This small hotel is family run. Located on a quiet street in Sultan Ahmet area it's close to all major attractions. Rooms are comfortable, spotlessly clean and the staff is very helpful. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for 4 nights in June. Yusef is there day and night and is polite and extremely helpful with any questions you may have. After checking us in, he also circled all the tourist spots for us on a map and also showed us an eatery that’s very reasonable and not too touristy. The location of the hotel is... More

It's a great value for money. The location is away from the center of Suntanahmet, though within walking distance of Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, the train station, and other attractions. The owner and his family live on the premises and are very cultured and knowledgeable. The owner drew up a sample three day itinerary for us even before we asked... More

Well situated , a quick walk to the main sights. Fantastic service from the charming Yousef who helped me when my Bank card was swallowed by an ATM at the airport. Rooms are well equipped, but are tiny and the bathrooms are even tinier. We couldn't keep the bathroom dry because the shower was so tiny, very messy! Going back... More

Glad that we found this little hidden gem-like place at such a reasonable price -- well situated in the quieter neighborhood of Sultanahmet, yet close enough to walk to most tourist attractions. Can't say enough about how wonderful the hotel staffs were - attentive, polite with great sense of human. When we arrived, Yusuf offered us drinks and Mehdi gave... More

The hotel is in an excelente location, just 5-19 min walk to main tourist locations in the old city an near the tram. The hotel was very clean and the rooms nice and cozy. Staff rely goes the extra mile to make you fell like at home. The only two downside thing in my opinion is that they do not... More

The average rating is mainly due to issues we had with the shower/bathroom. The shower extension was broken, the water would be either very hot or very cold no matter what you did. We had to call the owner twice to fix it but it still didn't work so ended upp taking shower with cold water. The room was very... More

We found this hotel on trip advisor and we couldn't believe the price (about $100 a day). The hotel is in the old city. The taxis from the airport was 45 Turkish Lira (about $22). We were in room 3 in the front. The room and bathroom are small but adequate. The breakfast was good. The area is quiet except... More

I reserved this room based on Trip Advisor ratings, quoted price, and responsiveness of correspondence. Generally I was satisfied with my stay. It's a family establishment and they are friendly and efficient.. It' a ten minute walk to all the major sights and a few minutes away from many other hotels. However it is literally "on the other side of... More

We found this small hotel after Expedia for some unexplained reason canceled a confirmed reservation without advising us. Only had 24 hours advance notice before landing in Istanbul. Located in Sultanahmet area just a short three or four block walk to Blue Mosque and Basilica Cistern and Haija Sophia and maybe 15 minutes walk to the Grand Bazaar. The owner... More
