We stayed there for 12 days. and during our stay, the only polite person that we encountered was the cleaning lady. The staff were rude and would refuse to give us any internet passwords for the second week even though I explained to them that I needed the internet for important purposes. There was almost no ventilation. I could smell... More

The hotel's location was great; Right next to the tram and only about 2 miles from Sultanahmet District. They were also kind and upgraded our room so we could share a bed on our honeymoon. The rooms were on the run down side. The first room's toilet barely flushed. The paint was chipping on the walls and everything seemed tired.... More

Good service with comfy beds. Stayed in a triple room. It's located near the major tranportation areas (metro and tramway) where you can get to anywhere in Istanbul. Need to add more options to the breakfast. Recommended for people who stay out all day and only come to rest at night.

We visited this hotel in 2013, we were a group of 5. The rooms are fair, spacious but not well decorated. The service is fine but not too welcoming. It is a clean hotel if i may say. As for the breakfast it is poor, not so many choices. The surrounding is too crowded, not for a tourism trip For... More
