Good for a long weekendPosted Jun 24, 2013
Pros: friendliness of staff, breakfast
Cons: bathroom size and quality
Location: safe and close to the centre
We stayed in a Standard room over a long weekend, and were pleasantly surprised with the friendliness of staff and room size. The hotel is quiet, breakfast varied (in a continental/Mediterranean, but not English breakfast way). The rooftop pool/bar is a definite bonus. The area where hotel is located is close to one of the large metro stations (we took the train from the airport and walked to the hotel). It is also close to Grand Bazaar, and a walking distance from Sultanahmet. It felt safe to come back to the hotel at nighttime. Downsides: instant coffee at breakfast, and outdated bathroom. Overall excellent value for money, particularly if you are out all day sightseeing.

Close to the tourist action plus a poolPosted Jun 22, 2013
Picked this particular hotel for the terrace top pool within a hot sweaty metropolis. The perfect way to unwind after a busy's days sight seeing. It did the job. Friendly staff, great breakfasts serving a combination of traditional Turkish food and continental breakfasts. Great location, easily reachable from the airport via train/tram. A 20 minute walk from the main Sultanahmet tourist area, which takes you past the grand bazaar. Food and drink prices certainly take into account it's a tourist hotel, but there are plenty of restaurants/cafes in the vicinity. As well as local shops to buy basic provisions (bottles of water,beer) cheaply. Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Istanbul, and would come back myself.

Rooms a little small, breakfast ok, bathroom tinyPosted May 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
Room was a little small, but have stayed in smaller. Bathroom was very tiny, shower over small bath tub, leaked quite badly. Toilet behind door which could then not open very wide. No problems with aircon or lift. Very pleasant and efficient staff. Taxi to airport 45TL, which is fair, and is for up to 4 persons. Breakfast ok, but food quite unhealthy if you don't stick to just fruit. Very oily otherwise. Had a better breakfast at the Zagreb Hotel. Good location and easy to find, near Laleli University Tram stop.

Budget and OK option for Istanbul explorers.Posted Dec 28, 2012
The Room was clean, and comfy, the bedsheets and towels have a strong bleach smell, so there is no doubt that they have a pretty good sanitary level, the thing was that the walls are so thin that you can clearly hear the other guests chatting in the other rooms, which may keep you awake against your will, and our bathroom has not extractor, so it had few molt spots, but we already were aware of this because of previous reviews, but nothing serious that you can´t handle. Breakfast is OK with cold and hot options, but not much variety, we stayed for a week and the dishes were always the same. Hotel location 8 mins walk from the metro station, 25 mins walk from Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, 15 mins to Grand Bazar, 35 mins to Galata tower.

Dear Sir / Madame, First of all thank you for your valuable opinions. It is really important for us to improve ourselves. Actually we had extractor in the bathrooms but weren't enough at all. We bought 2 more, they are working properly right now so next time we hope you will be satisfied from the bathrooms also. For the walls unfortunately we can not do anything at the moment but for the next alteration we will add to our notes. We hope to see you again... Best Regards...
