Close to most of the main historical site

Posted May 5, 2017
Pros: Friendly, family oriented hotel. Nice rooms and close to everything.
Cons: Organizing the airport pickup, they need to coordinate that better.
Location: Great location, near all the main historical sites. There is a great restaurant near the Marmara Sea ( 3 min walk) at a very low cost, ask the staff.
Great, very helpful and kind management staff. Amazing city! the hotel is near almost everything within walking distance. I recommend using the Big Bus Tour, there is a stop about 5 min from the hotel. Becareful with restaurant prices, always ask for costs before you go in.

independent view

i had a good stay. as i already mentioned the staff were great. very friendly and helpful. i asked for dinner early one evening and the food was nice. the family were eating their dinner on one side of the dining area and i was on the other side. yet it was a very homely feeling. just a couple of criticisms. i was woken up at five in the morning by singing/chanting coming from the mosque. the other thing being the owner said he'd give me an alarm call on the morning (4am0 i was checking out, but didn't. it doesn't matter. i depended on my mobile's alarm for that little matter. thank you to the hotel staff for your over-all hospitality.

We stayed there for 4 days. We enjoyed our stay very much. They do not have big buffet but they can prepare you nice breakfast per your order(no charge if included in room price). Rooms are Nice and Clean. Bathroom was Great.Nicely renovated. Excellent Friendly Staff. It is really a NICE place to stay in Istanbul.

Great tourist location

Posted Jan 13, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel was very convenient and good value for tourists. The manager went out of his way to help us get to the airport in the snow - he arranged people to carry our luggage to the main road as we were snowed in, and waited with us until the transport arrived. The hotel is nicely decorated and the breakfast was really good and authentic. The hot water in the shower was a bit inconsistent but other than that it was a great stay. It is lacking a lounge area inside, as we met up with friends and had no where to sit and chat. There is a nice patio outside for summer. The airport shuttle was quite expensive and now I know better I will take a taxi.

Perfect hotel in Sultanahmet

Posted Nov 25, 2015
This hotel was difficult for the taxi drivers to find but was in a super convenient location. Room was comfortable and nice fresh linen. Bathroom smelled a bit funky but I guess that's expected with these old buildings. Better laundry facilities would be appreciated. Great location. We walked every where and there is a tram that takes you to the newer side of the city. Staff were lovely!

I don't recommend this hotel to stay. Although the staff are friendly but the location of hotel is not good. Needs about 15 min walk to access nearest tram station. You can find better hotels for this price in Istanbul

too expensive for nothing

Posted Oct 16, 2015 on Hotels
I booked the annex room because of the picture that was advertised along, once I got there it was a different matter, dirty room, small, smell and dirty bathroom with broken shower, not good at all, then we got moved into the main building which was ok. Bad experience and I would not return there.

A jewel in the heart of Old Istanbul

Posted Sep 24, 2015 on Hotels
This little hotel is in a quiet beautiful neighborhood just a 5 minute walk from the center of everything. The room was small but a good use of space and very nice and clean. It felt boutique. ther breakfast is served with so many choices and you have a really nice courtyard to enjoy it. the people working are helpful and have a very good demeanor. It is right by a really great little restaurant called KOS 2 with a high terrace that has an amazing view food and service.

Very good location, behind blue mosque, near the port, and close to all museums and attractions.
