We booked this hotel via a travel agency. When we arrived the luxury room we'd booked was not available due to renovations and we were given one of their cheapest (and smallest) rooms, without much of an explanation or even an apology. At first, they promised us that the room we'd booked would be ready for us on the second... More

The hotel is right in the middle of the touristic area but in a way away from the crowd. The staff is polite and very helpful. The rooms are clean and neat, decorated in an old Turkish style. close to the historical area, I highly recommend the place, enjoy !!

At our first night we weren't that happy with our garden room (heating wasn't satisfying, problems in bathroom, bad wifi reception). We had a nice talk with cagdan who could manage to bring us to another room one stairs up. View to the Blue mosque, bigger room, better bathroom, better heating and working wifi reception. The breakfast was satisfying for... More

Right in old town, easy access to tourist attracons and public transportation but on quiet st; staffs cogdas and cihan are very nice. The whole hotel is like a museum, special decoration and good breakfast. Also, great value, especially during new year when other hotels raise prices significantly. Highly recommend!

Great hotel, nice staff and a perfect location in the old town close to all historical sites. We spent new year there and we highly recommend this hotel. We will definitely try to book again in our next visit to Istanbul.

The hotel is situaed in a very good position near to Topkapi, near to bus station. Rooms are clean in a typical ottoman house. Personal is kind I suggest the place and I will return here I hope. Breakfast is complete and served in a garden full of daily light. Everyone smiles in the same language and it is true

The most filthy discussing hotel we've ever seen, dead flies everywhere, dust, cobwebs, old and dirty sheets, we had 20 cm of space surrounding the bed, and that was it! there were still moldy leftovers in the mini-broken-fridge... the bed was - tree stacked mattresses piled up, the headboard was a plain piece of wood, and we overlooked some kind...

This should be 3 and a half really. Interesting hotel very centrally located in the Sultanahmet district so able to walk to all main sites. As others have mentioned the floorboards are extremely creaky making sleep very difficult at times if people come in late to the upstairs rooms. Breakfast was adequate. This hotel is filled with 'interesting' artefacts. There... More
