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

The location of this hotel is great to visit by walk. Plus to go to taksim street there is the tram at 5mn walking from the hotel. Breakfast is average. Attention do not accept any room in the old building. You will feel in a prison and the bathrooms are inacceptable. The new building is mostly good.

I may be a "Cheap date" but as long as the place is clean, with friendly staff, and not to noisy, what else its to expect from an old hotel in the middle of one of the oldest cities in the region? an average US$150 a night will set you up with no worries, but when you start cutting corners...

Do not attempt this hotel ever ! Very agressive personnel ; rooms very noisy; when you ask to change the room they propose you another worse just to fool you - to avoid absolutely The location is in a very crowded place

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
