“What a wonderful hotel!”
Reviewed July 4, 2011

I really can't say enough good things about this beautiful hotel!

The location is perfect - on a sidestreet, just few minutes' walk from the Hippodrome, Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. The building itself is exquisite. Our room had soft sheets, silk curtains, and a lovely, sizeable bathroom to wash away our travels when we arrived. Perfect!

The staff are tremendously helpful, and ready to offer advice, or just a friendly cup of chay (tea). The entire building is incredibly restful. Someone (or lots of someones) have obviously put a huge amount of effort into getting the details right - and it shows.

What else? Free wifi (hurrah!), aircon (double hurrah!) - oh, and it's scrupulously clean. We were delighted by the whole experience, and would happily have stayed longer (or return again). Enjoy!
