“Great Location”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

The only reason I am giving the hotel a 4 is because the location is great and we did not stay in the room but to shower and sleep. The breakfast was average, they offer the same breakfast everyday, no choices. The rooms all smelled as we switched several times. The beds were comfortable. The rooms kind of a tight squeeze. Our fridge did not work well. Staff helpful and friendly. I would stay again because you get used to the smell. The hotel is near The blue mosque, tram, Hagia Sophia and other great places to visit.

We are Very happy that we got this hotel booked by the booking.com . Great location, could not get any better! Right across the Blue Mosque,Cisterna Hagia Sofia, the tram, many restaurants and shops. The staff was, as all in Turkey, very pleasant and try to serve you with a big smile.Espeacily Mr Ayhan Salur. If you book a single it is a bit tight but very comfortable at least for a few nights. Breakfast was average but delicious, fresh and plenty. You can have your coffee,tea, beer, lunch and dinner in their fantastic roof terrace. We love this little hotel very much.

Room Tip: We stayed room 203 a bit small but enough for us.

We stayed here for 7 nights with our four children. Our stay was comfortable and the rooms were cleaned and changed daily. The staff were friendly and helpful with good advise and info as this was our first visit to turkey. Many thanks to mr Osman and mr Ahmed in particular. We would certainly recommend this hotel for honesty and trustworthy purposes also. Rashad Mahmood from United Kingdom.
