This hotel should be called so, neither for the service, nor the rooms. We got "no view" room as we had to stay for 2 nights (we were leaving at 3 am another night), but what we got was basement room, with no window, no ventilation, dirty smelly room, with dents in the walls, just disgusting. For the staff "no view" (which we presumably thought was no view to the sea or the beatiful part of the street), meant no window and rooms with molds. We requested either full refund or upgrade, but they were not cooperative, did not offer a room for the first night, offered just for another when we were leaving (3 am). As the booking was done through the agency, paid in full, refund was not possible. Then they offered another room, a bit better, but we prefered not to use any of the sheets and towels, they were all torn, with stains, and greyish instead of white. Even if you book economy room, it should be clean and look like a decent place for humans to stay. So if you want to enjoy the city - which I had done several times before, never ever go to this place, which is falling apart and the staff is uncooperative. They should not have the rooms in the basement at all, even for the service staff. I am quite sure that the "better rooms" would have been disappontment as well, as I saw the quality of "new sheets and towels" just brough in from the laundry - that was disgusting!

I have noticed that an overall grade for this hotel remains high, which is misleading, but most of the recent reviews are negative. So, it tells, that, perhaps, the management went down at some point. Many of the issues could have been dealt with better under different management. The positives were: The location is great, blocks away from the heart of Sultanahmet. The bed linens were clean. Air conditioner worked and so did wi-fi. Now to negatives: Two out of the three rooms were not ready for our arrival even as we arrived at 7 in the evening. It was almost like they did not expect to see us. So, some guys were sent to clean the rooms and it took time. We were after 10 hours drive, so this delay mattered. One of the rooms we booked was advertised as a "street view", but what it had was a window facing a concrete wall within inches of that window. So, yes, some light was available, but definitely no view. In two of the rooms the toilet was not flushed. All rooms lacked blankets and towels. I had to remind to bring those in several times before it was done. The TV in my room did not work, but I did not bring this issue up even. One room lacked a TV remote control. We have been promised a secure private parking, but our car ended up staying right out in the street, and yet we were charged for the parking. We did not take the breakfast there, but it is served in a different hotel across the street.

There is no comparison at all with images on their website and in reality. We were really getting really bad, it was dirty, running water out of the toilet, the climate doesn't even work at all, that was dust and we called them before we left, but they re the answer to us.

Stay on April 13-15 2019 The only good thing about this hotel are the photos on the web site. We pay 89$ with Hotel.com, the room was a disappointment.The bathroom ceiling was leaking,the room was small and dirty. Outside the room a couple off mattress and furniture where left forgotten, blocking the access to the stairs.Overall horrible.
