Very good hotel with polite and helpful staff. Very convenient, close to the subway station. Also in a walking distance to Istiklal Street and Taksim Square. Wonderful breakfast and great Turkish bath.

Despite the small size of the room, it was very clean and tidy, both the sheets of bed and the toilet.the staff are very kind and helpful, specially in giving you the... More

The room is clean and roomy by European standards (the bath is a bonus) but... Language difficulty and unhelpful staff was enough to change hotels. At one point I couldn't even order a coffee. No I'm not joking, obviously pointing to what I was trying to convey from the menu wasn't enough. The impression I got was that it seemed... More

Stayed here on 2 different nights. Firstly it is in a good location for travel on public transport or even walking around all the main sites. The frontage overlooks the Golden Horn and the evening views from the front are superb but sadly our 2 different rooms were at the back with little or no view. The worst thing about... More

This hotel is located in a strategic location. It is central to everything you’re going to need in Istanbul. Breakfast need to be improved. Choose hi level floors. Ask for sea view room, ask for bigger room with good bed.
