My husband and I stayed at this hotel last month on a holiday to Istanbul. It was cheaper than many of the other hotels at that time (the height of the season) and we chose it because it has overall good reviews on Tripadvisor. It is perfectly located - just about five minutes away from most of the tourist spots, in the heart of Sultanahmet, surrounded by nice Turkish restaurants and interesting shops. It's a sweet quaint place with very warm and friendly staff, quite clean too, but I have to be honest and say that the rooms are tiny and the bathrooms are positively claustrophobic. The view from the terrace is not too great - yes, there's a slice of the sea and the dome of the Blue Mosque, but the foreground is jammed with rooftops full of junk. But then if you're on a budget I guess that's something you can put up with. Oh, and the lovely apple tea is on the house.

This hotel has a super location if you want a sightseeing break. It is located near many of the big sites and is a very friendly hotel. The reception staff are great and will willingly book restaurants, taxis etc for you FOC. The hotel is basic in amenities but in terms of price it is a fair place to base yourself for 3 or 4 days. Rooms are quite small but you have everything you need.

We stayed here largely because of review on Trip Advisor. Our room was not large, but quite large enough and very clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and the breakfast was wonderful -- copious and varied. The neighborhood is quite touristy, but there are some quite good restaurants. And it 5 minutes from the tram and 10 minutes from the Blue Mosque or Aya Sofia. We will go back there on our next visit.
