Actually, I didn't have any expectation on this hotel because the price was fairly cheap. However, It located very near the blue mosque and many good reviews. The room was ok. It's a bit small but I can't complain. It was clean, high speed wifi, very cozy and warm. Especially, breakfast was fantastic. I don't know how they make a... More

Great little hotel. Great view of the Sea of Marmara. Nice English speaking front desk. Be sure to ask for an omelette at breakfast. Get a room on an upper floor for the best views. Really fun to watch the ships and the seagulls go by. Very close to the Blue Mosque and the Hippodrome.
