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.

The rooms were clean the hotel staff was nice, the breakfast was pretty good and there were plenty of diffrent servings to choose from. I stayed in the new part of the hotel so I can't say... More

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...
