“Victoria Levinskaya, Uzbekistan”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

I think it is a wonderful hotel for couples and families. I am a mid aged woman with teenage daughter and we spent 5 nights in the hotel. Staff is very friendly and supportive, everybody speaks English and we really enjoyed our acquaintance with all members of the personnel. Wonderful location, very close as to the main historical attractions, as well as to the Bosporus and Ghalata bridge. Rooms are nice, but a bit sultry. Bathroom and bed are very good. We also enjoyed breakfasts, especially outdoor sittings. Very good WI Fi. I would definitely choose this hotel next time.

The location of the hotel is perfect for someone visiting Istanbul. Located in the old city , you can go to many attractions by foot. There is a metro station 50 meters away too.

The rooms were quite small but that was no problem for us. That stuff was very helpful, we left our luggage there for 7 hours after our check out and continued our sightseeing untroubled.

We stayed 3 nights in this cozy hotel. One this I must to mention is the staffs were outstanding and friendly all the times. I only have one advise for travelers with disabilities, this hotel might not a good choice for them since it is not facilitated with wheelchair ramp and large enough elevator.

When we arrived (at 3 am) we were given a very, very small room with a view of the neighbouring property's wall. We asked for a switch but they were completely full and agreed to give us a new room the next day. The new room was slightly larger but overall the rooms and bathrooms are tiny.The staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts were pretty standard Turkish fare but they are served in the Raymond Restaurant which is a very picturesque sidewalk cafe on the small lane behind the hotel. Perhaps the best asset of this hotel is its location within easy walking distance of everything you'll want to see in Sultanahmet.

This hotel is a small one but the value is very good. The location is perfect in a very quiet area not far from everything to visit in the Sulanahmet area et close to the tram to go to the Taksim Square area. The room are not so large but it's ok. The breakfast is very nice and good and the staff is helpful.
