Good experience !

Posted Oct 29, 2015
Pros: Small homey had a good feeling
Cons: I don't know , cause I enjoyed the difference
Location: It is nearby the bazaar, the blue mosque ,if you go down you see the sea , it has a view of the see in the breakfast room, it is safe to walk ,
I have to say , I felt welcomed , very helpful. The night shift crew were wonderful.i enjoyed the room , they guided me to a nice restaurant . Breakfast was quite nice.i could walk to all the sight seeings from the hotel. If you take the tram , stop at sultanahmed stop and than walk down from the park and it is only 5 mins from the stop, don't let no taxi drivers fools you.it is quite easy. I enjoyed the whole experience .

Posted Jun 6, 2015
Pros: Safe location, comfortable beds, friendly staff. There was a Hamam in the hotel as well.
Location: Centrally located to the Blue Mosque and tram acessibiltynis less than a ten minute walk.
Super friendly staff. The breakfast was included in the price of the room. You must go to the rooftop for great views of the sea.

Nice hotel for the price

10 min walk to metro, clean room, nice staff, staff speak English, parking is on the street, the spa cost extra, the room is small but has everything needed. It's perfect if your just looking for a place to sleep and take shower. The breakfast was not impressive.

Nice hotel, right in the centre of the city

Posted Oct 5, 2014
We had a good experience staying in this hotel, both with regards to the service and front line employees. The service was quite good, and the staff very helpful. We would come back to this hotel. Also the location was perfect, next to Sultanahmet mosque and Hagia Sophia and within a walking distance of the Grand Bazar.

Lovely terrace.

Lovely roof terrace and decent breakfast. The room was a bit on the small size but the bed was very comfortable. Well situated for all sultanahmet sites and near to tram line to get every where else. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
