I had stayed in a hotel belonging to this chain before so I had some idea as to what to expect. The hotel was average in more or less all respects but no more than that. I had a standard single room, quite cramped, looking out on nothing but rooftop for an other parts of the hotel. TV fine though... More

We stayed here for 4 nights - very clean and comfortable rooms. Very easy walk to the Bazaar and about 20 minutes to the Blue Mosque. Lovely small pool and sun terrace, extra cost for whirlpool.

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights after a recommendation from my sister and a friend who had both stayed here previously. Getting there and first impression: The hotel was easy to get to from the airport on public transport and is a 1-2 minute (downhill walk) from the Grand bazaar tram station. The property is typical of a... More

My son and I were there on a holiday and this was the perfect hotel. It was centrally located and walking distance from all the famous historic landmarks. The rooftop terrace and the restaurant had a great view. Breakfast was good and had lots of options!

My husband Sam and I really enjoyed our 5 night stay at the hotel. Everyone there was very helpful, kind, and considerate especially Aydin Yidirim. He made our visit to Istanbul one of the best vacations we ever had and really went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable and memorable. I highly recommend this hotel!
