above excellent position in a fascinating cityPosted Oct 20, 2013
Pros: Position, staff, facilities - made you feel you were part of the family.
Location: Many of Istanbul's primes attractions are within 5 minutes slow walk - Ayasophia, Blue Mosque, Hippadrome and Great Cistern, the Bosphorus.
Helpful, friendly staff who had good knowledge of surrounding venues and tourist sites. Breakfast was simple, high quality provided in 'family friendly' surroundings

Decent hotel with excellent locationPosted Aug 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
We were a group of three families, 12 people in all. Our stay was quite comfortable. The rooms are clean but somewhat small - adequate if you don’t plan to spend too much time in the room. The only complaint we had was the fact that we never got any hot water. The water was tepid at best. The breakfast was pretty good with fresh fruit, fresh fruit juice (made to order), cheese, pastry and an omelet station. Location is excellent – walking distance from all the major tourist attractions in Sultanahmed district. The courtyard is one of the best features of the hotel, where we hung out when we were not up and about. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful and willing to accommodate most reasonable requests.

Friendly hotel in a great locationPosted Jun 9, 2013
Pros: Friendly service
Cons: Some fittings in the room a bit basic
Location: Perfect - 2 mins walk from Topkapi and Hagia Sofia
The title says it all really. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful so you immediately feel at home. For exploring the Old Town the location is perfect. In addition to be being close to the major sites there are many nearby restaurants with 5 -10 mins. Bonuses include fast and free Wifi plus breakfast in the courtyard.

Pleasant, helpful staffPosted May 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel arranged the transfer from the airport for us, this went very smoothly and we were taken to the hotel door. The hotel is small and like many in the area the rooms are small and the furnishings minimal.The hotel is built into the old palace wall and this was a feature of our bedroom.All the staff were very pleasant and provided us with information and maps which enabled us to arrange our sightseeing. We were with friends and whilst we had no traffic noise, they had as their room adjoined the road. We understand that the noise was worse at the moment as all the tour buses are using this road whilst their normal one is being repaired. This should only last for another couple of weeks. Don't expect luxury, just a quaint, friendly and conveniently located hotel where you can have a beer in the garden.

Great LocationPosted May 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
Stayed here for 3 nights. Hotel staff could not be faulted, welcoming, helpful and friendly. Rooms are basic but spotlessly clean. Excellent choice for buffet breakfast - can recommend the scrambled eggs! Location is brilliant being a few minutes walk from the main attractions and just round the corner from a street full of cafes and restaurants which are very reasonably priced. One word of warning - the hotel is on a very steep hill - you go up to the main attractions and down to the sea front - so if you are not so good at walking be warned. However the taxi rank is right next door to the hotel so very convenient.(Taxi transfer hotel to Attautrk Airport 45TLira). For a budget weekend city break this was a great deal.
