    Personal of hotel was very friendly and helpfuly. Hotel was clean and fresh.

  • Single
    6.2

    The Hotel is located within walking distance of the Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Haji Sophia & the tram stations that connect to all the tourist sites, this makes it convenient. The WiFi internet in the rooms is free & is a big help.

    The Hotel is in a rather run down, noisy business area, with dirty roads. The en suite room is of a fair size & as the Hotel is new the rooms are clean, with a Flat screen tv, mini bar & a/C. The rooms could do with a kettle & tea coffee service, as well as a chair to sit at the already provided work desk

    I liked the comfy bed and linens, the bathroom was very clean and new! the whole hotel is only 28 days old, the staff was wonderful, the area close to great fish resturants.

    Friendly staff and nice rooms (but very samll).

    Location: too dirty and too noisy, however very close to the main sights (Sultanahmet, Hagia Sophia).

    Cleanliness of my room

    Sorry to say but I will defenetly not recommend this hotel to anybody even to my worst enemies. Relation price / quality is extrimely poor. If you are looking for a lovely and clean hotel in the center of Istanbul to stay with your couple or family this hotel is not for you.I booked this hotel for 5 nights to spend a New Year with my girlfriend, to be honest we couldnt wait the first morning to check out, what we actualy done and found a new one much more better and cheaper on the top.

    Great location in the old town only a few minutes walk from the main tourist sites and fish restaurants at Kumkapi. Hotel staff particulary helpful and friendly.

    Very close to the old town and nice place to walk about.

    Not too many hot food in the breakfast menu.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    I liked the helpful and friendly staff, the clean rooms, the good location near the city center and good value for money.

    I did not like the strange salami served for breakfast every day and the lack of food variety. Anyway, the breakfast was good and the rest of the food was fresh.

  • Couple
    8.8

    The hotel was nice and clean, and the staff was most friendly and helpful. Location was slighty further away from the shopping places and attractions than majority of other hotels, but still definently close enough. Also loved the short distance to seaside!

    Hm, only cons I can think of would be the neighbourhood, but then again its the real Turkey and no shiny tourist street.

  • Family with children
    8.2

    Staff were friendly and co-operative. Location of the hotel in terms of its nearness to important landmarks is very good.

    The size of the wash rooms.

  • Couple
    7.0

    hotel staff was very friendly and had many dining restaurants near

    to bad location wasnt so good. you have to climb a few steep streets in order to get to grand bazaar

  • Group of friends

    Nice terrace on the third floor, still under set up though.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    Its location. It is very close to the main touristic objectives from the Old City of "Islambul".

    No. Just the fact that across the street it's a mosque and at 4:30 in the morning the muezzin wake you up instantly.
