Enjoyed the 5 night stay with my daughter. The warm ambience was the first thing that greeted us the night we arrived. The place is tastefully decorated. The double room was very clean, so was the bathroom. I loved that we had two pillows each and the water pressure was great. There was also a hairdryer. Most important of all were the people - Yusof, Mehdi and Gunul (sorry If the spelling is off) and the cleaning lady (sorry couldn't recall the name), were all courteous, helpful and willingly shared stories and information. I also like the fact that it's near a mosque because the azan helps to know the prayer time. We could hear the train but were not really bothered by it. There's a fruit store and convenience store just beside the inn. The wifi signal is strongest at the lobby and the books on Istanbul are great to get info on the places you're visiting. Plus, the attractions are like 10 mins walk. Will definitely stay here again when I'm back in Istanbul. For me, it's a home away from home.
