Next door to a factory, continious and repetitive bang bang thump thump thump till 20 past 10 at night. If you want a quiet holiday find somewhere else.
Despite making a reservation we were obviously not expected.
Breakfast very average.

But this hotel very kind and lovely, the staff unexceptionable. view from the courtyard not so beaty and you can't sea the panorama, just only on the roof, where you can eat the breakfast.
... Everything was correct.. Relative is in the central. Total whole is a very good hotel.

And VEDAT thanks everything!! :)))

This hotel is wonderfully located for exploring the sites of Istanbul. The rooms are a little small but well maintained and clean. The breakfast is really good too. A little pricey on their high season rates though.

Stayed with my family for a week at this place.

Good
Rooms were clean, and cleaned well every day
Decor was a good standard
Location is decent, 15 mins walk from the blue mosque or you can take the metro which is a short walk.
Free wifi- very useful!

Bad
Staff don't speak the best English except the receptionist whose English was good
Breakfast was a good standard but its the same stuff everyday which gets a bit boring.

Overall though if I went back I would definately stay at the place again. Staff were very friendly and well mannered.

I think there is no need to describe the hotel, because I certify that the staff of this hotel are perfect and they made it to be excellent.

FOR EVERYONE whom they need Hotel please go to this Hotel in Istanbul, it's very clean and serviced with a good staff beside that it's very near to the beach...

Room Tip: Room Number 301 is very calm and nasty.
