What is there left to say about this great little hotel in the Sultanahmet that has not already been said? We spent 6 nights at the hotel in January, me and my husband. We asked for, and got a room in the 3rd floor with a little balcony after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. The room was clean, big enough, bathroom large and shower pressure excellent. I was also very happy that they provided little slippers for your use, as my husband always forgets to pack his. The secret of this hotel is the warmth of the family that runs it. From the moment you step inside, you are made to feel welcome, like family. There are snacks in the lobby, and breakfast is included with your stay. The spread has cereal, toast, fruit, etc. and you can have fresh omelette as well. We spent time in the lobby getting to know other travelers as well as the staff. One of the uncles, Muharram even took us on a walk one night, covering several miles and showing us the real Istanbul, including his favorite kebab place where we had dinner which was incredible. It is about a 10 minute walk to the Blue Mosque and AyaSofia. I really liked this place, and the people and we can't wait to return. For sure, we will stay at this hotel again.
