We have just returned from a week long stay at this hotel. It was clean, very conveniently located to the main attractions of Istanbul and it was equipped with a splendid rooftop restaurant. The pool, hamam and sauna usage was included in the hotel deal and was well utilised by my family. The staff were polite, helpful and reliable. I... More

This hotel was excellent. It is conveniently located a short walk from Sultanhamet, Hagia Sofia, Spice Bazaar, Grand Bazaar, and right on the tram line. The rooms were immaculate and clean. The absolute best part though was the rooftop restaurant. The food and service were perfect. Sitting on the roof as the sun set was an unforgettable experience.

Great hotel for business & tourism travels. Rooftop terrace is my favourite place. It's clean and cosy, with lovely design detailing. However, we had a tiny problem with the window opening, which was partially fixed by staff member. Unfortunately, due to business stay we didn't have time to visit spa & relaxation areas.

Good location in that its only a 1 minute walk to the tram stops and 30tl gets you anywhere, which is good after a days sightseeing to get back without walking! 5-10 mins to Grad Bazaar, 20 mins to Blue Mosque etc. Reception staff friendly and helpful although the map was twice the price than the local shop!

Firstly the good points. Great location, the tram stop is just a few steps away from the hotel, with regular services running until late both into and out of the City. The Grand Bazaar is a short (10 or so minutes) walk away, as is the Sultanahmet area - for many tourist attractions. Our room was over looking the side... More

Very traffic around the hotel (but everywhere in Istanbul you will find that situation!). Closing the windows, we slept very comfortably. Not so far from Grand Bazar, 5' by foot, 15' far from Sultanameth. We have found clean services, rooms and furnitures Very tasty breakfast in the beautiful terrace. All the staff is very kindly and professional but not apathetic.... More
