The hotel has a great location and that is one of the only positive things I can say about it. My husband and I had a balcony room, we were made to pay in cash as soon as we arrived which I was not aware of and had planned to pay by card. The room was dirty, huge stains on... More

I'm a female who was travelling alone. PLEASE READ. Hotel was clean and that's the only good thing about it. It's located two roads off Istiklal Ave., good location, in theory, but it can be a bit creepy at night. The manager is a pervert. He asked whether he could accompany me to dinner on the first night I got... More

For this, one can forgive the hotel for being very small - but it was neat and clean and I was happy to find spotless linen on the bed. We... More

Surprised to find so many people writing that they had a bad experience at this hotel since mine was v good. I stayed with my husband on our honeymoon here and had a great time. Yes the rooms are small but most hotels in Istanbul have small rooms and at least they have an elevator. I visited istanbul again recently... More
