The rooms were indeed on good price for the area: very close to touristic attractions (Sofia, Blue Mosque, Cistern Basilica etc), but hotel itself is in a bad shape, old and unattractive. Even consider staying here for sleep only, beds are uncomfortable and shower cabin are chemistry tube size, an adult heavy fit in it. Whole room looks sad and... More

I reserved a family room and when I arrived with my friends they gave us instead 2 double rooms because the family room wasn't available. The rooms were just ok and the bathroom was a little dirty. The staff was really nice and helpful and overall the hotel was perfect for me and my friends because we had a low... More

We had very bad experience at that hotel, when we arrived the owner wanted us to pay for the whole stay which was planned to be 10 days, but after arguments we agreed to pay only for 4 nights. We discovered that the hotel was very expensive comparing to others around, also the breakfast was very bad they couldn't handle... More

When we arrived at the hotel they gave us two rooms (there were 4 of us) even though we asked for one family room. They said that this room was not available that night and that they will move us to it the next night. We arrived in Istanbul late, after travelling whole day by car, with two children and... More

We went to this hotel and stayed their one night. The room was decent for the price, the TV was a little small and it was noisy.. they also had children working at the front desk who spoke little english, but other than that it was fine. We decided to go for a trip to southern turkey for a few... More

This was probably the worst experience I have ever had with a hotel. The photos on the website look great, but they are very deceptive. The hotel is a low end budget hotel, which would be fine if it was advertised as such. But they mislead people by making it look much nicer than it really is, and they try... More

I ended up spending 3 nights here when my online agerncy confirmed booked hotel decided to ignore my booking when I arrived in Istanbul. For more on that see my reviews of Indo Hotel and Mitanni Hotel. Stuck without a room despite my booking confirmation form, I reluctantly accepted to spend the balance of my Istanbul time here. They wanted... More
