For me, the acute problem is the Internet Wi-Fi which you can hardly find in the hotel. I do not understand why the hotel management do not invest some... More

Stayed at this hotel from 1/6/14 till 3/6/14. Location very very average. Very narrow lanes lead to hotel so bus drops on main road from where we have to lug the luggage over cobbled road. We had senior citizens in our group so imagine their plight especially on a wet day. The lifts are pathetically small and it takes ages... More

The staff is usually very helpful All the staff members i met were very friendly and helpful.: although the English is not great and you will be more likely to find whoever you are trying to speak to being more at ease with Russian (which most of the guests seem to be) than English....

I stayed in this 'hotel' in the first week of May, 2014. Unfriendly, unhelpful staff. Always looking to rip you off. Provided no information about sightseeing. Only wanted to sell tours which they would get a cut out off. A/c was horrible. They would keep switching it on or off themselves to save money. Had to complain numerous times. Asked... More

We knew from the photos and reviews what to expect, so if you are after a location and overall atmosphere to give you a taste of Istanbul, this hotel would be a good choice. Starting with the lobby and all common spaces, you are offered a pretty accurate image of Turkish decorations and architectural details-not bad, especially the lighting fixtures.... More
