Cozy boutique hotel is perfectly situated in heart of the old city part of sultanahmet. It is right off of the main street which has plenty of cafés restaurants, shops and tram stop. Plus the main tourist sites like blue mosque, hagia Sofia, Basilica cistern, grand bazaar, topkapi palace and my favorite hamam are all less than ten minutes walking distance. I was able to see all the main sites within one day. It is a perfect location to stay and if you only have a short time in Istanbul.
The hotel staff is extremely hospitable and helpful. When I arrived I received a warm welcome with Turkish coffee and a snack. The receptionist helped me plan my next two days in Istanbul without me even asking him to do so. He sat down with me with the map and showed me all the sites that were within walking distance. He also made some great recommendations for places to eat.
The room is clean but small. It can accommodate 1 to 2 people as long as you don't have more than two big pieces of luggage to put in room. Free coffee, tea in room. There is also a safe and a small fridge with minibar.
BEST part of hotel is the hotel rooftop restaraunt that has breakfast buffet with the most breathtaking view of the blue mosque, Hagia Sophia and Bosphorus!!! Come for the view!! The breakfast buffet has wife selection of pastries, yogurt, chess, olives, eggs, cereal and fruit. Ate my favorite yogurt with homemade apricot jam and fruit...yummy!
Thanks trip advisor for helping me make a another great vacation decision!
