It is an excellent hotel with great service and beautiful backyard under the hill. Breakfasts are awesome. Close to the center of the city. Hotel staff are very co-operative and courteous. I will visit it again in Istanbul with family.

We had a lovely room overlooking a garden. Wonderful breakfast and people! Tolga was very helpful. The location could not have been better. Walkable to everything in the sultana met district. Rooftop observation deck allowed us to enjoy the water view of the city

Staffs are very helpful here, can offer any information you need. The guy named Apo will always try his best to help you. Breakfast is delicious, especially bread. Location is good, very near from blue mosque and other sight spots. Good choice in Istanbul.

Amazing location and wonderful people. They were extremely accomodative despite an error in the booking. I would be happy to stay with these guys if I get back to Istanbul! They made awesome arrangements even in the room to accommodate our 4 year old without any fuss! PS: Their apple tea is wonderful and they give it free! :)
