The only advantage is location that is not far from main architectural sightseeing( 2tram stops away). Staff seemed to be passive and was not interested in the needs of their customers. Our room was very tiny we couldn't even move around. Beds were small and broken. The view through our window was neighbor building with many restaurants and cheap bars... More

Staff service is very good. Some rooms need maintenance especially for toilets. I tried rooms 401 and 613 (which I was in about 15 days ago). Also, the elevator makes a noisy voice which is irritating especially when people are asleep.

Just got home from an amazing 4 night stay in Istanbul . This hotel is in a busy area but it would be hard to find a quiet area in Istanbul to be truthful. Although on a busy road, our room was on the first floor and faced the road but we were not bothered by street noise at night.... More
