Reviewed 5 January 2014

Stayed here for 5 nights [Dec. 29, 2013 to Jan. 3, 2014]. The hotel is well located, a short walking distance to Arasta Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia & tram station. They have roof top terrace with lovely view, especially in the morning.. it's so peaceful! The heater in the bedroom & hot water system were working well & water pressure for shower is good. Wifi connection also no problem.
This hotel is highly recommended.

The hotel is a walking distance from a number of places of interest eg. Blue Mosque (abt 5mins), Arasta Bazaar (3mins), Hagia Sofia (10mins), Topkapi Palace Museum (15mins), etc. It is also located near to Sultanmehmet maramey/tram station. Very convenient to move around.

There are a lot of restaurants around the hotel so it's easy to find food. A supermarket is also around the corner.

The hotel room was spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. We stayed on the 5thr floor and had a beautiful view of the sea.

There's also a complimentary pick-up option from airport to hotel. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Great stay in Istanbul in this hotel!

We are staying here for 3 nights and the location is just perfect. It's so unbelievably close to the tourist attractions but also quiet. That's a great combination with kids. The quad room is just big enough for a double, a single and a sofa bed but could do with more storage space such as putting hooks somewhere for coats. The staff always have friendly, accurate answers to our questions and have even let us have a late checkout for free which we really appreciate. The breakfast room and the corridors to the rooms are a little cramped but that's understandable for the location. As others have said the view from the terrace is stunning. Free afternoon tea of cake and biscuits is a bonus. It's clean and well kept and Internet has been very reliable. Very happy.

It was a great hotel. Couldn't ask for a better location then this. Great family rooms with pack and plays available for infants(they make the pack and play's extra soft for the kids). The most friendly staff around always there to help you. It has the normal Turkish breakfast available.

Had a lovely stay at this hotel. Its located in a quiet street off the main road but near all the key sites (blue mosque, aya sofya, topkapi). Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Plenty of good eats nearby. Would recommend this hotel.

We could not have made a better choice. The location of the hotel is just down the hill from from the Blue Mosque. The neighborhood is touristic and very interesting. We were completely comfortable walking around the area at night.

The hotel is spotlessly clean and neat. The breakfast were traditional Turkish fare and were really delicious. The internet was fabulous.

Best off all the were the staff. They were extremely knowledgeable and helpful with tourist type questions. The views from the roof top terrace were breathtaking.

This is the perfect place to stay on your visit to Istanbul!

Room Tip: WE chose a room on the lower floor without a water view We were totally satisfied with it.
