Very Good 8.0
Great Hotel with the Best View
This hotel has an unbelievable view. It’s right at the center of sultanahmet so you can see Hagia Sophia and the blue mosque from the terrace. The metro is right below the hotel so it’s very easy to travel from one point to another. Lots of great restaurants and shops around. The hotel is literally at the heart of Istanbul. Great customer service. Everyone was super accommodating and welcoming. The breakfast was good. You get a variety of options including a personalized omelet. The only complaint is they need some updates. For example, the towels are very old. Also if you are traveling from the states, make sure you bring or buy outlet adapters.

Great service and location1
My parents and i stayed at this hotel for four nights right before Christmas 2018. We had initially missed our flight to Istanbul and lost a night stay at the hotel and we were saddened. The next day , when we actually checked in at the hotel, to our surprise, they were able to extend our stay for one more night for free ! My parents and I were ecstatic to hear that! Now that was great customer service by both the person checking us in and the manager. We, then, were offered apple tea by the kindest man that we've met at any hotel, Sezgin. Sezgin is the whole reason that I am writing this review. He was very helpful throughout the day and provided excellent customer service., From helping us with our bags, to catering to us at breakfast, to offering us his own personal tram card, so that we would not have to spend an extra 6 liras to purchase a new card, Sezgin is truly a gem and made our stay very memorable. Another great aspect of this hotel is its location. It is located literally minutes from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Topkapi Palace, Grand Bazaar, and the Spice Bazaar. We only had to use the tram once to get to Taksim Square. The location alone is worth the value, The breakfast was great and there were different items everyday. We also had the option of custom omelettes or eggs. We loved it !

Little gem
The hotel was definitely cozy. The thing that set this hotel apart from everyone else is the service. All of the hotel staff was exceptionally friendly and kind. The breakfast was amazing every morning and the view from the terrace on the 5th floor was spectacular. Everything was walking distance and it was easier to plan our trip that way without worrying about public transportation. Overall, this hotel is a hidden gem and definitely should be considered when planning your stay in Turkey!

Great Location for Sultanahmet!
This was my second stay at this lovely hotel. I enjoy the fact it IS OFF the main drag but only a few minutes walk to everything. The breakfast is also a delight in the rooftop area - both winter and summer the view is spectacular and makes lingering over another coffee worthwhile. The staff are very friendly and only to happy to assist with whatever it is you need. I know I'll be back again - its become my goto place in Istanbul.
