Stayed here for 4 nights in June. Yusef is there day and night and is polite and extremely helpful with any questions you may have. After checking us in, he also circled all the tourist spots for us on a map and also showed us an eatery that’s very reasonable and not too touristy.
The location of the hotel is great! Close to all the main sites but away from the crowds in the Old City. About a 10 minute walk to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapli Palace, as well as the T1 tram line. It’s also walking distance to Grand Bazaar & Spice Market (30 min), plus traditional Turkish Bath (15 mins).
The wifi worked great throughout the property, AC in the rooms very handy in the summer, and breakfast was plentiful.
We look forward to staying here again at the end of our trip to Turkey. Prices are slightly higher due to being in the Old City, but worth the extra few dollars in my opinion.
