The reason being: BEFORE making a booking I asked them if they accepted American Express card to which they clearly said yes. I even double checked with them and told them that we we had just come from another hotel because they did not accept AEX card. He assured me that everything was ok. There was no language barrier and... More

The hotel is in a great location. It's quiet and everything is close. Tram stop is close enough and can be toured on foot. Breakfast was excellent and varied. The most beautiful is the bread with sesame seeds. The staff is ready to help. The room was clean and tidy.

The hotel il situated in the best location, walking distance from all attractions and few steps from tram and ferry stop. The staff is nice and friendly. Price is unbeatable. Bad side: it is too dirty, but for you paid it can be passed off

Two friends and I stayed for 3 nights on a football trip. We weren't expecting to spend much time in the hotel so location and price drove our choice. €25 a night for a double room including breakfast is pretty good value, even if everything is pretty basic. But the beds were comfortable, the rooms were clean, and the shower... More

I spent two nights at the hotel in the middle of November. Decent hotel with good location. Rooms are very small but clean. All I needed just a place to sleep. Stuff is friendy and helpfull. And surprise - free Wi-Fi everywhere. In Marriott Istanbul I had to pay 25 USD per day!
