This hotel was a gem. Not too expensive, but still very close to the Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia and many other tourist areas. The main plus points are the location and there are some really nice views that you can get from the terrace rooftop. Pros - - Location! Very close to major tourist attractions, shopping and food.

Had very good breakfast at roof terrace with view of Blue Mosque on one side, other side view of Marmara Sea. Great! Our room was with view on the sea, clean and we slept very well... More

Small hotel in excellent old city location, within 10-15 minute walk from all major sights – Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palase. Very clean (I couldn’t get over just how nice the hallways smelled at all times!) and my room was very charming with lovely décor and a comfortable bed. The staff at this hotel is fantastic.

My parents and I stayed in a triple room for 4 nights. Room was very small but it faced the Marmara sea and the view's beautiful! Being an Ottoman style building (and so are the other buildings around the area), it has no lift. The highest floor (level 6) is the terrace where guests have complimentary breakfast with the beautiful... More

This hotel was good quality for the budget. It is in a very convenient location in the old city - close to the very popular tourist sites (Sofia Aya, the Cistern, Blue Mosque etc.) Our first room's blowdryer and phone did not work so they moved us to another room. The next room's bathroom did not have a door handle.... More

We spent 2 nights at this nice littel hotel and found the staff very friendly and helpful. If you have the possibility to book a room with sea-view it will be worth it. On the top floor there is a terrace with breakfast-room which gives you nice views to Sultan Ahmed and Blue Mosque as well as the Marmara Sea... More

Not much of a walk to the main attractions of Istanbul-there are nice tradional type of shops on the way to keep your eyes inspired. Good thing I like cats-they are everywhere! The rooms are comfortable but small- who cares-you only want to be there to sleep anyway. Legs ache to reach the balcony (steps) for breakfast- However, once on... More
