"A nice hotel close to centre of Sultanahmet area."
A nice hotel, located just 5 mins walking distance to the Blue Mosque. Located in a quiet side street means that there is no traffic noise at all.
A friendly bunch of staff who were attentive and very helpful throughout our stay.
It was a great experience and the apartment was very clean. Rooms were spacious and fully air conditioned. Apart from few very minor details the apartment was very good. The location was very close to the old historic centre of Istanbul and after long days out it was nice place to relax and recharge. I would select it again. Great experience.

"Friendly, family hotel, well situated for tourists"
Excellent welcome with hotel and surroundings well described. Our room was modern, clean and had a balcony but limited view. Standard of cleanliness, quality of meals and general calm atmosphere is great after a hard days sightseeing. We will definitely return.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. The surroundings were very relaxing. Went to the Bazaar every day for shopping. Breakfast in the hotel was very good and service was excellent. Rooms were clean and made up every day.
This is a brilliant place to stay - all of the staff are incredible helpful and welcoming. They had lots of information about tours and maps available. We had an upgraded room and it was spacious and very clean. The breakfasts were lovely and had a wide range of choice. There is coffee /tea available free all day on the terrace which has lovely views of the Bosporus. The location of hotel is amazing - very close to major attractions especially Blue Mosque [ lovely to hear Ad hem every day !]. It is off the main road so quiet yet with restaurants and shops close by. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to all.

It was a little difficult to find, but otherwise a very nice place for the price. We stayed for one night on a layover between the U.S. and Rome. We wanted a centrally-located hotel for the one night but at a good price; it met our requirements perfectly except for the kind of difficult location to find (It was on the street just south of the blue mosque.). The breakfast was Turkish continental. The mattress was hard, but for the price it was expected. The staff is at the desk 24/7. The terrace view is very nice. Overall, I would recommend it highly for the price.

"Well situated and comfortable hotel at good price"
A very good nice and simple hotel. This is not some fancy 5 star hotel, but if you want a clean, comfortable and very well situated hotel with friendly staff this is the place for you.
On arriving my check in was quick and efficient and the staff very friendly, I was shown to my room by another member of staff. Room clean and ensuite with comfortable bed, TV, aircon, phone etc. Powerful shower and towels, wash, soap etc provided. Also had a hairdryer which was a nice extra. Wifi was also free.
Located a couple of minutes meander from Taksim square on a pleasant road which always felt safe. As a lone female traveler I felt happy walking around at night and since the hotel is just off of a busy street there were always people about.
Breakfast was traditional Turkish cold buffet, tasty and plenty of choice: bread, meat, cheese, fruit, eggs, salad, honey, cake, pastry, juice, tea, coffee etc.
The hotel was in good condition and my towels etc were refreshed every day.
Overall a very pleasant stay and I would happily recommend and return again.
