The location was ideal within walking distance to the tram station. The rooms were spacious, clean and had everything you needed. Good wifi too. Staff was very helpful and... More

Perfectly located for visiting the main attractions on foot, the hotel is sometimes difficult to get to by taxi because of the traffic. A shuttle bus runs from the airport and stops at various hotels. The service is excellent. we were unaware of this but were approached at the airport and found our way onto the bus. The staff couldn't... More

Breakfast, Turkish style, but plenty of bread (... More

The view on the sea is unbeatable! At least from level 4 on, so book a room accordingly! I can also recommend: in the morning, ask for a tray, fetch your... More

Hotel's position is great, near Grand bazaar. From terrace on the room is great view. Good restaurants are close to hotel. Staff is very friendly. Room we got was really small but really clean. Don't expect miracles here, but place is nice and peaceful.

Hotel and room are average, but staff was really friendly and helpful in all situations We mainly chose the hotel to get something close to Grand Bazar, and it was perfectly located within walking range of Bazar, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and the Basilica Cistern. Reception desk actually... More

First, hotel's needs a huge renovation. Even the room door was in awful condition. Second, if you need a hot water you should wait for 20-30 minutes. Third, room is really cold. It was not clean, the bedding, the floor, bathroom was'nt look like freshly cleaned
