Stayed here with my family over a New Years. Location was excellent, but everything else was just ok. We were in a family room which was located a couple of blocks from the main hotel. The room was decent and spacious, but construction in the building next door made it pretty painful to stay in the room. Of course, we were in Istanbul, so we weren't spending a whole lot of time in the room.

Price again was not a great value (booked through booking.com) and was jacked up because of the holiday. Car park next door was also pretty pricey. Asked to get tea/coffee in the room (there was a teapot) three times, but it never came, so we gave up. Otherwise, the staff were nice and attentive and the breakfast was good.

Bottom line: Would I stay here again? Probably not.

• Location: great
• Check in: Fast.
• Bed: Comfortable.
• Bathroom: Clean.
• Staff: Warm and friendly. They do everything to help you.
• Breakfast: Good buffet.
• General opinion of the hotel: We had booked a family room ( 04 guests in the same room ) which was 200m away from the hotel building, but the room had a problem in one of the beds and they decided to give us two double rooms in the main hotel building. It was in fact great to have two rooms and it was very convenient for us. We were very happy with the hotel management.

Hotel is situated absolutely great. It is about 5min walk from Hagia Sofia and Topkapi. Isnt on main street so calm during the night. Nice rooms, new bathroom, everything clean.
Stuff was nice, we get a box of turkish delight as a gift :) which was quite nice.
I really appreciate breakfast with varieties of turkish traditional food and not only typical breakfast meal such as eggs and ham /which were there also to take/.
I can only recommend this place.

We chose this hotel because of the very good reviews and the promising presentation in their brochure and website - but our expectations were not met.
The hotel certainly is above average in many points such as having a lift (which is very convenient when your room is on the fourth floor), showing a general cleanliness, comfortable beds, and friendly staff. The advertised hospitality tray in the room (for making your own hot drinks) as well as the promised bathrobe were missing - we had free tea though from the breakfast area and free hotel slippers. The room was small, the second person could only sit down on the bed. The wardrobe was not deep enough for clothes hangers and had insufficient space. The net curtains were dusty-dirty and really in need of a wash. However, the bed clothes were bright white, and the duvet warm enough for a November stay.
The bathroom showed mould in the usual, hard-to-clean corners of the shower tray and doors, had a rattling air extractor, and an old, sawn-off waterpipe in the ceiling which was stuffed with toilet paper and was surrounded by a big watermark.
The breakfast area was rather small with 18 seats, the buffet offered a wide, but unexciting choice. It was supposed to start at 7:30 a.m., yet the 'early-birds' were left almost high and dry until the better things (scrambled and boiled eggs, pastries and fresh tomatoes/cucumbers) arrived by 8:15.
Overall we did not regret our decision to stay here for 5 nights: the price was very good, the position excellent for sight-seeing, but the surrounding area is a mixture of well-kept houses and hotels, and brightly lit shops and restaurants on the ground floor of dingy buildings in a run-down quarter.

I would heartily recommend this hotel for a holiday stay in Istanbul. I stayed for a total of 3 nights on two different occasions, and found the hotel to be clean, comfortable and great value. The location is very handy to the light rail system (which is efficient and cheap, running from the airport with one simple transfer) and is walking distance to many of Istanbul's key attractions (the Hagia Sophia is just up the hill - maybe 10 minutes walk, and I even walked up to Taksim Square). Breakfast was included in the room rate, and was excellent. Rebi was an excellent host - nothing seemed too much trouble for him.
