The owner also provides you with a transfer if you need it. The hotel is located very close to the general sightseeings of the old part of the city. Here I made a proposal to my girl... More

We mentioned we were on our honeymoon and our room had a rose petal bath, candles, wine and chocolates. It's a gorgeous room with a super comfortable bed. The breakfast was also really special with home... More

Do yourself a favour and take a look at the pictures of this place. It is a fine little boutique hotel. Great rooms, location and breakfast. WARNING: for those trying to find it using google maps - some idiot has labeled a location half a mile away and down a warren of streets as Villa Hagia Sophia. The only reason... More

The location is excellent as well just in a few minutes at the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and much more. Istanbul was since a long time on my wish list,... More

great... Room and breakfast were great, hosts as well, location close but not too close to the center, small store across the street, restaurants and bars around the corner, information up the street... Comfortable, cosy and peaceful. Could not make payment with Visa Electron online.
