We would highly recommend this hotel to everybody who wants to go to Istanbul.

We stayed at the hotel from the 8th to 12th of May 2018.

Excellent location, right next to Hagia Sophia, short walk from 2 tram stations. Staff are super friendly and helpful, and also very knowledgable, answering all of our questions, and giving great tips. Rooms are spacious for a city hotel and immaculate. Double Glazing in the windows helps to keep out the city sound. Breakfast is an absolute treat with so many options and very generous. The hotel also has a terrace overlooking the street and a back courtyard with a bar area. Best recommendation for Istanbul, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Egyptian Bazaar and Galata Tower all in walking distance.
Note - this is a city hotel with all the sights and sounds, best option for a city hotel that is small and cosy.

We arrived very early and after a very long taxi ride (who got lost multiple times) we were let out and walked a few metres before a very helpful staff member from the hotel met us to take our bags. We were greeted by the onsite manager who offered us a free wine as it took so long to get there and was a stressful trip...what a great start!

We checked into our gorgeous room which had an enormous balcony from where you could see the Blue Mosque.

This would have to be one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in and wished I could have taken the bed, the sheets, the pillows and the duvet home with me. It was so luxurious! The bathroom was small but functional however the old tube hairdryer was a disappointment for such a luxurious hotel. I would recommend a decent hairdryer to be added to the room.

The room was decorated beautifully and the amenities were great. We were only there for two nights and would have loved to have stayed there longer. Unfortunately we had a very early flight and we couldn't try out the breakfast.

The hotel was very handy and you could walk to any of the tourist attractions which we did. It was also very handy to numerous restaurants and bars and cafes.

I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay again. It's definitely worthy of 5 stars and I can't wait to return.

Room Tip: A deluxe suite with balcony had great views
