3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The basic room is very small. You can stay here max two days but not for a long vacation purpose. There us a rich breakfast and is placed out of traffic noise. I cannot put more than 3 stars because of minaret speakers placed very close to some rooms. Impossible to sleep at prayers recall time.

It seems that all the good reviews are fake and most likely written by the hotel manager. The staff are very helpful and they try their best to help however the hotel is in poor condition and not hygienic. Stay away.

Everything was perfect and very very clean. I was surprised that the cleaning staff clean my room everyday and organize my stuff since I am messy as most men :) The price is great and location is even better.

The reason i give 5 stars to this hotel is because there are no surprises: you get what you want, and maybe a bit more. Here's what you can expect: -2 minute walk to tram that'll take you to the main mosques (Sultanhamet stop) and the Bosphorus strait (Eminonu stop) near Galata Bridge -You can walk that distance, too, it's...

The hotel is close to the tram, metro and Marmaray, so whether you want to go to Sultan Ahmet, or to the Pier, or to the Airport, you will easily be able to do it through public transportation. Elevator is VERY slow, so I advice you to get a room in the bottom floors. Breakfast was varied which was nice.

Location: The hotel is located in a busy area with numerous shops and street sellers and it has in its proximity a metro station (with direct link to the airport) and tram station (to the Blue Mosque and Galata district). I don’t recommend taxi from the airport but the subway, even if there are 14-18 stations (if remember well), it... More

Excellent staff, delicious breakfast with great variety, clean rooms at a very good price. This hotel is conveniently located close to the shopping area, 300M from a metro/tram stop, and within 1-2km's easy walk to the historic attractions. Good WiFi connectivity, and although the room was small, it was efficient. Will definately stay there again.

As you can see in the picture, this hotel is narrow and straight up. The lift is small and the staff is helpful. Our room was comfortable and looked as if it had been recently remodeled. I was told that all the rooms are equally modern. The breakfast buffet was a great way for us to start our visit to... More

We were impressed by how well run this small hotel was & it's convenient location to the metro, trams, buses & walking distance to Grand Bazaar. The breakfasts were amazing with a large selection of local cheeses, meats, fruits, breads & even puddings & cakes! The rooms are a bit compact but the front rooms have views of the busy... More

The hotel is situated in a superb location, just minutes from Aksaray Metro station and opposite a tram stop. Around are many excellent eating places and high-end shopping, and you can reach everything (sight-seeing and shopping in other bargain-districts) perfectly from there. The rooms are small but very clean and tidy, and the mini-bar was all free at our stay,... More
