Damp sheets, window that didnt close properly,mold in shower, no holder for shower head, lites that didn't work, no hot water and when the sink didn't drain, my wife went ballistic...we didn't stay the nite and when they saw the fire and rage in my wifes eyes, they refunded the down payment....Soo very happy we left

Though this place is fairly squalid, we were happy to stay there three nights as a last-minute choice. The staff was friendly and -- we thought-- completely upfront. Upon leaving, we reserved a room for two nights for our return in one week. Omar the desk clerk took our money (pre-payment in full) but upon our return somehow didn't have the room and steered us to a total dump around the corner, for the same price. Don't stay here. And don't front any money for a future reservation.

I have stayed 3 times at this nice hotel. It is a family hotel with the best location in the area if Sultanahmet in Istanbul. Near to both Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. All rooms are now being refurbished with new bathroom and furniture. Also the terrace, with a beautiful view of the Marmarasee, shall be changed to a lovely restaurant.

They treated me well giving me a small room on the 3rd floor with a great view of the Bosphorus. They are concerned about their image and asked me to write something nice in Trip Advisor. Obviously they have improved the breakfast as it was quite good, however, the coffee was instant. I drank the tea. Yogourt, fresh fruit, fresh baguette, egg, cold sausage, cheese, tomato .....plenty of food with a stupendous view.
My bathroom was sorely lacking in maintenance and the shower was 2' x 2.5'. Dont drop the soap..... you cant bend over to retrieve it.
After reading the reviews, I was worried it would be a bad choice but in the end I was satisfied,.... location, location, location

Ideal Location of this hotel, Its clean and cool. Staff are very hospitable. Take moquito repellent as you will be scarred like me all over if you dont take precaution!!! The rooms are tiny but me & my wife werent bothered as we were constant sight seeing.Breakfast was amazing the best ever. You dont need a guide, everything is right infront of you. But you will need a map though to navigate around. Hotel is literally steps away from the BLUE MOSQUE. The atmosphere is Sultan Ahmet is electric, scenery is beautiful, architecture is amazing. The Airport is far from the hotel. quickest way is to get a private taxi which costs about 80 Turkish Liras which is about £35. The airport Sabiha Gokcen must be about 15-20 miles away as it takes over an 1.5 hours. During traffic it could take over 2 hours! Ataturk Airport is the closest which is about 3 miles from SULTAN AHMET Overall a memorable experience i shall never ever forget.
