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

The location is really good, just a couple of minutes walking from S. Sophia. The rooms are kind of really small, but clean and everything works very well. The breakfast is good and with a certain choice of different thinks. The guys at the receptions are friendly and helpful. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Even thinner wall than any other hotels i've stayed. Definitely didn't worth. I could hear every voice and even the words from front door. Smallest room (though the rate was most expensive) among the hotels i stayed at Turkey. Breakfast and the location was nice.
