As stated by others on these reviews the staff are marvellous and informative . They also were very supportive after a medical issue. Transport in the area is great and this is the beating heart of Istanbul . Incredibly busy . The hotel was central and a few yards away from Istikial st , the busiest st in Istanbul . Upgraded to lovely room on the front of building ( room 104), above a restaurant below . Unfortunately sound from the restaurant permeates upwards and noise through the poor double glazing was a distraction through to the early hours of the morning with people singing in the street and noisy motorbikes and vehicles . There were ear plugs in the room ( which should have warned me !) The noise did not seem as bad the first few nights but seemed to get worse as the week went on . I hate to mention this now as perhaps I should have said something to staff , but wasn’t feeling great the last few days I was there . Opposite the hotel is a quirky backpackers restaurant which was amazing for price and food . Worth a few visits

Good hotel with a great location. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The sofa bed was saggy in the middle, and some days the AC would only be set as fan. But overall a nice stay.
