The hotel was a nice Surprice . The Staff was kind and friendly. The location is good since it is close to many historical sites. Tram stop five minutes away. The breakefast started at 8.30 which in my opinion is a bit late. But the content was decent. It is served on the top floor with a marvolous view of... More

A great location right next to (both physically & sonically!) the Blue Mosque and many other locations. In fact, you can walk to many fantastic attractions within 5 - 10 minutes from Cem Sultan; Beautiful mosques, Grand Bazar, Spice Bazar, Palace, Mosaic Museum, Basilica Cistern etc. I would agree with many of the other comments here, however, the hotel is...

The service is excellent. Breakfast is included in the very reasonable fees. And served on the top floor with brilliant view of the sea. The hotel also... More

When we arrived we found out that there was some electricity issue in the room we booked, we stayed for 4 nights there in another shared room and they did not even charge us. The location is excellent and its also very cheap. Staff was nice enough to book a Hodja Pasha show for us and the Bosphorous Cruise.

Hotel is located in a nice place in the middle of the town where there is no problem to visit many interesting sights. The people who served us at the hotel were very helpful and nice. Can be accommodated at an attractive price. If I go to Istanbul, I will go to this hotel. Our easy cycling team was very... More

We booked a five day stay via booking service and paid 20% in advance. That made us stay in that house. On arrival we learned that we had to stay in another room in a house in the neighborhood for two nights. We were fine with the replacement enjoying seaview and acceptable space. The other day we left the hotel... More

On arrival the friendly and welcoming staff checked we were ok with our booking of an economic double room, warning us it was very small, we said it would be fine. He wasn't wrong, the room was small and didn't have a window. It was basic but comfortable and provided all we needed. By the end of our week's stay... More

If you're looking for a 5-Star hotel, this is not your place. If you're even looking for a 3-Star place to lay your head, this might be pushing it. But... we were super spoiled for our first 3 nights in Istanbul, and we needed a cheaper place to sleep and store our stuff during the day... and this place fit... More
