Reviewed November 30, 2013

This is a perfect place to stay if you want to explore the Sultanahmet, enjoy fabulous views over the area from the rooftop bar and breakfast room (fab breakfast! and great coffee!) and soak up the thrilling sounds of the call to prayer from the Blue Mosque and Hagia. Beautiful, simple, comfortable. very clean. You can see from the reviews that Tumay is a real star — offering genial and sincere hospitality above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks Tumay!

Happened onto this place through a recommendation in the Lonely Planet, Small, friendly hotel centrally located near the Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome, and Aya Sophya (all the must-see places, that is) in Sultanahmet. The hidden treasure (not so hidden if you get to know him) is the person manning the front desk, Tumay, a young fellow who radiates friendship and goodwill and is an excellent English speaker to boot (London accent, spent most of his life there). He will do all in his power to make your stay one of the most enjoyable ones you've had anywhere. Thanks so much, Tumay!!

İt felt like ı was at home with a very welcoming staff , the breakfast was a star it gave me a very good start to a long day so make sure you dont miss out the breakfast .They have a bar at the terrace it was one of the best views ı have seen,with a blue mosque and the marmara sea.The room was comfortable and they had free wfi in the room and air con so it was a relaxing room with a blue mosque view and the marmara sea. I also had a free pick up service from the airport becuase ı stayed for 4 nights. ı would highly reccomed this hotel.

I would not recommend this hotel, for various reasons. The room was shabby, the lobby was dull and uninteresting, and the location was very mediocre, as it faces an empty lot. The breakfast was really crummy -- stale food, ill cooked, flavorless. Yes, the view from the terrace is amazing - but that does not overcome the lousy decor and service. Also, you are so close to the big mosque that the muzzein call is deafeningly loud. Overpriced for what they offer.
