Modern, comfortable, helpful staff and with an exceptional location! Only a moments walking distance to the main attractions! A pleasant stroll down to the Bosphorus via the spice market and grand bazaar for a public cruise and make sure to have one of the famous fish sandwiches when you're done!

Pros: Almost everything was excellent!
Cons: The breakfast was disappointing for me. I believe it could be improved. The buffet needed more of a variety and some good juices.
Location: Very close to all the major attractions. The tram line was a seven minute walk for me. Several restaurants were within a five minute walk.
My stay at this hotel was so very lovely. The staff were very nice to me and also very understanding and helpful at all times. They always made me feel special and showed me a lot of courtesy each day. I miss the staff and will return again.

Location, recent renovation, great value

Pros: Location. The interior decoration and the recent renovation.
Cons: --
Location: In Sultanhamet you can find half of of Istanbul 10 musts, but don't miss the Basilica Cisterns adjacent to this hotel.
The interior decoration and the recent renovation were performed with great design sense, incorporating Turkish aesthetics into a totally modern and high end ambient. The location is the best possible in Sultanhamet, and the value for the stay has no match in the area.

Close to the attractions

It is a very good hotel. Advantages: modern design. .spacious rooms..helpful staff..very clean..very close to the main attractions (30 seconds walking from sulymaneyya maydan where hagia sophia and blue mosque! !)..Close to the tram where you can go to taksim and other places. Disadvantages: the view is not what you expect (in addition to the mosque..there is an old garage..old buildings..etc)..the breakfast is not widely selected..and the minibar is not free..but really..who cares about minibar when everything is so cheap and handy. Over all I would stay there again.
