As a small hotel you become a recognised person and get acknowledged by name. This a a basic three star (by Oz Standards) which means the rooms and facilities are basic but comfortable.- which...

+ The hotel is extremely close to Tram line T1 & also close to Tunel. + The hotel overlooks galata bridge. + A great breakfast with a good variety. + Very clean, comfortable, fresh rooms. + Nice helpful staff. - Maybe a little difficult to find at first (if you're on your own from the airport).

The hotel is excellent located in the city centre of Istanbul. 3mins walk to Galata Bridge and Karakoy peer (6lira to Kadikoy - Asian side of Istanbul). 10m away from the hotel towards the Tersane Caddesi on the left hand-side is the funicular Tunnel. You can reach T1 tram from Galata Bridge, which takes you quickly to Kabatas (from there... More

The hotel is perfectly situated for all the top attractions of Istanbul. Don't be put off by the road outside. It has all been dug up and you do rather wonder where you have come to! Once inside the welcome was warm. The rooms we had were very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was of high quality, and plenty of choice... More

Visited in July of 2014. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful and upgraded our room to give us a view of both the water and the old city. Very close to public transportation and also within walking distance to sites such as Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. Room was clean and air conditioning worked very well. Bathroom was large and...

Very friendly staff, very clean hotel. The best location that u can get 5minutes ti istiklal station and 1 minute to the bridge karakoy-eminonu. I absolutely recommend it to all. Wifi worked just fine. Breakfast a bit poor but ok.

We stayed here in May 2014 for 3 nights while exploring Istanbul for the first time. This was a great location to either walk or take public transportation to both the historic sites and the restaurant/bat district. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the roof deck was gorgeous. The music on the roof deck on Saturday night was amplified... More

Good location between the old and takssem Istanbul Little bit poor and unclean neighborhood. Great service and breakfast Very nice view from the restaurant on the roof Didn't like the idea that the breakfast is near the reception and not in the hotel restaurant on the roof
