You Don't Get What You Pay ForPosted Sep 27, 2014
Pros: It was clean and it has the most beautiful views from the roof top. It was also convenient that this hotel is close to the metro.
Cons: I was so disappointed that they charged us for the bottles of water that they put in our room and hadn't told us that there would be a fee.
Location: The main tourist sites of Istabul couldn't be closer.
We chose this hotel for its location and for the family size room it has to accomodate our group of 5. I was immediately disappointed by the size of the "family" room since it was very small and quite cramped. The walls were dirty and the room was very simple, much like a college dorm room. Unfortunately the location proved to be very loud. There was a restaurant nearby that played very loud music late into the night and at five o'clock in the morning the call to prayer woke us up.

Can't complain about the location, 5 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque. Very basic no frills hotel does not look anything like its web site photos but if location is important I would recommend it.

“A nice, basic hotel in a great location!”Posted Jul 1, 2014
23 Jun 2014 Pros: Location, location, location! Cons: Limited breakfast selection, if this matters to you.... A nice, basic hotel in an amazing location. Literally a 2-minute walk from the Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia,a 5-minute walk to the tourist hub of the city and a the Sultan Ahmet tram stop, a 10-15-minute walk (or 2 tram stops) from the grand Bazaar and 3 short tram stops from the Spice Bazaar and port area. Pleasant and helpful staff and management. Rooms were basic, clean and comfortable. A slightly larger breakfast selection (similar to other comparable hotels in the area) would make a huge difference. It was mostly a cold selection of salads, cheeses and meats together with some scrambled eggs and some sliced chipolata in a tomato-ey sauce (and unfortunately these too were often cool). Some fried options would have been nice. And some cartons of pure juices wouldn’t go amiss – during our stay there was only a strangely thick, rather sickly-sweet orange liquid available. The coffee was also a very strong Turkish variety which was not to everyone’s taste. There was a great view from the roof terrace both of the mosques and the sea, however the bar there was not open when we stayed which made the rooftop eerily uninhabited (while other terraces we could see nearby were buzzing). Overall a very nice and convenient experience, and we would be very happy to stay again.

Best locationPosted Jul 1, 2014
Pros: The staff are good and very helpful...
Cons: Room infrastructure like Airconditionair is needed to be fixed in room no 201
Location: The hotel is very near to Blue Mosque, Hagi Sofia, Topkapi Palace, Sultahmet Tram station, Grand bazar, many other tourist places.
The breakfast is good. The food options near hotel are good. The look at Blue mosque at night is awesome, you can do that each day. If you apple tea, please dont but the apple peices sold in grand bazar. Look for Elma instead. The Tea glasses in which tea is served, you should buy them in spice bazar. Do lot of bargaining for any thing you want to buy.

Nice stayPosted Jun 26, 2014
Staff is friendly and can speak english. Location is perfect, all attractions within walking distance. Breakfast is not very good, although plenty of options but no fried eggs, croissants and english tea available.

Great location, damp musty basement roomPosted Jun 25, 2014 on Hotels.com
Location great. Hotel ok (terrace is lovely) but we were in a damp basement with little natural light and infested with flies. Tv did not work even if we had wanted to stay in the room. Shame because the rest if the hotel and jts location are fine.booked transfer from airport to hotel but noone turned up
