Deceiving hotel room descriptionsPosted May 22, 2014
Pros: On the upside the location is great and the city view from restaurant in the top floor is the best.
Cons: honest room descriptions and exact size, sound proof windows, a real air conditioner
Location: very close to blue mosque and cistern, etc
I booked a king bed room and upon arrival realized there are only full beds in this hotel. The room was tiny in all aspects we could barely walk in it or place our luggage confortably. Air conditioning did not work as it should. A bit noisy or no sound proof windows.

Pros: The location is excellent! The staff was very friendly and breakfast was great. Small but comfortable beds too!

We walked in the room, opened the window and could see Blue Mosque and Sophia right in front of us! All the attractions are with in walking distance and it is near the tram as well.

Perfect LocationPosted Oct 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
I had a great stay in the AND hotel. It is a very comfortable and clean hotel. The breakfast is basic but ample and on the whole the staff were very helpful and friendly. Only on my last morning while checking out, the man behind the counter (appeared to be manager or owner) was quite rude and not reflective of other staff, in particular the girl who was there most of the time. I would def stay here again, very convenient location.

Excellent location, not great comfortPosted Oct 7, 2013
Pros: Location, helpful staff
Cons: Cleanliness, better blankets
Location: All the major attractions are right there, Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, underground Cistern. Great area to walk around.
The hotel is across from Hagia Sofia and near major attractions in Istanbul. It is an old building, our room smelled like cat spray. They cleaned it and it smelled better afterwards. Blanket was too small for the bed and they didn't have one that was large enough, but that seemed standard for hotels in Turkey. Due to excellent location, the neighborhood was very noisy. However, it is so convenient that it is probably worth it! Not too expensive, generally good value. Expect to be wakened by the call to prayer between 4 and 5 AM!

Excellent location to see Istanbul sights. Was given twin bed room when I asked for a double. Bath recently redone was nice. WiFi works well. Room is small but adequate. Breakfast was good, but I found nicer breakfasts at other Istanbul Hotels. Best thing is the location! I would probably stay there in the future.

Charming/Great locationPosted Sep 15, 2013
Pros: Location, charm, value, extrenal appearance, quiet
Cons: See above-Service,staff attitude, customer/guest orientation,room decor, restaurant pricing/attitude
Location: Perfect for old city-walking to Mosque, Sophia, Cistern, Bazaar, etc
'Had seen hotel on previous visit to Istanbul and sought it out. It is charming from outside, in a great location in old city, rooms are small(very) but adequate, view of Aga Sophia from higher floors is good, breakfast buffet is good, owner is nice, staff could be much friendlier, more welcoming, more helpful, appreciative and upbeat!!! Good value.Is on a quiet street, right off the tram main street. Restaurant (independent) on roof is lovely setting, but menu could be more complete, prices are too high,restaurant manager could be more "customer oriented"/accomodating. With staff/service improvements, this could be a 4-5 star boutique hotel with great reputation.It should be a "hip/trendy" boutique hotel by reputation.

OK HotelPosted Sep 2, 2013
Pros: Location is excellent.
Cons: Staff members need to be friendlier and more accommodating.

Walking to Istanbul's must see places..Posted Aug 24, 2013
Pros: Very near Istanbul's must see places like Sultanahmet (Blue) Mosque, Hagia Sophia , Topkapi Palace..
A small hotel with OK level service. Food was OK with a fabulous scenery . Most important point for this hotel that you are at the centre of top must see historical places in Istanbul e.g. Hagia Sophia, Topkapi palace and Sultan Ahmed (Blue ) Mosque, Basilica Cistern etc. If you are looking for a hotel to see Istanbul and just back to hotel for a sleep this could be your choice.
