Hotel is in a great location, staff friendly and professional. We were given two very good rooms (including a corner suite rather than a standard room, thanks for that). Breakfast was included, as was wifi, which is always welcome. Thanks for a great stay.

My wife and I stayed here in March of 2015. The rooms were warm and very clean. The location was excellent just a short walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and sultanhamet and tons more. Also a easy tram ride down to eminonu. The staff were vey attentive the minute we walked in the door. Great place to stay.... More

Excellent Hotel in the Sultanahmet district in Istanbul within walking distance of the most popular sites. Great view from balcony in our room. Very helpful staff. Good breakfast included. Fitness room. Free WiFi. The hotel also has a roof-top terrace with view that is open to everyone.

The rooms were nicely decorated and apart from perhaps the showers everything else appeared to have been renovated recently. Helpful staf and a familylike atmosphere. Terrace offering a good view of the city wasn't open for service but... More
