We were moved to the king Palace hotel, since the hotel we had reserved was under restoration. The manager, Oxana, received us warm-heartedly, and made us feel all through our stay at the hotel, that we were most welcome customers, almost like personal friends. The hotel is situated in quite a poor area, but very close to Sultan Ahmet tourist... More

Location is close to main attractions. Hotel owner and receptionist Nazif were very hospitable and receive you with smile. Breakfast was fine but with less variety. overall good but a bit expensive hotel probably due to location.

Quaint and characterful, this small hotel is wonderfully situated in a quiet street within very easy walking distance of everything you would want to see in the old quarter. It's a homely budget hotel, with friendly and helpful staff and good value for money. Check out the wonderful open air food market just uphill! We had a medical emergency late... More

It is an excellent hotel for "budget travelers"........clean and safe, with a friendly and helpful staff.......in a great location......and with a very good price for any hotel in Istanbul. A very nice breakfast is included in the price.......and the breakfast room gives a wonderful view of "Little Ayasofya Mosque",... More

We booked this hotel from booking.com and were not so sure what to expect. Now I can tell that it turned out to be a good choice! The hotel is located in a quiet slightly rundown neighbourhood near little Ayasofia and the sea. Beware of climbing up-and downhill a lot as all the main tourist attraction are uphill from the...
