Sultanhamet,l

The hotel was located very close to the main tourist attractions in the area. The rooms were comfortable and not too small. The staff was very helpful and provided recommendations on restaurants, transportation and tourism . We were satisfied.

Hotel staff made great difference.

Located near blue mosque (however can be bit tricky to find first time). Once at the hotel, Staff gave great service and were really keen in ensuring the trip as enjoyable as possible.

Great location, great little hotel!

The hotel is within easy walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia, and Topkapi Palace. Also close to tram line that can take you to Grand Bazaar and to the Spice Market and across the Golden Horn. There are views of the Marmara and the Blue Mosque and wall of the Hippodrome. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful and the place is very cozy.

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

Don't take a taxi from the hotel. They will take you the long way around so as to charge you more. Walk to the tram - the Sultanahmet stop. It's a bit of a long walk but I did it quite easily even with bad knees. There is only one small uphill segment.

Well located for major attractions

Well located for major tourist attractions, shopping and public transportation. Hotel staff very helpful in suggesting restaurants, shopping, and how to use public transport. They arranged transport to and from the airport. Breakfast was very good. Would stay there again.

Rooms

This should not be considered 4 star hotel. I would give only 2 star. Only the reception staff are good. Room service is very bad. We have to ask for shampoo & soaps every evening. In winter only heating is on. Therefore it is very hot. The mosque prayers are heard at around 5 am. So everyone was getting up in the morning. The amount we spent on this hotel we could have got a better deal if we book it separately in a different hotel.

Realy nice little good value hotel

Really nice little hotel very close to the centre of the old part of the city hence everything was in walking distance. The reception staff were very helpful and the standard of cleanliness was top rate. Mini bar, telephone, air conditioning and television were all provided as was free access to the Internet. Advice and information regarding guided tours, taxis and the like was forthcomming. The only minor negative point was that the dining facilites in the evening was somewhat limited which, as we, like most visitors preferred to "eat out" wasnt a problem. Should we choose to visit Istanbul again, we would have no hesitation in staying at this hotel again. It has our recomendation. G J Kenedy

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Be careful of bartering in currency other than the Turkish Lira. Exchange rates get lost in the "heat" of the negotiation. Bargain for everything.

Disappointed

The hotel did not match the description of the hotel. It is a good location and the staff is friendly. However, I would not describe it as "first class", "boutique", or "monmumental rooms". Even though the hotel was about 1/4 booked during the off season, they assigned me the worst room in the hotel. Specifically, it was the room nearest to the open stairwell, faced a wall view, second floor above the lobby, and construction noise was loud because of the building renovation occurring on the other side of the wall in my room. The bed was twin size. Given that the hotel was not even 1/2 booked, it was not necessary to assign this room to me as nearly any other room would have been a better alternative. Make sure not get room # 11.
