It is near tram station & Sutanahmet is reachable walking. Very... More

Small hotel with wonderful breakfast. Attentive staff made us feel that whatever we needed would be attended to in short order. In the heart of the old city, you are unaware of the bustle as the hotel is just off the main street. The view of the Bosporus on the 4th floor was perfect and the walk to the main... More

Perfect location; near one major line of tram. But the hotel is situated in a fairly quiet neighbourhood. Good service. Rooms are comfortable and appropriately furnished. Beds are very comfortable. Bathrooms are well designed. One tiny problem was about the location of the electric plug for the computer in ou rroom.
