Exceptional 10.0
Fantastic place and great hospitality
Fantastic location. Owner & manager Mohammed made everything to make me comfortable, including providing a pass for the tram. Also a great breakfast. And the views to the Blue Mosque were incredible. Would love to stay here again !

Fair 4.0
great location but very bad service
Good:location right in front of the Blue Mosque,we have the one with spectacular views of the Blue Mosque,Hagia Sophia and Marmara Sea.Walkable distance to almost historic location.Breakfast was good and staff were friendly.Bad:Tried to contact the hotel before our trip and to book a private shuttle service from the airport to the hotel.Unfortunately,after 2-3 messages nobody answer so we've taken a taxi.At 1 o’clock we’ve got our room which was not so clean,no heat,frozen water at the sink/shower,the TV doesn’t work(the owner told us that you don’t need TV you book the room for the view).All the winds are in the room if you do not have heat,many spaces between windows,walls, and doors.When we asked about the TV why it's not working,they remembered to start the heating,after that it was ok in the room.Second day we’ve gone exploring the city and return on 6 pm at the hotel and went to our room which,surprise:was clean expecting new guests.Therefore,no luggage,no any other thinks that we’ve had in the room.Therefore,we have gone downstairs and trying to find where were all our belongings:nobody knows,the staff call the owner.We have discover our luggage at the front desk but without thinks that we have out of baggage:perfumes,books, clothes,etc.I had to repeat several times that we’ve missing thinks,so we are going to call the police.They told us to wait to talk to housekeeping, who arrived later very upset and give us our missing thinks who putted in her cupboard.
