This is a great budget hotel, newly restored, in an excellent location with staff that couldn't be more helpful (especially Ali ). We stayed on the top floor, and our room was extremely spacious,clean, even had a balcony. Very good location, near historical places of Istanbul. Close to tram station. Clean rooms, basic but nice breakfast, good coffee.

We stayed at the hotel for 4 Nights and it was Great. The Staff is very friendly and the Rooms are clean and spacious. You are close to hagia sofia, the Blue mosque and the Harbour. To go out you can Either walk (25 min) or take a taxi to taksim (15 TL). We will definitely come back! Thank you
