The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful in all matters. The rooms are fully equipped, clean, and nice to be in. There is a great little restaurant with a roof... More

I stayed 3 nights in this hotel with my daughter (aged 21) and we found it perfect for us. The rooms are not overly large, but contain everything you could possibly need from bathrobes and slippers to fridge and kettle. It was all spotlessly clean, the beds very comfortable and both TV and WiFi worked perfectly. The hotel is is... More

The staff were attentive, the breakfast was varied and excellent and the room was comfortable. We had a late flight out and were offered the use of the pool and... More

The only additional but important information is the transfer from Ataturk airport is so easy, take the metro from inside the airport terminal, change at one station and stop... More

Nice compact hotel, very good value and excellent location. 10 min walk to the Hagia Sophia and the blue mosque. Very busy part of town with tram-line outside. Small but clean indoor pool. The staff are very helpful and polite.

Very convenient location for this charming old fashioned hotel. Rooms not large but perfectly clean and comfortable. Breakfast was incredibly lavish in choice and quality. Best feature was the kindness and helpfulness of all the staff.

The staff were all excellent and couldn't do enough for you and the rooms were all that you need for a... More
