My husband I and I stayed here for 4 nights and we loved this hotel. The rooms were very nice and the location was wonderful. The quite location was surprising. We were able to walk to all the major sites and return to a very quiet place in a very busy city. The garden out back was a refreshing place to sip tea after a busy day touring. The complementary wine and fruit was a nice touch. We would both stay here again and recommend it to our friends.

We loved this place. Excellent attentive service, beautiful room, and a most relaxing garden terrace and restaurant. It's in a quiet modest neighborhood, yet just a few minutes' walk to the Hippodrome and Blue Mosque. We will return to this hotel!

Me and my wife stayed there for 5 nights. We've changed the room 2 times, first because they gave us a better room than our reservation and the second time because they gave us a poor room and we've asked them to change it.
The floor rooms are very noisy, they're right near the street's sidewalk.
The rooms look more like they belong to a 3* star hotel instead of 4.
Breakfast was average, little diversification.
The staff was friendly and helpful.
Good location, near the Sultanahmet's center.
Parking nearby.

Room Tip: not the ground floor

Close to a number of the main historic sites including the Blue Mosque, this Sultanahmet located small hotel takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a refreshing break in its attractive and comfortable garden. Rooms meet the basic needs and the service is good overall - the aim is to please including a welcoming drink, arranging tours and recommending restaurants.

Room Tip: 1st Floor may have garden outside window and thus some noise. Not a problem in winter, of course...

The great location in the heart of Sultanahmet is not what made this hotel excellent, rather the fantastic staff, who bent over backwards to make our stay as comfortable as possible and more like a home away from home. The maids kept our room spotless, the front desk assisted us in everything from booking tours to restaurant/club recommendations, and the wait staff not only kept our wine glasses full but we're more than gracious when tutoring us in our Turkish phrases crash course.

Our room was typically small though still comfortable. The courtyard was always welcoming and fully stocked with water, fresh fruit, cookies, etc, free of charge. The simple breakfast buffet was a more than adequate beginning to the day. The free wifi was also a huge convenience.

Walking distance to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, as well as the tram which will take you to Taksim for more restaurants or nightlife. Look forward to staying here again!!

Room Tip: We had a street level room and though not noisy would prefer garden room in the future.
