Good location

Nice little hotel. Really good location. Clean rooms and good wifi. Staff very willing to help, but some language issues (and their English was a million times better than my Turkish). The hotel didn't have a room for the first night of my three night stay. They never made any attempt to tell me about this before I arrived. In their defence, the moved me to a similar hotel a few minutes along the road, but it was a inconvenience. If this hadn't of happened, this would be a solid 4 out of 5

Good location

This was a nice hotel but their web page is a bit overstated. They do not serve meals at night but there are plenty of local restaurants. Bathroom was very good-fantastic shower !! Room was comfortable but lighting was at a low level. Needed reading lights. Location was excellent for all of the Sultanahmet sites. Local folk friendly and hotel staff extremely helpful. Trams were very good to get around. Generally we had a good holiday and enjoyed Istanbul

Nice, clean, quiet hotel. Great location!

Location was great. On quiet side street in old city, 2 mins walk to main street, and within 12 mins of blue mosque, HagiaSofia, Sultanahmet station, grand bazaar, etc The staff was friendly, effective, and helpful. The lobby was nice, clean, simple, with free water and juice all day. The breakfast was buffet style,decent # of options but quality and taste was just average. The rooftop, although basic, was a refreshing and relaxing place to hangout. We got a superior room with a balcony over looking the sea. The room was great. Spacious, clean, modern. The bathroom was also fully renovated with a rainshower. We had a very pleasant stay here. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a simple clean quiet spacious hotel close to all the main sites.

Great central hotel for central Istanbul

Fab location, only minutes walk from the old town attractions. Hotel is away from main roads, so generally quiet. Rooms are in good condition and clean. Breakfast is plentiful and fresh. Reasonable prices and nice staff but had to move rooms after night 1 due to problems with room allocations. Not a problem and was given free wine.

Do your research beforehand. Lots of restaurants in Istanbul serve ok food but some serve GREAT food. Have a look before you go. Barbecue House is a particularly good place to dine.

Great Hotel

The hotel has great amenities and staff is very helpful. We were leaving at 3:30 in morning for an early flight and they had breakfast out for us! The only problem we had was we were given a room with twin beds instead of a king bed which was weird for us as a couple. Location is a little far from main attractions but still walkable. Overall we had a good stay.

Wonderful, warm, welcoming staff

What a lovely little hotel. The staff and accommodation are gracious and warm. Breakfast is wonderful, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the bathrooms are far superior many I've encountered in other similarly-priced hotels. The staff is particularly noteworthy. I was working for part of my trip, and they were absolutely wonderful in calling me cabs and helping me plan travel routes to ensure I arrived at my destinations on time. They were equally helpful when I was looking for site-seeing assistance, and always up for chatting about local attractions, food, and experiences. Can't recommend them enough. The location is excellent for seeing the Old City; I will say that it's a bit of a distance from some of the city's newer attractions, and that cab drivers can have some trouble finding the hotel--carry one of the hotel's business cards with a map on the back of it to deal with that potential challenge, if you don't speak Turkish.

Super sightseeing break

This is a well furnished hotel with friendly staff. It is close to the Cemberitas tram stop. It is on a cobbled street not far from the main road which proved to be a quieter option. The area felt very safe. The rooms are tastefully furnished . Travelling as a three we were lucky to have a very special triple room involving a 6foot bed and a double sofa bed, all comfortable. It was a corner room, more like a suite. The rainfall shower bath was excellent and toiletries were provided. We usually rested for an hour on the roof terrace after sightseeing before going out again in the evening. Usually we were the only ones up there. You could take a drink up there and relax. Breakfast involved a choice of juices, water melon, strawberries, kiwi, and oranges. A meat and cheese selection, salad, cereals and yoghurt. Hot selection of eggs, vegetables and sausage. Fresh bread, bagels and croissants. Plenty! A good medium priced hotel.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Sultanahmet Buhara kebab house was an excellent 1st night introduction to Turkish food. An easy walk from the hotel . Although it was full when we got there they said there would be a table within 5 minutes. Good friendly service. Complimentary bread, baklava and apple tea. Wine is expensive so we had a beer.

Welcoming and comfortable in a good location

There were no problems here at all. Although the hotel and rooms were less spacious than suggested by the online photos, this is a clean and well-appointed hotel, with quite tasteful décor. Breakfast was good, with a good range of options. My room was comfortable, with adequate space, an excellent shower, quite good storage facilities and a non-alcoholic minibar. The location is excellent, provided one doesn't mind it being half way up a steep hill. There is a rooftop terrace but no drinks service. I would certainly recommend it - the staff are friendly but not intrusive. There is a smallish gym.

Great location

Hotel is ideally placed for all attractions that Istanbul has to offer being no more than 300 yards from a tram stop, the route of which takes you to all main tourist areas.The rooms are spacious and modern and the staff were most helpful. One small downside the hotel does not have a restaurant for an evening meal though this features on their advertising. Breakfast buffet excellent with both good hot and cold choices.

There a some small restaurants nearby but it is best to go to main road on which the tram runs for more choice. We enjoyed Hotel Loti 300 yards away and on the main road for food and great view from roof terrace.
