Cons: They moved us between rooms two times during our five night stay (gave us half a bottle of red Turkish wine as compensation). A bit far from Taksim and nightlife. The coffee didn't taste good at the morning buffé. Pestered us about to eat at their restaurant (which we never did). Description on booking sites are not true (no... More

This beautiful small hotel is excellent. The location is perfect for the historical attractions of Istanbul. The view from the roof terrace restaurant over the Boshborus is terrific and there i a little mosque besides to remind where you are. The staff is very very kind and helpful. It was tested as a street dog bit me on the leg.... More

The location of this hotel is about great, right at the heart of historical Istanbul. It's a walking distance from Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and Sultanahmet. There are many restaurant around it so food is no issue at all. If the weather is good, have your breakfast outdoor to enjoy your breathtaking view while filling up for the morning. The... More

Stayed here recently for four nights and booked the nicest room they had on the fourth floor. The room had an incredible terrace overlooking the Sea of Marmara and to the left, Topkapi Palace and the Bosphorus strait. The room was good, and the staff were great. The location was about 100 meters from the entrance to Topkapi palace and... More

This hotel was chosen by Mediterra Tours. We stayed there 4 nights. The location is GREAT, and the staff is extremely friendly. I liked the full Turkish breakfast, and enjoyed going to the rooftop for wine in the early evenings. Their dinner menu is very limited.

The hotel was located in the heart of historical Istanbul. The staff was very friendly; especially I want to mention Mazlum, who was very helpful in every occasion. The only problem, he couldn´t help, was little rain. =) Breakfast buffet on the roof restaurant with the fantastic panorama to the sea was the perfect place to start a nice day... More

The hotel was very clean and in a great location close to a number of tourist sites such as the Blue Mosque and the Ayasofya. The view from the terrace is fantastic, especially when it is sunny or at night and this terrace is a lovely place to enjoy the authentic, wide-ranging breakfast. The room was a fine size as... More

A very nice hotel in a great location though the rooms, as in most hotels in Istanbul are small. Walking distance to all the sites. Decent breakfast and Mehmet is a great host. His manager Ali is a bit more stiff, but liaise with Mehmet and you will get all the help you need. Lovely view of the Bosphorous from... More
