“A pleasure at any time”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

I stayed there for a week and it was a pleasure. Especially I would like to emphasise the active support and helpfulness of the personnel!
Another highlight was the breakfast buffet with fresh herbs and delicious rose jam!
... and the location is unbeatable.

Very polite and helpful staff (all speak very good English) with cosy and clean rooms (ours had a beautiful view of the Bosphorus); buffet breakfast has a good selection with local produce; above all: the hotel is within walking distance of all of the Sultanahmet landmarks.

A very nice hotel at a great location within a short walking distance to the so called "must see's" of istanbul...at night the street is very quiet so no problems with good sleeping... if you flight goes to sabiha gockan and you travell budget ( bus an metro from airport) you need about 1 1/2 hours. ask for a airport shuttle...staff is very friendly and will help you....attention if you party at beyoglu the best place to have a great night in istanbul you must know the is no late night tram...walking distance from centre beayouglu to hotel about 30-45 min....we walked it twice so ists ok ;-)

I stayed at this charming little boutique hotel for 5 nights over Christmas. I had never been to Istanbul before (and may never get another chance) so wanted to make sure to see the major sites: Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, the Cistern and be close to Sultanahmet and transportation to get to Taksim and the ferries to the Asian side. The hotel was a great location for a travel base. The staff, which all spoke great English, was attentive and helpful. The desk staff often helped me route my daily excursions. The breakfast was a great way to start the day. Lots of delicious choices including honeycomb, fruits, pastries, yogurt. I had read reviews of the hotel before booking and knew that the rooftop offered nice water views so took my breakfast up one day. Was a little chilly, but glad I went up to check it out. One tip, don't turn your back on the seagulls. If I'm ever lucky enough to be able to return to Istanbul I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I thought about getting a seaside view but figured that I wouldn't be in the room much. But I e...
