“Nice hotel”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Clean and nice hotel, but quite a small room and one could hear the voices from the hallway quite well. Location is walking distance from tram station, but you have to walk uphill to get there. Lively neighborhood, we liked it. Good breakfast with some Turkish flavors. Overall good experience.

We had a great stay at this hotel. The rooms are newly refurbished. Wifi is free. The bathrooms are great. The girl Neda is in the restaurant is very helpful and friendly. The staff take care of all your wishes and can even arrange special treats for a good price.

A great hotel in Istanbul for the main sights, the tram and excellent fish restaurants. It is located in central Istanbul. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Also WiFI was available for free. The breakfast was very good with plenty of choice. The breakfast-room was on the roof top with a great view to Istanbul. I would definitly book this hotel again and again. It was really a great time in Istanbul.

Good hotel, friendly and helpfull staf. Located very convenient near blue mosque and aya sofia. Hotel is easily accesible by metro. The rooftop has a stuning view, which you can enjoy when having breakfast. Special thanks to Neda who helped us out and was very friendly!
We would definitely recommend the place to anyone else!

Very friendly people. Rooms are not big but they are very clean.
In walking distance to the tram to all touristic places..
Breakfast on the rooftop is very nice.
For eating, the area around the corner looks nice but watch the bill.

Room Tip: We had a room at the streetside was not noisy at all.

Good Hotel ideally situated for the main sights, the tram and fantastic fish restaurants. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, especially the reception staff and a young lady called Neda. Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice. the breakfast room was a roof top room and terrace with extensive views.

Room Tip: Our room was at the back of the hotel and very quiet, a haven from the hustle and bustle of non stop...
