Friendly staff, very close to main Sultanahmet attractions. Rooms are small but it is OK if you only sleep at the hotel. Walls between rooms are thin and you can hear sounds and talk from neighbour rooms.

This is a great hotel with really decent family rooms in the Sultanamet area. We stayed in the family type rooms (two semi attached rooms with a common bathroom). Everything was small, but charming. Would recommend taking the hotel up on the transportation offer as we had some difficulty communicating the hotel address to the taxi driver when we arrived... More

This hotel is located within easy walking distance from many of the big attractions. Heaps of great restaurants in the area and 10 mins from the tram which travels to Galata bridge, the spice market and the ferries to cross the Bosphorus. If you're only in Istanbul for a couple of days the everything you would have time to do... More

We had a great stay here. Very comfortable and extremely well located. After I had left Istanbul I realised I had left a couple of items of clothing behind in the wardrobe. I emailed the hotel and they very kindly arranged postage to Australia. Would definitely stay here again and also recommend to others.

This was my last hotel after traveling for almost 3 weeks in Turkey. Front desk when I arrived was friendly, helpful and sincere about offering me anything I could need. I arrived pretty late, so took advantage of their airport transportation, which was excellent and used it to go back to the airport the next morning. They upgraded me to... More

Stayed at this wonderful hotel for 3 days at the end of October 2014. the staff are ultra efficient and knowledgeable about their city. The hotel itself is adjacent to most of the sights of the city and has a great view from the roof terrace. Highly recommended

This hotel is very close to the blue mosque and Hagia Sophia. There are plenty of restaurants close by and you can walk to all the main sites in the old city. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly. The main reasons I rated it low is I took my elderly parents to the hotel and I... More

The hotel is a decent hotel and it is in a good location. It is much quieter at night than at another hotel we stayed at in the area so you don't hear the early morning prayer call. (With the windows closed). The morning breakfast terrace was very nice and they always greet you with a big smile. They even... More
