This recently opened little hotel is just opposite the beautiful Aya Sophia, a very short walk from Topkapi and Blue Mosque. You can walk easily also to the Grand Bazar and other places in Sultanahmed. So if you come to Istanbul for sightsseing, you can hardly find a better starting point.
Being opened in 2013, the hotel is certainly modern and elegant.
The "grand de luxe room" on 4th floor was large, darkish, with a small terrace with two chairs, facing entrance to Aya Sophia. The bathroom was very nice and big, but without a bathtub.
Breakfast is served in the lobby - a Turkish/continental breakfast with a nice selection of cheese, olives, honey, cake. The deserts were different every day. The service was very friendly - not only at breakfast.
The hotel has free WIFI and it worked perfectly.
If you want to stay close to the main sights in the Old Town and are not worried about the price, go for this hotel.
