From the staff, down to location, cleanliness, food and service, this hotel left us with nothing but good memories. Found it trip advisor ofcourse and am glad I booked it. There's way too many hotels in the area but this little one was a gem for us.
Though a bit of an uphill walk it's just 3-5 mins away from the blue mosque and the sultan ahmet tram stop which was very useful in the cold weather going to Emminounu for the spice market and beyond.
Couldn't research Istanbul much as it was a last minute trip and the staff turned out to be really useful in that regard. Breakfast was always ready by 7:30. Loved the honey cheese and olives!
The room we got i.e. 205 didn't have much of a view but we had a good deal of privacy and absolutely no noise. It was on the smaller side but had a nice comfy couch, very useful. A sturdy safe in the cupboard, nice bed, (don't remember keeping awake) a spotless washroom with everthing in order, rooms made daily.
The walls maybe thin as we did hear other guests when they walked about the passages but didn't hear anything once they were in their rooms.
All in all a great place which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
