“adequate hotel”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

A well located hotel 5 minute walk from gulhane tram stop & close to many of the tourist attractions including many restaurants.It is a general run of the mill adequate city centre hotel that you will find in most cities. Ok lobby with decent seating with a seperate bar area again with comfortable seating & flat screen tv.The bedroom size was as expected for this standard of hotel being fairly small but have stayed in smaller rooms in other cities. It had a decent bed small multi channel tv air conditioner minibar & had a small en suite. Breakfast was on the top floor with a good view & was adequate.Staff were helpful.Nothing really stands out in this hotel but it does the job

This was our first time in Istanbul. The hotel is excellently located for many of the tourist attractions and near to a tramway stop. Room was clean and adequate with minibar, TV and telephone, and the bathroom worked OK. Breakfast was good and dishes were replenished on a regular basis. Staff were very helpful, both at breakfast and in reception. There were views of the harbour and Topkapi Palace from the breakfast room on the terrace.

we booked an overnight stay to istanbul from sunny beach in bulgaria so had no idea what hotel we were going to stay at, the rooms were pretty small but fine as it was only for 1 night but for any longer i think you would have struggled to store your clothes and suitcase, the bathroom was also small, there was free wifi which unfortunatly we didnt find out until about an hour before we left as there was only 1 tv channel in english so would have been ideal if we had knew about it the night before, there was a bar to relax in before we got picked back up which was nice, there was a basic breakfast available, it was very central to most tourist places to either walk to or get the tram, there was a long row of resturants right outside the hotel entrance

This was a hotel booked by our tour company and we booked an extra night there pre-tour. Our room was small but adequate and unlike other reviewers we had no problems with cleanliness. They provide a good breakfast (Turkish style) with good views from the top floor breakfast room. Location is excellent being only 150metres from the tram, 200 metres from Topkapi Palace, 300 metres from Eminonu Harbour and there are wall to wall restaurants right outside the door. On our return to Istanbul we booked into another hostel only 50 metres away at half the price that was much better value

The rooms stink of cigarettes, overwhelmingly so. They were quite small as well. The food there was not bad, a good free Internet connection but the worst thing was the steep, dangerous spiral stairs.

We stayed at this hotel for one night. The staff was very friendly and spoke english well, and the lobby was nice. The breakfast was good (but not the eggs). The room was horrible! The floor and the carpet was full of hair and the bathroom was not clean at all. We actually had to stand on a towel in the shower because it was so dirty. Also there was a sewage smell in the room that came at regular intervals. We would not recommend this hotel.

This is one of many little hotels smack in the middle of the Old City. What an oasis. The rooms are small, there's just one tv station in English but since that's BBC that's all I needed to get world news. The der gentleman in the reception speaks English and is very helpful. Immediately outside there are restaurants and shops and l the historical sites. Salming distance to the Blue Mosque, grand Bazar, spice market etc. The tram is just s block away. Great place! Family stayed at a hotel costing more than double--Erbil was better in location, price, English speaking staff and pretty much any other way
