    Superb

    Friendly staff, good location, nice breakfast on the roof top, good value for money, spacious rooms, comfortable beds, good bathrooms

    Our room was on the ground floor and a little noisy, we could hear footsteps above us in the mornings

  • 6.6
    Good

    Excellent location within walking distance of all major sights, very well run Turkish family hotel.

    Do not expect a "boutique" hotel by means of international standards, so decide yourself if the price asked for is appropriate.

    Exceptional

    I really like the friendly & helpful staffs, also the design of the hotel, it's very cozy & good breakfast. Great locatıon..we just walk to most of the tourist places eventhough we are travelling with a 4 month old baby. We also loved the sea view from the terrace every morning during breakfast. We even extended our stay at the hotel.

    Exceptional

    Smaller hotel which provides nice rooms for resonable price. It has small cosy garden. Breakfast is fine. Staff is friendly and helpful.

    The hotel rooms are a bit small. The seagulls make a lot of noice early in the morning and disturb sleeping-

    Very good

    Helpful staff, budget accomodation with rooms on the smaller side but that didn't bother us. They are a bit tired and in need of a bit more attention from the cleaners. Breakfast fine, unless you are vegetarian (seems to be the case anywhere in Turkey in touristic resorts - avoid them and go where the locals go, to sample good food with vegetarian dishes). If organising transfers to airport and back, the hotel charges a bit more than you can pay elsewhere.

    Fabulous

    Staff were very helpful, polite and friendly. The hotel is in a fantastic location at the heart of Sultanhamet, ten mins from the Blue Mosque and the Aya Sophia and, so, is perfect for a tourist city visit. The booking and car pick up went like clockwork. Price online reflected price charged so there were no surpirses at check out, which was nice. When I booked online there was a slight problem due to my visa (I entered in the wrong expiry date the first time) but staff followed up and we solved the problem; their support was great.

    It was fine. The room was on the small side.

    Very good

    I like the staff who was very helpful and nice. I liked the breakfast place, wiith view on the sea. The location is perfect for visiting istanbul. I liked the possibility of having hot tea any time of the day ...

    The hotel might need a little renovation in the staircase.

    Exceptional

    The location is perfect. The Blue Mosque one one side and a view of the sea to the other from a roof terrace You can walk to the bazaar in 15 mins and the Aghia Sophia in 10. hotel staff were very friendly and Turkish breakfast very good. No extras for air-conditioning, safe box, tea. Room service 24 hrs despite a small, boutique atmosphere.

    The location is in very narrow streets with uneven or step obstructions to pavements. No problem for us but wheel chairs, prams would be in trouble.

    Superb

    Great locatıon only 5 mınutes from Blue Mosque. Also very quıet tucked ın behind an old brıck retainıng wall, I never even heard the early morning call to prayer. Very nice complementary breakfast, best I've ever had. Extended my original booking by 2 days.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    The staff of the hotel was very polite. The breakfast was more than enough with a big variety of food. The rooms were clean, not so spacious, but big enough. The location is good.

    We do not have a negative hint even.

    Fabulous

    The Hotel is very nice and the deck on the roof is great for breakfast and also in the evening when the sun is going down. Room was a good size too.

    I was put in room 103 which is right behind the front desk. If you're someone who is a light sleeper, and likes to sleep in, avoid this room. Just normal stuff going on in the street and in the hallway. You can't hear the front desk tho because the walls are quite thick. Sound comes through the door or window. (they are closed by the way). Because of thick wall, I couldn't get wireless signal from my bed (brand new macbook), had to write from the desk. I'm whining a bit, but was not feeling well from something I ate in Cairo a couple of days earlier and wanted to lay and type. Not a big deal.
