From the time booking was made with the hotel, the Manager was in touch: to inform re shuttle service and any other service that I may need. When we were delayed coming out from airport because of baggage delay, and call was made to hotel re delay, assurance that driver would wait was so comforting. Front desk staff (particular mention...

 様々な観光場所に行きやすいホテルということで選択しました。妻と二人で12月29日~1月1日と1月3日~1月6日の期間滞在しました。  どこに行くにもとても便利で、主な観光地、アヤソフィア、トプカプ宮殿、地下宮殿などは徒歩圏内でした。  ホテルのアメニティーでほぼ補えますが、歯ブラシはなかったので持参した方がよいと思いました。また、最初の部屋にバスタブがなかったのでフロントに伝えたところ、すぐにバスタブ付の部屋にかえていただきました。WIFIも快適とまではいきませんが、部屋で使えました。もし快適に使う場合にはロビーにソファがたくさんあるのでそちらでの接続をお勧めします。また、地下には年間を通して使えるプールやサウナがあるので水着を持参していくと楽しめるでしょう。  ベリーダンスのショーの予約(ホジャパシャ文化センター)もホテルから正規料金(1人70TL)でやってくれます。当日はフロントのスタッフが雨の中傘をさして会場まで送ってくれました。  ホテルの隣にお菓子や飲み物、お酒を売っている個人店もあり、朝から深夜までやっているので助かりました。(値段も良心的でエフェスビールは瓶で5TLでした。)また、徒歩3分程度の場所にカルフールの小さいスーパーもあるのでスープの素や紅茶などのお土産はそこでほぼ買い揃えることができました。ただし、スーパーにはお酒は売っていませんでした。  次回イスタンブールを訪れることがあったら、またこのホテルに泊まりたいと思いました。 We had a very nice room, clean... and the staff was so helpful and friendly and welcoming. The location is perfect with walking distances of 5-10min to the main attractions as blue mosque, grand bazar... We would stay at this hotel again.

Great location, (within walking distance of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia etc.) very helpful staff, and a good breakfast. If you are driving yourself through Istanbul it may be a little difficult to get to the hotel as it is in a tiny little street, but as we had no car it was totally fine. They have a free hotel...

Good points: 1. Location of the hotel - walking distance from historic landmarks and must-see places for travelers to Istanbul: Sultanahmed Palace, Hagia Sofia and many other places 2. Very friendly and helpful personnel, especially at the reception desk Points where improvements are required: 1. Most suites are divided between each other by thin inner doors - you could hear...

Firstly, note that this hotel is better known to locals as Hotel Safir. The service at this place was exceptional. Helped us schedule airport shuttles, helped us translate with our local driver, and were otherwise helpful in every other way. The rooms were good, just a little small though. This hotel is all about the location - fantastic eating joints... More

To start with, i had booked the hotel after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. And none of them were wrong. Its a beautiful hotel, with a very warm & courteous staff. Rooms are bit small, but thats okay, people just come there to sleep and they are out on tours in the morning till evening. Bathrooms are big and decent... More

We stayed 5 nights and had the best time ever. Perfect location, very accommodating staff from the reservation to the reception, food, comfortable and clean rooms.. the huge Sauna room that helped us sweat after roaming under the cold weather. Would definitely recommend this hotel to all. Free Wifi by the way...

Stayed in this hotel earlier in the year for a short break. It is a perfect little hotel with great amenities and spot on location. Within walking distance to all the great sights it suited us completely and when you've spent the day walking the city you can chill out by using the indoor pool and sauna. Breakfast offered a...
