I stayed at this hotel for a week with two other women friends. We were made extremely welcome and treated with real courtesy by the staff. Had a lovely time and thoroughly recommend the location. Roof terrace a special bonus. I will definitely go back!

Lovely staff, great food, lovely views from the roof terrace. Right between the Hagia Sophia and the blue mosque, the hotel is extremely well positioned for sight seeing- be it by tram, big bus or on the doorstep! friendly and welcoming, the staff very helpful - Kaddir especially!

This hotel is probably one of the best located in the city. Close to all major attractions, in fact only a few minutes walk to each of them. Tram very close and very reliable and convenient to board. Hotel decor and furniture needs upgrading. Wifi signal weak at many times. Breakfast so so. We had a very nice stay here.... More
