Great value! Highly recommended

Great place close to the sea and tourist sites (5 mins to Aya Sofya). The staff went above and beyond to make the stay as comfortable as possible for us. Breakfast was good as well. Clean and cozy!

Pleasant conveniently located hotel in Sultanahmet

Posted Jun 29, 2015 on Hotels
Pleasant hotel in Sultanahmet. Within short walking distances of the principal historic sites, Blue Mosque, Sofia and Topkapi. Bonus: three receptionists on duty during my stay, Sertan, Hakan and Hamit were extraordinarily helpful.

Great location in Old Town & accommodating staff

Posted Jun 26, 2015
Pros: The location, and the friendly and helpful staff
Cons: Not much without a major reconstruction (there is no elevator). Rooms are a bit small, but, not bad.
Location: This place is on the edge of Sultanahmet District, so you are walking distance from most of the key sites. Lots of food choices around as well.
This is a small family-owned hotel, which has a very nice location in Sultanahmet (the Old Town). You can walk to most of the key tourist sites from here easily, and there are many restaurants and shops nearby. Our family booked 2 rooms for a short stay before we left Istanbul on a cruise, and we all felt this hotel was a good choice. The owner and other staff went out of their way to assist us with shuttle arrangements, and another travel issue we had with one of our party. The included breakfast was nice, and they have a rooftop deck that is decent. The rooms are a bit small, but heck, this is Europe, so, this was not a surprise. All in all, for the price paid, we were quite satisfied and would come back here for a short stay anytime. Would not recommend the hotel for those seeking a lot of comfort (aka Hilton or Marriott), but if you are only after a clean and safe place for a few days while touring around the old part of Istanbul (or planning around a cruise like we were), this is a good place to stay.

Great value, location and customer service

Posted Jun 17, 2015 on Hotels
Great value, very convenient location, short walk to Blue Mosque, Aya Sofya, Topkapi Palace, etc. Sparse but clean, comfortable rooms. Some late-night noise from restaurants below but manageable. The hotel staff was incredibly nice and helpful.
