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.

Great boutique hotel with a fantastic location

Posted 23-Jan-2017
Pros: Location, staff, cleanliness, good beds & linens
Cons: Rooms are European size.
Location: Close in to the old city sites of palace, mosques and Bazaar plus tram for anywhere else. Public transport very good and best to get around.
Great boutique hotel with a fantastic location to the Grand Bazaar Suly" Mosque and tram line. Second time staying. Staff so friendly. Breakfast was included and available most f the morning hours. Found our new home base in Istanbul.

Thank you very much for this lovely reviewand for all the beautiful words you said, Walt.The pleasure is all ours to have met you. Thank you for naming us your new home base. We are flattered. May we also kindly inform that, we have various types/sizes of rooms available; depending on your preferences. The room you stayed booked for your first reservation was the most basic room category, and smallest in room size. The next category rooms are about twice as large in area, and are currently available at great value for money rates.

The staff was pleasant, however, the breakfast provided can be expanded a little in choice.

Thank you very much for your nice words about the staff and your very valuable feedback,Khurram. We have very recently updated our breakfast choice offering arragement, where we offer our guests a list of "tomorrow's breakast items" to select from, handed to the guests on a daily basis. The guests are now offered to custom choose their own breakfast, among the 20 items on offer. The feedback we have been receiving about this new arrangement is very positive so far. Hope you enjoy it,too, should you choose to come to Istanbul again and stay with us next time, which we sincerely hope. All the best, Deniz Duyar

Bel hôtel très sympa et très bien situé

Posted 03-Jan-2017
Pros: Le sol chauffé de la chambre et de la salle de bain, génial quand on rentre trempé... La gentillesse et la disponibilité du personnel
Cons: Le petit déjeuner est copieux mais peu varié
A deux pas du tram pour se rendre sur les lieux d'intérêt s'il fait mauvais (nous avons eu trois jours de pluie et de neige, avec un froid glacial...), sinon à 15mn à pied de la mosquée bleue et de Sainte Sophie. Beaucoup de choses sont hélas fermées pour rénovation.

Thank you very much Valerie, for the very nice words you said. To clarify one point for our guests who might be interested, the heated floor that you enjoyed -as mentioned in your review - are at the "Junior Suite with Turkish Bath".

A great hotel

Posted 27-Nov-2016
Pros: The location is good for access to all attractions in the Sultanahmet area, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Aya Sofya and the bazaars. Tram access good.
Cons: Nothing really.
I had a great three weeks here in November 2016. Friendly staff, satisfying breakfast selection and I loved the omelettes.

Great hotel near Grand Bazaar

Posted 26-Sep-2016
Stayed here for 5 days in September. Very comfortable hotel walking distance from grand bazaar. It is only a few stops away from Topkapi museum and blue mosque making it a great location. The buffet breakfast on the roof terrace is wonderful and has a great view of the sea. The room is comfortable. Top hotel!

Lovely hotel in the Old City

Posted 21-Sep-2016
Pros: The foyer impression, the service, the location
Cons: Very little if anything
Location: Great location with the local commercial buzz and ready transport. A feeling of the real Istanbul
Absolutely deserves a 4.5 out of 5 rating. Gave everything represented in it's web site. Lovely circumstances, great and friendly courtesy on the part of all staff without exception. Breakfast on the roof top is up to expectation and beyond what for a smaller hotel. No way would I consider staying at a large hotel by comparison.

One of the best options to stay in Istanbul

Posted 18-Sep-2016
Pros: Everything.
Cons: For the first booking, I got an email from the management with details of airport transfers etc. The second time I booked this, no body interacted.
Location: Topkapi palace, Grand bazar, Blue mosque etc.
Weather you are alone or with family, this is one good option and worth the money spent. Grand bazar, Topkapi, blue mosque are all within walking distance. Above all the management of the hotel is very friendly and courteous. This was the second time I had chosen this hotel and will recommend to every one. No need to go for big brand names in Istanbul. You will never regret if you opt for this property.
