    Advice by hotel manger.clean room,location 100m to GrandBazzar,walking distance to tourist sites,good restrurants.FREE Wireless internet.

    Great hotel, very hospitable and nice. Clean room and toilet, exellent view from the roof restaurant

    rooms are not too big, though very cosy. breakfast should v

    The geographic sitiuation in the touristic area (Bazar, Sultan Ahmet...)

    I did a lot of hotels before, but I never been in a hotel so much noisy. Impossible to sleep, to do the nap...doors slamm, walls poorly insulated. Avoird the 4th floor, just under the roof restaurant.

  • Single
    7.4

    The Hotel is small and tidy. I enjoyed the stay specially the breakfast at the roof overlooking the bosphorus. I also like the location close to the street car station. Although most Taxi drivers don't know the place at all you must carry a map with you to reach the hotel. The only bad think t this hotel is that you can hear what is going on in the next door room.

  • Single
    5.0

    It was a relatively clean hotel within the premises itself and basic taken care of. Decent for budget customers.

    Although it was advertises and was approx 250 meters for Grand bazaar, it was a steep slope to walk uo to the grand bazaar. The full250 meters!! I thought the location in general was extremely weak and very unpleasant unless you are in the leather business and have a problem staying a few minutes away from your market. Absolutely will not rexommend any tourist this place compared to rest of istanbul. Desk services were basic and were struggling to give any advice on how to get atound istanbul. Would not ever stay here again. Does not justify or compliment the experience of Istanbul

  • Group of friends

    It's located in old city, very close to Sultanahmet, Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms are clean.

    Breakfast was not good enough, it could be better.

  • Couple
    7.4

    The hotel staff was just exceptional and always willing to help

    Bit noisy at times, because of the hotel's location.

  • Single
    7.8

    Hotel is small, but very clean and stuff is friendly. Close to main street and Grand Bazaar. Safe in the room, modern lift. Bathroom is acceptable and clean. Even if my room was very small, I felt well.

    Location is "dark" and cheerless. To reach the main street and Grand Bazaar you must walk up the hill. Poor breakfast, but it is the same in all hotels of this level in Istanbul.
