We stayed with my wife two nights as part of our honeymoon. We were delighted by the decoration at arriving, the whole hotel is precious and the room was great. Even we had a first floor room you can still have a beutiful view from the window/balcony. You are walking distance from many Istambul landmarks and the area is safe... More

Serving the international Travel industry since 1990 (24 yrs), I've tried all sort of accomodations from an average two stars hotels to five stars historical castles bed & breakfast. Except for a few properties, there was always something I am not completely happy about (Whether it was the room location, bathroom, cleaning, supplies replenishing, front desk services, breakfast or billing...etc.)....

Will definitely stay here again. Beautiful building, and excellently appointed. The staff members are very helpful, and the location is perfect for sightseeing around this old part of the City. Good breakfast and pretty tasty coffee. It's surrounded by restaurants and cafe/bars of all kinds; I dined every evening at the Dubb Ethnic Restaurant which is right next door. Highly... More

I am extremely glad that I booked a room in this hotel. It was an absolute blessing to have the staff regularly helping us with our silly questions about Istanbul including planning routes to hot tourist destinations in Istanbul. The receptionists were totally out of the world! They were like angels! Our check-in time was at 13:30. But we landed... More

The hotel fits the name. A cozy nine room former Ottoman mansion on a hill overlooking the Sea of Marmara right at the mouth of the Bosporus on one side, and on the other a close up view of the magnificent domes of the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia uphill just a couple blocks away. This is how you... More

I must say it's nice and clean place, good located (in the center) with nice, helpful staff. What is more the food was tasty. The hotel was close to the Blue Mosque. To sum up i can recommend that place.
