Stayed in the hotel in end February for three nights for a business meeting. You cannot go wrong with the location for this hotel - positioned perfectly to reach some major attractions on foot. The breakfast view with the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia is second to none. Rooms are on a very small side. Bathrooms are very small, one... More

Cosy hotel with perfect location in old part of Istanbul...main topics are near by! Nice room but very small bathroom. Afternoon (16-17) coffe break with sweets for free.Nice staff and good breakfast. Sometimes taxi is confused where is hotel located..but ok, Istanbul is megalopolis. Good value for money!

We stayed here during Feb 2015 (and enjoyed the off season ofcourse) and it was fantastic. Firstly the location is great- 2 mins walk to blue mosque, hagia sofia and all the sights. The hotel is just near the tram station too so it's very convenient if you take the train from the airport, or need to visit other sights... More

Very nice building. Excellent rooms. Gorgeous interior. Picturesque view from the restaurant windows on the top. Clean and tidy. Peace and quiet. Everything is almost great if... Ok, I would say that some of hotel workers need additional training to provide equal service for every guest. It is curiously and unpleasantly enough to see when waiter very friendly says "good...

We arrived quite early and our room was not ready but the staff organised a drink in the foyer and our room was ready. The hotel is very central and so comfortable. The staff are eager to help and will happily point out the directions to all the major tourist sites. Because the hotel is so central it is so... More

I had to make reservations quite quickly after deciding one day before travelling. I read the reviews and made the reservation on Booking.com. We used the hotel private transfer service, which was expensive, but removed the stress of safety with taxis and pricing as we arrived late at night. The front desk staff were always cheerful and helpful. We tried... More
