The hotel is best if you are in a budget vacation, it's not a luxurious place to stay but a good one to stay with as the manger is very accommodating And always tried to give a hand when ever we need something like a charger. He even book the bus for us going to gerome

I visited Istanbul in September and couldn't be more happier we decided to stay here :) The hotel is within walking distance of Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar which was a plus, but it felt like home.

Made the arrangements through booking.com. Was looking for an inexpensive place to stay. They offer breakfast in the morning on the roof top. Great views, good choices for breakfast. For the price I can't really complain. The staff was helpful and friendly. They arranged a taxi and also could help if you wanted to book a day trip. If you... More

Overall, hotel was very nice. My wife an I had good time there. Hotel staff were very polite, friendly and helpful in every way. Rooms were cleaned daily. Breakfast was so so, not bad at all, but a bit uniform. Location of hotel is good and safe and close to every major attraction in Istanbul. Price was more than affordable... More
