This hotel must have hired the most talented photographer in the world for their website. While the location is decent, this hotel is very over-priced and not at all worth the money. The rooms are incredibly small and there's barely enough room to
open your suitcase on the floor and continue to walk around. The lobby is dingy and the hotel staff not very helpful. I would recommend staying elsewhere.
3 of us stayed 8 nights and had a very positive experience. Location in the Sultanahmet area is great, all major tourist sites nearby, public transportation convenient. Staff could not have been better.
this hotel is smack bang in the middle of the old part
of Istanbul ideal for the city and right by the blue mosque. easy access to the tram system that takes you anywhere in Istanbul. the hotel rooms are cleaned every day the breakfast is great
and you eat it with a view to die for from the roof top. everyone that is involved in the day to day running i found to be polite and happy to help when needed. the only downfalls was the TV pictures were bad and even tho it says the rooms come with iron it means there is one that all rooms share so take your own
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
go to the antakya restaurant great food great people
great price. if you out for the day take t1 tram then boat
taxi to other parts of the island its very cheap. car taxi is expensive and they drive like mad people on drugs
This hotel is small, as are the rooms; don't be mislead by the photos on the web site. However rooms spotless, staff friendly and helpful. The location is perfect for all the old city sights, everything within walking distance. We would return
with our expectations slightly lowered.
Upon arrival at 11:00 pm, we were told that we had a water problem and we had walk severl blocks to another hotel -- where the room for two was not bigger than 8x12 feet. The next day, we moved to the original hotel and were given a slightly
The people at the desk were extremely friendly, but for the price we paid, they are several notches belelow Motel 6. Not worth the price.
If your number one priority in an Istanbul hotel is its location and don't plan to actually spend much time at the hotel itself this might be a good choice. It is only three blocks from the Grand Bazaar and a short walk to the Blue Mosque, Topkapi
Palace and Aya Sofya. As for the hotel itself there were some issues. For starters the power went off twice while I was there, once for five minutes and once for several hours. The room had a "mini bar" which was actually a small, broken refrigerator with a few cans of warm soda and bottled water that was not replenished. The only bathroom amenity was a small, unwrapped bar of soap--nothing else. There was a continental breakfast available with a very meager offering. There was an old fashioned radiator with no discernible way of turning it off so the room was very hot. The staff was generally friendly and spoke English well.
