“Extremely friendly and comfortable place to stay”
Reviewed March 31, 2012

Lovely hotel in handy position for sightseeing. Fantastic choices available for breakfast with lots of delicious fresh breads/savoury pastries, cheeses fruits etc. Hardworking, attentive and helpful staff. 'Silver package ' for off season travellers an amazing bargain. Lived up to all their promises-and more! Rooms characterful and comfortable, very clean and practical. Struggled a bit with shower which was not completely enclosed so water on floor in bathroom after every shower but staff always available to clean room in morning, if requested. Great relief to find such a super, well run and pleasant place to stay in Istanbul, a very large, busy and exotic city. We can thoroughly recommend this delightful hotel and look forward to returning in future.

Room Tip: No lift so lower floors better for less fit. Standard rooms quite large with large windows allowing...

It was our third trip to Istanbul. Firts time in this hotel but not the last time. A very nice oasis in the middle of the old town. A short walk to the main historical buildings, to the harbour or to the tram. The manager and all of the staff are very kindly and help you for privat trips or booking your special trips. We were with our friends for 3 nights in the first class rooms. This rooms and the bathroom are beautiful. The organisation of the airport transfer was perfect.

Room Tip: The hotel has special offers for 3 or 4 night. A lot of things are included and very nice rooms with...

The hotel is quite very . The staff very very kind (nice idea for a small buffet of biscuits
always available in the afternoon). The room was very cozy, comfortable and very clean
(no carpet). Breakfast is buffet, good and plentiful, prevails where the salty rather than sweet (eg croissants), fried eggs or omelets made ​​at the time. Also the position the hotel is strategically in the heart of Sultanahmet, within walking distance Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Topkapi Palace and Basilica Cistern and the bus stop tram. We shoot everything on foot, reaching the part new town, with no problems

This hotel is simply great for a city trip to Istanbul! It's very well located in the historical city centre. Aya Sofia, Topkapi Palace and the Blue Mosque are at walking distance. Still, it's quiet and not noisy.

The rooms are clean and the hotel is very cosy, it feels like home!! The restaurant and the lounge area are very nice. Breakfast is good and I loved the omelettes that are cooked to order. In the lounge area you can relax and enjoy Turkish snacks and drinks. Free WiFi is also available.

Last, but certainly not least: the staff is amazing and the service is great. The staff, especially Selcuk (reception) and Suat (restaurant) are wonderful! They were very helpful and friendly!

I highly recommend this hotel!

Our first trip to Istanbul; really enhanced by this wonderful little hotel. Very well presented with real character and lots of welcoming touches all around.

The courtyard area was spacious; and although it was snowing when we were there it would be a beautiful secluded spot in warmer times. The restaurant area was suoerb; with large mural photos of the city to whet our appetite for the day's sightseeing. The breakfasts were plentiful and varied, the omelettes cooked to order were our favourite!

Very attentive and courteous staff, and a perfect location just a couple of minutes from the Blue Mosque. Highly Recommended!
