We stayed here for five nights. It was great. Good breakfast with a fantastic view and good sized room for our family of four including two teenagers who were pleased to have their own single beds. Only problem on a couple of occasions was that the shower was lukewarm. Other than that we had a great stay. Would definitely recommend it and would stay again.

Excellent location, just 10 minutes walk from major sightseeings of the city. Staff are amazing, friendly and helpful. Special thanks to the hotel manager and his staff Nato and Lika for making our stay very comfortable. Hotel manager eagerly helped on every technical detail or issue we needed to arrange. Breakfast was very lovely at the hotel terrace with fantastic view over the city. What else to say - would recommend the hotel to friends and will visit yazar hotel when i'm back in Istanbul.

I've booked this hotel online cuz images of the rooms and hotel itself were so impressive. But I was worried about the real conditions. On arrival the reality met my expectations. Location is excellent for tourists, easy walking distance to all major sights like hagia sofia, sultan ahmet mosque, grand bazaar, floating fish restaurant, Bosphorus Cruise tour ferry jetty. The next biggest advantage is city view from the terrace: you can see the bridge, european and asian parts of istanbul. Staff was very very friendly, kind and helpful, offers free tea 24 hours. Breakfast was amazing especially different kinds of FRESH fruits. Color of rooms energize your mood.

The hotel was located at a walking distance to almost everything in Old istanbul - blue mosque, hagia sofia, topkapi palace etc and had nice large well done up rooms...the view from the terrace was beautiful...and most important -every single member of the staff, right from the cleaning lady to the manager and the owner, were extremely accommodating and friendly...they did not say no to almost anything that we asked for.....overall a very very good and comfortable stay right in the centre of the city :))

Everything about the hotel was great. Location is easy to get to. Very close to tram and ferry stations which is very useful for tourists. Walking distance from the bazaars, restaurants, cafes, electronic and souvenir shops. Great shawarma and waffle joints very close by. The hotel itself is very clean. Room service is there everyday with clean bedsheets, towels and toiletries. The staff is very helpful and speak good english and will guide you for directions. The terrace has a beautiful view with one of the best breakfasts. Frrshly made omelets and turkish coffee. The terrace is opened the whole day and guests can enjoy the view with drinks and tea. Would recommend it to family and friend and would definitely stay there again :)
