Perfect for a short stay in the heart of IstanbulPosted Apr 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
Small room but very comfortable beds & pillows; quiet. Shared bathroom was right across the hall & we never had to wait for it. There is a terrace on the roof with wonderful views (the mosques, the Bosporus...) & tables to sit at. The included breakfast was in the restaurant next door & was the best breakfast we had on our 10-day trip which included Italy. The room has lockers so you can safely lock up your valuables but we didn't feel the need to do so. You are less than 5 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and less than 10 minutes walk to Ayasofia & the Cistern. It was challenging to find from the Metro/tram we took from the airport to Sultanamhet stop, but very convenient. Great stores & restaurants all around the hostel. Next door's restaurant gives you a 10% discount on dinner. The hostel staff was very helpful, spoke English for us, & gave us a good map & directions; they let us store our luggage with them after checkout while we toured before heading back to the airport. Our family of 4 only had 24 hours & this was the way to get a good sleep, big breakfast, & see the highlights!
