“You feel history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

When walking around the Sultameht district you can see and feel the more than 3500 years of Istanbul history. Especially you should go down to the excavation of the ancient Roman Harbor dated 400 bc, it is down at the connstruction site of the new subway line.

“History of Ottoman and Byzantium”
4 of 5 stars 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 stars 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.
