“Clean, comfortable and very convenient”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

We spent a week here with our family and enjoyed the clean, comfortable rooms and the easy access to all the key sights. The Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya are 5 minutes walk away and there are many restaurants within 2 minutes. The staff are very helpful and friendly and we would particularly commend Tuba for her good advice. Breakfast choice was good albeit a little repetitive for a full week's stay but adequate none the less.

Room Tip: Floors 3 and 4 to the rear are quieter and have sea views. Front rooms can have a little traffic noi...

Extremely clean, friendly hotel on a quiet street in Sultanhamet. Lots of choice at breakfast, lovely roof terrace overlooking the Bosphorus, comfortable beds and great showers. Reception staff all extremely helpful, especially Hilmi + Tubah.
One of the staff recommended Hamdi kebabs, which turned out to be the best kebab I'd ever handle.
For that I'm forever grateful.

We stayed at this nice little hotel for a week. The people at the reception were always very nice and helpful. The room was clean and there is a roof terrace with a great view to the seaside, where you can have breakfast. In the room you get free water, coffee and tea. Great location, all the important sights in walking distance.

A little but very charming hotel. The rooms were very nice, and the staff was really wonderful. The young woman at the desk during the day was very helpful to give some advice considering the visits or to organise a trip. Very nice restaurants in walking distance en also very close to the old centre.
A very nice experience.

it was a brand new hotel and we stayed 3 nights. Everything was very good only the shower was poor. But everything was very clean and a big cosy room.
Personal was very very friendly and helpful any time. We wanted central heating and they put it on immediately. Especially the lady at the front desk
Breakfast was ok but not our kind of thing.
The hotel is in an ideal location , near the sultanahmet and restaurants and near historical sights
Now I read there was a roof terrace. We didn't new and nobody told us

Room Tip: Vieuw of the room was the Blue Moskee and the cheapest one.

We stayed here for 9 nights and loved it! It is a small hotel so you have a chance to get to know the staff a bit. Everyone at the front desk was exceptionally friendly and helpful. I became sick during our stay and truly felt the genuine care and concern of the staff. We were especially impressed with a young woman at the reception desk by the name of Tuba. She was so friendly and kind and always ready to answer a question or provide assistance.

The hotel is also in an ideal location. It is just a short walk to many major attractions in Istanbul. There are many great restaurants just a few steps from the hotel as well as shopping and access to the tram. We stayed on the top floor in room 401. It has a beautiful and expansive sea view, a king size bed and a large shower. There is very minimal storage for clothing, but we did not find it to be a big problem. Another nice feature of the hotel is their rooftop terrace where you are free to go any time of day to enjoy the beautiful views. You are welcome to bring your breakfast up there if you choose. The buffet breakfast is served in a comfortable room and offers a nice selection of breads, cheeses, meats, cereals and fruits. They will also prepare an omelet for you if you like.

Overall, this hotel is a very good value and we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you enjoy a sea view, ask for room 401. It has a spectacular view!
