The position of the hotel is perfect if you want to see the Sultanahmet mosque (200 m from the hotel) and the Aya Sofia museum (less than 1km away). Some quaint small old-town restaurants are reachable from the hotel by foot, however stepping outside the Sultanahmet mosque's neighborhood even 200-300m, the area becomes dirty and busy, but still with nice...

Stayed for 4 nights recently. Great location, excellent staff. Rooms very small especially the bathroom so small you couldn't fully open the door.... It did prepare us however for the bathroom on the cruise ship we boarded in Istanbul. Pillows aren't the best and when we arrived no blanket on the bad just a sheet. All in all our stay... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and loved every minute! Local and in the center of the city. Wonderful food at the restaurant. Amazing staff. Upon check in I realised I had picked up someone else's bag at the airport. Staff helped me by calling the airport and advising me what I needed to do. I even received a round of... More

Spent two nights at this fantastic hotel. The location is absolutely amazing, the hotel cafe overlooks the Hippodrome (Sultanahmet Square) and the 'Walled Obelisk' situated in the southern part of the Hippodrome is just a few metres away. The majestic Blue mosque is only a short walk away. The hotel staff were really helpful and welcoming. In particular a member... More

Very well located to visit many historic sites of Istanbul. It's easily accessible by taxi and by tram, which is an advantage in Istanbul, good access to the rest of the town, simple and friendly service, good restaurant on the ground floor and beautiful breakfast room on the roof with a stunning view. The room with a street view was... More

Great hotel with location virtually next door to the Blue Mosque. Very handy for all the sights in and around Sultanahmet. Friendly and efficient staff, nice restaurants downstairs and rooftop. Breakfast not all that wonderful although honey direct from a honeycomb on the breakfast bar was lovely. Good views too!!

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.
