The hotel is small but really nice: the rooms are not big but comfortable and clean. The breakfast terrace has a beautiful view on the Bosphorus. But what makes this hotel special is its location: 5 minutes walking from Topkapi, Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque.

The bestest place to stay in Istanbul. Walking distance to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topikapi and the Grand Bazaar. The staff are absolutely fantastic - very helpful and co-operative! Rooms are neat, spacious and just what you pay for. Recommend it to everyone who wants a taste of the old city and wishes to drown in the history and culture of Istanbul.

The hotel is in a good location walking distance to Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, restaurants and shopping etc. Good view from the balcony / breakfast area. The staff were helpful and friendly.

However, we were a little disappointed. It didn't look quite like it did in their website. The rooms were really small and dark as was the hallway and stairs. We were a group of seven so we took two doubled-bedded and a triple-bedded room. In all the rooms there was hardly space to place our luggage. The triple-bedded which I had did not even have a shower curtain in the shower area and everything got kind of wet! The breakfast was average.

They need to refurbish! We were glad to move to our next hotel.

The travel agency we used in Turkey set us up in this hotel and all I can say is Job Well Done. What it lacks in luster is made up with friendly enthusiasm and curtesy. We spent time is several much higher rated hotels in Turkey and this one was by far our favorite. The chef at the hotel was very good and we had excellent meals and service. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. If you are looking for a five star place that is cold and lacking in personality, this is not the place for you.

Room Tip: we had a corner room. Istanbul is noisy bring earplugs this place is in the city.

Great location- literally a stone's throw away from the popular streets with restaurants and shops. Less than a 5 minute walk from Hagia Sofia and the palace. Room was a bit outdated and no secure double lock from the inside of the room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast- average/good. Starts late at 8am but the staff allowed me to eat at 7:40am, as my tour bus was picking me up at 8am.
