First of all, the location shown on Google map is wrong. A friend and I chose this hotel because we arrived Istanbul late by bus, however the hotel is not easily reachable from the bus station (otogar). After we arrived, they first gave us a used room which hadn't been cleaned. The staff gave us a hard time when we... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights before seeing other parts of Turkey and for a few nights after we had toured Turkey. The breakfast buffet was very good. The rooms were small but adequate. Service was not so good. Lots of street noise in this neighborhood. Good proximity to Ataturk Airport. Metro stop nearby for getting into the... More

Good breakfast but it would have been necessary write down what kind of food they serve. Not anyone is familiar with the turkish receipes. Very noisy because of the mosque nearby and because of the metro and traffic. The room was pretty clean. Smell of mold in the bathroom.

If I wasn't staying here because my flight got canceled and this is the crappy hotel my airlines put me up in, I would have left by now. Just straight up jerks at the front desk. For no reason whatsoever. I try really hard to be a pleasant and nice person, but they were rude, they interrupt, they are unhelpful,... More

The room is clean, and its not noisy eventhough my room was facing the street. The receptionist is friendly, and can speak English. Breakfast and dinner buffet is great, filled with Turkish food and desserts. Its 5-10 mins walk to Terrazidere train station, but this hotel itself is a bit far from the main attractions. It took me 40 mins... More

When u need nothing but the street noise, then this is the place. When u need help from the receptionist, then be ready to talk with local language and only say "no". When u take a shower, becareful with the hanger, cause it falls in ur feet instantly. When u leave this hotel, then u woll grateful.

Food was very good, breakfast was an open buffet with many dishes, unfortunately no fruits or fresh fruit drinks.
