Okay so where do I start? This hotel has some good things about it but a lot of bad things about it too. The hotel is located in a very narrow street and is extremely difficult to get to. We had a baby with us so we hired a car but it took us three hours to find this place.... More

We stayed at this beautifull and friendly hotel with our five month old baby and we asked for a baby bed. Instead we got a room with a double and a single bed. This left little room for us, as the room was tiny. But the restaurant at the roof was very convenient for us and the view from the... More

The location is convenient--1 minute waking to the funicular up to istiklal and 2 minutes from the tram to sultanahmet. Unfortunately, that is the best i can say. The breakfast was bare bones, and they were woefully short on seats for guests, making strangers sit together. The manager or owner was occupying a full table himself but was reluctant to... More

We stayed here two days in August 2014 on the recommendation of our travel agent. It is a boutique hotel in the Galata Area of Istanbul. 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...
