Free wifi, great breakfast, good location, polite staff. Nice hotel for the money.The hotel is close to the Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. I recommend this hotel.The only downside is parking which is located far from the hotel.

Stayed here in October. Only a 10 minute walk from sultanahment and other historical places. Good location to grand bazzar. Good hotel room sizes are a little small but overall great service, towels and clean sheets everyday. Would stay again.

Nice hotel for the money. Small rooms, but I believe of average size considering the area and price. Clean hotel, noisy at night. Not a boutique hotel though. Staff was friendly and the breakfast excellent- quite diverse and lots of stuff. One thing though- expensive drinks in the lobby and would of course not allow us to drink our own wine, corking fee or not:)

The location of this boutique hotel is pretty much central to everything. As soon as you step outside, you can shop, eat, or catch the metro to anywhere you want to go.

The room itself could have been the smallest room I've ever stayed in. It was not much bigger than the size of it's full size bed. Although it was squeaky clean, there was the smell of sewage permeating from the moment you stepped into the hotel itself. I believe staff is aware of this issue, because our hotel room bathroom contained those little odor eaters that you find in public restrooms. I'm not sure if it's the hotel itself or sewage from the street... either way, it was not fun.

The reception and breakfast (which was included), were ok (no smiles, just business). The bellhop however, was very nice.

Tip: Reception cannot exchange money currency. Just go to the nearest atm.

Probablynthe most comfortable bed in the whole of turkey! The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was fantastic. We received a free upgrade as the staff did not organize an airport transfer as requested but the taxis are efficient so it wasn't a crisis. Try and avoid the dinner cruise of the Bosporus with Bosphorous lines. Awful food and not good value for money.

This is formally a 3 star hotel, but comparing this place to the previous hotel that I have been to in Istanbul, I believe this place is actually much better than the so called 4 stars. Do not be deceived by star numbers only!
Also very clean and well priced. Excellent location and very nice brekkie.
Understandably, this hotel is not as big as famous 5 star hotels, but If you consider how much you are paying for, It is certainly worth it!
