Good breakfast and a restaurant on 7 floor with a nice view of Halic and old town. There are two lifts in the hotel, one very old and classic and... More

Arriving at the lobby they were nice to give us the room even we were too early for the check in (8 am). We showed them the reservation and they... More

My friend & I stayed for 4 nights from 20 March 2014 & I can say that from the start it was a great pleasure. I've been to Istanbul many times, but this was, by far,the best hotel. We had a corner suite room on the 5th floor & it was brilliant. My short review would not be complete if... More

This hotel is stunning. Old school style. From it's ancient lift to staircase. It is very close to everything, restaurants, tram, funicular etc. But - it's very location in an upcoming trendy area is the problem. The people drink & party all night and are rowdy in the streets in the early hours. There were 2 guys, 1 had a... More

I have never before had a holiday ruined by my choice of hotel, that is until now. The hotel is well located for shopping and site seeing. There is a great number of restaurants within a 5 minute walk. Unfortunately there is also a night club next door. I read all the reviews of this hotel before booking and road... More

Worked very well, great. The Location of the hotel is... More
