We have been travelling for several years. This hotel meets our every needs plus extra. Excellent location, we are able to go everywhere within walking distance. August is the hottest month there and hottest year in Europe. Since we stayed in central downtown, we were able to come back to our air conditioned room and rest every day between 1 to 4 pm. Room is very clean. Breakfast is abundant. Staff are extremely friendly. The last two evenings of our stay, we were craving for watermelon. First I doubt I would get it, as hotel doesn't offer watermelon except breakfast. To our surprising, we were offered a full plate of watermelon. We were shocked. I highly recommend this hotel.

We chose this hotel based on other reviews on Tripadvisor, and we were delighted. We were collected at the airport in the evening and our journey to the hotel took approx 30 mins. Our driver spoke little english but tried his best to point out certain things to us. We were welcomed at reception most enthusiastically by a very friendly, happy young man who could not have done anymore for us. We were given a welcome drink, maps, telephone numbers & advice on things to see & do etc. We were escorted to our room, it was a fairly small room (triple) but not unexpected as we had been told about this when we booked. The room was perfectly adequate, as was the bathroom. Breakfast was a treat - an excellent selection and we did 'over-indulge' most mornings. We found all the staff to be helpful, friendly and always polite. This was our first trip to Istanbul but will not be our last. It was Ramadam when we visted but this did not affect anything, maybe the restaurants were a little busier in the evening when we ate but this enhanced the experience rather than hinder it. Upon leaving we were presented with gifts of Turkish Apple Tea and Turkish Delight, we all thought this was a very nice & thoughtful touch. I have been in contact with the hotel since to thank them and say what a lovely time we had and received a charming & prompt response.

This hotel is a little old and worn so when we first arrived we were a little turned off. As my husband put it, all that was missing was the outline of the body in the hallway... BUT it turned out to be perfect for our touring of the city. We were within walking distance of ALL of the major sites and right on the tram line if it was a rainy day or you didn't want to walk. very easy to get over to beyoglu as well. If you have a short period of time and want to see a lot, you should stay here. Our hotel room itself was clean and quiet. good water pressure. Wireless internet was a little spotty at times. didn't love the breakfast. It is a small hotel so the staff recognize you and are very helpful.
there is a pool in the basement but don't choose this hotel based on that
