“Wonderful staff, excellent location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

A very relaxing, comfortable and friendly place to stay only a few minutes walk from a lot of the major historic sites, and the tramway for further exploring Istanbul. OK, it may not be for those who want a five star monster palace, but it has all the advantages of a well looked after, well managed small hotel - it's cozy and quiet and you get looked after personally and professionally. The rooms are very comfortable - the front ones with a small balcony - reasonably sized and well furnished. Most importantly the staff are so friendly and helpful - you
feel like you are staying at a friend's house. The food is simple and healthy - a good selection of local olives, fruits, cheeses, pastries. A great experience and somewhere we will return to when next in Istanbul.

Room Tip: Room 108 with a view over the water.

A very cozy, convenient and clean place with very friendly, helpful and happy people!!! A certain comeback to a beautiful and vivid city!!!
Especially the front rooms are vey nice and comfortable! Only the food service needs a bit of enrichment...
It's such a clean and quiet small hotel that certainly all visiting families will adore!!!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the front street are very comfortable and not noisy at all!

Great location for all the tourist spots. The staff are very helpful and endeavour to make your stay as comfortable as they can in the circumstances.The variation / configuration of the rooms leaves a lot to be desired. We stayed in 2 rooms both of which were tiny and the bathrooms had mouldy showers which did not function properly. Like all of Istanbul they do have a problem with ferrel cats who often wander through the hotel !
This is definitely not a 4 star hotel more like 2 to 3 very basic and in need of some updating to bring it up to scratch.

Room Tip: Rooms a bit hit and miss, ask to look before you commit. Room directly above reception a non starter...

If you are out to visit the main tourist attractions in Sultanahmet (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia), then this little hotel is a great spot. It's clean, nice rooms, helpful and friendly staff, and also close to restaurants.

A fabulous location....spotless room...smiles and friendly service....it couldn't be better. This boutique hotel has small modern rooms with well designed bathrooms....great water pressure and heat! Breakfast is plentiful and served with pride. Consider this hotel your home away from home! We spent four nights here....three at another hotel in the area....and the Divalis Hotel was 50 Euro a night cheaper for comparable room and service!

The hotel really helped us have a great time in Istanbul. All the staff were always happy to give advise about where to go and help us explore some of the other areas in Istanbul and some great dinner recommendations. Gave us afternoon tea when ever we were around. Always greeted us with a big smile and really valued us being there.

Room Tip: The top room allows you to have the balcony.
