Nothing. Rude staff, shabby hotel.
the hotel recpetion wanted cash upfront and did not want to use credit card, he was very rude when i said this was not standard practice. Bathroom was really old with stained glass. Will never stay here again.
Hotel staff are very helpful and friendly at reception. The central location is perfect for sight seeing and the tram is on the door step which makes travel around the city very easy. This hotel is all about location.
The hotel is aged and could be doing with some money being spent on repair to bring up to a standard. Breakfast very basic and the same every day. Cleaners have no respect for do not disturb signs and continue making lots of noise. 10 oclock is when breakfast is finished and as far as house keeping is concerned everyone should be out of the hotel.
Great location. Nice homely feeling, human scale. Good wifi.
Breakfast a bit simple. Hotel saves on wrong items, no slippers in the room, only one bar of soap in room for two persons and no new one.
Great location and helpful staff
A bit noisy - right next to tramway
cleanliness is poor: 1-water cattle is dirty, 2-jacuzzi is dirty, 3-bathroom floor gets full of water during shower, since the drainage is located at bathroom corner, 4- lobby & restaurant furniture is very old and dirty needs upgrade
the best location I could imagine, magnificent view from balcony, nice suite room with jacuzzi
The hotel is in the city centre but the room ano not clean an not nice at the same of the high price... The staff are very inhospital and they are lier becouse the parking of the hotel do not exist. I would not raccomend this hotel to anyone.
Very good location
A lot of noice from outside (it's near tram line). Very bad bathroom equipment - always water on the floor.
It is near all historic monuments,tram,Bosfor
Excellent location, very helpful and friendly staff, fresh breakfast with limited verities, safe family atmosphere. Free internet high-speed service is excellent, but you can only enjoy in in your room, don’t expect the nice and conformable lobby.
I booked a suite but unfortunately I couldn’t get it before 2 nights, the reason was a mistake in the booking system allowed bauble booking on the rooms. In return, the hotel management offered to us a complementary dinner for that mistake (it was mentioned in my booking confirmation that there will be a free dinned after Nov. 15th and I was staying up to the 17th , what they did is they gave it a bit earlier) and it was a good dinner.
great location+++. Building condition and bed comfort fair. Good breakfast.Noisy area.
I liked first of all the location. The hotel staff were friendly and helpfull. The open terrace in front of the hotel was excelent.
The location is amazing right next to hagia sophia, the cistern, toptaki palace, and the blue mosque. Sultanahmet station is pretty close as well, so you can either walk aroud everywhere, or take the "subway", bus, taxi. restaurants, souvenirs is everywhere. the Staff is friendly and helpful. I wish we had stayed for more nights in that hotel
Excellent location, in the heart of Istanbul's historic Sultanahmet quarter, within easy walking distance of Saint Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi palace and other highlights of this ancient city.
We had to ask for a change of room as the fire exit was not secure on the first room and again as the 2nd room was on the front of the hotel and picking up a lot of noise from the street. The staff changed our room with no problems and no additional charge.
Small, quirky, hotel feels like home. Perfect central location. Friendly staff. Good wifi.
