Fair 4,0
We arrived early in the morning 05.30 i had contacted the hotel before hand and told them for a early check in but on arrival no one knew anything about it !!! So it was a case of wondering the streets until the room became available at 1pm !! On checking in the room seemed fine until closer inspection the carpet was very worn and unclean and the bathroom was tiny the door would only open half way because of sink area and you had to squeeze through the gap then close the door to use the sink !!! Useing the toilet was even worse you had to fully open the shower door if you wanted to sit on the toilet meaning your feet were half way in the shower area not a good feeling just after a shower :-(((( wifi was neither here or there just your luck if you got it or not :-((( no coffee or way of making coffee !! Noisy after 8am even i was on the second floor i could people 3 floors up in the breakfast area , also it a nightmare climbing over bedding and other cleaning items that early in the morning in the path of each stair case !! It seemed a good deal at £217 for 4 nights near the blue mosque in istanbul after being reduced from over £400 ! Was not worth £200 never mind over £400 only thing i can say location was good and thats it :-((((((

Lovely Stay in Sultanahmet
The Hotel was very nice and the room was a perfect size for two people. It was close to public transportation and AMAZINGLY close to sites like the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The price was very affordable and perfect for those traveling on a budget! Would definitely stay here again.

Family Friendly Hotel in idea location
This hotel is in a great location with the blue mosque only 200m away and lots of great places to eat close by. The hotel is a bit dated, however the cleanliness, comfort and service were exceptional. I was travelling with a 7 month old baby, and they were flexible and accommodating in all our needs to make her stay comfortable. The hotel restaurant served amazing breakfast in roof terrace from whet the view was amazing and blue mosque, hagia Sofia and the sea clearly visible. If I were to return to Istanbul I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.
