The hotel is centrally located by the Cistern, Topkapi, Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sofia. You can't really ask for a more central location from a purely tourist perspective. Like most of the hotels in that area, the rooms are very small and the hotel is a bit dated. There is a free breakfast included, as with all hotels in Istanbul, but the breakfast was just ok. The best part of hotel is undoubtedly it's roofdeck with views--the saving grace. However, it looks over onto some construction that could be cleaned up. I guess if you are on a budget and need a central stay, it's fine. Customer service was lackluster, but again, it was a budget hotel.

I and my wife choose this hotel because of their positive reviews on Tripadvisor. From begining to end of our stay we did not see any negative side. Hotel is very clean and housekeping Aysa chenged everyday our sheets and towels.Breakfast is not buffet but taste, tea, coffee, orenge juise, eggs,olive,tometo,chees etc. Hotel very close by Cisterna, world famouse Hagia Sophia, Topkapi palace and Mosque Blue. You can walk everywhere only 2 munits. Grand Bazaar 8 or 10 munits far from hotel.and dont forget to go roof top terrace it has amazing view.Old city sultanahmat restaurant little bit expensive but Palmiye restaurant belong to Ares they made us% 10 discount. Food espeacily testi kebab very nice than you chef. We highly recomment this hotel.
