Great location and outstanding service in Istanbul
This is an older facility, and one must climb steps to get to the rooms, but the location and the service couldn't have been better. All the major attractions in Istanbul were within walking distance. A great value for the money, and we highly recommend a visit to Turkey itself.

Amazing hotel, but small rooms
The hotel is amazing comfortable and cleane, the prize was incredible. It was close to all historical area it is only five minutes to blue mosque. Disadvantages: the bathroom was very very bad coz it is hard to seat on the bath chair and the room is very small. The breakfast is the same for four days.

Great find
Wonderful hotel with friendly, helpful staff. Room was on the small side but perfectly adequate for one and had all the amenities one could wish for. I even had a balcony my second stay. The breakfast was good and could be taken in the garden area at the back. There was also a rooftop area with views of the sea. Good location with Blue Mosque nearby but it was away from all the rug shops so you weren't constantly pestered.
