Stayed here for 5 nights. It is a very clean hotel where the hotel staff tried hard to help us with any problem we encountered. The breakfast buffet had fresh food which was nicely presented. The hotel is close to public transport and it was an easy walk to the grand bazaar.

Great location in the European part of Istanbul. A 15 minute walk to Galata Bridge and the Spice Bazaar, to the north. Or you can walk to the University area and down to Topkapi Palace, Aya Sofia or the Blue Mosque. Was on a Tour with Gate1 travel, so we had a Buffet Breakfast and Dinner at the hotel which... More

I stayed at this hotel with my spouse and our 8 months old baby. We had a great experience with almost everything in the hotel. We were extremely happy with the cleanliness of our room, as they changed our sheets and towels daily. Front desk staff were also VERY kind and accommodating. Our flight was cancelled two days in a... More

The hotel is very well positioned, within walking distance from all major sights in the Sultanahmet district (Blue Mosque, Suleymaniye Cami, Grand Bazar, Topkapi Palace) and the metro station Aksaray (the line that connects with the Ataturk Airport). The T1 tram station is within a 5 min walk. It has clean rooms with very comfortable beds and very polite staff.... More

First of all, the service in this hotel was truly outstanding! Every staff member was smiling and helpful. I never even opened the door myself, someone always kept it open for me. The room was spacious and clean. Bed was comfortable, shower and toiletries good. The cleaner gave us complimentary water (two 500ml bottles) daily. With the window and curtains... More

Very clean and comfortable updated hotel at a great location. Our rooms (2 visits) were both spacious and comfortable and since they faced the side street, were also very quiet. Desk staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet in the basement offered a very nice variety and was always well maintained and stocked. (Try the yogurt.) We'd happily stay... More

Great location with lots of shops and eateries all around the back streets, only 10 minutes walk to the Grand Bazaar which is a must see and truly unique experience. People are all very friendly and majority of the Turks speak good English and German.

I found this hotel to be nicer than I had expected, having read some of the reviews. Everything was clean, modern and comfortable. The food, both buffet and set menu, was very nice. There wasn't an American breakfast, but the hotel is not in America. On our last stay our room was directly in front of the beautiful Shehzade mosque,... More
