It's hard to find at first time. Very close to Galata tower and bridge - plus. Silent at night, noise at early mornings. Staff hardly speaks English but very nice and friendly. good cost/quality ratio.

I don't know how somebody can say that this place is recently renovated. The carpets are terrible, dirty and the bathrooms were not clean . It was supposed to be a smoke free hotel but our experience was the opposite. Location was fine but to top it all off the manager Esa processed the credit card twice and when we... More
