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... More

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

I have no idea how this hotel got four stars someone must have been off. The baths plug does not work so you cant bath. There is mould all over the bath, and taps have someones hair on it. Room is big enough but very old fashioned and cheap furniture. The one plug that you can use to charge things... 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

I visit Istanbul with my family and friends, it is small nice hotel close to old city attractions. Staff of the hotel was very helping and nice, they made our stay better than we expected. Breakfast at the hotel was always nice. I recommend this hotel for those families who love to explore city walking. There are many small shops... More

I visited istanbul with my family and stayed at a small nice hotel that was close to all the attractions. The people there were welcoming and very helpful. They made our stay even better than expected.

I choose that hotel because of its 4 star but hospitality was extremely worst, my room was smelling so bad, internet is hell slow and Wi-Fi signals are very low in room, hotel lifts are like aircraft washroom only 2 person can stand not even with their luggage, front desk staff is horrible and rude and not able to speak...
