep quality was normal.
Breakfast was good.
One of the strange case that we faced was last night of our stay Istanbul was rainy and my guest rooms in different floor even 2nd floor at midnight had bad leakage.
