We got a free hotel stay from Turkish airlines because of the length of our layover. This is not always the hotel you would get but we were sure glad it was this time. Although we did not get to use it for very long, it was a very nice hotel right in the heart of western Istanbul. There are... More

The hotel is in a peaceful street and within 15-minute walk from the old town, Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque and others. Rooms are small but decent and clean. Food was good and you had a lot to choose from. Staff was ok but it is pretty quiet place without husle and busle in the lobby.

I booked this hotel through Hotwire believing that I was booking a 4 star hotel and was very upset when I discovered that it has consistently 3 star reviews. I read terrible reviews about stale bread for breakfast, ripped bed sheets and unclean rooms, but was reassured by Hotwire that my stay would be clean and comfortable. Nope! My stay... More

The staff were fantastic, although our AC broke and it took days to get it fixed. The rooms were incredibly small, but that's normal for the old part of the city. I recommend staying in the Taksim area and taking a taxi to sight-see Sultanahmet during the day.

Just one night because I was sent there by Turkish airlines. Food very bad; breakfast just coffee, tea an d marmelade; bread of days before. Cleaness of the room is a question mark. Also taxi driver. What to say more?

The room was very dark. Beside that, the hotel location is very good, and hotel stuffs are so helpful and amiable. They welcome you with great hospitality. You can go around most important sights in old city on foot.

Stayed here and wish I had had other options (Turkish airlines staple for the overbooked flights by the looks of it). Can only say that this is NOT a 4 star hotel as far as I am concerned.

i have never been made to feel like such an unwelcome burden before. The staff is rude and seem to resent me asking questions. I'm a young man traveling alone and was made to feel like a beggar instead of a paying customer. There are far better hotels available. Keep looking.
