We have stayed here twice now. It's in a fabulous location in Sultan Ahmet, about 3 minutes walk from Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Both of these iconic places are clearly visible from the rooftop terrace, as is the sea, so watching the ships passing and dolphins leaping out of the water is possible. The pension rooms are super clean and recently re-decorated. Air con is not provided in the pension, but they do provide a large pedestal fan if you want one. It's a family owned and run business. Everyone is very helpful and obliging. Breakfast is included and is served on the rooftop terrace. They don't serve alcohol here but if you want to buy your own and drink its no problem. Wifi works well. Great value in istanbul!
