I was at this hotel twice. The place of the hotel is perfect: you can reach on foot all objects of interest in the old town of Istanbul, the main market places are also near, and tram and buss stops as well. The hotel itself is butique style and is situated in the cosy ancient street in which you can feel specifics of Istanbul street life and culture. The exceptional atmosphere is created not only by ancient buildings, good service but by hotel staff as well. Sales manager Ayhan Salur is especially kind and helpful. He helped us to find all places we wanted to visit, explained how to get there and arranged our trips, reccomend some good restaurants to taste local food and helped everytime when we had questions. It is really worth to visit this hotel if you want to feel culture and street life of ancient Istanbul.
