Pros: location
Cons: Accuracy of the web site photos.
Location: Walking distance to all important museums.
Can't complain about the location, 5 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque. Very basic no frills hotel does not look anything like its web site photos but if location is important I would recommend it.

“A nice, basic hotel in a great location!”

Posted 01-Jul-2014
  23 Jun 2014 Pros: Location, location, location! Cons: Limited breakfast selection, if this matters to you.... A nice, basic hotel in an amazing location. Literally a 2-minute walk from the Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia,a 5-minute walk to the tourist hub of the city and a the Sultan Ahmet tram stop, a 10-15-minute walk (or 2 tram stops) from the grand Bazaar and 3 short tram stops from the Spice Bazaar and port area. Pleasant and helpful staff and management. Rooms were basic, clean and comfortable. A slightly larger breakfast selection (similar to other comparable hotels in the area) would make a huge difference. It was mostly a cold selection of salads, cheeses and meats together with some scrambled eggs and some sliced chipolata in a tomato-ey sauce (and unfortunately these too were often cool). Some fried options would have been nice. And some cartons of pure juices wouldn’t go amiss – during our stay there was only a strangely thick, rather sickly-sweet orange liquid available. The coffee was also a very strong Turkish variety which was not to everyone’s taste. There was a great view from the roof terrace both of the mosques and the sea, however the bar there was not open when we stayed which made the rooftop eerily uninhabited (while other terraces we could see nearby were buzzing). Overall a very nice and convenient experience, and we would be very happy to stay again.

Best location

Posted 01-Jul-2014
Pros: The staff are good and very helpful...
Cons: Room infrastructure like Airconditionair is needed to be fixed in room no 201
Location: The hotel is very near to Blue Mosque, Hagi Sofia, Topkapi Palace, Sultahmet Tram station, Grand bazar, many other tourist places.
The breakfast is good. The food options near hotel are good. The look at Blue mosque at night is awesome, you can do that each day. If you apple tea, please dont but the apple peices sold in grand bazar. Look for Elma instead. The Tea glasses in which tea is served, you should buy them in spice bazar. Do lot of bargaining for any thing you want to buy.

Staff is friendly and can speak english. Location is perfect, all attractions within walking distance. Breakfast is not very good, although plenty of options but no fried eggs, croissants and english tea available.

Great Terrace view, great location but tired room

Posted 10-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
Reception, checking in, Mustafa was very helpful. Booked an executive suite, but was a little disappointed with the quality of the furnishings and layout. However this didn't spoil our stay and we grew into liking the room. Bathroom was extremely warm due to no ventilation or air conditioning. Terrace view was fantastic, "its the closest tower next to Sultan Ahmed Masjid". Can clearly hear the Adhan and jamaat due to the close proximity to great landmarks. Staff booked us an airport shuttle from hotel - via email contact, and then return back... Superb air conditioned Mercedes Vito. Breakfast was literally the same every morning.

Wonderful hotel with helpful staff!

Posted 23-May-2014
Pros: location, room, breakfast offerings
Cons: People should know that the calls to prayer from the Blue Mosque are quite loud, since the hotel is so close.
The location, although hard to find at first, was fantastic: right between the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The staff offered a lovely Istanbul breakfast, and they were very helpful with information about how to get around the city.
