We were moving around Europe with my wife for a couple of weeks (Italy mostly), but we took the opportunity and we have visited the beautiful and interesting city of Istanbul for only three days. We were lucky to find and stay in this wonderful and excellent hotel. From day one, Nesim at the reception, receive us with an enormous... More

This is the second time I visit this hotel and I would come back again. The staff are very polite particularly Mr Nassim who is very attentive to any issues I had. Initially the room I was provided with was a little smaller than our first visit but Mr Naseem ensured I got a bigger room once it was made... More

We stayed at this hotel and would not recommend it to anyone going to Istanbul. The staff were hopeless. The hot water was not hot. The bar area is disgusting. Very poor uncooked breakfast. We will never make the mistake to stay at this hotel again. No laundry service. John & Gail Laney

Basic hotel, good clean, but no restaurant, other than breakfast.. around the corner from a lively area with 45 fish restaurants. The staff was very friendly. There was plenty of hot water, and it is convenient to the tram to the Sultanahmet area where there are the major tourist attractions. The breakfast was good and the dining room was on... More

Very nice hotel, helpful employees, kind service. Rooms are small but clean and beautiful - in typical ottoman style, and the location is stunning! It is near to the historical center; shopping and restaurants nearby. It is really close to the tram station - probably 5 minute walk. I would definitely return there.
