It's pretty much close to everything. Great bus system near the hotel that travels up & down the street frequently if you don't like walking. You see a lot more if you walk. Also not far from Blue Mosque. Suggest an inexpensive ferry boat trip to visit surrounding places with quaint beaches with nice restaurants. Quaint, quiet, welcoming & friendly...

Not a lot to add really. The hotel is located a 2 minute walk away from Istanbul's Grand Bazaar. It's perfect for visiting the old town. The hotel has a lot of chintz but it suits. The room was clean and comfortable with a fast WiFi and good bathroom. The breakfast was pretty good. All in all - a pleasure...

You would hard pushed to find a more perfectly located hotel for seeing Istanbul's Old City sights. A few minutes walk from a tramway station and the Grand Bazaar. A small and friendly hotel. Ask for a room on the 4th floor, in the eaves for a better view. Be assured, you do get used to the ceiling after bumping...

This hotel has such a nice and chill atmosphere and the staff treat you so well, always with a smile on their faces, you feel like home immediately. I love the harem style, and it's also very central with a tram stop right around the corner. Super great value for the money!
