We stayed here for 5 nights a couple of weeks back and really enjoyed the experience. We were surprisingly upgraded to a Junior suite which had a lovely balcony and the view of Blue Mosque on one side and the Bosphorous on the other. It was truly amazing. The room was very spacious and nice. Only reason I have not... More

Great location, great room, friendly and helpful staff... No downsides to mention. The safe box stopped working with our passports inside and they quikly fixed the problem. We liked the breakfast too. Great experience overall. Our three kids loved the hotel. Jasmine and the girl from Italy (Lucile??) gave us great tips to move around Istanbul.

The biggest highlight of staying here is the breakfast spread. The staff who prepares the spread definitely take pride in it. Definitely clean and great location. Apart from all this, i guess its all regular as there is a lot of hotels to choose from in sultanahmet. The biggest downside is the noise, if you sleep after 11pm then its... More

I enjoyed a one night stay as I roam around Istanbul for the first few months of 2015. It was a competitive priced hotel in the heart of Sutanahmet. The rooms were clean, a bit dated, but quite servicable. I was given an amazing sea view by the very cheerful front desk and the rest of the staff were very... More

We booked and paid for this hotel via Hotels.com but were forced to pay again upon leaving in a rush for the airport. We reported the double charge immediately and were told we'd be refunded in 3 days. Despite numerous calls and repeated written confirmations that we'd get the money back, it's been over a month and we've yet to... More

Excellent hotel, perfect location - walking distance to some of the most important attractions and the Mosques, and also in a street full of restaurants; mostly friendly staff, and a lot of things to do in the hotel. They have many massage packages, sauna, Turkish bath, and stuff like that; too bad I didn't have the chance to take any... More

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Close to all tourist sites. Extremely helpful staff. Excellent breakfast choice. Free internet. Will definitely stay here again. Was caught in the snow storm of Istanbul and the staff went out of their way to get me the shuttle bus at an earlier time.
