the hotel seems not really big, but has 6 level for rooms, and great rooftop views for breakfast at first when i enter the room, i see its small room. but the furniture looks good (y) the staff are friendly.. but i dont know if its normal in istanbul, but i see they dont refill the tea/coffee provided (only first time) and i need to leave note at my room to change/clean my blanket, not just fold it the breakfast was lots of foods provided (turkish breakfast, i think) .. but yeah almost same everyday.. but overall.. they are good.. thanks to turgal and hur for their friendliness

The Air Conditioner in our room was not working and we told the hotel management plenty of times. We were first promised it will be fixed however nothing was done, the next day after we pressed the issue further we were told that the repair guy was on a holiday and nothing will be done. We were not given another room. so in short we payed and got bad service, a hot room and restless sleep. Not only that but we also found a bug in the room. And when checking out we were charged for three bottles of water which we did not take. All in all it was not a pleasant experience.

This little hotel was the perfect two day stay for me and my boyfriend in Istanbul, it was clean, safe, quiet and the views from the restaurant/breakfast room were amazing. The breakfast was lovely and it was very reasonably priced for our two day stay through The rooms were simple but extremely clean and comfortable, there are tea and coffee facilities in the room which were great if you were like us and been travelling round the city all day! Staff were very helpful and friendly and the hotel is nicely located near to the Galata tower..will definitely be using this hotel again for future trips to Istanbul.

The top floor restaurant where breakfast is served, is probably the best feature of this hotel. The location of the hotel, next to the Tunnel, constitutes another asset. Otherwise, the services are okay for the price. Staff friendly. A good base of outdoor trek in Galata /Beyoglu, but don't expect much more.

Great hospitality from the Manager and Staff, very helpful and kind, they all speak English which is something rare in turkey. The best thing about the hotel is that its extremely central with the most perfect location every near all the important transportation hubs and Isteqlal street that ends with Taksim Square. The rooms are very clean and neat, the room service are great, the hotel is very calm and cosy, isolated from any noise yet near all the action. Breakfast was more than awesome with a lot of variety, yet it doesn't change everyday, every morning its the same, but i had no problem with that cause it was awesome and delicious. The room has everything you need, but no tea, Nescafe or sugar, you have to buy them from the supermarket across the street. But Go for single and double rooms, keep away from triplets, very small and not well equipped as single/double. i Took a big station taxi for 4 people with 5 bags from Ataturk airport to the hotel for 55 TRL, a drive that takes less than an hour, if you are fit and don't mind dragging your luggage across some uphills, you can take the metro to the hotel. Overall i recommend hotel as a perfect destination and location for a nice vacation in turkey, knowing that in my opinion turkey needs at least 10-15 days in order to enjoy and explore with a pocket money of 60$ per day which will be more than enough, including eating and drinking out with a lot of ice cream ;) , transportation, touristic tickets for sightseeing, and some nice shopping.

I went go several hotels in Istanbul but never found one like this one. The hotel is located beside the metro station which makes easy to travel around Istanbul and come back. The hotel is located close to the bridge to sultanahmed area which allowed me to go walking up to those old mosques and avoid costly hotels in sultanahmed area. From this hotel I visited most of Istanbul by the metro some times by taxis for places like takism. Almost All the staff in hotel are very friendly and speak English very fluently which enabled me to gain all info I needed e.g. how to use the metro as it is the cheapest way to move around Istanbul. Tamer is one of the staff who was very helpful to me. the manger of hotel is alos helpful and has very nice personalty. whenever I come back to Istanbul, it is first choice.

Great service, we had a few faults in the room but they were fast to fix things. Breakfast was lovely on the terrace and the staff were friendly and helpful. Staff in the reception were smiley and welcoming ever time we got back to the hotel. Overall great place to stay for a family holiday.

Perfect place :) very close all turist attraction :). Metro station 15 meters from hotel :) lovely place for couple ... View from restaurant amaizing ... Very clean hotel :) I didn't like all staff ... But Tamer Tolga lovely person .... Cleaning girls so good and nice ...

The quality of services was very good and staff immediately response for any requirements, very good location, just 5 minutes or less walking to Galata bridge, and close to tram and public transportation. The room was nice, but there was a construction work beside the hotel which affected the quality of sleep. The terrace for breakfast is wonderful because it looks to the sea. Also, the hotel provides a very good breakfast. The receptions area is small and not reflected the quality of services which are provided to customers. This hotel is unrated for stars, but it deserve to be 3 stars rated hotel.

Just arrived, meeting our friends, seems a long way from airport, but greeted so warmly and then you go up to roof top bar and the view is amazing, feels like you ate watching over the whole of Istanbul. I loved it here, walking distance to attractions we wanted to visit & staff so wonderful xx
