“Worth going, see from yourself and you will submit how it was !”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

Everything was great, looking forward to go again someday!

Great location, the staff was really helpful, nothing to complain about.

We were a couple and the second day they made the bed with the towels as hearts and placed some flowers there, it was really nice !

Room Tip: We stayed on the third floor, a room with a balcony, it was great! If it bothers, pick a room on...

This is an excellent hotel, with very kind, helpful and friendly staff. Our rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet - especially nice linen on the beds. Downstairs there is a pretty garden where you can sit under the trees and relax, and a nice restaurant where a huge array of breakfast options is set out. The location is good, near the Blue Mosque and the beautiful little Aya Sophia Mosque (dont miss this un-touristy gem). A big bonus of the hotel is the fact that tea and coffee, cakes and fruit are freely available from midday on. We loved being able to come in tired from sightseeing and flop down in the garden with coffee and cake.

The hotel is perfectly situated within walking distance of many attractions in the old city. My husband and I enjoyed our stay. Our room although small was comfortable and clean and had an old world charm about it. My husband did need to take care as our room had a low ceiling and he is taller than average. The same goes for some of the doorways. The staff were friendly, helpful and made us feel very welcome. Breakfasts were a veritable feast. The courtyard garden area was a fabulous place to sit and relax.

We stayed here for 4 nights and our stay was very comfortable. The location of the hotel is very convenient, altough it can be a little difficult to locate the first time as it is situated in the back lanes of the old town. Just a few minutes walk to the Blue Mosque, we found everything to be at walkable distance.

Our room was lovely, it was a little on the smaller side but very tastefully decorated with traditional chandeliers. There was also a bottle of wine and a bowl of fruits waiting for us when we checked in.

The breakfast was very good, it included traditional turkish breakfast items like cheese, olives, cold meats etc. as well as the made to order omelettes. I liked the garden terrace just outside the restaurant which provided some outdoor seating as well. there was tea, coffee and cakes in the seating area by the reception available all day.

the reception staff was helpful and provided all the information about local attractions. I would definitely stay here if I go back to Istanbul.

This small hotel offers a really warm welcome! From the moment we booked and were told we would be picked up from the airport (unexpected) till the moment we left staff were helpful and friendly - and happy to have interesting conversations about Turkey. Every question about Istanbul, its transport, the historical sites were answered. They were sympathetic to our several bad experiences with Istanbul's taxi-drivers and - more usefully - offered to organise reliable cabs to collect us wherever we happened to be. No hotel has ever offered this in my experience. There are lots of outside stairs (through pleasant leafy terraces) and many very friendly cats. I don't want to mention names of particular staff members for fear of excluding anybody. You are all lovely. Thank you all.

This hotel is a little jewel in the middle of old town Istanbul. The hotel itself and the rooms resemble exquisite and elegant two centuries ago Turkish decoration. The staff was incredibly helpful and professional. The rooms were absolutely lovely with a welcome little fruit basket, We were on a family vacation with two little kids, so we really enjoyed being able to savour around the clock all day the delicious and excellent quality fruit juices, tea, fruits, cake - sometimes even two kinds of bundt cakes-, purified water bottles and the "press the button" coffee machine with excellent coffee. The hotel also has a wonderful restaurant and the breakfast buffet is something to write home about. We really enjoyed our stay there.

We spend our Wedding Night hear and it was fantastic. After the hotel was full and we could not stay but the director himself find us a sollution. We cannot be more grateful to the friendly staff to Mehmet, to Bora, to the wonderful lady in the Breakfast. The hotel itself is so beatiful with elegant decorated suites. We loved the turkish Bath!! The hotel is very well situated with beatiful patio, but the most important is the incredible quality of the staff!! We are looking forward to came back to celebrate our first anniversary!! It is the hotel I would recommend to stay in Istambul!!!
