Recent guest reviews

I booked this hotel for a weekend in sultanahmet but it was not as expected and different from the photos. When I arrive (5 pm) my room was not ready and had to wait. My room fand bathroom very dirty, shower without hand shower head! . No air conditioning during the day and the room was very hot! Breakfast very poor, I could only take a coffe. The guys at the reception were trying to be kind and helpful with me but honestly the only thing I d had wanted was to be refounded and go to another hotel. I think this is not a 3 stars hotel (maybe not even 1). Experience not to be repeated.

I have stayed at this Hotel for only one night. It's location was very nice as it is really near of lots of touristic places, where you can go by walk without spending too much time. I had no problem with the air conditioner neither with cleanliness issues. Wi-fi was very decent and I had no connection problems. Moreover, all the staff was very friendly and helpful. They gave me good advice about the city.

We booked here in advance as it looked like a nice hotel, but looks can be very deceiving. Firstly our room was very dirty, we had wet wipes and cleaned all the surfaces ourselves which made the wet wipes brown with dirt, the bedding was also not up to standard and we felt uncomfortable sleeping here. The bathroom was also dirty and t did not look like the pictures. Secondly, the breakfast was very poor and the selections was limited and not very fresh. Thirdly, we arrived there in the end of June heatwave, so it was very hot and we had the aircon on while in the room, then at times it will just stop cooling, so I went to the front desk to say it goes off all the time to which I was told that they switched it off??? WHY??? Some of the staff were friendly, but most were not. Fourthly, there was n mini bar and we had to buy our own snacks and drinks outside the hotel. Fifthly, the quaint little bar downstairs was NEVER open. Spent 3 nights here, but wish we hadn't, it was a big influence on spoiling our time in Istanbul. It has a central location, but I am sure there are lots of better hotels also with a better location.

I found this hotel just when I was passing the street. Looks big and nice. So, I came there and staff was very warm and welcome. Price was really good. I need to stay just for 2nights. I asked to look for a room first. And they show me the room without any problems. Also there's open terrace upstairs...very nice to sit there! I had a room on the 4th floor. Room with 2single beds. For me it was enough.rooms are good. Clean. Bed clothes also is clean. Safety box. Telephone. Room service. At the bathroom everything is available. Plenty of towels. All was good in the room. Just some lights was not working. Reception is always friendly and warm welcome. It's not a new hotel. But still looking clean and tidy. All staff with good clean uniform. Breakfast is included. Breakfast was good. Boiled eggs, bread, butter, different types of cheese, tea, coffee, sweets, fruits, cereals...all was looking fresh. Hotel have a really good location. Just in 2 min you get supermarkets, restaurants. In 5 you are at the main square or main road of tramway. Very good location!!! In the middle of everything! Very good service about shuttle to the airport! Other hotels are asking around 50€ for transfer to the airport!!! Here you get it 5-15€ depends of the airport. I didn't use housekeeping services. I asked to don't clean my room because I stay just 2 nights. So, I can't say anything about room cleaning. Very important that hotel has an elevator! I would like to thank all of the staff for really good place and good job! Thank you all for a good couple of days!

I booked for 4 days but wanted to change the booking for 2 days and to replace the days for the last day but unable to do it because gala booking e-mail did not entertain my mails though I booked the booking cancellation cost rooms. When asked at the hotel there was various type of answer given hence I had to pay for the days stay to the hotel. I would like a refund from gala hotels booking.

Perfect place to be with super service and working members. Always helpfull clean rooms and lovely managment. This is the fourth time and i will be back always. I can reconended to everyone who goes to istanbul. Location is the best and the best hotel arround

It was first travelling to the Istanbul..full of positive hotel staff and friendly people..we loved them...great place and location...nearby most places to visit ..great breakfast and clean and comfortable rooms..sevda..kurban.atilla.sezgin..anil...we loved all you from Azerbaijani...

A Very friendly and helpful staff made our stay here very enjoyable. They booked all our trips for us and gave good advice about places to visit. The location is very good for restaurants (some out of the way ones), and very good for the sights in the old part of the city; a short, mostly downhill walk to the oldest sights. Then a cheap tram ride back up a main street (more good places to eat!), followed by another (downhill) walk back to the Hotel.

Really great location . Easy walking distance to all the historic attractions in Sultanahmet. Very friendly and helpful staff. (English spoken). Comfortable and clean rooms at a very reasonable price. Free wifi. Our party of 4 across 3 rooms.

This is a great place to stay, with friendly staff especially Kurban and Selman. Perfect location, located with in walking distance of tram, grand bazaar, blue mosque and lots of great food places. Would defiantly recommend the hotel to anyone.
