The rooms are too small and need renovation. The hotel location is excellent for shopping and is very convenient to reach taksim as it is close to Venecilar metro station. The breakfast is rich and on each floor you can find a cooler and ice. If you decided to visit this hotel try to get those rooms that are with... More

Located in the outskirts of the tourist part of the city, this hotel is nothing to write home about. However the basic things are there. The (small) room was clean, shower and appliances were in order and the staff smiling and helpful. Taner as well as Marve were always ready to help

The room was small, but very functionally laid out, and very clean, with a really great shower. Dinner in the hotel both nights was solid. I really appreciated the tourist information as well, with a chart of major attractions on the... More

This is a lovely cute and clean hotel. The staff were very polite and always smiling. The front desk was very helpful in describing areas of interest to visit and how to get to places within budget. Great breakfast as well!

A nice and clean hotel with a wonderful and helpfull staff, cheap prices, good breakfast and a very nice interior (especially the bathroom). Located next to a mosque that may wake you up at 6 AM, but you usually get use to it, and fall back to sleep. Short walk to Grand Bazar, Hagia Sophia etc. Reccomend it!
