Sultanahmet in general is a great area to stay, just be aware that you will hear the prayers from the mosque early in the morning. The service... More

The location is... More

I literally just got off the phone with them, and... More

An excellent hotel near at the centre of town. You can visite places and monuments on foot. Very nice breakfast and very clean and quite. Easy access from airport through m1 metro line and t1 tram line.

This place is a lovely little hotel with all of the necessary amenities. Clean rooms, exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, located so close to all the necessary things to do and see in Istanbul. The greatest experience was upon my arrival into Istanbul - opening my doors with ocean views (marmara sea) at the blue Istanbul as the call to... More

I stayed 4 nights in this hotel.... More

Two nights stay in this great little hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful giving advice on local attractions based on time available. 5 minute steep downhill walk from Cemberlitas T1 Tram stop and within easy walking distance of the Blue Mosque and surrounding attractions with the Grand Bazarre in the opposite direction. Gelata Bridge for sunrise and Galata Tower... More
