The hotel is a new converted wooden old house in Orotakoy. Staying at the hotel you will never feel it is a hotel, it is like a home, the lady owner Mrs. Semiah, and the manager who happens to be her niece are very nice and helpful, and they make you feel taht you are staying in their house not their hotel. The rooms are well appointed and designed in a very (Turkish) style, spacious, and most important the hotel is in a quiet area, only 500 meters from the famous Orotakoy area, which is a major touristic attraction in Istanbul, the hotel is always 5 minutes by Taxi from Levent, and many shopping malls, also you must visit Ulus park which is few minutes by taxi, or walking.
The food was excellent, and you have a wide choice of rooms, since they have five or six types.
