The location is amazing, rooms are very good, and the host BOB helped us with all the tips for sightseeing and stuff. I would highly recommend staying at here! We had an awesome time at Istambul and the setup of the terrace is just lovely.

Helpful, friendly, clean and great value for money. Location excellent for all major sights - a few minutes walking distance. Management was very flexible in meeting particular requirements - so do contact them direct to enquire whether they can meet your needs.

Great location, walking distance from Hagia Sophia, Topkapi, Blue Mosque, and the Grand and Spice Bizaars plus other sites, and one street away from a strip of great restaurants and bars. Simple hotel, but had everything you need - A/C, shower, etc. Breakfast was included, although not a great breakfast. Proprietor was very friendly and helpful. Skip the expensive hotels... More
