Great location, friendly staffPosted Sep 18, 2013
A good choice for the first time visitor to Istanbul. Close to the key historic sites and many good (although touristy) dining options. Plenty to see just walking around the local streets. Hotel staff were extremely welcoming and helpful.

Value for moneyPosted Jul 2, 2013
Pros: Breakfast, Staff and Location
Cons: Small room, little dated decor.
Location: A short walk (5 mins) to the action, but in a quieter couple of streets.
Good location, nice little hotel with friendly staff. The included breakfast was nice (no hot food though), but the decor could do with a little freshen up.

Small but comfortable hotelPosted Jun 17, 2013
Pros: The safety deposit box is located behind the main desk. There are two keys to your safe and you get one. I felt very secure about my important items.
Location: It is about a 5 minute walk (uphill) to the Blue Mosque and Haghia Sophia and about the same distance in the opposite direction to the sea.
The staff were kind and friendly. The breakfast was Turkish style with fresh and delicious choices. The hotel is at the bottom of a hill from Haghia Sophia. Be ready to hike. The items on the desk are actually part of the "mini-bar," so be prepared for charges. They are not worth it. I chose this hotel for its proximity to the sights of Sultanahmet and was not disappointed. It is really close to a variety of things. It was clean and relatively quiet. I was amused by the rooster and hen meandering the cobble stone streets. They offer free breakfast and tea service in the afternoon. Be careful to get tea during that time or they will charge you.

Hotel is in a fantastic location. Close to many restaurants, bars etc but far enough away not to hear the noise! Also very close to most tourists sites, like the Blue Mosque

Great hotelPosted Apr 1, 2013
Good hotel, fabulous breakfast spread in the mornings. Hotel very clean, tidy and staff very helpful - recommended and booked tour for us from hotel. Close to all attractions and lots of eateries in the vicinity. Within walking distance to grand bazaar. Metro and tram easy to navigate. Some street noise at night but it is Istanbul after all! Would definitely recommend and return.

Charm and valuePosted Dec 31, 2012 on Hotels.com
Really liked the hotel. Delicious Turkish breakfasts, with western food also. Only 5 minutes walk (literally) from Blue Mosque, etc. Staff very pleasant except for when I checked out and new person on front desk tried to make me pay again (I had already paid on hotels.com). We booked cheapest twin. Everything you'd want was there in room, and more, but don't expect a huge room. The hotel is located in a charming and safe small quarter with old wooden homes, and large hotels and restaurants just a block away. Our cab driver got lost finding it. I recommend Istanbul as a great Xmas get away for fellow secularists and non-religious types: 25 December was 'unchristian' bliss.

Unhappy stay in IstanbulPosted Oct 30, 2012
Cons: view, room
Location: Okay quite convenient
Booked Deluxe Sea View Room with magnificent Sea Views" however room only had distant glimpses of the water between buildings. Unable to change rooms due to hotel being full. Manager refused to credit or discuss and did not show for agreed meeting to discuss. Rooms had too many furniture items making it difficult to move around or pack/unpack. Not enough breakfast tables resulting in queuing for over 15mins for table. Management totally uncooperative.

Lovely staff and very clean in a good location.Posted Jul 24, 2012
This hotel was great. The staff were very friendly and helped carry our bags in and up to our room. The hotel is very very clean, they are always cleaning. Breakfast is great, a large selection. Close to food places and the blue mosque where the tram is. Enjoyed stayed and credit to the staff.
