“Gem in Istanbul Hotel Scene”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

I had no expectations at all when i arrived at this hotel. The rate indicated it must be good hotel. From Arrival to departure this hotel was simply wonderful. The room was spacious, fully equipped with all necessities a traveller requires. The hotel was stylish, without going over board. Aydin who was working at the reception most nights we were there was friendly, helpful and informative.
The major plus point of this hotel is its superb location. I could not have chosen a better one. You step out of the hotel and you are on the main Galata shopping area that is full of life. You are close to the Tunnel which takes you down to the bridge which means you are basically in sultanahmet and all the attractions it offers. Galata offers shopping, nightlife, restaurants, pubs, and the best people watching you can hope for.
I loved this property, can not find a single fault and would like to thank the team and the hotel for making my trip an amazing one.
thank you!

Room Tip: the room on the main street might be a little noisy...

Stylish designed boutique hotel with a nice restaurant, comfortable rooms and good atmosphere for a low price!
Didn't rate the hotel as excellent because:
Beds were very hard- but I suppose some people like that.
The fabulous bathroom was designed without good light above the mirror to put make up on... they have to do something about that!
Wifi didn't have a strong signal at smartphone on the third floor (where our room was).

Room Tip: Ask for large windows!

Great design suite, stayed for a night. Had one of the best bathrooms and the bedrooms in the small hotel category amongst all the location we stayed in Istanbul.

The heating system was very loud in the bedroom, was disturbing our rest. Also the room is dark but its a great resting place to return to after an eventful day.

Beautiful and stylish new hotel in a perfect location to explore this wonderful city of Istanbul. We were surprised by the classy interior for the relatively low price we've paid. Rooms vary quite a bit, some are spacious,some a bit smaller, some even have a view of the water. Very clean. Be aware that this hotel is in a very lively part of town so bring your earplugs if you want to sleep with open windows. All in all - I would always come back to this hotel and recommend it to friends.
