Cheap, central, clean, bedrooms, bathrooms and throughout, friendly, Turkish breakfast, quiet, fast free WiFi, couldn't ask for more from a budget hotel in the centre of the old district. Five minute walk from Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque etc but also right next to two tram stations (Gulhane and Sirkeci) for the rest of Istanbul.

The location was excellent, the stuff was the most polite I have ever seen, altough they didnt speak english very well. The breakfast was decent, the room was big, clean and had strong wi-fi. It was with view on the street and you can hear all the cars and trams, so it may be a problem for someone who has... More

Arrived in the early hours of the morning and checked in quickly. The double room was quite small but the location made up for this. Breakfast was included but on the first morning there was not a great deal left when I arrived at 9am. Other mornings there was a good range of options available. The hotel was within walking...

Well located and clean hotel.Poor breakfast,tiny bathroom and lack of english language from the personel (although they were polite and kind). A little bit noisy because of tram but with little money you are in the centre of the most important monuments of Istanbul.

Small clean rooms and great central location in the city centre. However, with a breakfast that is not going to send Harry Potter home to his mother praising the cuisine the hotel does leave a bit to be desired. For example, there is no elevator to the first floor reception and after this the elevator is tiny. Noise from the... More
