This hotel has a terrace on the top floor with a view of the magnificent Hagia Sophia. The location is excellent as the hotel is walking distance from all the main attractions in Sultanahmet and fairly close to the tram stop too. Breakfast was good too and the staff very friendly.

We were very pleased with our stay in this comfortable and friendly hotel. Quiet street and close proximity to Haya Sophia, Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar. Boutique hotel, not fancy but charming. Extremely helpful staff, delicious breakfast and free wifi. Good sized room, clean.

We chose this hotel in the area of Sultanahmet in Instanbul for its location. The location is very nice, with a view on both Ayasofia and Blue mosques. The rooms are large enough, an comfortable. Breakfast is great (continental)

Amazing location, very nice staff, best breakfast, wonderful, warm and relaxing interior design. I’ve been there for four nights this year and for three nights last year, and I’d return there any time.

My father (90 years) and I had a 6 night stay and found its location was fantastic, down a small enough side street that it was quiet but close enough that all the delights of Sultanahmet were an easy walk. Rooms were clean and spacious for Sultanahmet, hot water plentiful and had great pressure, service was well above par. The... More

Fantastic location, walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Topkapi, Hagia Sophia, Grand Bazaar. Close to tramline for travel to Taksim using the funicular. Great staff, especially Ibrahim, the bellboy. We stayed for two nights after a cruise, then two nights away to Cappadocia, then two more nights at Celal Sultan. Our first room was accessed via a spiral staircase, but... More

I had mixed feelings when I was reading the various reviews about this hotel. I am glad I trusted the good reviews as my experience was only positive. I booked this hotel for me and my parents for a short holiday and stayed there for about 5 days. I was kindly upgraded to a better room, upon a request, than... More

This is a very conveniently located hotel in the old city area of Istanbul. Staff are welcoming and helpful. Rooms are small but adequately appointed for a mid price range hotel in an expensive city. Breakfast is generous. Dinner menu in the top floor Terrace Restaurant is limited, but the view is fabulous!
