“Simple, clean efficient hotel in a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

The hotel has everything you need, comfy, very clean, quiet location and yet only minutes away from the bustle of the city, you can walk to the main sights or hop on a tram. The breakfast is good and the staff helpful. The first room we were put in was very small but when we discovered the A/C did not work we were moved with out hesitation and ended up with a bigger room, which was adequate but not spacious.
Largest rooms on the third floor are 315 and 316 smallest 304. 301 looks like it's next to the lift, but looks big. I am not sure if the floors below follow the same plan.
There is a coffee machine in the room but no kettle for tea, there are 2 bottles of water daily in the room.
The staff are friendly and helpful but only some of them speak English.

Room Tip: Largest rooms on the third floor are 315 and 316 smallest 304. 301 looks like it's next to the l...

The most remarkable: excellent personel! Everyone was very kind and willing to help. Very clean room and well equipped, but it needed better sound isolation with the outside. Fairly new furniture and bathroom, as well as very clean. OK neighbourhood.

Nice lovely hotel within walking distance to Aksaray Tram Station which basically takes you all and about the Old Sultanamet (old city) area of Istanbul and also towards the other side where Taksim Square is. Personally, I prefer the quieter and more charming old city area where all the historic sites are located. The winning combination is topped up with the friendliness and helpful staff (reception specially Gökhan Avcı, porter, and restaurant staff) of the hotel where everyone is so helpful. Breakfast spread is excellent. Rooms though a little small are very clean and very nicely designed

So my husband and I booked a room through booking.com and were upgraded when we checked in which was nice. Personally, we still found the room to be tiny. Do pick the room with the park view if you plan on staying in the room. Since we wanted to see Istanbul it didn't really matter much to us because we'd leave early morning and be too tired when we came back. House keeping and staff were great, the hotel was clean and the rooms well designed.

The hotel was a minutes walk from the Askray- the tram stop so that was convenient after a day of walking.

The best feature of the hotel was their staff (from the bell boy to the receptionist, GoKhan) who were polite and very helpful and def one of the reasons why we opted for Ramada again on our way back.

Its a 30 minutes drive from the airport. Longer during traffic hours so leave early then. The taksi will take around 40 lira.

Room Tip: Pick the room with the park view although joint rooms are not exactly sound proof so we could hear t...
