Very nice and friendly staff. Excellent location if you want to be close to some of the main attractions in Istanbul. The room was very neat and clean. I really felt welcome and at home during my stay. I'll definitely come back next time in Istanbul.

Hotel is nice and the location is just perfect, near the cornice side, Blue mosque just 800m by walk and hagia sofia , bazaar market also near, cafe and restaurant is just there. The staff is very friendly, room service is ok but the food is just average. Better to eat outside. THE PILLOW is amazingly nice and our room... More

The location of this hotel is amazing because it's 2 mins walk from Sultanahmet! However, the hotel itself is average, a bit pricy & does NOT allow you to have visitors in your room! So watch out for us! If you're of a younger age I'd say try a hotel in Taksim square!

We stayed here for about a week last August. The location is great for exploring Sultanahmet and for accessing the tram to get to other areas of Istanbul. They have a backdoor which you can leave and enter through (via a buzzer) that opens onto the small hill that leads you directly up to the Blue Masque and Aya Sofia.... More

My 2 brothers, my mom and I visited this good hotel in May of 2014. It is located perfectly: at the beautiful Bosporus shore, but within walking distance of the Blue Mosk, the Hagia Sofia, the Big Bazar and Topkapi Palace. Decent size, modern rooms, well equiped and with a tourist shuttle service to go just about anywhere where you... More

The hotel is located in a few minutes walking distance from Blue Mosque, Aya Sofya and Topkapi palace which are one of the most beautiful and iconic places in Istanbul.

With a breathtaking sea view and a 8min walk to the Blue Mosque this is the place to stay in Istanbul. I had a great time discovering the city, just by walking up the Hill and then descending to the Grand Bazaar. The Staff at the Hotel were very pleasant and made my stay feel very enjoyable.
