Nice hotel , walking distance to Blue Mosque

Posted Jul 18, 2016
Friendly staff, informative, the hotel is on a relatively quiet street , nearby a few little restaurants . I stayed for four days, the breakfast is just OK, but the Turkish coffee is good.

Very central hotel with friendly, helpful staff.

Posted May 7, 2016
Pros: Central position. Thoughtful, knowledgeable staff. Safe. Spa in the hotel ( although we did not have time to use this facility).
Cons: From our perspective, nothing. It was ideal for what we needed.
Location: Central. Easy to find. All main historic sites within walking distance. Close to tram for easy access to airport.
We went to Istanbul to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. We've been to Turkey many times but never to this wonderful city. We booked the hotel because of previous positive reviews and also central location in Sultanahmet, close to the Blue Mosque and transport system. The hotel lived up to expectations. We were warmly welcomed on arrival. The room was clean and well appointed with a comfy bed, spa bath and mini bar as you would expect. We ate twice in the hotel at night. Good quality food. The breakfast was an interesting mix of meats, cheeses, olives and my favourite - stuffed vine leaves! The hotel was an excellent base for sightseeing as it was A 5 minute walk to Aya Sofya, Topkapi Palace, Archaeological Museum, Basilica Cistern, and Blue Mosque. We spent 3 days walking around and visiting the marvellous sights of this historic city. We are already wanting to return to see some things we didn't have time for. On the birthday itself the staff arranged for a cake to be brought at breakfast which was a touching thought and much appreciated. The evening celebration took place on a dinner cruise on the Bosphorus again with birthday cake which had been arranged by the hotel staff. Magical trip.

Great staff and great room.

Posted Apr 27, 2016 on Hotels
Room 501 has a balcony and real good view of the sea. Room 301 doesn't have the sea view, but the room is very large with an awesome bathroom. The staff (front desk, dining, doorman) all were among the most friendly I've ever had anywhere!!
