Nice hotel , Close to grand bazar

Posted Apr 16, 2017
Was picked up and dropped by Hotel Airport shuttle. Very close to grand bazaar and 10 minutes walk to sultan ahmed attractions. Clean and spacious rooms. Very friendly and eager to help staff. Quick check in and check out. Breakfast was adequate. Would definitely re visit

Lovely, quiet hotel in a perfect location

Posted Mar 8, 2017
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing.
Location: 2 minutes walk from the excellent tram service linking you directly to all the major attractions and sights and just 4 miins to the amazing Bazaar.
Loved every minute of our 4 night stay. Can't praise the owner and staff enough for their attentiveness and kindness.

I have been coming to Istanbul for some time to meet our rug pickers and weavers. This hotel without a doubt was the best one I have stayed at. The entire staff could not have been nicer. They treated me like family.

Great boutique hotel with a fantastic location

Posted Jan 23, 2017
Pros: Location, staff, cleanliness, good beds & linens
Cons: Rooms are European size.
Location: Close in to the old city sites of palace, mosques and Bazaar plus tram for anywhere else. Public transport very good and best to get around.
Great boutique hotel with a fantastic location to the Grand Bazaar Suly" Mosque and tram line. Second time staying. Staff so friendly. Breakfast was included and available most f the morning hours. Found our new home base in Istanbul.

Thank you very much for this lovely reviewand for all the beautiful words you said, Walt.The pleasure is all ours to have met you. Thank you for naming us your new home base. We are flattered. May we also kindly inform that, we have various types/sizes of rooms available; depending on your preferences. The room you stayed booked for your first reservation was the most basic room category, and smallest in room size. The next category rooms are about twice as large in area, and are currently available at great value for money rates.

The staff was pleasant, however, the breakfast provided can be expanded a little in choice.

Thank you very much for your nice words about the staff and your very valuable feedback,Khurram. We have very recently updated our breakfast choice offering arragement, where we offer our guests a list of "tomorrow's breakast items" to select from, handed to the guests on a daily basis. The guests are now offered to custom choose their own breakfast, among the 20 items on offer. The feedback we have been receiving about this new arrangement is very positive so far. Hope you enjoy it,too, should you choose to come to Istanbul again and stay with us next time, which we sincerely hope. All the best, Deniz Duyar

Incredible service and a quaint hotel

Posted Dec 26, 2016 on Hotels
Every single staffperson with whom I interacted was incredibly professional, spoke stellar English, and seemed willing to go above and beyond to help me. I felt so taken care of that I felt to tip above and beyond what is customary. Additionally, it was a 10 minute walk from all of the sites in downtown Istanbul. A perfect location. The breakfast every morning was impeccable. I honestly think the omelettes prepared for breakfast were the best I've ever had (I don't even like omelettes). This hotel is very worth it if you want a unique, nostalgic hotel reminiscent of an earlier decade in Istanbul.

A great hotel

Posted Nov 27, 2016
Pros: The location is good for access to all attractions in the Sultanahmet area, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Aya Sofya and the bazaars. Tram access good.
Cons: Nothing really.
I had a great three weeks here in November 2016. Friendly staff, satisfying breakfast selection and I loved the omelettes.

Great hotel near Grand Bazaar

Posted Sep 26, 2016
Stayed here for 5 days in September. Very comfortable hotel walking distance from grand bazaar. It is only a few stops away from Topkapi museum and blue mosque making it a great location. The buffet breakfast on the roof terrace is wonderful and has a great view of the sea. The room is comfortable. Top hotel!
