This hotel is within a 5 minute walk to Aya Sophia and Topkapi Palace. Nice restaurants close by. The room was a good size and the bathroom was very clean. The staff was friendly and helped with all our questions. Breakfast was standard and acceptable.

My travel agent booked this hotel. At first, I didnt have so many expectations about this hotel. At the end, I would love to say that this hotel was perfect for location since it was in old town area, near The Blue Mosque. The room was clean and free of smoking. Moreover, the staffs were very helpful. At the first... More

Had 4 nights here from 26th February. Small hotel but catered for all our needs. Very handy for all the sights but in a quiet street. Decent size bedroom. Heard no internal or external noise. Helpful staff. Would stay here again.

Where do I start....Great location. Great staff. Great Views from the roof top terrace. Will defiantly be our hotel of choice next time. The area can be a bit noisy but you have to remember you close to the Bosporus in Istanbul (17m people) so a little background noise is expected. I would probably say its one of the quieter... More

We really enjoyed staying in this lovely hotel. It made an excellent base for all of our sightseeing in Istanbul. The hotel is well situated for many attractions, for example the Blue Mosque can be seen from the hotel's terrace. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast is very good. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

A small and nice budget hotel with a friendly and helpful staff. Good location in a quite area close to all the main sites and the tram. Many good restaurants in walking distance. The breakfast at the hotel was ok. Recommended!

My elderly parents, husband, and I visited Istanbul during a week of rain that steadily became a proper blizzard. Even in inclement weather, our rooms' sea views were calming and a source of everyday pleasure. The roof terrace enjoys a lovely panoramic view, including the back of the Blue Mosque and the Sea of Marmara: it must be a prized... More

We stayed here with our three adult children who occupied one bedroom consisting of three single beds while we had a room to ourselves. Our rooms had gorgeous views of Istanbul's rooftops and the street below, magnificent to behold at night. Only the duty manager spoke English but staff there are ever helpful and courteous, always ready to assist. The... More
