The rooms were clean but small. The property is charming and has a turkish bath and a very nice indoor pool. Their breakfast is very good and included in the room rate. At walking distance from main attractions (cobblestones and steep streets).

We booked this hotel on the back of it's 4 star hotel rating and it's high rating on trip advisor. However, upon arrival it was clear that the hotel was closer to a 2 star hotel and that it's trip advisor rating was very much exaggerated. Firstly, the pictures shown both on this website and on the hotel website bear... More

I stayed here on my recent trip to Istanbul. I chose this hotel because I could use air miles to cover most of my stay. I was a little confused by the area when I first arrived. It is a little off the main tourist path but that can also be a good thing. My only caution is that if... More

The food was delicious there - lots of variety for breakfast and we had lunch and dinner there which was also very good. The rooms were clean and modern although the wifi was very hit and miss. Even when it did work it was slow. Walking from the hotel to the main area where the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia... More

One of the best hotels I have ever checked in. The employees are extremely friendly and always looking forward to helping. I would like to mention Mesut, who was a great person in all standards, helped us in many things and was a very good source to recommend for us where to go, plus giving us tips and advices. Arzu...

We stayed there for 4 nights and have absolutely nothing bad to say about the hotel. The pool area was a joke, though: only one little sauna and a tiny swimming pool with really cold water. The pictures were a bit different. Breakfast was really good and diverse. Staff was helpful and friendly. Our room was spacious enough and clean.... More

Lovely hotel in good location. Easy walking distance to main attractions and if you are not feeling too energetic then only £6/7 to Galetta bridge and the Baltic coast. The sun roof was lovely but does overlook a football pitch so not too romantic and peaceful at night. The pool was small but pleasant to drop into after a sunbathing... More
