We stood at 504 room with breathtaking sea view from a balcony. Great location (short distance to main attractions). The room is very nice, clean, but a bit old. Breakfast with local dishes was delicious. There is no elevator and no everyone would be happy to walk upstairs to 5th floor. They prefer cash for room payment.

This hotel is close to Cemberlitas and also Sultanahmet Tram Station, can be easily found if you used to navigate based on a map. Otherwise, ask the hotel staff to pick you up at one of the stations (or at the airport). From the tram stations, you have to walk downhill (or uphill upon your departure) through stone-paved streets, so be prepared to get a bit exhausted (even if you are not carrying any luggage). Located in a quite neighbourhood, which is a walking distance to Sultanahmet area, the main tourist attraction in Istanbul. Great staffs. Great hotel. Stayed 3 nights in their Budget Double Room (with ensuite bathroom) located on the basement area. Room is spacious and spotlessly clean, with a comfortable bed. Great value for great accomodation. Highly recommended.

With a homely and helpful base it was easy to discover Istanbul. Friendly staff who can very well communicate in English. Simple yet comfortable set up. Pretty breakfast room with a garden and a small terrace giving a view of Marmara sea. Walking distance from most of the historical attractions like Blue mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi palace and other museums. Grand bazaar also nearby.

Not only Good breakfast with nice view but also, has a reasonable price . Cleanliness Room. But hard to go to hotel with large luggage because you have to walk down hill and the street is not good enough.And little bit far form Tram. But you can walk to Blue Mosque within 5 mins that's very close.

I'm very satisfy with this hotel.

great location. 5 -7 mins walking distance from historical places. very friendly staff and can communicate in English which is a luxury in Istanbul. Also, they will go out of their way to help you. we stayed in room 303 which is located on the street side. simple yet complete hotel. terrace has a good view of marmara sea. sound of seagulls are annoying first thing in the morning but nature lovers would love that. we stayed their fir 3 days. overall very good experience.

It took us about 15 minutes to find the hotel after disembarking from the tram station near blue mosque, with the steep roads certainly working our calves.the room was ok, although we were placed in one on the 5th floor and had to take the stairs all the way up.the furniture was a bit dated, but the room was clean. The tv also did not work.
The breakfast spread was good, and it was one of the highlights of this hotel.
Istanbul was a great city to visit and i will cetainly return,but will rather stay in a place closer to the main attractions as its too far to walk. I would return only if nothing better or closer is available.
