The hotel is in a great location both for the historical sites and for a variety of cafes, bars and restaurants. The hotel is attractive and well maintained but by far its best feature is the friendliness, helpfulness and attentiveness of the staff who were available to provide an excellent service without being overbearing. We were very pleasantly surprised that... More

The Reception Staff were helpful and able to assist us with taxi's, directions and information on the local transportation. The Breakfast Room was lovely... More

Lovely hotel in a wonderful location - just a short way from the Blue Mosque and other important sites. The hotel has some original character. There is a lovely courtyard to enjoy the excellent buffet breakfast in. Our room was down a lot of stairs, rather small and at the very back. It also had the smallest shower cubicle door... More

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for your nice review about our hotel. Let me bring you about your shower. I wish we could give you some other room (with bathtub or bigger shower) but it is very difficult in the high season when we are fully booked. And by the way the train is out of service since a...

We stayed for 5 nights as part of a very well priced BA package. The staff were excellent and this is a really well placed hotel to explore the city from. We travelled easily from Ataturk Airport to the hotel using Metro and Tram with the excellent Istanbulkart card in about 50 minutes at busy times. The hotel is wonderfully... More

Lovely small hotel, great room, helpful staff. You can walk to all the historic sights, also its only a 15 min walk down to the Galata bridge. Good restaurants nearby. All you want from a four night break.

4 night stay booked under BA package. The location is very central and tucked in the peaceful corner. Lots of restaurants around and just minutes away from Blue Mosques, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi. Small but clean room with good air conditioning. Cooked breakfast is limited but adequate standard choices. I have to agree with Tim C about the customer service... More

Really impressed with this hotel. So reasonably priced, we couldn't believe how centrally located it was, just a short walk from Blue Mosque & Hagia Sophia. Rooms were clean, quiet and had air con. Breakfast simple but good. We stayed 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed.
