My wife and I stayed for 6 nights here during our first ever Istanbul trip. The place is well decorated with Ottoman colours and furniture. Tughra means the Seal of the Ottoman Sultans which is depicted in the monogram of the hotel. The rooms are a bit compact but good enough to spend the night in. We were first placed in the basement but requested a room on the second floor which the Manager agreed to. The bed was very comfortable and within a 19 bed hotel it was very quiet at night. The hotel is in a little alleyway devoid of any vehicle traffic and noisy neighbourhood. The trek to the core of all the attractions takes about 10 minutes up the hilly terrain so better to be in your runners. The rooms were smartly cleaned daily and the shower, AC and WIFI connection were excellent. The three storey hotel does not have an elevator. The breakfast in the spacious dinning hall was adequate and one could order any type of freshly made eggs. Mert, the young manager was very helpful, spoke good English and always had a smile on his face. Right behind the hotel through the alleyway is the Bosphorus seafront. Make sure you walk along it for some fresh breeze. This hotel is not a bad place if you can get a good deal depending on the season.
