If it's location you're after for all the local attractions then this is your place. Rooms are a little cramped however they are clean. Breakfast is not bad and staff are curteous to the required level but no more than that. Didn't really try the hotel food menu as we ate out most of the time.
Local cuisine was not very good but one stop away on the tram is Gulhane, where there are some really lovely Turkish restaurants. And some really nice shops for souvenirs.

Room Tip: Ask for views of the Blue Mosque

What an amazing and memorable stay.
It was our first time in Istanbul, and what a warm welcome we received!
Our room was stunning, with a lovely balcony and spectacular view, overlooking the blue mosque!
The hospitality, delicious food and free Turkish delights made our stay all the more special.

We will definitely be back in summer!

Was a bit worried when I stepped out of the taxi a hundred meters away, the worries ended when I entered the lobby and met with their extremely friendly & helpful staff (Tina, Tamara & Nuri to name few). I had a very nice & clean room decorated in an old style, with an excellent view at the old city and Bosporus, the hotel is 200 m away from Divanyolu Main Street, public transportation, and a walking distance to the Grand Bazar, Topkapi & other attractions. Breakfast at roof top restaurant with its beautiful sceneries, and rich selection is a perfect start for your day. I will certainly recommend this hotel to all my friends.

Room Tip: Best rooms ar at 5th floor sea view

Lovely hotel over looking Sultan Ahmet with stunning views of the beautiful mosques and the Bosphorus. Views from our room were breath-taking 510, and from breakfast room on the terrace, absolutely amazing. Staff are very welcoming and helpful, beakfast a feast.
The bathroom was bizzare and needs to be brought up to rest of hotel standards, that was disappointing. Will definately be returning to this hotel in future.

Room Tip: Room 510 for views

This hotel is in a great location for all the local attractions. Rooms are clean and the rooftop restaurant has amazing views of the blue mosque and sea. On the downside the walls are very thin and you can hear the guests staying next door snore and when they are using the bathroom. We stayed on the 4th floor of 5 with the restaurant on the 6th floor. The breakfast was fine and staff are curteous. The local cuisine isn't much to write home about but the next stop down via tram Gulhane has some pretty good Turkish restaurants.
