Lovely stay in this boutique hotel
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well-located quirky boutique hotel in Istanbul. Eren on the front desk was great in helping us retrieve our wallet, which we had accidentally left in the taxi from the airport. Mohammed and Selma were friendly and attentive at breakfast. We would definitely recommend this hotel and would happily stay here again when we return to Istanbul! Thank you again to you all :-)

Hotel is in a great location, can walk anywhere in the neighborhood and close to the tram and ferries for getting to other areas of the city. Staff were nice and friendly. Only thing I'd say is that the hotel is showing signs of wear - furniture in the room was worn down, bathroom shower needs re-caulking etc. Decor is fun theme and it was kept clean, but I'd suggest some updates!
