The location could not be better - a short walk from Hagia Sofia, the blue mosque, the underground cistern (NOT TO BE MISSED) and a chance to see whirling dervishes in a former Hamam. The staff could not be politer and more helpful. After sightseeing, hop the tram to a bazaar or two. And the cleaning staff really clean!

Room Tip: Take the "suite" which is actually only a larger room with a great balcony.

Very nice hotel, excellent location, friendly and helpful staff. For the price we paid it was amazing. Maybe not the best restaurant downstairs, but still good and staff amazing there too. For the good price I highly recommend this Hotel.

I was only here for a short stay, but you definitely get more than you pay for! The rooms are fantastic, and very very clean. All of the staff that I encountered were extremely friendly and more than willing to help. Especially Semih, thank you so much for your help!!

The location of this hotel is one of the best in town for tourists as you are a couple of minutes away from some of the Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia.

The staff is really nice and warm, their teams are pretty young which gives the place a relaxed and yet very professional feel, like a family-owned place but with international standards.

The rooms have a very zen touch, simple and white with hard-wood floors. Yet they are equipped with all the necessary modern equipment for your comfort.

Their restaurant also serves excellent food, it is quite a good place for romantic dinners but also amazing buffet breakfasts: no need to have lunch after that!

This hotel was integral to my great experience in Istanbul! The staff was wonderful, and the breakfast was tasty. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Really a great location! The staff helped with all of our questions, and treated us like family. Absolutely recommend this hotel.
