“A Very Comfortable stay”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

A very cosy and homely hotel right in the middle of the tourist places. Very charming and smiling staff. Very good room, with lots of drinkng water, good tea & coffee arrangements, very good toiletries. They serve a good breakfast. The roof top Imbat restaurant is very good, but you must book your table in advance!! A very good to place to enjoy your stay

Located in the Sirkeci area, close to Sultanahmet, you are really near to most major sights.
Rooms are smallish but very comfortable. As the hotel is on the tramline and in a busy area with bars and restaurants, I guess you should ask for a room at the back though. Breakfast is reasonably varied and good quality. Staff is very professional and helpfull. By the way, the rooftop restaurant is really very good !

Fantastic location. Room was at the rear of the hotel and so no issues with noise. A bit on the small side, but was clean and met all of our needs. Breakfast was varied and plentiful.The restaurant terrace has fantastic views and the food was superb.

I had recently broken my ankle and the staff couldn't have been more helpful and considerate.

We would definitely recommend the hotel and plan to go back to stay in the future

Room Tip: Request a room at the rear if you are sensitive to traffic noise.

Pros:
- good location right on tram line (nearest station is Gulhane); Hocapasa Sokak (lots of eating places) is across and up the street
- easy walk to Topkapi Palace and Sultanahmet Square and its major attractions
- room was clean, nicely decorated, spacious enough, with nice bath amenities, slippers, bathrobe, and a bowl of Turkish delight included
- breakfast provided a hearty start for the morning with a good selection of hot and cold foods, including squeeze yourself fresh orange juice
- good Wi-Fi reception in room; also have Internet room with printer available on lobby level along with a bar
- rooftop terrace restaurant requires reservations; it is supposed to be very good but I did not try it
- all staff were very knowledgeable and friendly

Cons
- rooms facing the street have Juliet balconies; even on the 5th floor there is street noise; didn't bother me but others may wish to reserve a quieter room

Free pickup from the airport after a transcontinental flight can't be beat. Welcome tea and short intro to the neighboring sites. Very clean, though small room. Breakfast was plentiful and varied. Great rooftop restaurant (Imbat), one of the highlights of our trip.
Best part, though, was the heated basement pool. Perfect temperature. Great after a day of exploring. The area of the hotel very touristy, but we're tourists, right? Whole bunch of restaurants within walking distance, and all the important sites just a short walk from the hotel.
Very friendly, helpful staff. Good value for the money.

We stayed at the hotel for 8 nights and had a room at the back of the hotel, so noise was not an issue. Whilst the rooms are small they are more than adequate, very clean, comfortable and functional. The location of the hotel, whilst on a main thoroughfare, is excellent within easy walking to the main attractions and to the port for a ferry to the Asian side or a Bosphorus cruise. Ignore all the street cruise vendors and take a Turyol (government) boat for the cruise. The tram stop for a tram to Beyoglu and Kabatas for the Dolmabache Palace or to Chora for the Church of St Saviour (under restoration) is 3 minutes walk from the hotel. The rooftop Ambit restaurant is first class with good food and excellent service to go with the spectacular view. What gives the hotel 5 stars are the staff and the location. In all departments the staff were friendly, knowledgeable and most helpful -the guests were their priority. On check in we were given a drink and a guided tour on the map of Istanbul as to suggestions for visits. It has no pretensions of grandeur but is an excellent base to explore such a fascinating city.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back obviously have no street noise.
