Stayed with family in early August. Set on a side street with no traffic and plenty of restaurants it is just a short walk to Haggia Sofia and the Blue Mosque. The staff were exceptionally helpful and our rooms were clean and quiet. The only slight downside is that the rooms are on the small side.

This hotel locates very near to tram station and it's very convenient to move to other places. It is also possible to walk to many famous places. People are very nice and always try to help their clients. Breakfast is good and rooms are clean.
