“Nice place to live when you are in Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

It is really a nice hotel, the room is clean and comfortable, the breakfast is delicious and the staffs there are very friendly. Within 4 minutes walk to get connected to the public transportation which can help you go to the famous places of historical interest in less than 15 minutes. The staff at reception can help you book some tour trips and can give you useful advice about sightseeing.

- Staff hospitality: they quickly changed our room to a higher floor for a better view. - Breakfast was decent and enjoyable with a great view - Location is near the tramway and overlooks the amazing bosphorus

It is true what the other reviewers said about the thin walls. Our room was next to the elevator door and we could hear normal conversations word for word of guests waiting for the elevator. So God knows what the guests outside heard coming from our room :) - Soundproofing walls and doors would be a good idea!!

excellent hotel.
1 - spotlessly clean
2- great staff - we like to travel off the beaten track and the staff were great in advising us on local's restaurants, bus and tram info and much more
3 - great location. 2 minute walk to the tram to eminonu\fatih\sultanahmet, 10 minute walk to Galata bridge. The area of Karakoy looks like a drab, commercial area, but it is full of funky restaurants, local eateries, nargillah bars.
4 - very small and intimate. all the staff know you and you feel welcome. a welcome change from giant faceless chains. Authentic Turkish style decor .
5- Doesn't have all the amenities of the big hotels (flashy lobby, gym, business centre etc) but more than makes up for it in warmth and welcome.
6 - we paid a bit extra for a room with a "partial sea view". skip it. the view is very partial. if you want a view of the sea, go up to the rooftop patio, with a cup of Turkish tea and just chill out there. great views.
In short, highly recommended

Room Tip: we paid a bit extra for a room with a "partial sea view". skip it. the view is very parti...

Firstly I like to say there was warmest welcome from owner/manager personally, that doesn’t happen at most accommodations. The staff are excellent – very friendly, sociable and accommodating and very helpful. Fantastic boutique hotel which I have seen the best in my Istanbul travelling. The hotel is in a wonderful location near many restaurants & attractions. The check in was fast, the elevators were always there when I needed it. The room was awesome! The bathroom and all areas were too clean. Having breakfast at the rooftop was really enjoyable watching amazing views of the sea and Galata. Overall I just loved and enjoyed my 7 nights. I would definitely come back with my family.

The hotel is an excellent choice if you are joining a cruise ship in Istanbul. You can walk to the terminal from it. My room was clean comfortable. The restaurant on the top serves breakfast with a great view of Istanbul's harbor. The staff are very warm and welcoming.

Believe me, if you planning to come Istanbul and if you have enough budget i hardly reccommend this hotel. Location is quite reachable, only 2 min distance from tram station. And very close to everywhere, for exp; both ferry station,Taksim square,old city(sultanahmet).
Hotel have amazing panoramic view from the terrace and breakfast room. Very clean rooms and staff are very helpfull, they are always ready to help their guests in any case.
I didn't see any negative things..
