Great location but...

Posted Mar 22, 2015
Great location, friendly staff and generally a nice hotel. However, their breakfast is terrible. In addition, the shower would only give me hot or cold water. Any attempt to reach the right temperature would make the water either too cold or too hot.

Good hotel close to all the sights.

Posted Nov 25, 2014
Pros: The situation and the staff are great, the beds very comfortable, breakfast very good with lots of choices, you can actually make proper hot tea!
Cons: Cleanliness, attention to detail in public areas
Location: All the sights are nearby with lots of restaurants (go to the hassle free ones)
The staff were particularly good, helpful in every way. Intelligent and knowledgeable. The hotel needs a little attention to cleaning and detail. For example, the chandeliers, which are a great feature, are dusty and need cleaning, bulbs need replacing. The outside of the hotel needs upgrading-the step to the road is deep and uneven. The glass/Perspex covers over the ancient walls in the breakfast room need dusting. Otherwise it's great.

very pleasant stay with few buts

Posted Sep 20, 2013
Pros: the personnel
Cons: room facilities
Location: excellent location, near major sites to visit and shopping area
The hotel staff were very helpful and nice. They would offer us coffee and snacks any time we miss the breakfast period. They were also helpful in advising us where to go for visiting or shopping, made good tours reservations for us. Even arranged a fixed price transportation to the airport in early morning (3:30 AM) Two problems though. 1- the hotel address is difficult to find by all taxis. you have to indicate the nearest land mark (like blue mosque or the Arasta bazar) 2- the room we had had two major problems: the shower needed fixing and we were located under the reception area so when midnight customers checked in (some very noisy) they wake you up and you cannot get back to sleep. Over all I would insist on an upper level room and check all bathroom installation before unloading your suitcases.

Better than expected.

Posted Sep 10, 2013
Pros: Location, rooms size & comfort & friendly staff.
Cons: Most of the hotels in the area offered free airport transfer but this hotel did not.
Location: The hotel is located within walking distance of San Sophia, the Blue Mosque & the Topkapi Palace. Great restaurants nearby.
I spent 5 nights at this hotel. It was recommended by a number of sources including Lonely Planet. The reviews were spot on. It is well located & the rooms were excellent. The breakfast room is a real surprise!

Great breakfast bar/archaeological site!

Posted Jun 29, 2013
Pros: The breakfast bar that was part of the old Byzantine Great Palace
Location: Great location, close to Arasta Bazaar
The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was very clean, and the hotel is in a good spot close to everything but still pretty quiet
