“Charming Hotel in a Perfect Location”
Reviewed 12 August 2010

We stayed at the hotel for two nights in August 2010. It has a prime location - close to the Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia, and Topkapi Palace - but is on a quieter side street that allowed for peaceful sleeping and a lovely breakfast on the rooftop terrace with sea views. The staff was helpful and kind. The room was not particularly spacious, but was well appointed, and the shower was great!

Excellent hotel & location - Blue Mosque & Topkapi Palace within easy walking distance - small hotel with friendly staff. Comfortable & clean. Airport pickup was well organised & prompt.

At first this small family run hotel in Sultanahmet looks like many others in the area. Look closely and you get a spotless and comfortable room (mine was almost at street level but I never had any noise issues), nice bathroom, good breakfast (plus great views from the rooftop room) and, mainly, a very friendly service from the staff. This is really the major selling point of the hotel as previous reviewers have already stated many times. Fatih in particular is truly fantastic. The location is ideal for first-time visitors to Istanbul. Highly recommended.

We are seasoned travellers, and cannot rave enough about this B&B. We were welcomed with open arms by Fatih, and nothing was too much trouble in terms of recommending local sights and eateries. The breakfast is wonderful including fresh fruit on the rooftop terrace. We spent many evenings drinking our own wine on the terrace enjoying the sea views. Rooms are good for the price and bathroom very modern with an enormous shower head. Location is spot-on being in the middle of the old town, close to cute restaurants and bars; also walking distance to Grand Bazaar, Mosques. Airport pickup was also hassle-free and a smooth ride with drinks included! Thanks again Fatih and others for making this a holiday to remember with fond memories.

This hotel is exactly as advertised in the reviews. The staff is amazingly friendly and everything is spotless. The view from the rooftop is wonderful. The breakfast is good. The hotel is excellent value for money: It is not expensive and hence the rooms are fairly small. The location is very central to the main tourist sights and there are innumerable restaurant options within a block or two. We had an early flight the last day and the staff prepared a breakfast package with juice and a breakfast sandwich to take along.

Really enjoyed our stay here, the room was a really good size for the price and clean, the bathroom was very nice and breakfast on the terrace every morning with a lovely view was great. It's in a easy walking distance from all the main tourist attractions and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Would definately recommend this.

We had a wonderful 2 night stay here. The location is within walking distance of all the major sites in Sultanahmet, and just off a street with many restaurants and shops. The room was spotless and spacious enough, with a modern bathroom, little refrigerator, and free wifi. The owner and employees were extremely pleasant and helpful. They served an above average breakfast on their rooftop overlooking the Bosphorus. All in all, we recommend this nice hotel in the hear of old Istanbul.
