We had a group of 10 stay for 9 nights and it was just what we needed. It's off the beaten path of traffic for noise level, but it's still close to walk to restaurants and all the major attractions. The staff is what really takes this hotel to the next level. As there are not too many rooms, they... More

We stayed there for 4 nights. The biggest advantage of staying in this hotel is that it's very close to all major attractions of historical importance. However there are other hotels in the same vicinity as well. The hotel do not have a proper porche area. If you are old it's difficult to to lift your luggage and to enter... More

Positives: Excellent location. Just 2min from Haghia Sophia by walk. All highlights in walking distance. Stuff was nice. Room seemed to be renovated recently. The breakfast was ok but I would prefer a larger variety because after few days it was really boring to eat the same stuff. Negatives: Walls are made of paper, we could hear every single word...

The staff is very kind and helpfull, this and the good location close to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia are probably the best things. Also breakfast, which is included, is more than correct and they keep refilling food until breakfast time finished, but then, a lady picks everything up at light speed. Our room was tiny but clean.

We booked three nights and stayed nine. Murat, the manager, not only maximised our comfort and convenience, he also assisted with flight complications and airport shuttles. The breakfast buffet served by Gulsen is sumptuous and she always greets you with a smile. Rooms are clean and comfortable, wifi is excellent and position is perfect. Highly recommended, Tony Christy, Australia, March... More
