First of all hotel is comfortable and clean. Hotel includes the breakfast. Breakfast and foods are delicious and always fresh. Hotel close to Hagia Sophia mosque, Sultanahmet mosque and Basilica Cistern. You can go to historical places easily. Receptionists are good and helpful. As far as I am concerned it’a good place to stay.

Fantastic stay in Istanbul with helpful staff. The hotel has great location less than one minute from sultanahmet tram station, hagia sofia, blue mosque , top kapi palace and basilician . Very good staff espically ayhan , raouf and halim. Good breakfast every morning from the helpful two ladies . Thanks for all the staff

Beautiful rooms, good internet, good breakfast. Perfect positioning - near tram station and Blue Mosk. 10 min walk from the sea. But the best part is the personnel, friendly and helpful ( i was sick and they halped me with all I needed ). This is your home for the time you live there.

Overall it was a good stay. Positives: Very nice Hotel staff,everyone was very accommodating and kind. Hotel room was cleaned regularly. Fresh towels. Gave recommendations on where to visit. Helpful staff. Room was very cosy and had good layout. Lots of room. Negatives: Same Turkish breakfast everyday (understandable but could have switched it up a bit) Food was far too oily and bland (did not have sea food) I went when it was very cold and heating was not on sometimes or would be turned on late at night! Lots of talking from staff at night, hard to fall asleep. Overall good.

Great location. Close to all sites by foot or local transport. Very helpful staff. Nice food in restaurant but breakfast a bit boring - same everyday. Close to other highly recommended places to eat. Very clean. Would definitely go back. Late September and tourist trade very down - sad. Great people.
