Reviewed 28 May 2014

although the room is quite small (and the bathroom as well), but everything is so clean. Mr.Mehmet (the owner) and his mom also makes us feels like in home. The Receptionist (Mr. Arslan) speaks good english and very funny,helping me to arrange my package. located in the heart of Kadikoy which is very hip and suitable for young backpacker, this hotel is recommended as it close to pier, bus station, and surrounded by restaurants and shops, The breakfast was nice complete turkish breakfast. definitely will stay here again if i had a chance to visit kadikoy. keep up the good work!

Rooms are very clean small but adequate Location is great Kadicoy is an amazing place did not see many tourists but the locals are simply great good reasonably priced food The staff at the hotel are friendly and extremely polite and Mr Tahir the parrot is also very well behaved for a parrot .Mr Arslan at the front desk speaks excellent english and no request is too much trouble Please do not forget to tip these hard working and friendly folk. I must also reccomend the Aziz Hamam about 15 minutes walk from the hotel This is a genuine neighbourhood hamam the staff do not speak english but it is the best massage i have ever had in my life Mr arslan will call ahead to confirm price gratuities etc and if you are unsure how to get there they will send someone to escort you

I will definitely return to this hotel and this area of istanbul I wish i had discovered it sooner From the hotel it is a 10 minute walk to the ferry terminal with ferries to all areas Pls patronise this hotel
it is worth it

Room Tip: try to get a room on the lower floors as there is no lift they do not have a pool or fitness centre...

The friendly hotel staff almost makes up for the very tiny rooms and bathroom. We had to get up way before breakfast to catch a shuttle to the airport and they were kind enough to prepare breakfast for us, which was much appreciated. It is a very dark, cramped hotel, with an odd smell, but it was in a good location in Kadikoy. Easy to get to and from the ferries and shuttles.

We came for a football game Fenerbahce-Arsenal in August 2013.
Ideal location, only 400 m from the ferries and 10 min walk straight to to Sukru Saracoglu Stadium.
In the heart of a buzzling and authentic Turkish neighborhood.
Hundreds of cafes and restaurants around.
Hotel staff very helpful and friendly, hotel very clean.
Nice and healthy breakfast
Would use it every time when coming for sport events held in Kadikoy.

We stayed there one week in a group of 15 Norwegian friends. The hotel have few rooms, the staff is helpful and the area around the hotel is exciting. Many nice servingplaces, restaurants and markets in a distance of 100 meters. Always short distance "home" to a clean room after a tasteful dinner. In the morning a good breakfast with yoghurt to start a new nice day in Istanbul

I stayed 1 week at that hotel and I enjoy Istabul! I choose Anatolia side because of traffic problem and expensive prices at european side. If you want to rest and enjoy you can choose here simply. Thank you for smile face and kind service. I can recomend to all tripadvisor users.

What a jewel this hotel proved to be. This was our first visit to Istanbul and everyone at the Kent made it memorable for us. The value for money offered was exceptional but it was the helfulness and politeness of all the staff and the cleanliness of the rooms and public areas which was outstanding. The location is excellent with easy access to public transport and all the main attractions. This hotel is highly recommended for any tourist who wants to experience the real Istanbul with the convenience of top facilities.
