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! :)

The room was small but functional with tea and coffee, the TV wasn't really working but you dont really need it, the wifi... More

The staff were very helpful with recommending where to go during our stay and helped us book tours etc. We would recommend this hotel, it was very good... More
