Extremely friendly staff who did their best to make my stay comfortable, warm and clean room and bathroom. However, the hotel building was old (and has no lift) and located in an old area (not exactly in istanbul center but still near -about 3 to 4 km- and there is a public transport station near the hotel (bus)). No such tourist flow that is usually seen in the center nor much shops can be found as the area is more of residential rather than touristic. Even the few nearby markets close earlier as compared to center. It was somehow hard to find the hotel as well. And for people who fear dogs, they own one that stays sitting at the reception and breakfast area all the time (was polite and lovely one though). After all, I enjoyed my stay and was really impressed the way that the staff made everything smooth and comfortable (helping with bags, advised regarding places to visit, and arranged me a comfortable van that drove me to airport). They were really great.

Awesome people very bad maintenance
Arrived at the worst hotel I have ever seen. Wrinkled gold bedding and curtains very grubby did not want to take my shoes off did not want to touch anything. Toilet absolutely disgusting. Talked to the manager and he suggested their other hotel. What they lack in cleanliness and condition was made up by very helpful and kind service. Truly nice people. The 2nd place was really an apartment and not an hotel room. It was better more modern and had a beautiful view. Very dusty could draw pictures on the dust on the bed head board. Toilet was badly stained. But again the guy who managed the place was just so kind friendly and helpful. I would stay at the second place again. But I would not pay 200 tl and Ill scrub it down. There where some major water leaks everywhere. Broken balcony door, broken bed. Although the place obviously was renovated recently the maintenance needs improvement. Its sad really because Alp was such a nice man. On a different note. If you are walking with luggage its really not possible to walk to the hotel. Its a main road with no side walk and its grueling. Take a taxi from the metro station and all is fine.

Do not let pictures trick you . you will not find what you see. once i arrived they gave me a room on the fifth floor , i would not recommend it to an animal , it is NOT for human being. an d they told my brother that they do not have a room for him. after discussion , they gave my brother a room with three beds. and they told me to cancel if i do not like, how to do that from turkey and i am from USA. i had to accept to sleep in my brother room and they charged us for both rooms, No breakfast was available.
