Amazing stay in room 802 for one night. All kind of facilities included. The only problem, people working in front of the hotel, they started at 7am. All the other things, related with the hotel perfect. Very proud of our choice. Large room with spa bathroom.

Me and my husband spend 5 days in this Hotel and the localization and service were perfect. It's very close to the more important attractions of Istanbul. In 10 min walking we were in the Sultanahmet Square. The service was great and the room was cozy and clean.

Very good location: 10-15 min to main attractions in Sultanahmet district, small local shops around, good eating points and at the same time it is quite place. Personal is nice, helpful and friendly. First we got room what was too tiny for three of... More

I have been this hotel with my friend and we arrived there after midnight. Mr.Erdal offered us delicious Turkish Coffee to make us relax. And they upgraded our room free of charge. Hotel location was very close to Sultanahmet square. Only 15 min by walking to tram station. All staff were really kind. My special thanks to Mr.Erdal and Mr.Yılmaz... More

We were booked here on our honeymoon last year and were shocked upon arrival. The honeymoon suite is 5 floors up with no lift, the room features were old and worn out and the bath had two temperatures, ice cold or burning hot. It is an uphill cobblestone walk to the attractions which is not good for people with back... More

The wooden floor has a lot of white spots. there is no carpet in... More

This is a small but very nice hotel. It's a 15 minute walk from the tram station but it is in a quiet neighborhood. We booked a small room but after check in we asked for a bigger one, and, as one was available, they gave as a bigger room with no extra charge. Breakfast could be improved because it's... More
