A delightful and friendly boutique hotel situated exactly where you want to be for Istanbul sightseeing. Many essential venues are within easy walking distance, e.g. Topkapi Palace, Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, several museums, the Basilica Cisterna; and a tram ride or taxi gets you quickly to the others. The local district retains its old fashioned charm, & is full of good restaurants, bars & shops. The hotel is modern but with a distinctly Turkish feel, & our room was spacious, well appointed, comfortable and properly air-conditioned. It also had good Wi-Fi. The hotel only serves breakfast, so other meals have to be taken elsewhere but in this neighborhood this is an advantage. If you do want to dine in your room a nearby restaurant will oblige! Lovely hotel, strongly recommended.
