In a central location near most sights, this small hotel in an old building offers decent rooms at reasonable rates. Rooms are small and could do with some refurbishing. Nothing fancy but will do if you are on a budget.

Location of hotel is extremelly close to main turist attractions in Sultanahmet. We have met very friendly staff in hotel ( specially reception lady was nice :) ) , our room on the groung floor was clean enough. They clean room everyday. We were satified with breakfast and service. Pity was two rain days.

Very friendly receptionists and wait staff, room comfortable enough. Spent a whole week here. Terrace with great view not open till April, a disappointment. Also no exciting breakfast items, so didn't bother. Turkish coffee available.

We were coming from long working hours in the Far East, and facing a long day's flight to Istanbul, so we wanted to be close to the historic section of Old Town, with the ease of walking to a large number of sites, but also have someplace...

Istanbul is a great city and this hotel is in an almost unbeatable location to explore it from. Unfortunately there are some points that let it down slightly. The good parts first: we were given a reasonably large room and it's pretty comfortable. Breakfast was included and there's a decent selection in a pleasant room. The location is the real... More
