The location is excellent. Rooms are simple and not particularly big (rather small) but clean and with standard amenities (plus some nice sweets). Breakfast was good but nothing exceptional. It's not like the Orient Express (possibly not a luxury hotel but a sensible one) We could not enjoy the restaurant (which has excellent reviews) as it was already fully booked... More

The roof top Imbat restaurant is very good, but you must book your table in advance!! A very good to... More

Located in the Sirkeci area, close to Sultanahmet, you are really near to most major sights. Rooms are smallish but very comfortable. As the hotel is on the tramline and in a busy area with bars and restaurants, I guess you should ask for a room at the back though. Breakfast is reasonably varied and good quality. Staff is very...

Fantastic location. Room was at the rear of the hotel and so no issues with noise. A bit on the small side, but was clean and met all of our needs. Breakfast was varied and plentiful.The restaurant terrace has fantastic views and the food was superb. I had recently broken my ankle and the staff couldn't have been more helpful... More

Free pickup from the airport after a transcontinental flight can't be beat. Welcome tea and short intro to the neighboring sites. Very clean, though small room. Breakfast was plentiful and varied. Great rooftop restaurant (Imbat), one of the highlights of our trip. Best part, though, was the heated basement pool. Perfect temperature. Great after a day of exploring. The area... More

We stayed at the hotel for 8 nights and had a room at the back of the hotel, so noise was not an issue. Whilst the rooms are small they are more than adequate, very clean, comfortable and functional. The location of the hotel, whilst on a main thoroughfare, is excellent within easy walking to the main attractions and to... More

The hotel is situated in a key point for sightseeing. The staff is helpful. The rooms are noisy and not spacious. Swimming pool small, but pleasing after long walks in Istanbul. Some breakfast dishes not fresh.

This small boutique hotel in the heart of the cultural section of Istanbul, within walking distance of the major attractions. The staff are friendly and helpful, offering useful information and compassion for travel weary patrons. The room we had was small though comfortable, and was on the top floor (as we'd requested) with a nice view of the waterfront and... More
