“Comfortable, Clean, Friendly......Brilliant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

What a wonderful hotel. Situated in the Sultanahmet area just 5 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque.

We arrived early (around 9:45 am) and could not check in as the hotel had been full the night before. The response was simple: "Join us for breakfast" and the manager meant it as a complimentary gesture. So we sat on the balcony under the minarets of the Blue Mosque in the morning Turkish sunshine and enjoyed a wonderfully varied breakfast of both hot and cold, savoury and sweet dishes, a morning experience that was to be repeated every day of our stay. Meat, cheese, salad, fruit, yoghurt, honey, jam, bread, cakes and on and on and on... Scrambled egg and sausage are the hot options and, if you fancy it, the staff will fry a couple of eggs for you. Tea, coffee (including Turkish), orange and lemon juice are all available.

Our room was perfectly fine with a lovely view across the Bosphorous. Clean and comfortable with only one negative that was the size of the shower - not a lot of room to manoeuvre! However, generally the bathroom was a reasonable size and very clean. Nice lobby.

One thing to bear in mind is that the walk to the Blue Mosque and, indeed, all the major sites, while short is up a steep hill. Just something to bear in mind if you have any ambulatory problems but not generally an issue.

Two mosques will provide you with the call to prayer at 5am. Hey: You're in Istanbul - enjoy the haunting call and drift back to sleep when it finishes.

The management and staff are brilliant and are very happy to provide information and help whenever needed. Get them to organise you a private car to take you to the airport when leaving. €25 is more than you will pay in a standard taxi (€15?) but you won't have to deal with the usual (I'm sorry to say) rip-offs from the untrustworthy Istanbul taxi drivers. Our ride was there promptly and provided a very helpful and professional service.

I travel extensively on business and experience a lot of hotels both good and bad. Ultimate test: Would I stay there again? In a heartbeat!

I was there with a friend early April. Didn't really stay in because we were out most of the time. But that is why I like this hotel so much because it is so near to the everywhere! We can see the Blue Mosque from the rooftop terrace where we had breakfast. 7mnts walk from Sultanahmet tramlines. Room is very clean, good size bathroom and hot water. If I comeback to turkey, this is definitely where I will stay. And the staffs are helpful and friendly too, always with a smile

My husband and I stayed here April 18-26 2014. We had a warm welcome after arriving past midnight into a city we didn't know. The hotel arranged reliable transfer from Ataturk to the hotel. We had a lovely view from our room of an old Istanbul wall with open caves inhabited by seagulls which greeted us as well when we arrived. The roof terrace has an enchanting view of the Blue Mosque. The Erguvan free breakfast was excellent. I want to extend a special thanks to Millka (sp?) who was extremely attentive when we ate breakfast each morning. Also the front desk help Gigdem, Oner and Morad will very helpful. I would highly recommend if you are looking for a boutique experience and want to be near Sultanhamet. We could practically walk everywhere. I would stay there again for sure.

I checked into this Hotel on 17th April and on 18th April 2014 in a double room.The room was quiet good and clean. The staff in this hotel are very helpful.But the best thing about this hotel is the location.

The hotel was located right in the middle of all the important sites to be visited. We were so happy with our choice. From the airport on the European side, we took the subway and transfer to the tram, it took 45 minutes and then the walk is less then 10 minutes to the hotel. The room was comfortable and the breakfast was all right, nothing fancy but it did the job! The staff is really friendly. We had a nice stay!
