I spent a week in this hotel and loved it. The location was so close to everything in the area. It only took 5 minutes to walk to the Blue Mosque and from there an easy walk to just about anywhere. I love to walk so I walked everywhere. I found it easy to walk down to the harbor and the Egyptian Spice Bazaar and also as far as the amazing Suleymaniye Mosque, which is often over looked because everyone heads to the Blue Mosque. Topkapi Palace and Saint Sophia are both within a few minutes walk.
There are many great restaurants in the area and I always stopped to chat and became friendly with everyone in the area. So each day when I set out it was nice to have people call out a greeting to me by my name.
I was travelling on my own and felt safe at all times of the day and night.
My hotel room was very clean and comfortable. The rooms are not huge but that is common for the small hotels in this area. The staff were very pleasant and incredibly helpful.
Breakfast was a great especially as the room had the most amazing views over the city and the harbor.
If I return to Istanbul I will definitely stay here again.
