This hotel was very close to the tram stop Cemberlitas which is one stop away from the very touristy area, Sultanahmet. For the price it was amazingly clean, the showers had good water pressure and we never lacked hot water. There is also free Wifi :) The staff were really nice; even when my friends and I would come home... More

Cosy hotel at a great location.... right at the centre of Sultanahmet area. 2 mins walk from Cemberlitas tram station.

We stayed at this hotel 8 nights and I can score it as "well" or "very well". Convenient location (tramway stop - Cemberlitas), just 5-7 minutes on foot to the main attactions of Sultanahmet (Aya Sophia, Blue Mosque etc). Rooms was not too big but very clean (they changed towels and bed linen every day). There are little safe-box in... More
