We stayed here during the Winter season and had a very pleasant experience. The service was exceptional and the location was fantastic, close to restaurants and the Blue Mosque. The rooms are fairly basic but comfortable and the food at the hotel restaurant was more than acceptable. The view from the dining area was superb!

Metro to Zeytinburnu and then catch a tram to sultanahmet - could not be simpler, the Hotel is 50 yards from the tram stop, cross the road and head downhill take the first left and it is on the...

The hotel is in a great location with an awesome rooftop cafe with plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Minutes away from the grand bazaar, hagia sophia, and blue mosque.... More

Stayed for 3 days. Staff is very friendly and helpful, and the hotel is very close to the Aya Sofia and Blue Mosque, as well as the tram line to Karabas. Had a small complaint because of some noise from construction work in the morning on a Saturday, but I have no reason to believe this was anything but temporary.... More
