Stayed here for 3 nights in early December 2012. Rooms are somewhat small but clean and comfortable. The only downside are the wooden floors are a bit creeky, so you may hear your upstairs neighbor walking around. The location is very close to all of the important historic sites such as the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. I rarely bother to write a review on TripAdvisor but I made an exception for the outstanding service that the staff provided. Alejandro provided great recommendations for non-touristy restaurants to try out and lent me a 3 prong European converter so I could charge my laptop. Breakfast is a nice simple Turkish breakfast that I enjoyed.

Hotel was very good, food was very delicious and not fat. Our family really liked the clean food and service. A man from Reception, as far as I remember his name Recep, helped us a lot, very nice and warm turkish man. I really liked the hotel and its location, hopefully we could get back with family!

Very nice location. Only a few minutes away from main museums. We stayed here for two weeks and the rooms were very tidy and clean and comfortable. They have a very nice receptionist, named Recep, he helped us a lot to get along in Istanbul. We would visit this place definitely again and hope to meet the receptionist again.

We have arrived to this hotel and stuff was sleeping in the morning and we had to wait outside for nearly 30 minutes till he woke up. And after 20 min phone calls he said we can have the rooms for 60 euros and when we settled in the room price went up to 75 euro we still said ok. Than we said we will have someone coming after to stay with us (lady) he said it was ok than when my partner arrived they made problem and asked if we were married and asked for marriage certificate otherwise we could not stay in the room together. After arguing for a while we stayed in the room and in the morning no one was friendly to us. It was also noisy all nite. This is not the hotel to stay and we are not recommending it to anyone.... Stupid asking marriage certificate......

We really enjoyed our time there and I was particularly impressed by the friendliness of all the staff, their kindness and warmth. A special thanks to Cem for some very interesting conversations.
The location was excellent, atmosphere was great. The area is very cozy, neighbors are an welcomed addition :-). The hotel definitely fits you if you like vintage or are a golden age nostalgic.
