Reviewed January 27, 2013

WE stayed in this hotel for 5 nights and could not fault it Being elderly we had requested a ground floor room which was made available and was extremely comfortable. We could not manage stairs to the rooftop terrace, so breakfast was made available every morning at a table on the pavement, which was surprisingly quiet. A staff member always seemed to be on hand to assist my wife up the front steps.Day trips and an airport taxi were arranged efficiently and well priced.The hotel itself is extremely modern. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: We had requested a ground floor room, which was at the back and extremely quiet

Stayed here on for 4 nights recently and was more than happy with the hotel. Our double room was a little on the small size but clean and tidy with a great bathroom. Breakfast is on the roof terrace several floors up (no lift) and was more than adequate. The hotel's best feature though is its location, really close to the Hagia Sophia and blue mosque and is on a really nice street full of great bars and restaurants. Would certainly stay there again.

I was in Istanbul with my son in May 2012 and stayed in Broken Column for the location, really all great historical objects of sultanahmet with the few minutes walkdistance. Also the hotel is situated on the street with many nice restaurants and cafe ( for examle, one step from here is located oceans7 restaurant and cafe - i reccomend). We lived in triple room - very clean, beatiful, with new equipment, good beds, two windows ( the noise from the street is not problem if it closed) and small balcony - this room is named "Istanbul" . Breakfasts were standart like everywhere but fresh and good. Very comfortable that during all day and night you can drink hot tea at the lobby without additional money. If you didnt bring the laptop you can use the computer near reception - no problem. And of course the most excellent thing - is staff, I felt myself like in family, thank you for all,guys

Room Tip: All rooms have their own names, I very liked room Istanbul on the 2 nd floor with central location...

We stayed here a few weeks back on the way to India, the hotel is set right slap bang in the middle of the old city and in the heart of the tourist attractions.

Check in was prompt and efficient and the guy carried our bags to the room, the room itself was clean warn and had plenty hot water and fresh white towels.

The breakfast was a mix of continental and a hot and cold buffet with lashings of tea, coffee and fruit juices. The hotel let us leave our bags in reception and organised a taxi for us for the airport.

If you are looking for an affordable comfortable stay in old Istanbul then book here.

A perfect hotel in old town Istanbul, in the quality of 4 star hotels, me and my costumers were in Turkey for a visit , i have arranged this hotel for their stay.
It was the best decision we made, they just loved the hotel and they wanted to stay longer at the hotel than spending time outside :D
Special Thanks to Mr. Pasha and Mr. Orhan for their kind hospitality.
Thanks
