Hotel à proximité de plusieurs sites touristiques.

Accueil chaleureux, personnels disponibles et servdiables, belle terrasse avec vue sur la mosquée Bleue et la sainte Sophie, à proximité de tout ce qu'il y a à visiter. Excellent séjour à Istanbul. Le retour était très difficile.

Pros: Location
Cons: Breakfast could be improved, guest should not have to request staff to top up basic items such as milk and hot water, and tea bags!!!!
OK because of the location, however services could be improved.

Moskee en ontbijt

Posted 13-Apr-2015
hotel ligt zeer gunstig tov bezienswaardigheden. Minpunten zijn het zeer matige ontbijt, slechte staat van dakterras en het geluid uit de moskee vanaf 5.30 in de achtertuin

Close to all the attractions

Posted 13-Apr-2015
Great location. The Topkapi Palace was 5-6 min walk, and the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque about 4-5 min. The staff were very helpful. We arrived several hours before check in time due to our flight. But we needed a place to rest as one of us was feeling poorly. The hotel staff got our room ready in 15 minutes when they saw what we needed. They didn't disturb us until we were ready, and then promptly brought our luggage up on our request. The breakfast was nice and very filling. The room was clean, had a nice wood floor and a great heater, which we mostly kept off. There was a nice roof-top terrace which we did not use (too chilly and wet for the few days we were there). Loads of shops, restaurants and kebab places nearby. One of the restaurants had a "Sema" with a dervish. It was not a proper ceremony, but nice o enjoy a meal by.

Pros: Läget
Cons: Inget
Location: Nära till de kända moskeer. Grand bazar och alla fina trevliga caféer. Nära till team linjen också som åker till andra ställe.
Bra läge, Trevliga personal och bra service. Fast jag har blivit av 2 saker i mitt rum, vet ej om det var av misstag eller personalen har tagit de själva.

Family trip to Istanbul

Posted 17-Feb-2015
We had two adjoining rooms which were prefect for our family. The rooms were older but comfortable. The bathroom could have used a little better lighting. The staff was very helpful and friendly and the location was great. Did not look anything like the picture!

Excellent location and charming decor

Posted 02-Jan-2015
Pros: Location, decor, staff.
Cons: Hundreds of TV channels, but only 2 in English (1 news + 1 music). It would be helpful to have a english channels such as CNN, NBC.
Location: Most tours will pick up and drop you off at the hotel. Some require you to meet in the Blue Mosque garden area which is at about 100 steps from hotel.
Excellent location right next to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia and the T1 tram line 'Sultanahmet' station. Easy tram ride to grand bazaar, spice bazaar, Bosphorus. Charming decor outside and inside. The hotel is a converted residential building. It feels like a bed-breakfast with real hardwood floors, window treatments, wooden door panels, antique brass finished door knobs, plants placed outside on the window stilts. Updated/modern bathrooms. Great turkish breakfast, hot egg varieties, and excellent selection of bread, great tasting coffee. Very attentive staff. English speaking. The hotel can arrange airport transfers as well as all the local tours, dinner cruises with one day advance notice. One unusual thing is old school room key, with brass finish attached to a brass antique keychain with room number stamped on it. (So don't forget to lock the door once you are outside or inside the room by turning the key since that is the deadbolt.) Safe location. Excellent Turkish restaurant next door with patio seating. We enjoyed a patio dinner even when it was 1C and raining outside ,thanks to the patio covers and heaters. Lots of souvenir shops nearby. One thing to note, the restaurant on the property only serves breakfast and can serve coffee, milk all day, but for room service meals, they will order food from outside restaurants and bring those to you. Did not use room service, but I'd not worry unless on a dietary restriction.
