    Clean room, friendly and helpful staff

    A fantastic budget hotel, friendly and very helpful staff and a very clean environment. We arrived early and had lost luggage en route: the team accommodated us with an early check in and measures to find our lost suitcase and even offered use of personal toiletries. The staff assisted with touristic travel plans. We did not take breakfast at the hotel but the buffet they offered was extensive and would please most people. We were amazed and the daily change of bedding and towels and the eventual tracking of one (thought gone forever) suitcase. Yes, the bathrooms are small ...but they have made the very best of the space available to them. An excellent experience which we have shared already with friends.

    Small Hotel who gives you the most for your money!

    Didn‘t expect too much for the price, but this little Hotel is a true treasure. We loved everything about it. Stuff is super friendly and helpful. Location is great. Very clean and rooms are cozy. Felt more like family than a Hotel. Would stay there again and recommend to everybody asking for a recommendation where to stay in Istanbul!

    Charming B&B

    A nice little B&B just minutes walking time from the major tourist spots in Istanbul. Our host was most gracious and was anxious to do anything possible to make our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was very good. This place was a real find, and worked out perfectly for us.
