This hotel has a brilliant location just a short walk from Galata Tower, the Tunnel & also Galata bridge. It has small but comfortable rooms which we found great. The only complaint we have is that some of the linen had a few small holes in it, but everything else was completely fine! Make sure you head up to the... More

This hotel is very conveniently located and has kind staff who make you feel very welcome as their visitor. Breakfast is variated and very good of taste. best part of the hotel is the restaurant on the top floor. this had good food, nice staff and an amazing view on Istanbul!

Great place to stay. Very nice and friendly staff. Worth a note, parking can be little difficult but the staff are at hand to help shift cars in the morning and I'm the evening. Also worth a note, if you are travelling, little difficult to find, must ask some locals.

We were pleasantly surprised with the room. Nice size, and looked as though it was newly renovated. The roof terrace bar was great for evening drinks before or after dinner. The breakfast was good to get you started for the day. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Location was fantastic. Would definitely stay here again.

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...
