Excellent location and comfortable
The hotel is located in a privileged area. The room is more like that of a hostel but it is extremely clean and also comfortable.

Hotel near Hagia Sophia
The location is perfect as it is close to Hagia Sophia, Topkapi palace, Blue Mosque and comfy 18 Lira bus from and to airport. The hotel is great if you know what to expect. They don't have elevator. They have nice breakfast area on top floor where you can view Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and the sea. During breakfast, they prepare for each guest a plate with standard breakfast items and you can add from the buffet: cheese, cold sausage, yoghurt, hot drinks, water, orange juice and cereal. They clean the rooms everyday and replace the towels. There is not kettle or safety box in the room but at the lobby, there are free safe deposits you can use and you can make tea for free. There is a mail box to send letter/postcard at the lobby.
