First, Sofia, our host, was one of the nicest people I think I've ever met. She was just absolutely wonderful in meeting our every request and full of information about what we might do on our short stay. The location of the hotel allowed us to reach everything we wanted to see (the Blue Mosque, the cistern, the palace, Hagia... More

We stayed five nights, two nights in room 201 and three nights in the ground floor room. Firstly, Sofia, Dinar (?), and the other staff are marvelous. So warm and loving. We arrived very early after a 12 hour flight, and I was sick with a bad cold, and they took great care of me, offering tea and giving us... More

I made a reservation for 5 nights at this hotel and was very pleased by their service. The rooms are not very large, but I was only one person and spent most of my day outside exploring the city, so I didn't need much beyond sleep & showering. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, including the owner who gave... More

Overall, we had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. The hotel is located close to lots of attractions: the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, so it offers a perfect starting point for sight-seeing. It is wise to reserve a "standard room", since the "economy room" might get you into one very small room with a window showing dirty... More
