Although we started rocky as they rushed a few of us on our first morning breakfast to finish eating fast, we had a great experience. Close to the Blue Mosque and everything around it, we felt it was convenient. Rooms were great and the view fantastic. A pleasure to wake up to the Sea of Marmara every day. A little... More

A great hotel in a very convenient part of Istanbul. The rooms were very clean with complimentary toiletries.. I especially appreciated the large bottle of water in the room and little things like a few candy on my pillow at night. The location was near all the tourist attractions. The hotel was in a very safe area and many restaurants... More

From the moment we arrived the hotel staff made sure that we are in a comfortable zone. The standard rooms are a bit small, however super clean. If you book a room overseeing the... More

Perfect location as it is near by all the tourist attractions, very good view to the Bosporus, good selections in the breakfast, friendly staff and good service. Safe area, walking distance to many bars and restaurants, plenty of options to choose from when it comes to restaurants.

We stayed from 8/24/2014 - 8/28/2014. The Hotel staff was professional, extremely knowledgeable and polite. Our room was quaint and immaculate. The air conditioner was great as it was quite warm outside. The location of the hotel was wonderful and the city streets behind the hotel were charming with lots of restaurants and shops. The proximity to most of the... More

We were 3 girls travelling to Istanbul for the first time and the staff was extremely helpful, they booked all our tours and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Breakfast was healthy and great. Room was on the small side but I would... More

Sea view lovely. Staff excellent and English speaking. Helpful for a middle of the night small pharmacy trip. Surprisingly very quiet considering its closeness to some of the smaller shops and blue mosque. Excellent food for picky eaters. Good prices for dinner and drinks. Not one negative thing I can say on our three night stay. I do know for... More

First stayed two nights in a very small room overlooking the street with a view of the Blue Mosque. Came back a few days later to stay three days with a view of the Marmara Sea in a slightly larger room. The breakfast every day was phenomenal with fresh fruits and veggies, numerous cheeses, large variety of breads, four kinds... More
