Travelling alone, I booked this hotel for 2 reasons, one, it was a good price and 2, it was in an outstanding location. Never having visited Istanbul before I was a little nervous about what to expect, but I was absolutely delighted with the entire experience. Its is in a bit of a back street, (5 minutes walk uphill to the main street), but once inside the door it is a delightful modern boutique hotel (it only opened a couple of months before I arrived, so its very new).
The staff are utterly amazing, friendly, they speak very good English and are all very helpful. My room was sparkling clean, well appointed in Turkish/Western style, and had a beautiful huge balcony from which I could see (more than a glimpse but not a panoramic view) of the Bosphorus sea. Breakfast was provided in a nice dining room.
The location is 10 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and hagia sophia, and 10 minutes from the Grand Bazaar (you MUST go there). So all up, I found staying here a wonderful experience. The hostess, Helin, is completely charming.
I will go back to Istanbul, and I will stay here again without hesitation. Perfect for solo or couples.
