Great location; just a few minutes away from many touristic attractions of Istanbul such as Gullane parc,Topkapi palace, the blue mosque, the Bosphorus...etc. But most of all ive been extremely moved by the unbelievably friendly and helpful staff... I just loved it so much and I hope we will be coming back many times.

The hotel is centrally located and in short walking distance of everything you need to see in Istanbul as well as some fabulous restaurants. The staff is friendly, helpful, and trustworthy. The hotel and rooms are clean and include shampoo and shower gel, tea/tea pot, etc. The hairdryer, however, is barely functional and our room was very noisy at night.... More

I like this hotel, first it has good location. The breakfast is very good with a lot of variety of food products. The room very clean and comfortable. But the best of this hotel for me is your attention, specially in the reception with Suleyman Yasar, a big professional! I recommend everybody
