My husband and I stayed at the Elite Kasseria Hotel for 6 days and was made to feel very much at home. It is a new family run hotel and they could not do enough for us. Very welcoming, from staff and family. Mama is always cooking and giving little samples of food to taste. Breakfast was good, the usual cold salads as well as Mamma cooking various hot dishes.
The room was large and very clean. We were within walking distance to the main attractions, and a couple of minutes to the Gulhane tram stop. Wi-fi good.

We stayed at Elite Kasseria Hotel 5 nights. The hotel is brand new, our room was nice and clean. It looked exactly like the pictures we had seen. The location is excellent, right in the heart of Sultanahmet, very close to all major attractions. The wifi connection in the room was perfect. Very friendly staff, mama is a great cook! Very good value for money. Recommended.
