“Wonderful stay at a very cozy hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

İt felt like ı was at home with a very welcoming staff , the breakfast was a star it gave me a very good start to a long day so make sure you dont miss out the breakfast .They have a bar at the terrace it was one of the best views ı have seen,with a blue mosque and the marmara sea.The room was comfortable and they had free wfi in the room and air con so it was a relaxing room with a blue mosque view and the marmara sea. I also had a free pick up service from the airport becuase ı stayed for 4 nights. ı would highly reccomed this hotel.

I would not recommend this hotel, for various reasons. The room was shabby, the lobby was dull and uninteresting, and the location was very mediocre, as it faces an empty lot. The breakfast was really crummy -- stale food, ill cooked, flavorless. Yes, the view from the terrace is amazing - but that does not overcome the lousy decor and service. Also, you are so close to the big mosque that the muzzein call is deafeningly loud. Overpriced for what they offer.

This small hotel is located in the old city and perfectly located for walking to all the great sites in the old town, including the Blue Mosque (see picture), Agia Sophia the Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar. The rooms are pleasantly old-fashioned and quirky, and while not large are comfortable and clean. The roof has a cafe with great views across the Bosphorous. The staff were very accomodating, hospitable and organised a return to the airport very early (04:00 a.m.) with no trouble. There are plenty of eating places around, also with roof terraces. A good hole, as my father would say.

sI've just returned from Istanbul where a friend and I stayed at Hotel Turkoman in Sultanahmet. I will definitely return to stay here. This was my 4th visit to Istanbul and although I've never had a bad stay, the staff at this hotel stood out! I have yet to meet friendlier and more accommodating staff. Although everything about my stay here was good, I would go back for the staff alone.
We were served a more-than-lovely breakfast buffet with a range of goodies including halva and fresh cherries to add to your yoghurt, fritters, boiled eggs, sour cherry juice (yum) - too much to mention. A sea gull joined us on the balcony - with a GREAT view of the Blue Mosque - and ate with us. (S)He called his babies over from the adjacent roof and they came squawking to join the party though they kept their distance.
Our luggage (very heavy, I might add) was carried around; they obligingly allowed us to shower although we had already booked out... I could go on and on.

We were recommended this hotel by friends and were very impressed. Excellent location adjacent to blue Mosque and close to everything. We stayed four nights and had wonderful corner room with plenty of space and great bathroom facilities. The breakfasts were amazing with wide selection of breakfast food, excellent coffee and great staff. The hotel was immaculate, wifi great, the terrace for relaxing and drinks perfect a retreat after a busy day out in Istanbul. It was really quiet in evenings and early mornings as no traffic in this particular area so really could highly recommend.

The location cannot be beat - just a minute's walk from the quiet end of the Hippodrome - the room was airy and spotlessly clean, the shower strong and hot, and the bed very comfortable. The furnishings are a hodgepodge of stuff from grandma's attic. We had an inner room with a view of an airshaft, but so what? The rooftop breakfast room has a million dollar view of the Blue Mosque and, until 11:30, that room serves as a bar where you can have a beer (Efes, of course), while watching the moon float over the minarets. No restaurant, but there are dozens of places within a block or two.

Staying here involves a lot of steps - there is no elevator. Also, the air conditioner is mounted high on a wall and could be difficult for anyone of less than average height to reach. There was only one spare outlet for charging phones and such, not uncommon in older places like this.

Our hosts were charming and friendly - it was like staying with friends. The whole enterprise is supervised by Kopeck.

Room Tip: I wouldn't bother paying more for a room with a view. You can always pop up to the roof.

A very nice hotel and very homely. We stayed there in mid 2012. The host - the boss, the lady & doggy, the kitchen lady, the night man were very accommodating, and the cat. The decoration, the furniture were classic. They granted our request to have the lower floor room for my aged mother-in-law. My husband & 1 also have the lower floor room with the children having upper floor rooms. Breakfast was nice just like home. The terrace view was superb. My mother-in-law couldn't really took the steps up to the restaurant for breakfast. So the man on night shift sent hot water EVERY EARLY MORNING (5-6 am) to my mother-in-law's room for her to take her medicine, Blue mosque was just a short walk. The grand bazaar was quite far but the children didn't mind.
