“Incredible hotel - stayed TWICE”
Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

This hotel was so amazing that when we came back to Istanbul we stayed twice. The room was amazing as usual and spotless. I even checked underneath the bed and behind the sofa, and there were no dustbunnies. The breakfast served fresh fruits along with a nice spread of cheeses, bread, cold cuts and hot food. The mandarins and pomegranates are amazing when available. The hotel staff also treated us like royalty. Sometimes, on the second visit, they take things for granted but this is not the case at all. We had regular complementary, delicious Turkish coffee. I have not had such rich and tasty Turkish coffee in my life. The manager Yusuf was a gracious, accommodating and recommended the best places for Turkish delight. This hotel is better than any hotel I have ever stayed in Canada :)

Stayed February 2014

The staff couldn't do enough to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The rooms were clean and bright, perhaps a little too "cozy" for my comfort but for a city break, more than adequate. Location could not have been better within walking distance of just about everything!

I rarely write reviews, but I so depend on the truthful ones. The reviews on World Heritage are spot on!

We stayed for four days in two different rooms (we added on an extra night), so I'm comfortable with the accuracy of my review:

The service is friendly, helpful and sincere. The rooms are nicely sized, quiet, and beds are superb. The bathrooms are quite nice with excellent water pressure and tons of hot water. It is ultra clean. The hotel is quiet too. The Breakfast buffet (included) is ample, fresh and delicious, as is the ever present lobby buffet of coffee, tea, fruit and fresh deserts!

What else?? The location is superb, only a block from the epicenter of hippodrome/blue mosque. It is EXTREMELY safe (we walked in after midnight every night.)

Yusuf (the owner) is highly knowledgable of the area, kind and service oriented. He helped us arrange car rentals, flights and another hotel in Selçuk. He gave The low down on the Grand Bazaar and other merchants. He has no vested interest except his guests, and it shows!

Stay here. You won't regret it.

This is our very first visit in Istanbul & we stayed here for 5 nights with my husband and we had such a great time. Yusuf the owner was super good & friendly, you just feel like you're visiting a family member. I have some points to say to make it details. Firstly they arranged our pick up transfer from the airport to the hotel for free of charged. Secondly when you arrived, all the staff greeted you with a very welcome warm greeting and served us with the Turkish hospitality "turkish coffee". Than we asked some questions from Yusuf for getting around due to its our first visit and Yusuf was brilliantly helping us about all the places that we want to visit & told us which part to avoid (one areas is a bit dangers he said). You can ask everything from him and he'll had the answer. I called him Mr "google" for his knowledges for places and getting around hahahaa. Thirdly, the room. The room actually quit nice just a little too small especially on the bathroom. It's cleans just need a bit more space but other than that its quit comfortable especially the bed and their pillows. Than the next day, breakfast. We were so surprised to found so many foods and choices. We thought its just going to be a few things but they are generous to serve you with so many foods. The staff again were super friendly and kind. Just unfortunately they don't really speak good english and I think they just need to be a bit aware what need to be refill because couple times we found empty plate or milk and have to asked them. But they are really nice and hard to judge just for a few small things. So overall, we had such a great experience and not forget to mention the location. Only a few door steps from the Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet) just few minutes distance from other attraction places as Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern & tram station which can take you mobile and easily to the places.

Booked this hotel for a one night stopover on my way through Istanbul returning from a work trip.
The reviews were already great, and they weren't wrong at all.
The location is fab - really close to all the sights, and great considering the reasonable price.
We were greeted at the door and helped with our bags. Rooms were fab, newly-decorated and comfortable, with good showers/bathrooms.
The free safe and kettle were nice touches too.
Reception were super helpful with advising on places to see/go etc, and with free tea and cake on offer. Was also pleasantly surprised when i went to book a taxi to the airport, that I could get a free transfer from the hotel. Brilliant!
Unfortunately my stay was just too short, so I'l have to return to Istanbul to see everything properly, and i'll definitely be booking to stay here again! Thank you!

We stayed here overnight on 22.03.2014. The hospitality,service,cleanliness and breakfast were second to none. We arrived at 11:30 pm to be greeted with hot drinks. Yusuf and his staff were superb throughout. We have visited Istanbul several times before and experienced the good, the bad and the ugly☺. This hotel is marvellous and only 250 yards from the Blue Mosque etc. What more do you need?

This is a brand new hotel, less than a year from the time of its opening. I booked the hotel on-line for a two-night stay - checked in 10th February 2014. We decided to take the Turkish low cost carrier, Pegasus Air and thus landed at the Sabiha Gocken airport. It took us a while to get to the hotel via three modes of transport - bus, ferry and lastly, taxi - but it was worth it. The view was quite nice. The taxi driver took a while to find the hotel due to the new status. Like most of Istanbul hotels, this one was quite cramped but the decoration, reception, and room were nice. They even managed to slot a small elevator in the hotel, which is a big advantage for Istanbul hotels. Staffs were super friendly (if I recall correctly, the receptionist name is Salem and the multi-purpose bellboy is Emir). Salem explained in length anything we asked of him. Very informative on Istanbul. We checked in at night and it was no hassle (booked earlier) but it was a bit longer than expected.

POSITIVE:
# clean new room
# nice, clean bathroom
# quiet neighbourhood
# 5-minute walk to the Blue Mosque & the Egyptian Obelisk
# super friendly n helpful staffs
# elevator
# free coffee, tea, cakes at the lobby

NEGATIVE;
# no view
# small TV
# small bathroom
# weird breakfast place (like an attic or something)
