Hotel in the best part of the sultanahmet area. Some rooms have a view of the blue mosque. This is a beautiful sight, especially at night. It is located in a quiet alley (sokak). the staff is very friendly and attentive. hotel is laudable

I really suggest to anybody not to go in this place for a good journey in Istanbul.The city offers a lot of places more and more comfortable and nicer than this. They promised us a big room with a grateful wiev on the Blu mosque but they... More

I had a great experience staying here and wish I had more time! This hotel is conveniently placed by to the Haglia Sofia, the Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, and many other sites. For the sites that are further away, the metro is very near (about a 2-3 min walk). I had an excellent first impression of this hotel as the... More

Positives: 1. Room 501 (top floor) though small, has a nice sized bathroom and great views of Aya Sofya, Bhosporus and Zeynap Sultan Mosque. 2. Aya sofya is just a short walk, Gulhane Tram station is just a two minute walk, Grand Bazaar 15 minutes walking distance and in fact we walked from Eminonu to the hotel in less than... More

I had a brilliant stay here. The rooms are nicely designed and kept very clean. The location is fantastic. However, this hotel's greatest strength lies in it's staff. Atajan and Aziz (manager) did far more than necessary to ensure I had a good stay. Great guys and incredibly helpful. Will be taking my parents here next year!

We had a double room with a view on the second floor- it was beautifully furnished with a view of the Agia Sophia, although was... More
