We ended up here after our original hotel gave our room away. We ended up much better off. Building has been modernised. Room was quite large. The view from the terrace was amazing and there was plenty to eat at breakfast. It is very close to Blue Mosque, about 10-15 minute walk, but it is quite a steep hill to... More

Additionally; even it happened, he should have still kept the room because we arrived for check-in at 5pm which... More

Mehmet the owner was very helpful despite the language barrier. As a general rule while in Istanbul it's better to prepare yourself... More

I think there's a spread in reviews for this hotel bc it depends on what you compare it to. Our room (standard) was clean, the shower was great, there's a safe inside the room and plenty of closet space for longer stays and slippers! The front desk staff was okay (limited in english) and the breakfast was okay (in comparison... More

Hotel has good location, only 5 minutes walking to Sultanahmet square. Room was clean, large enough and air condition worked properly. They have a very nice terrace which offers great views. Value for money was perfect my stay. Recommended.
