The property and the rooms are amazing. The only problem was that the room I selected was advertised as having a king bed while it was not.

I was pleasantly surprised to see how amazingly charming this hotel was. Of all my stays in throughout Turkey, I enjoyed their breakfast the most. Hotel receptionist, Berat, really went above and beyond to help me with my accommodations and getting a taxi for my next hotel. He was so very kind upon my check-in as well and gave useful advice for staying in Istanbul. Room was very cool, hotel itself was eclectic and tastefully designed, and the cappuccino in the breakfast room was one of the best I've had ever. I wanted to extend my stay, but they were fully booked unfortunately. I think the price was very reasonable and hope to stay here in future trips to Istanbul.

Lovely little hotel
This is a lovely boutique hotel in the heart of things ! The breakfast was fantastic, we stayed in a superior room it was really nice -yes a little noisy but no problem fir our 3 night stay . Beirut and Osman were super helpful as were all staff To management I would like to point out that the lighting in rooms could be improved- not good for night readers . Also the shower /toilet configuration is the wrong way around! The water sits on shower floor then if u need to use the toilet you have to pass on the wet floor this is not good at all
