We were so pleased by choosing this hotel, closed by many attractions Istanbul can offers. Few minutes walking distance from tram station T1 Eminonu – Gulhane Park and spicy bazaar, 25 minutes to Taxim square passing Galata Bridge.
The hotel is small but pleasant, with a nice and welcome atmosphere, located on a pedestrian street full of restaurants. We arrived earlier but the hotel’s staff just made a room ready for us. Our goal being to visit as much as possible for a 4 days staying and not laying on the bed we booked just a standard twin beds room, this one being room 402 with a nice and small terrace. For those looking for more comfort there are different types of rooms, especially located on the 5th floor I guess.
Our room was small but welcoming, with relaxing colours. There is a mini bar, TV with different channels in different languages, individual A/C. The bathroom was very small, few toiletries and slippers were available.
Good cleaning services, the towels were daily changed.
The restaurant located on the terrace at the 6th floor offers a good variety of cold and hot dishes.
The front office personnel are very nice, professional and helpful. We’d got information about the best place to change money, were to go and out to visit, they arranged daily excursions for us with a pick-up and come back service directly from/to the hotel.
They also arrange for us a transfer from Ataturk airport- hotel- airport for a total price of 65EUR/2 persons. The fare could be negotiated; it is something specific for Turkey. We have no negotiation skills so probably we paid more than usual fare .Any way I think it is a good decision to arrange transfers through reception because the taxi drivers generally trick, choosing long ways.
