Overall enjoyable stay

Excellent location within walking distance of all major attractions. Breakfast was average, limited amount and variety of cakes and pastries in the morning, excellent selection of olives and cheese. Only one entry card per room, which meant we needed to ask the reception staff for entry if we arrived back at different times. Friendly, approachable reception staff.

Very Happy

The hotel is in the process of being completely renovated. The staff was wonderful, the room was very comfortable and the breakfast was on the roof so it had a spectacular view of the Bosporus. The neighborhood is touristy but it is within 10 minutes of lots of spectacular archeological sites. There are also lots of fun restaurants. One of the best places in our 3 week vacation.

Great Istanbul Hotel

Great hotel in a fantastic location for enjoying the Blue Mosque, Haja Sofia, Topkapi, Grand Bazaar. Clean, comfortable, very helpful staff, and the breakfasts on the rooftop were a perfect way to start the day. A bit noisy at night from the people on the street. Would return to this hotel in a heartbeat.

Great Location

Nice hotel with good breakfast. Most tables have Marmara Sea view, but if you go around the side you can see the Blue Mosque. [...]I'd say if you pay a lot for this place you'll be diasppointed. Pay a reasonalbe rate, and you'll be reasonably satisfied. My value rating is useless if you don't know what I paid. The rooms are pleasantly decorated.

Galata Bridge restaurants offer exceptional evening views. There are so many restaurants with the same menu, that they will fight to give you the best price. Take your girlfriend, wife, or mistress there.

Excellent room in great location

This hotel is located in Sultanamet, and quite convenient for visiting the Blue Mosque, Saint Sophia, Topkapi, the Basilica Cistern and the Grand Bazaar. The rooms are clean, with TV, safe, shower. There is a restaurant but no exercise facilities. The staff is friendly and helpful with tours. The hotel provides a shuttle to and from the airport.

nice place in good location

A good location to explore the old city. Clean rooms and helpful staff. Tap water is undrinkable and they charge for bottled water in the room. Guidebooks say that airport transport is free but it's not... it costs 30 euro each way
