Good location, Beautiful interior & Friendly staff

Posted 25-May-2017
Pros: Roof-top dining
Cons: Complimentary bottled water?
Location: Grand Bazaar where you could do your shopping
Overall, my stay with the hotel is extremely pleasing. When we first walked into the hotel, we were super amazed by old European-style interior. We were welcomed by the friendly receptionist and served with warm cup of Turkish black tea. Pros: Location is super good! The tram station is within walking distance and the Grand Bazaar is not more than five min walk. Breakfast at the roof-top terrace is an extremely pleasant experience. Turkish food served in a buffet style and you could get a nice view over the old city of Istanbul. More importantly, roof-top access is twenty-four hour and you could enjoy some drinks accompanied by the beautiful night scenic of the city. We were staying at the junior suites with Turkish bath and what you see in the photos are really what you are getting. Clean and beautiful interior. Turkish bath is new to us but we could figure out how to heat up the facilities ourselves. If you are unsure, you could always approach their staff. Cons: Overall, we have nothing to complain about our stay. If there is any, we think that the hotel should include complimentary bottled water.

Character Hotel close to the historic centre

Posted 22-May-2017
Pros: The hotel has an immediate impact as soon as you see it. There is great attention to detail and the lobby area and coffee lounge is beautiful to be in
Cons: Breakfast was a bit unimaginative and could do with a little more variety, particularly the hot food. Apart from that everything was perfect
Location: The Hotel is within an easy walk of the old town including all the star attractions. The Blue (Sultan Mehmet) Mosque, Hagia Sofia and Topkapi Palace
The Hotel greeted me with a local tea in the relaxing Ottoman style tea and coffee lounge. I checked in once I'd relaxed and was then shown to my room which was excellent in terms of decor, facilities and comfort. The staff are very helpful and the assistant manager was a fount of information. He didn't try to sell tours but gave me all the information to do what I wanted in my own way. He was also very interesting and knowledgeable about the city and its history. Breakfast is a fairly standard buffet breakfast but is served at the top of the hotel on a lovely terrace with a lovely view. The hotel is quiet and ideally located for those wanting to see the top attractions in the old part of the city. A five day ticket is good value at 85tl and covers all the historic places you'll want to go. There are also great views of the Bosperous. There are plenty of great restaurants and cafes to suit every taste and pocket. Turkish cuisine is superb and full of variety. The trams are cheap and make it easy to get to the Asia side or to other parts of the city. You need to buy a card and top it up with cash at the machines at each stop. It's a flat rate of 2.30tl for every journey whatever the length.

Lovely, quiet hotel in a perfect location

Posted 08-Mar-2017
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing.
Location: 2 minutes walk from the excellent tram service linking you directly to all the major attractions and sights and just 4 miins to the amazing Bazaar.
Loved every minute of our 4 night stay. Can't praise the owner and staff enough for their attentiveness and kindness.

Great , clean and quiet hotel.

Posted 19-Feb-2017
I have been coming to Istanbul for some time to meet our rug pickers and weavers. This hotel without a doubt was the best one I have stayed at. The entire staff could not have been nicer. They treated me like family.
