    All the staff I encountered were very friendly and sincerely helpful in all respects. The views from the rooftop terrace where breakfast is served are spectacular; lunch and dinner are also served there and the meals I had there were quite good. The bathrooms are up to date and gleaming. The major sights, rug shopping, and good restaurants are on the doorstep of the hotel. It was a wonderful experience all around and I recommend it highly.

    This being Istanbul and the old city, the rooms are small and somewhat dark, but the availability of the rooftop with spectacular views makes up for it.

    Very good location just 2 min to sultanahmed tram station ,, and a few steps to blue moseq and topkapi place

  • 6.6
    Good

    Across the street from the tram and just steps away from major historic sites including the Sultanahmet and Hagia Sophia.

    It is in a great location but, tucked up in a back alley and without a sign from the street, it was hard for my taxi driver to find at night. The address is somewhat misleading, as it only accessible by taxis from the Grand Bazaar side, not the Sultanahmet side. Also, I had a remarkably bad massage from in-house "masseur" (the place looking somewhat akin to a 1970s bordello) and left half-way through with a migraine -- not an experience I would recommend.

    Very good

    Well located in the heart of Sultanahmet, the breakfast is on the roof top with a view on the blue mosque. Service was good and staff helpfull.

    The room was a bit small but (ok for the price)

    I liked the hotel room.

    The bathroom was very small and sauna and turkish bath wasn`t free what surprised me. I thought it`s in the price of the hotel.

    The room was spacious and light with windows across two walls, in the heart of sultanahmet in a beautiful sidestreet, close to all attractions and the service is wonderful.

    Can't fault anything!

    Superb

    we stayed a week and felt the location was perfect for 2 to 4 days. Room was comfortable and we loved the terrace setting for breakfast and relaxing.

    No negative on the hotel but, the area is a bit too touristy for a long stay. The modern city areas are a long way away.

    Good location and good price. New and nice room, friendly staff.

    poor breakfast

    Very good

    Location on Sultanahmet near tram station. Large rooms.

    Unfortunately some problems with conditioner almost in every room. The price of 100 euro per night looks a bit big. Otherwise it's OK

    Guest rating

    location was excellent , also the man at breakfast was so kind and so caring.

    the all time noise because of electricity engine , the poor reception with sad or may be angry faces(not all of them ) the spa was very poor (not like the add on the Hotel description)

    Exceptional

    The hotel is small, quiet, tastefully appointed and superbly located with a terrace view of Sultan Ahmet mosque, Hagia Sophia, and the Hippodrome all just across the road and with the ships moving along the Bosphorus in the background. The museums are a very short walk away. The staff made me feel welcome and themselves appeared happy working together. The buffet for breakfast was beautifully displayed and the meals excellent. It was an idyllic context in which to return to historic Istanbul.

    I couldn't have been happier and have been repeatedly recommending the hotel to friends who would also appreciate it.

    Superb

    Helpful staff Room was great though a little tight with fold down lounde for 2 x8 yr olds. Excellent location Brekky was OK but mainly clod cut selection If a couple travelling only would be perfect, great location and roof top has incredible views to have a glass of wine and enjoy. Hotel has been refitted, rooms have great ambience though no views from room themselves - this doesnt matter

    Only 2 news channels in English.

    We liked the location, cost and the helpful staff. Did not have time to try the spa facilities so cannot comment on those. The roof terrace was great. We would definitely stay there again.
