When we first arriving the hotel, were a little disappointed by the smaller room compare to the hotels we get used to in US. However, the hotel owner and staffs are so friendly and greeting to you every day when you coming in and going out, offering you help for any questions and needs, which make your feel very comfortable....

And it is perfectly fine as a nice place to stay in Istanbul. Clean comfortable room (not huge) -some with a Bosphorus view. Great location near Blue Mosque, old city, etc. Staff was... More
