very quaint quarters

We stayed just one night before we had to take our flight home. This was a very nice way to end our trip and the area was very picturesque. The room reminded me of a 1040's stage set in Turkish colonial interiors. We were picked-up at the airport and the drive along the seaport was very interesting. I had used up my turkish lira at dinner that night and it was a good thing that I had some dollars left in my purse to pay for the car service to and from the airport. The Beakfast was wonderful and there were many different foods to partake of such as cheeses, breads, pastries, etc. along with fresh coffee and turkish tea in a glass.

Great Value and friendly staff

The hotel was having renovations so it looked uninviting from the outside, but once through the door, the service, the lobby and the rooms were all terrific. It was a very moderately priced hotel and the rooms were spacious with hardwood floors and hand woven turkish rugs. The bathrooms are modern with lovely tile. We had 3 rooms so we saw different ones. The one with the double/king bed is the most ample and faces a quiet street out back. The breakfast is on the upper terrace with a view of the water. I would recommend this hotel.

fantastic location

The hotel is well-located for exploration of the Old City of Istanbul on foot. It is down a curving hill from the area of the Blue Mosque and within walking distance of the tram in Sultanahmet. This small (22 room) hotel has an exceptionally attentive staff. The generous full breakfast is a great way to start the day.
