This small boutique hotel has it all !
Firstly location. It is in the heart of the old city - 10 minutes easy walk to main sites of Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia & Topkapi Palace & the Grand Bazaar in the other direction. It is also 2 mins from the main street & tramline. Yet it's location in an almost pedestrian side street means calm & tranquillity.
The hotel itself is small just 40 rooms on 4 floors with lift so quiet inside too. The main lobby is large with sofas & chairs. On the top floor is an excellent restaurant & open air terrace with far reaching views over the old city & Sea of Marmara. A great place for a pre dinner drink whether you eat in or out.
The rooms are traditionally furnished, spotlessly clean with a comfortable bed & bathroom with bath & shower over. All you need. No they are not large rooms as previously mentioned by some but who stays in their room on a city break! Free wifi is available throughout hotel & signal on the whole was good.
The staff all speak excellent English & are extremely welcoming, helpful & friendly. All on the concierge desk gave good clear advice & booked tours & restaurants for us when asked. The restaurant manager welcomed us as old friends each evening for our terrace drinks.
The breakfast buffet is fresh & plentiful with hot & cold buffet choices. The 'specials' evening menu in the terrace restaurant on our first evening was a good introduction to Turkish cuisine.
There is a small intimate hamman but we didnt use it.
Prices v good value for the location in heart of a large city.
Highly recommend as a city break base.
