    Excellent and very warm staff, great breakfast, perfect location

  • Older travelers

    This was an excellent hotel for the money. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and very helpful. It was very close to all of the attractions of Istanbul - they wereall within walking distance and it was nice to have a pool, albeit small in a city hotel to relax in after a long day of sightseeing.

    My only negative about this hotel is the lack of storage space - there was only a very small wardrobe and no chest of drawers - fine if you dont mind living out of a suitcase.

  • Older travelers

    There were improvements, compared with the status some years ago. Staff is very helpful. Location is excellent for visiting the area of Sultanahmet.

    Closets are on the small side

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Hotel has excellent location for visiting the old city and bazaars, even Galata bridge crossing, take (half) day trips, and finding local restaurants in the neighbourhood or dine at the roof top restaurant. Personnel is friendly and very willing to help.

    Make sure you have a room at the quite side of the hotel, street in front is rather busy (tramway).

    The location is food. The room and staff were nice but there was not a sport facility as what I though just a small swimming pool also it does not have a nice view from the windo the photo was on the web for a see in the restaurant room was only a paint but in over all it was very nice place if you comper it with other hotels in Istanbul so I can say in deserve it's money

    I fo not like the view from window and there was not enough facility

    Friendly staff, solid breakfast, clean and comfy room

    orange juice was just an orange drink

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Location in the heart of the old city was perfect for any one with an interest in History. Close to Topkapi, St Sophia, Blue Mosque, the cisterns, the Hippodrome and the Bazaar. Hotel restaurant on top floor was good with lovely views at night to the illuminated Bosphorous Bridge. Hotel is close to other good restaurants too and ideally situated for the ferreis and the pleasure cruise boat. Liked having fresh honey from the hive.

    The breakfast was a little disappointing as the orange juice was not fresh.

    Very kind staff, great location, excellent price

    My head touched the ceiling when I was in the shower (I'm 1'85m tall).

  • Couple
    9.6

    Helpful and kind staff. We arrived with an early flight and we could check in already at 7am. Hotel is very good value for money, walking distance to many sights, tram just few metres away, lovely swimming pool, restaurant on the roof terrace. We also appreciated the daily news by Sirkeci Group with helpful tips on sightseeing and happenings in the city.

    Room a bit small, no proper place for suitcase, but not a major issue.

  • Family with children
    7.4

    I won't be the first to say about friendly staff and excellent location. And also not the first to mention that room was rather small for three persons. My parents and I are not very big (my father (the tallest) is about 165 cm), so we were OK. Think about how much space you need. And I want to say: I love Istanbul!!!

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Very good location. All tourist places are very-very close. Helpful and attentive staff. Also they have special person - "tourist advisor". She was very nice and provide us alot of useful information about publis transport, museums etc.

    Everything was perfect.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Triple room was good in size. Location of hotel was close to major sights and old town. Very polite and always friendly and helpful staff!

    Breakfast was just ok, could have been a lot better. There was poor ventilation in the room. Tramway in front of hotel and praying calls prevented from keeping windows open. Tramway made it difficult to get close to hotel by taxi.
