“Excellent value fr money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Perfectly situated hotel. Room immaculate and quiet overlooking coutyard; bowl of fruit on arrival and fresh drinking water provided each day. Watch out for hard bed though. Superb breakfasts overlooking bosphorous. The staff here are very friendly, helpful and expert at their jobs. An altogether excellent stay and especially good if you can get a 'room deal' as we did through an agent.

Room Tip: courtyard rooms at the back are quiet

To zeytinburnu station then change ( u have to use a new token in order to take the second train) get off in beyazit station the hotel is
About 150 m from the station.the trip takes about 45 minute.the room is a bit small but good enough if u don't have a big luggage

This hotel is in a great location, just a few minutes from the Grand Bazaar and 10 min walk from the major historical sites. The tram stop is 2 mins walk from the hotel and whisks you into centre in minutes for just 3Lira (£1)

The staff at the hotel are friendly and professional and are keen to help with any queries. The breakfast at the hotel is excellent - with a vast selection of choices to suit everybody's taste,

Rooms are spacious and luxurious with nice extra touches - fruit bowl, complimentary water, quality toiletries etc

The terrace bar is stunnng, especially on a clear evening, giving spectacular views over Istanbul.

The hotel has a lovely swimming pool & fitness facilities and also facilities for treatments

I would definitely recommend this hotel and will definitely return here when I next visit Istanbul

The hotel is good, well renovated and located in the very good location. But the staff has big communication problem.
The transfer service organized by the hotel is terrible. We sent a flight details to the hotel and I called the day before to the hotel to meet us with the children at the airport. For unknown reasons the hotel either missed or ignored our messages. At the beginning it was promised that one way to or from the airport would be free, later the hotel reservation refused that option and did not sent the taxi at all, although we agreed by phone to pay 25 euro. So we had to go around several transfer services in the airport to find a big car ourselves with two children, and this was more expensive. The reservation manager apologized for mistake and inconvenience and promised to send fruits to the room as a compliment. At that meeting he also promised to organize the transfer back to the airport, but he did not mention about the free payment.
So the transfer was organized and the taxi driver asked to pay 20 euro, we were surprised how modest and honest was the driver. BUT WE WERE MISTAKEN! Later in the airport I checked my e-mails and found a little message from the manager that the transfer to airport would be free. Nobody in the reception during the check out told us about it, and the taxi driver took advantage to charge us for free transfer 20 euro, which was 5 euro less than conventional price.

We told several times that the air conditioning in one of our rooms does not work, but it was not fixed until our check out.
The breakfast is mediocre and there is no normal coffee, only Nescafé. Forget about ham and sausages, only cheese, honey and water melon.

Hotel's location is very convenient to explore the city centre, with main attractions within a 15 min walking range (and we had a pushchair!).If needed, the tram stop is on the doorstep. Staff was very helpful and even helped us booking restaurants. Decent room and clean bathroom. Breakfast was also very honest.
