Great location, delightful hotel

Posted 18-May-2015
Pros: The staff were lovely - helpful, pleasant and cheery. The location was perfect - easy walking distance to Sultanahmet sights, Grand Bazaar, Topkapi.
Cons: The small size of the room was only an issue in that some more storage space for clothes and table-top items would have been welcomed.
Location: Fabulous location for sightseeing, restaurants, shopping, bars, public transport, experiencing and enjoying Istanbul!
I was disappointed to learn on arrival that the roof-top terrace was undergoing renovation, as I had booked this hotel specifically for breakfast with a view! However, in all other respects we found this hotel very satisfactory and would definitely return. We were offed a choice of rooms, one in the main hotel and the other in the nearby annexe. We opted for the annexe - noisier, overlooking a vibrant street, but great fun to experience the street life (and I'd brought ear-plugs and an eye mask, so no issues with sleeping). Breakfast was in the main hotel and was a buffet arrangement, so we were able to choose what we wanted from the ample range of food on offer. All in all, it was a great experience!

Little hotel that is close to Taksim Square

Posted 29-Apr-2015
Pros: Nothing ostentatious, so it is very well priced, handy to a whole range of restaurants and Taksim Square.
Location: Taksim Square, along with all the mosques around it (this is also where most tour buses leave from). Also a short walk to the Grand Bazaar.
This is a lovely little hotel. Rooms are standard, well appointed and comfortable beds. The staff are friendly day and night.

Nice hotel. Great price. Helpful staff. Close to the blue mosque, aya Sophia, main square, museum, restaurant. Almost everything is walk distance. It's also on a quiete street so it feels nice.

hôtel très bien situé

Posted 01-Apr-2015
Pros: sa situation, son personnel disponible,son petit déjeuner.
Cons: la salle de bains, l'ameublement
Location: quartier de charme, très vivant à proximité des plus grands monuments d'Istanbul: Ste Sophie ,Topkapi, mosquée bleue, etc..tramway tout proche.
hôtel un peu rustique -ameublement vieillot-petite salle de bains-grande douche- lit très confortable-petit déjeuner excellent et copieux- personnel très serviable et compétent-dans une rue calme-situation idéale pour visiter à pied le centre historique (Topkapi, Ste Sophie, Mosquée bleue etc...) à recommander à ceux qui ne sont pas des fanatiques du luxe et qui préfère le côté pratique...

One week holidays. Perfect location for main atractions you will save money and many options nearby. Hotel good and personel friendly. Breakfast not that good. Restaurant at the corner good quality. Hotel needs some upgrades and improve noise insulation.

A great choice....

Posted 08-Mar-2015
Pros: The location and price were the best features.
Cons: Jacuzzi bath jets could have worked, otherwise no issues.
Location: Excellent location near the Blue Mosque and Aga Sofiya.
We stayed here for 4 nights in February and really enjoyed our time there. The hotel is in a fantastic location only minutes from the Blue Mosque on a quiet back street. The room was a good size with a partial sea view. It was beautifully presented and appointed and despite from the spa jets not working in the bath everything worked great. Breakfast was amazing with lots of local produce including a full honeycomb and hand made preserves. The staff were fab and always smiling. A real gem that was extremely competitively priced.

Super Lage, miese Aussicht

Posted 21-Feb-2015
Hatten eins der billigeren Zimmer mit Blick auf die 1m entfernte Mauer mit Klimaanlagen. Zum Glück waren wir im 4. Stock, sonst wäre es sehr dunkel gewesen. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und wurde auch täglich gut gereinigt. Die Ausstattung ist schon recht abgewohnt. Das Frühstücksbuffet war gut, die Lage des Hotels super.

Wonderful location. Hotel Staff are very helpful.

Posted 20-Feb-2015
Pros: Gentle Staff. They always helpmed me with the direction, advice about attractions, lifting bagadges and baby buggy.
Cons: I was looking forward to enjoy roof area. I can see a nice view from their but that place seems a bit run down. Maybe because it was winter for them.
Location: Every attaction is near. Blue Mosque, Tapkapi Palace, Nice resturants.
Stayed there for 3 days. Nice location. Staff are very helpful and friendly. I would recomend others to visit this hotel. It's a value for the money. Staff upgraded our room and gave us a huge baby cott with no extra cost. Breackfast has wide variety of selection. Room was comfy. I had low expectation after seeing some of the negative reviews but I am one satisfied customer.
