Stayed here a few nights when we first landed in Istanbul. Note there are two buildings. We stayed at the newer one on the top floor about a 5 min walk from other building. Windows that open and facing the ocean and Blue Mosque off in distance. Nice, new, clean with great balcony on the roof. They treated our 5... More

This is not a very expensive hotel, nor should it be. We were four friends visiting Istanbul together. For this purpose there was nothing wrong with the room. The room itself smelled a bit and was very damp, but you could not keep the windows open unless you were in the room yourself. You had to be on the lookout... More

When I came to the hotel at the late evening on March 7th, the manager said that there is no free rooms in that hotel (regardless of the confirmation 3 month before), but he will provide a room in another hotel nearby. What we've seen there was just an awful room without any heating, hot water and even without clean... More

I went to Istanbul with my family-my husband and daughter. I cannot express through what nightmare we had to go. The room has nothing to do with the photos you have here. It smelled badly, very high humidity. The bathroom - a total disaster. There was dirt everywhere. In the bed i found hair. The floor was not clean as... More

Hi, This was my first hotel during my tour along the Silk road, but this was a hotel where there was no hook for towels, no chairs and only one lamp in the celing. It was also difficult to close the door because the floor raised after we had used the shower.

Horrible management, incompetent staff, dirty rooms, broken toilet, dirty laundry, terrible breakfast and the intolerance of the guests. As far as Istanbul was perfect, so do not want to go back to the hotel in the evening.

The only positive about this place is its outstanding location. Women must avoid it regardless. The owner of this place Ahmad initially appeared to be quite friendly. There were some initial hiccups which were addressed after I took a strong stance. Specifically, the hotel advertises the availability of Wi-Fi connection in the rooms. I was given a room at the...

The owner of this hotel deserves five stars: he is kind, helpful and always ready to answer your questions. The rooms, though, are not great despite their excellent location. The price is a bit high for the quality but I imagine you are paying for location (all the sights are within walking distance). We stayed in the second Ast hotel... More
