When we stayed it was still being restored but was nice enough. AC in all the rooms. We booked to stay at this place during ramadan for a week, with breakfast included, and... More

We were in Istanbul from 24/07/15 - 30/07/15. We travel often to different cities. When we arrived we were shown to our rooms straight away. The hotel is in a great location everything is close by. The surrounding area was lively and loud which I liked. We stayed on the first floor in rooms 106/107, two double bedrooms.The hotel rooms... More

Room 105 was great with great views of the hustle and bustle of Kumkapi however if windows were... More

The rooms are very small, and the bathroom (which had hair all over the floor when we arrived) was also very small. I couldn't even sit on the toilet straight as the shower was so close in front of it. The... More

Nesim greeted us with a great smile and proceeded to work out an itinerary that would suit us as first time visitors. As we like to visit places of interest Nesim booked us with She Tours. Our room 107 on the first floor was small but clean and I was delighted to see there was a pillow menu. I need... More
