Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 January 2014

We arrived here during the winter and got a great deal on the price, considering the rooms and location. Two minutes walk away from the Hagia Sophia and most the major historic sites Istanbul. Rooms were small, but not really terribly so and as to be expected considering many other similar hotels. Sound was broken on tv but it was quickly taken care of. Rooms and bathrooms were nice, and were cleaned daily. Service was great and prompt, and one employee Kadir was always on hand to help. There is a rooftop with a great view over the area. A breakfast is served each morning 8-10, after that you can pick up complementary bottles of water in case the day's walking has exhausted you.

Would recommend.

The hotel is centrally located by the Basilica Cistern, Topkapi, Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sofia which is near to everything important to see the tourist. There is a shoping area also.
Exellent servise and exellent food in a hotel, friendly staff and especially thanks to Mr Cesim Aladino Toprak.
