The hotel is just in front of the Blue Mosque; beautiful location with a nice view from the roof top terrace. We spent the New Years holidays and we loved it. The place is clean, the rooms are comfy, not too big and not too small. They have a breakfast buffet which is a mix of sweat and sour food... More

A great location 80 meters from the Blue Mosque, in fact there is a great view of the mosque from the hotel restaurant. The food is reasonable, the rooms are nice & the staff are very helpful. I would certainly recommend this nice friendly hotel for great value and a perfect location.

We had high expectations for this hotel and it didn't disappoint. On the contrary, it exceeded our expectations. Great location, great staff, awesome room. Having breakfast every day on the highest floor with beautiful view was really something. And chanting from a nearby Blue Mosque was a great contribution to the whole Istanbul experience. Really, the best hotel a traveler... More

It's really a good hotel with very helpful staff. Specially Mr. Onur was very helpful and gentle. He welcomed us with tea and check in was quick. We stayed for one night and we had to leave our baggage so we can go around sultanahmet area. He helped us in keeping it even after we checked out. Room was clean... More

Good day. My partner and I stayed here for 9 nights in January. We arrived from Canada and were quickly checked in. The location was awesome - so close to everything with lots of great restaurants nearby. The staff were very friendly and the buffet breakfast plentiful. I am a bit of a picky eater but my partner was able... More

The hotel is an ideal combination of stunning location (right by the Blue Mosque), impeccable service, unique comfort, stylish interior and cosy homely atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and courteous, and make sure you get everything you wish for. The rooms are cleaned every day and the food is so fresh and delicious, that leaves you purring with pleasure.... More
