“Very surprising breakfast.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Great location in the old part. Location, location, location. Lots of good restaurants nearby. Weird that you check in and go to hotel next door, but it looks like they have about five seperate ones. No aircon for cooling only heating. Didn't get that. We had to sleep with the windows open a do it was quite noisy at times.

But the breakfast is not what I think westerners would expect. Hardly anything edible. We had boiled eggs.

I recently spent a week in this hotel and overall was very pleased with the experience. Its location in the Old Town was excellent for visiting the main sites, with a tram stop conveniently being just round the corner. There was a wide selection of restaurants and other eating places in the immediate vicinity.

The hotel was friendly and clean, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Although, facilities were a little limited, i,e, No real bar (although drinks were available) and no real facility for lunch or evening meal, these being available at an adjacent associated hotel. The selection at breakfast was limited and a little mundane, but it was plentiful and there was no excuse for going hungry.

The bedroom was en suite, comfortable, clean and well serviced, but other facilities were a little limited. e.g. no provision for tea or coffee

Unless you are looking for a little more luxury, I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to you.

Hotel is located conveniently in the old city. Great sightseeings, restaurant and shopping
streets are in a walking distance. Tram stop is very close. The room was clean but smelled tobacco smoke. Therefore we had to keep windows open all the time. It was OK, except muzzein's call for prayer woke up at 5 in the morning. We were in the 5th floor and water pressure was very low in the morning or absent at all. So just in case avoided soaping my head. The staff was friendly and breakfast quite good.

Istanbul is a very beautiful city. It is both modern and historical city.It has beautiful historical places. Its most place near to another one.hagia sofia , blue mosque, grand bazaaar, topkapı palace are very beautiful places., the place which the hotel is located too close to these I felt myself home. And i suggest it to everyone.places.You can come there by foot. And the staff of the hotel are too sincere and friendly.

I traveled with a friend and we stayed in this hotel for 5 days (twin bed room).The room was clean, the stuff very helpful, breakfast abundant and the location was really great. We got an discount because we booked it from their official page. All in all we liked it a lot and would recommend it to everyone :)
