Great location if you are tourist(s) - in the very center of Old Town. Clean. Good value for money.
If you are traveling by car, reaching the hotel is a nightmare and subject to a "old town car fee" (15 TRL). May be a little noisy as tram passes in front of the hotel.
The location could not have been better--right next to the Hagia Sophia. A block or two from the palace and all its museums and very near the blue mosque. Also it was close to several good eating places. The free shuttle from the airport was very good and solved the problem of accessing the hotel. [It is hard to get to this location.] Hotel staff mainly attentive and helpful. [Beds changed every day, ac worked well, two keys were provided when we asked for them for example.]
It is a very old building and the steps are uneven everywhere. Higher, shorter, often rough. Outside the access to the hotel is extremely bad. It is on a stiff slope with rough cobblestones and loose rock and dirt. You must either go uphill or down hill to the street. Nothing is level anywhere in the place. Also the bathroom is very small. But because of the location you can put up with a lot!!!!
We like location best. This is a very good hotel for those who come to Istanbul to see the city tourist attractions (near Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, near Bazar, etc.).The rooms are clean - a suggestrion: do not stay in triple room. Ask for a double and a single room instead! Waiters and the ladies who clean the rooms are more helpfull than the staf at the reception (with one or two exceptions).Recomand.
Location, nice rooms.
The room are really badly isolated. I had the feeling the tram was going through my room all night long. Also I could hear the TV from the room next door.
My best remembrances were of the staff - very friendly and accommodating at all levels.
No dislikes. The only improvement might be internet telephone.
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. The hotel has a small number of rooms; few of them were interesting for us in terms of space; If you are booking the suite, you will enjoy if you could get it. Over all, we enjoyed the stay and we strongly recommend this hotel for families with children, it’s very homey and safe hotel with excellent location.
The location of the hotel is just surerb, near all main sightseeing. I enjoyed view of the Blue Mosque from the window.
The best attribute of the hotel is undoutedly its location, although a certain degree of traffic noise comes along with this. It may be considered relatively good value for money due to its location, but the hotel iand its rooms are quite dated and the service level, although friendly, is somewhat limited by the small number of staff. The breakfast service could certainly be improved upon.
The location for this hotel is very nice. Close to St.Sophia and Sultan Ahment Mosque.
Breakfast for this hotel is quite poor
perfect position, unbeatable value for money
The staff is very polite and helpful. Clean and comfortable rooms and a good restaurant inside the hotel. The location of the hotel is magnificent, right next to Hayia Sofia and only 2 minutes walk to Sultanahmet square. Very good prices for such a hotel. I highly recommend it and I would like to stay there again in my next visit.
I stay with my family 2 nights the first night my son fall down from the bed and get serious injury in his head I tried to call the reception at 2:30am but no answer then I take him to elevator to go down but the elevator has been switched off to save electricity we go by stairs and my son bleeding the blood every where when I reach the reception the employee was sleeping I ask him to call ambulance he said I don’t know the number?? What kind off hotel this ,,, I don’t recommend this hotel strongly
Central location Friendly personnel Clean and tidy rooms
Loud music from the café across the street till midnight. Maybe, a better windows sound insulation would do?
Very good location. Near Sant Sophia. Good and plesant staff. Hotel is small and comfort for staying. Very good to be with family with plans to see old city.
Take into account: No guests are permited to visit you at this hotel in your room. We can meet in the hotel hall only. Breakfast is poor.
Very close to famous attractions as hagia sofia,(next door), blue mosque, dining, transportation stops,tour starting points
1)Lighting inside the room was bad as we could not read anything in the night and the visibility inside the room was too low during the night due to bad lighting. 2)FOR BREAKFAST AT THE RESTAURANT, NOBODY TO ATTEND THE GUESTS
