“Wonderful Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Apart from its great location near the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, what I love about this hotel is that it’s incredibly quaint and adorable. It’s tucked away in the little roads and allies aligned with small shops adorned with lanterns and flowers. We loved opening our window every morning listening to the shop owners start their day. The room has a contemporary look; it’s small, yet comfortable. The staff is nice and helpful.

Looking for a hotel with a balcony is a challenge.
Look no further. We came across this hotel and stayed for a week. We booked a room on the third floor and enjoyed great views of the bosphorus.
Room 132 is compact with walk in shower, mini bar, tea and coffee making facilities, lovely robes and slippers and 6 windows overlooking the bosphorus. The staff are really friendly especially ahmet at the front desk.
He is a terrific ambassador for this hotel.
Breakfast is good. Eggs, cheese, breads and some meats and salads.
Great location for the main sights and plenty of restaurants to choose from nearby
Would recommend you purchase the Istanbul travel card as public transport is close by
Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone planning to visit Istanbul.

My wife and I stayed here for a total of five nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in a prime location (only 2 blocks from Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia) and is tucked away on a quaint little street only a block from the beautiful Four Seasons. The staff (especially the manager, Ahmet) was attentive to our every need often making dining reservations for us and arranging laundry service. The breakfast is very good and includes a huge spread. The rooms were well appointed and extremely comfortable. I'd recommend this hotel any day.

Room Tip: Book one of the mid-level or higher-priced rooms for a little more space. Street noise wasn't a...

My wife and I stayed here for 6 nights. The hotel is a 2-3 minute walk from the Blue Mosque and surrounded by places to eat. It's also about a 5 minute walk to the Tram.

When visiting a place like Istanbul this is the type of hotel you want. Its new, perfectly located, has a friendly staff, and is priced really well. Couldn't ask for more!

This boutique hotel has it all in five stars. Location right in old town walking distance to Topkapi palace, blue mosque,grand bazzar and spice market. Helpful and courteous staff. Ahmet the concierge is outstanding. The breakfast is first class fresh made eggs fruits and pastries.they will get take out for room service for you from a fabulous restaurant across the street called the Meat House. The hotel is well decorated in a modern flair and is spotlessly clean. The rooms are well decorated with comfortable beds and bathrooms have rain head showers with combined toilet bidets. The value is great for the quality of the hotel. Check out the ceramic store right next to the hotel. High quality and reasonable prices with some dickering. During our two week stay in Turkey and Greek islands this was the best hotel.

My boyfriend and I only stayed one night here on our final night in Istanbul. Our first four nights were spent in an AirBnB apartment, but we like to class it up on a final night! They even allowed us to leave a bag there as we continued our trek around Turkey before returning to their hotel 2 weeks later.

When doing our research this place was among the more reasonably priced of higher end hotels. The hotel itself is very clean and modern. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fantastic. Rooms were a great size and I enjoyed the rainfall shower. The only thing I didn't care for in the bathroom were the sensor-flushing toilets (made me feel like I was in a public restroom!)

The location is great for most tourists who wish to be close to the action--Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, the Cisterns, etc etc. All of it is an easy walk from the hotel as well as a short cab ride from the airport. Personally, I enjoyed staying in the neighborhood of Beyoglu more , if only for better nightlife/restaurants--and I dont mind walking everywhere as a New Yorker!

In short, you won't be disappointed with this hotel!

There is no other way to describe this hotel other than outstanding. We had a 5 night stay and enjoyed every moment of our holiday. The hotel staff were lovely, extremely attentive and went out of their way to make your stay memorable. We stayed in room 133 and it was a brilliant room with fabulous views from the balcony of the Bosphorus and the Blue Mosque. The neighbouring streets have great restaurants and bars all with good food and friendly atmospheres and although the hotel is a stone's throw away it is quiet on a night which is ideal. Must recommend the 'Albura Kathisma' restaurant which is on one block down from the hotel as excellent food at a good price. The hotels location is great as you are literally a 2 minutes' walk from Sulhamet Square for the main tourist attractions of Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia ..... and great Tram links to the rest of the city. Breakfast in the hotel is lovely and good and hearty to set you up for the day. If you are looking for excellent accommodation in Istanbul you must stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: If you can get room 133 it has brilliant views from the Balcony!!
