8/10 Very good

Could do better with breakfast else all good.

2/10 Poor

A band of thieves and liers. The worst experience I had in a hotel. When we arrived they told us they have an electrical issue and they don’t have a room for us. We later found out they lied and they overbooked the hotel. They told is we are going to send you to a better hotel for one night. The “better” hotel was a super small room with NO windows and no space to open our luggages. And since we had a tour in the morning , they told us we have to check out at 4am and bring our luggages to the hotel again. A complete mess. They promised us two free turkish baths to compensate for this, which was another lie and they just told us that to keep us quiet. Also another day, we asked for a transportation to a wedding venue we were going and the transportation never showed up. They told us go get a taxi and …. Anyway, overall, the rooms are bad. The AC does not work. The breakfast is not fresh at all. And the reception staff are not helpful and honest at all. The location is also bad because on that streets there are two train tracks that runs in front of the hotel and they are soooooo loud. And no car can get to the front of the hotel, if you need a taxi. Stay away. There are so much better hotels in the same neighborhood but on a different street and much nicer ones in Karaköy which is not far away at all.

I loved everything about the property except the fact that our AC was clearly not working . We struggled cus of the heat and the fact it was somehow making the room very humid. other than that service was great and the rooms were clean !

4/10 Fair

Overall all the good point was the location very good and central. The cleanliness was quite low standards, found hair in the bed linen and in the bathroom floor tiles and wall, all night long a running water noise in the room, outside the window cleanliness...further more as a disappointment to be added we left the property earlier as a normal checkout not having the chance to get our breakfast, which was paid in full and no one offered us any kind of arrangement whatsoever. Lack of customers service attention.

8/10 Very good

Please read all... First night was terrible as our room was in front and due to road work, whole night was uncomfortable. Next day, upon complaint they shifted us to their chain hotel Orka Spa just 3 minutes away. So apart from first night, all was good and complaint immediately taken up. So thumbs up. Breakfast was normal. Both hotels are in reach of every location, Grand bazar, Sultanahmet, Egyptian bazar, Ayasofia, Topkapi Museum, Blue mosque and more. So if we plan again so we will prefer same hotel. Dont try food just in front of the hotel. There are many choices on walking distance and you can have good stakes, chicken and bread filled with cheese/spinach/ minced meet. We loved Hafiz Mustafa sweets. Booked Orient cruise ship dinner. Never give them a big currency note otherwise you will get back fake euro or dollar. Always keep small notes and give money as per bill on the boat. Never buy things from Egyptian bazar as you can get better prices from other places.

Just got back to London after an awesome stay in Istanbul. What made our trip so special was the awesome FOH team at this hotel. The lady on reception was a fountain of knowledge on the local attractions and what to see and even how to get there!!! Lovely room, clean, tidy, picturesque hotel and location. These guys really look after you. Highly recommend!!!
