Our transport bus did not arrive at the appointed hour - the bellboy - Sammi - went above and beyond trying to sort out this problem and contacted the relevant company and reported back regularly with updates.

Hotel staff were friendly after sorting out a problem with our booking. Room basic but acceptable, clean but not outstanding, location for tourist attractions in Istanbul is very good and made seeing sites easy. Turkish bath was excellent end to the trip.

This hotel is located in the heart of the tourist district in the Sultanahmet area. The rooms are small but I think they all are in this area. There is lots of night life on this street so if you don't like noise at night ask for a room away from the street. The hotel staff was great especially Dorina... More

Wonderful position and like all the other guests we found the staff friendly and helpful. Would like to especially mention the porters who were particularly helpful and willing. Also the young head waiter in the terrace restaurant who was unfailingly polite and friendly. Wonderful position near to main attractions and surrounded by interesting restaurants. Only downside was the night receptionist.... More
