We had the delightful experience of staying at this hotel for 3 nights. Location could not have been better! Easy train direct from airport, and points w/i city. The view on bldg top (where a delightful breakfast is served & inc in stay) has you looking over Sultanahmet, Blue Mosque and water. It is also open at night until 10:30,... More

This hotel was perfect for the trip my friend and I went on. The hotel was clean and the staff was amazing! They always went out of their way for us and they were incredibly friendly. The hotel is located right on the corner across from the Blue Mosque and was a short walk to the main street and the... More

Mid range hotel with decent sized rooms, just like you would expect in any other main big city if you stay in a place with great location. The service was very good, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and you can't beat the location.

Fantastic location, right across from the Blue Mosque. The staff couldn't be more helpful and the rooms were spotless. The breakfast room on the top floor has an amazing view of the old city. Note - morning call to prayer is early and quite loud 😀

Really good hotel, with a lift, right on the Hippodrome, with an excellent restaurant, lovely rooftop room with views over the Blue Mosque, Haghia Sofia and the Bosphorus, and really friendly, helpful staff. Our room was big and very comfortable; it overlooked the Hippodrome, but wasn't noisy at all.

Hotel seemed pretty recently renovated. Room and especially the bathroom was very small but nice and clean. The location in the old town is amazing for tourist activities. Our taxi driver had trouble finding the hotel but it is basically at the southwest corner of the Hippodrome. Few minutes walk across the park to the Blue Mosque as well as... More

From the rooftop terrace with spectacular views of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia to the friendly helpful staff, this is a great small hotel. Our stay in Istanbul was made more special by this guesthouse. We particularly recommend Onur, a young man we met out the reception, who went out of his way to make our time there as... More

Hotel was very hard to find navigating the tricky streets of inner Istanbul. Great location though as you literally stepped out into the hippodrome and could throw a stone at the blue mosque(which of course you wouldn't, but you could). Parking was otopark across the road with the young lads providing efficient service. The reception staff spoke good English(which can... More

Spent 4 nights with friends and was not disappointed. The hotel organised return pick-up from the airport which was slick and saved a lot of hassle. The staff including Onur were helpful. As most of the other reviews said, the rooms are comfortable, and clean but small and basic but this is fine as the thing about this hotel is... More
