We stayed for 3 nights end June. Room was good. Excellent staff. The Manager Zafer and rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful.We were welcomed at the reception by Diar. While we waited for our room, he offered us Turkish coffee and it was a pleasure to have it sitting outside the hotel entrance. Another day, I wanted to try out Turkish apple tea much after the breakfast time and the waiter present immediately got me a cup. It was wonderful!
Breakfast had variety and was very good.
The hotel is located in a beautiful lane and all the tourist sites are within walking distance. Wi-Fi connection was good.
The hotel also arranged for an airport shuttle (5 euros) for transfer to the airport.
We had a lovely time in Istanbul and I would recommend this hotel to people who don't look for 5 star facilities but prefer a warm and friendly ambiance.
