Stayed there for 5 nights, and i must say it was a very pleasant stay. The boss and the people working at the hotel are extremely nice, very friendly. The guys working there are soo funny, had a great time, very caring and there hospitality is amazing. The hotel is only 2 mins walk away from the iconic locations. Will definitely stay there again and would recommend anyone who is planning to visit Istanbul to stay there.

Stayed here for 2 nights in June 2013. Hotel is a budget hotel with small room, but you get exactly what you pay for and although small, everything was clean and no issues with hot water.

The location of the hotel is very good, and you can walk to almost all the main historical sites in Sultanameht. Yildrim (the manager) did his utmost best to make us feel welcome and always had good tips on what to do and where to eat.

Breakfast was above average and much better than expected. Our flight back home was at midnight and although we checked out the morning, they gave a room to shower and freshen up for free before the flight.

I would definitely recommend this hotel for your trip!!

when ı see the hotel first in the begining ı was expecting to see bigger and more luxury.. but it was still nice and wonderfull experiance for me .. because hotel stuffs was great ,they help us about every information that what we need a..location was really great ,after 300 metres you would be just infront of blue mosque(which is one of most important historical place to see) and 200 metres you are just in front of hagia sophia museum its also incrediable and most important historical districs are just wals distance and also sea side is close to hotel (we like to run in the morning around boshporus.. price wasnt expensive when you compare with other hotels.. its a budget hotel and exactly you would get what you pay that is why ı would higly recomment that hotel to everyone.and even now we start to plain our next trip agean turkey and probably we gonna stay in that hotel agean.. thanks guys you did take care of us very well:).. and dont forget to visite also to see grand bazaar that is one of most biggest shopping center fo the world
