This family run hotel is great, the staff treat you as though you are part of the family with all of them having been there a number of years, the location is as good as it gets in Istanbul, literally 100 metres from the main attractions. The rooms were spotless,and the shower great, breakfast each day was excellent, huge choice,... More

They were much better than expected. Everyone went out of their way to help us in many ways. Location was great, near many mosques. Would stay there again. The breakfast had a great selection of food.

Small, family owned, hotel which is ideally placed to visit most of the main attractions by foot. Hotel is cleaned, maintained and decorated to a very high standard but has a homely ambience. Staff are all friendly, willing and have a good command of English. The restaurant gives an excellent choice for buffet breakfast and lunch with tea or coffee... More

We checked in late in the evening and got a room overlooking the Topkapi Palace wall! The staff was courteous and very helpful. The rooms looked very well maintained and clean. It was a small but quaint room normal per european standards. Very close to the attractions,wifi, great view of the Marmara sea, good traditional breakfast and a really nice... More

The hotel is OK but be careful not to get ripped off when booking anything through reception. Make sure you know the prices of what they are booking for you. If booking transfers to the airport make sure you know that you will not be charged twice - once by the hotel and once by the taxi. Just be careful.... More

Perfect location (2 minutes from the main attractions in Sultanahmed), great attentive staff, 2 main assets of this family owned hotel. The staff exceeded my expectations starting at the reception and ending at the roof terasse with the breakfast service. I have to say I am very demanding, as I worked for 5* hotel, so I know how the service... More

Wonderfully located in the centre of the Sultanahmet district. All the big tourist places within very easy walk as is the tram to Galata bridge. Fantastic views from the terrace on the roof - the Hagia Sophia in one direction and the Bosphorus in the other. Friendly staff. Room (and bathroom) were on the small side but the bathroom was...

Small family hotel. Very nice staff that makes you feel like your presence really matters to them. Good breakfast on the roof terrace, with a nice view. Clean rooms, a bit small, but again the atmospheare and the people who works in the are very nice. It´s the last building before the historical area in Sulthanamet, witch means that if... More

I stayed at this hotel many years ago and went again this March. Much to my delight it was just as good as ever. It's in the most amazing position, overlooking Topkapi Palace walls, just round the corner from all the tourist restaurants and hotels but quiet and peaceful. Unlike many Istanbul hotels which have terraces that are not closed... More
