This hotel is good, but highly over-rated on Trip Advisor in my opinion. Positives: 1. The location is perfect, close to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and the Palace. 2. The staff is very good and will go out of their way to help. 3. The breakfast is good if you ask to have eggs cooked to order. 4. The... More

2 friends and I shared a junior suite on the 4th floor. The room was spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable (even the sofa bed) and because we were at the back of the hotel it was quiet as well. The abundant and tasty breakfast and in-room wifi were included at no additional charge. As a tourist the... More

We (family with 11 and 13 year old girls) recently stayed here over a long weekend and had an absolutely wonderful time mainly in part to the location of the hotel and the wonderful service from the hotel staff. This charming sixteen room hotel offers in room jacuzzi style tubs and an onsite Turkish Hammam (bath) facility. The sauna, fitness... More

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights back in September. Lovely lovely stuff. No fuss check-in/check-out. Clean and cosy room. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Zero pretentiousness. Full of life and character, just like the city itself. Breakfast is "OK", but I've never been a breakfast person anyway. The location is literally a few minutes walk from the... More

As other reviewers, perfect location for sightseeing in old town. Hotel was good, staff were excellent and the food was above average. Would recommend it for couples and small families. it also had spa facilities along with free WiFi, sauna and gym. Situation meant lots of restaurants to choose from and plentiful tourist shops. Watch out for dodgy taxis as... More

Was not very impressed with this hotel at all. We booked an early room because our flight landed early morning. When we got to the hotel the receptionist did not know of an early room request. In the end we was given a dingy small double room for a tired family of five! My daughter has a nut allergy and... More
