I was in Istanbul for business for 2 weeks and stayed here. My room was front facing and a decent size for one person. My room was well maintained and always clean and fresh looking everyday. This hotel seemed to be the place to stay for any package tours and had high turnover of tour bus travelers every few days.... More

The reviews are pretty much right on target for this hotel. The location is excellent... just steps from the Metro. And it is only a short walk to restaurants, shopping and sights, The rooms are clean but very small. I would stay here again. But one thing to keep in mind... service is limited. As you probably read, no bottled... More

This hotel has a good location. Just behind the hotel after a 200 metres walk comes Istiklal Street, one of the happening places in Istanbul having all sorts of shops, pubs and restaurants and thereon after a 15-20 minute walk, the huge Taksim Square. Also the Galata Tower is behind the hotel. To get to the old city areas of... More

Very clean, friendly staff, nice breakfast buffet. Excellent value for the price. Great location: 2 minutes walk to Sishane metro station, 5 minutes walk to Galata tower with many nice restaurants in the neighborhood, 10 minutes walk to Galata bridge. From the breakfast room you have a great view of the Golden Horn. Free, fast Wifi.
