It used to be a budget hotel of the Sirkeci Group, but was told few months ago there was a split among the owners and its only sister hotel now is the Sirkeci Mansion. We stayed here 4 nights on our first visit in Istanbul.
The location cannot be better, you are within a few minutes walk to the tram station, Tokapi Palace and Hagia Sophia. In fact it didn't take us long to walk to the Spice Market and cross over the Galata bridge.
The room is quite basic but comfortable. The shower area is a bit tight though. Two bottles of water are provided each day for coffemaking, an electric jug was provided for boiling water.
The breakfast was very good and fresh with wide selection of breads, hard boiled eggs, saussages, cheese etc and fresh honey, but the same thing everyday!
The staff are friendly and helpful. If you book directly and pay cash, you get 7% discount. Overall it is a good hotel for the price and location.
