Great start to a quick 2 days in Istanbul

We were looking for a single room within 3/4 mile of a majority of major tourist attractions. Our itinerary included all that and more, so we planned on spending very little time at the hotel and just wanted a clean and comfortable bed to crash on at the end of the day and a clean shower for the start of the morning. This hotel provided exactly that. In addition, on our departure they arranged a bus to the airport for us (2 persons) at 3am for 13€. Hotel staff were very personable and even joined us for drinks and nargille at the end of the day.

be careful

they have 2different types of rooms one like on the pictures and second horrible box rooms...with bath just for skinny guests so don't let them cheat u and make sure u ll get one with city view. this hotel doesn't have any official star rating....in my opinion is like 2* and i m traveling a lot so know the differences. breakfast very basic. In any other European country u wouldn't pay more than 45e for that room

Good Historic Location

Located in the old city, it gives a very good view of the past of Istanbul. Lots of good restaurants along narrow old streets.

Short break holiday

Location is excellent and within walking distance of many sites. This is a bonus given the traffic in Istanbul. Rooms were small but clean and staff very helpful and friendly.

Great location, small rooms and don't ask reception for recommendations!

This hotel is in a brilliant location. Close to the main sights and very close to Gulhane tram station so really easy to use public transport from airport. Other reviews have been mixed about room sizes. They must have some large rooms but common with many other reviewers, ours was tiny. Just big enough for the bed, which for a short city break isn't too much of a problem since we were out the whole day and most of the evening. DO NOT ask reception for recommendations! Not sure if they were clueless or only recommending places they received commission from or maybe both! Asked for an ATM and directed to other side of town when I found one just on the corner of the street of the hotel!! When asked about a haman, again they suggested Gedikpasa bath, some distance away when they was actually one just behind the hotel which we discovered the following day. Gedikapasa was satisfactory for me (female) but was torture for my friend (Male). Would certainly not recommend as it is evident the people doing the 'massage' haven't had any training and have no clue as to what they are meant to be doing. Breakfast is disappointingly basic. Would have expected a bit more choice for a four star. If a great location is priority and you don't mind a small room and basic breakfast, this hotel is good value.

Hotel shuttle service price shown in Euros so was a bit shocked when the figure was alot higher! Takes a long time picking up from other hotels. Public transport will cost you 3TL to airport vs 14TL if you don't have lots of baggage. Go to Kybele hotel (not far) if you just want to chill. WiFi and really cosy. Great find.

Not up to the rating

This hotel is overrated. The rooms are super tiny. We opened our bags and we had to jump over stuff to get across the room. The closet would t open all the way out because it was cramped in a corner by the bed. The windows had no view. All I could see was another room witha similar window. On the positive side, breakfast was good so was the location. But around this area there are so many more options. Don't go by the pictures on their website.
