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!

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.
The breakfast was not very good (only cheap stuff). The staff members were generally stern and not very 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.

Close to all must-see sights!Posted Jun 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
Lovely hotel. You can see the Blue Mosque just outside the window. So close to all major sites in the Old Town. Construction just now on a park alongside the hotel, but not a big problem. Views from the rooftop restaurant are magnificent.

Location, Location, LocationPosted May 9, 2013
Fantastic location near to all the sights in the old town, we walked everywhere but it is also near to the tram stop if you prefer not to. It has a roof top bar/restaurant with great views (although a bit pricey - smallest glass of wine I have ever seen for 12 TL!) The room was clean and fresh, and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast wasn't that great but given the price and location of this hotel I would recommend it to anyone. Would definitely stay there again.

No room to move.Posted Apr 14, 2013
Cons: Room size.
Location: Perfectly placed for attractions. Excellent views. Good access to transport. Everything at your door.
Location excellent. Breakfast very good. Staff quite nice. Room size way too small and impacted on what could have been a relaxing and comfortable stay.

loved hotel but if book panoramic room be specificPosted Sep 30, 2012 on Hotels.com
I loved the hotel..it was an oasis in a bustling city....my only disappointment is that I paid extra for a panoramic room and thought I would be facing blue mosque or sofia...instead i faced the nasty side street and they were unable to change my room.....
