We stayed here for a long weekend in August and had a very pleasant stay. The hotel is on a fairly peaceful street a few minute walk from a street of restaurants, bars and minimarkets. Its also about a 10 minute walk from Sultanahmet Tram station and several of the main tourist sites of Istanbul. Rooms were a fair size... More

Friendly hotel decorated in traditional style with superb location in Sultanahment district within minutes of major must-see attractions like the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Aghia Sophia, and the Basilisk Cistern. Good breakfast but some of the bedrooms at the back of the hotel are quite small and are close to the railway line (which thankfully was non-operational when we stayed... More

Hotel is in great location in walking distance to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. There were many shops/restaurants in walking distance to the hotel; however, to get to Taksim square or to other areas was a far commute; could take hours depending upon the traffic (which is horrendous). The areas itself is quiet without much traffic or noise, due... More
