We booked this hotel directly with the owner and was very impressed with the price and the service. Although we are quite au fait with turkish lifestyle, the reception staff were very helpful in recommending local attractions, tours (which we don't tend to go on) without being pushy, and local restaurants. The hotel itself is situated literally 50 yards from... More

Location: perfectly located within walking distance to major attractions including but not limited to Sultanahmet Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern and Grand Bazaar. The hotel is located almost next to Topkapi Palace. The area is safe at nights. Customer service: the staff were very helpful. Rooms: I think the size of the rooms were good. There aren't much to complain... More

We have stayed there for 8 nights in July 2014, we have booked this hotel looking at TripAdvisor reviews and found it up to our expectations. Although the room was a bit tiny, but the quality of service the team delivered was spectacular. Room was clean, and people were very friendly and helpful. They tried to attend to our requests...

This was our first stop on a 5 week Mediterranean tour and what a way to ease into our holiday. They organised a hotel transfer, which was reasonably priced, from the airport. Be mindful that it's a long dive into the old town. We were apprenshive about what to expect, but the service and rooms are fantastic. The highlight is... More

We happened onto this hotel restaurant on our way to Tokapi Palace. The rooftop deck was amazing exceeded only by the food. The service was excellent. The appetizers were wonderful. I usually avoid restaurants too near the tourist sites but this one was fantastic!

This is a basic but good hotel. The location is just perfect to reach all turist attractions, rooms are simple but ckean, no facilities but really you don't go to Istanbul to stay in a hotel. Main thing, breakfast is spectacular, sitting on the roof terrace, admiring either the sea or the top of Agia Sophia or the Blue Mosque...... More

Stayed here for 4 nights for a city break. Lovely hotel, and the location couldn't be better, 100 metres from Ayasophia and with plenty of good restaurants nearby. The staff are very friendly, they take pride in their hotel, and their work. My room had been recently renovated. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

This boutique hotel was recommended by a friend who stays there when in Istanbul on business. It is in the Old City where all the historical sights are. Everything is in walking distance. The staff are so friendly & accommodating. Mention must be made of Rambo, the restaurant manager; Serkon, Mahmood & Ilke on the front desk, & Faizal the... More

My daughter stayed at this location before and wanted to stay again when I met her in Istanbul. Amazing location next to the Hagia Sofia and view of the Bosphorus. Lovely seating at the top for breakfast and afternoon coffee. We liked the 3rd floor green rooms. Great location to explore Istanbul.

Unfortunately my attempts to get a room here failed, so I caution anyone from trying. There are way too many hotels in Istanbul's Sultanahmet district who can doubtless provide better service. My experience was that I emailed the hotel directly and asked very simple questions (e.g. "Can we use the free airport transfer to go *to* the airport rather than... More
