    Central location, walking distance from every historical monuments

  • Single
    7.8

    Great location. Good price at bargain rates. Don't pay retail.

    Civil but indifferent staff ... maybe it's unavoidable in Istanbul. Small, crowded rooms.

  • Family with children
    4.2

    The only good thing about it is the location...otherwise...extremely bad

    Everything...unprofessional staff...below average breakfast...very small toilets and not in good maintenance....in middle of old buildings with no good views...construction site just beside the hotel with noise till after midnight...this hotel more of 1 to 2 star hotel

  • Family with children
    6.6

    The room is clean and location is good.

    The hotel need updated their homepage. The room was not what we booked, they gave us a room for three person but we have four person, although they changed another room for us the second day, but still not as same as the picture of room we booked.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    They made our stay unforgettable. It was our first visit to Istanbul. It is a very crowded city with alot of people. We felt very safe at the hotel. They behaved us like a king:)....not a joke. They charmed both of us. If you compare price and quality it is a best choice.

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    Location very convenient for visiting the Sultanaxmet area. It is also near tram station. Rich breakfast.

    Pictures of the hotel are misleading. The economy double rooms are extremely narrow and small. Although a video provided by the hotel shows that breakfast is served in the upper floor which provides view to Bosphorus, it is actually served in the basement (elegant but with no view).

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Hotel is in the heart of major interest items in Istanbul

    The elevator does not go to the highest floor and the air conditioning does not work well at all

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    Its location which is near to all the touristic places, the friendlyservice, as well as is was clean !!!

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Friendly service and location

    On first night we arrived at mid-night and no rooms available-transferred to another hotel.Next night we did not get delux rooms as none available so got standard

  • Couple
    8.8

    Good location and fiendly staff.

    Economy double room actually is a small single room; Pics on the hotel's site and on Booked.net is not of an actual room interier.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Most of all I liked a big bed in my room, it was very cozy and homelike. The staff was very polite.

    windows overlook the building area and builders look at you, walls in my room were so thin that you can hear all what your neighbours are doing

  • Single
    9.6

    I had a great stay at this lovely, sweet, well designed historical hotel. The lobby was charming like a palace. Perfect location you don't have to use any transportation and very clean rooms and rich breakfast. I was alone but not felt alone because of the helpful and friendly staff.

  • Single
    6.2

    The location was very good. Fairly short walk down to the water and Galata Bridge to see water, fishermen and hustle and bustle going on there. Wifi in room worked well. Room size was fine. Bed ok. TV fine - with BBC news which was handy.

    I was fairly disappointed in the hotel which I chose principally on some of the positive reviews I read and also from description of hotel facilities. I stayed in one of the larger standard size rooms. Room furniture pretty unfunctional and dated and poor bedside lighting - hard to read. Bit noisy from construction next door. My main issue however was lack of hotel facilities which I feel did not match up to description. Advertised facilites that I read incl hotel bar and terrace. Hotel bar closed and no terrace so really nowhere good in hotel to relax a bit after day out walking and exploring. If looking for room only and fits with budget perhaps fine but if looking for something bit better suggest try (perhaps more expensive?) alternative

  • Couple
    4.6

    only location

    Everything was very bad: room, breakfast, comfort...

  • Couple
    6.2

    The staf was quite nice and room was interesting with its kitch look. The good thing about this hotel is that is close to all points of interest of Istambul.

    Not the cleanest place I have been. While we were at breakfast someone entered our room with shoes filed with dirt dispite the do not disturb sign, to do what?! I don't know, I was just glad that I had my wallet with me. The breakfast was absoulutly horrible.
