“Nice centrally located stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Breakfast was very nice -- yummy cheese, hot tea, and lots of variety. They even let us in early one morning so we could get something before our flight.
Location was convenient, though the walk to the Blue Mosque was uphill.
Staff was friendly, and helpful -- delivered some late arriving luggage to the room while we were out.
The building was a little run down, faucets leaked and the card activated electricity could be finicky (based on 2 different rooms), but overall nice.

Room Tip: The double and triple rooms appear to be the same size, just with an extra bed in the triple...

I have been to Istanbul a number of times on business, but never as a proper tourist, so it was the location of this hotel that first attracted me. Situated only a short walk from all of Istanbul's main tourist attractions, it is located perfectly. We were given a family room for the price of an ordinary double room, so our room was enormous, tastefully decorated, and a pleasure to sleep in. Breakfasts were good and served in an amazing room - full of ancient walls. Free cake, coffee and tea were served in the lobby in the afternoons. And the staff were very helpful with sorting out a safe that wouldn't unlock, arranging transportation for us back to the airport, etc.

I loved it!! Very friendly staff. The rooms are nice, clean and confortable.
I traveled alone and I had a room with two beds but the front desk manager changed my room to another with one king size bed and the Bosphorus view.

The first night I didn't have an adaptor, the staff went to the store, buy an adaptor and they borrow me the adaptor for a few days.

The hotel is located 3 blocks from the Blue Mosque, this is a very safe place and is close to all historical places like Haga Sofia, The Cistern, Topkapi Palace
The breakfast was very good and at afternoon you can have tea, cakes for free in the reception.
The staff is amazing!! They provided me a lot of information about how to go to different places always trying to help in the best way and with a cup of warm turkish tea.
I asked them to arrange my airport pick up, which was perfectly on time.

I strongly recommended it! I'll be back!

My wife and I stayed for six nights and were very impressed with the following
1. The comfort of the rooms, I slept very well
2. The service - all staff were really helpful
3. Breakfast was for all and consisted of omelettes, breads, pastries, muesli, yoghurt, fresh fruit, dried fruit, jams, honey, cheeses, salads and olives - a truly international selection.
4. Every afternoon, tea, cakes and biscuits were laid out in the reception area, just what one needs after a hard days sight seeing
5. There was lots of space in the hotel, the dinning room was in the basement which included remnants of ancient walls.
6. The hotel is located within two minutes walk of all the major sights

Room Tip: We had a view of Aya Sofia and once on the balcony a good view of the Bosphorus

This hotel is close to many locations in Old Istanbul. The rooms were spacious and were clean. The breakfast was great. Even though it was the same each of the days we were there, I looked forward to the cucumbers, tomatoes, cheese and olives each day. The cat who was at the front door each day was so nice too. Tea time and the sweets each afternoon was quite welcoming after a long day of exploring. But the greatest attribute of this hotel is the staff. They were so helpful and accommodating. From arranging tours to just talking, we were really treated as honored guests. I will stay here again and recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Istanbul. You won't be disappointed.
