Location apart, this was a shocker. I can forgive rooms being shabby as long as they are clean and comfortable. They weren't. I stayed here at the end of a tour and the tour cmpany should be ashamed to put people up here.

Positive: Nice and friendly staff and convenient location. The rest: Unfortunately, rooms were unhygienic and breakfast was substandard. Although staff helped me change the room and gave a better quality room but even that was not properly cleaned (fungus under the table etc). Bathrooms are in appalling condition. With simimlar price better hotels can be found in Istanbul even im... More

I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions and will stay again and again. The hotel is basic but it is very clean, the staff are lovely and in a perfect location to explore Istanbul. The breakfast is a traditional turkish breakfast of bread, olives, cheese, boiled egg, jams and tea or coffee.

I traveled back to this hotel this year again as I enjoyed my stay there last time. It's cheap, clean, safe and close to all the major tourist attractions. The staff are excellent and really looked after me whilst I was there. They are all very nice people and so much fun! Great little place!

The hotel has a serious hygene problem. The bathrooms dont look like they have EVER been cleaned. After flushing the toilet the bathroom floor would be wet.... disgusting!. Pay a bit more more and stay in a proper hotel

I stayed 10 days in this hotel. It is very well located near the main historical site: The Blue mosque, the Hagia Sophia and a 10 minute walk to the Grand Bazaar. Contrary to some of the other post I had excellent service from the people at the desk. They were friendly and helpful. Sorry but if I'm traveling and... More
