“History of Ottoman and Byzantium”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

We felt the long history of Ottoman, Byzantium and others. If we could have seen and learned about Byzantium much more, we were more happy. Wish Istanbul City administrative to develop the historic sites more.

“Small excellent hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

The room was big enough, clean and with a very nice view. The hotel is just few walking minutes from all most interesting sites in old Istanbul. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

“Old city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

The old city was better than advertise and an excellent example of preservation of the palaces and mosque of the Byzantine and Ottoman empire
