This hotel cannot be beat for location, our room literally overlooked the Hagia Sophia and it was a short stroll to all the main attractions. We felt very safe here as two women traveling alone and the staff made us feel very welcome, especially Ozghar who was very helpful and welcoming to us. They provided good information and advice.

First the Hotel is not far from Ataturk Airport so it was very easy to reach by the Taxi to the nearest drop point, then the hotel sent a nice mercedes car to pick both of me and my son directly to the Hotel.

Great boutique hotel located close to the major sites! Staff were excellent and very helpful and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend this hotel to all. The staff bent over backwards to help us - advising on what to do when and organizing taxis etc. First Class!

From Istanbul we brought the best possible experience, though it was only short one-day-stay during our layover! As a really frequent traveller I can say, only seldom I met such an extraordinary helpful staff. The hotel is clean and can be compared with the best ones - if you are not looking for spacious lobby with crystal chandelliers but for... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and couldn't have been happier with the location, right next to The Hagia and therefor close to a lot of the other must see attractions. However, that's the best we can say about it; The rooms are small and basic which is no problem, however, all rooms at the back of the hotel are... More

Just stayed a night two weeks ago. Perfect location and lovely historic hotel. My room had a view across to Blue Mosque and just a glimpse of Hagia Sophia. It really is right next to Hagia Sophia! Staff were friendly and breakfast impressive. Will definitely return.
