This hotel is probably the nicest I've stayed at. Not luxurious, but very nice. The hotel staff is very friendly and caring, without feeling intrusive.
The hotel is not in the tourist area, but right next to the big sulamaniemosqe. The hotel is placed on a hill, which means that you have a lovely view from their roofterrace over Bosporus and the Golden horn. And it only took a short time time walk down to the central harbour with the spiesmarket and the new mosqe. A little longer to walk back to the hotel uphills...
The area is the old parts of Istanbul, where the rich people used to live during the ottoman empire. Today the area is sadly dilapidated. The steet is a part of UNESCOs worlds heritage and in urgent need of repair.
I warmly recommend this hotel to people who like to get of the tourist center. After a long day of sightseeing was the small pool valuable.
