The location of this hotel is perfect for accessing the Sultanahmet by foot. It is was a shame and a scam that this wasn't explained to us our first night there. We arrived around 7pm. Upon check in we asked where we could go for a short, 10-15 minute walk and find some nice place to eat. We were told... More

Clean rooms, helpful polite staff and fabulous location for site seers. There is a terrace area where you can eat or lounge on the couches watching the boats come in. I honestly do not believe i have ever felt more relaxed than when i was sitting on those couches with a book and a glass of wine at sunset watching... More

Located by the sea. Quiet, courteous service. Good to spend the night before boarding at morning. Breakfast starts of 7. You can't have it, if you boat departure is before 8. Great place for an evening stroll.

The selling point of this place is the location and the view. You get a view on the Marmara sea (but I think you need to specify that while booking, otherwise, you may get a view on the old, little streets of Sultanahmet which isn't nearly as charming as it sounds, but rather claustrophobia-inducing). The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and... More

Of course it was a'smart deal'... However it's really a great place to stay in Istanbul - a really spacious room, view on the Marmara sea, and -through the back door- you are in the middle of Sultanahmet, where you find the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the grand bazaar just a few steps away. We'll be back on our... More

The hotel is located just in front of Marmara Sea. There is a secure door on the back of the hotel which allows you to go to the Old Town (10 minutes walking). There are many restaurants close to the hotel (but i'd suggest to try restaurants in hotels, instead of those super touristic on the street). Rooms are spacious... More

Great location. Hotel faces the main street bordering the sea and we had an ocean view room. There is a secure back door which gives access to the old city (Sultanahmet area) and it is within walking distance, albeit uphill, of the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia. The room is comfortable, includes a safe. Staff is friendly and many speak... More

Great hotel. Very clean, friendly staff, very clean and well appointed rooms. It is right on the seafront and on my first day we could say dolphins from the breakfast room. I had sea view which was nice, but if you are a light sleeper be warned. A sea view means you will also be able to here the road... More

Right on the main road by the sea and walking distance from the old city. Huge rooms with all the accoutrements you expect of a hotel twice the price. Fantastic value, great staff and lovely restaurant.
