    The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had booked the family garden rooms but were disappointed that the rooms do not have windows. So we asked to change to 2 connecting rooms, which was smaller than what we wanted but at least they were bright and had a lovely view. Other than that, the hotel is lively and great location.

    Convenient location
    I’d rate this more of a 3.5 but customer service improved as our stay continued. We just had an annoying initial check in and start with the front desk. When we reserved a room at the sura Hagia Sophia on, the reservation said we would have a room overlooking the garden. When we arrived our room was overlooking a green lot with zero view, had no full length mirror which I found odd and a too dim light In the bathroom. The photos on the page for the economy rooms are a closer match to what we received. Had I known this was what we were going to receive we would’ve just booked the cheaper economy room. Even In the hotel booklet it mentions the superior room having specific views, “our superior rooms welcome you with City, garden or pool views. The only thing for you to do is to state which view you would like to have in the morning.” Quite A bit misleading in my opinion. We dealt with both the daytime and nighttime front desk and honestly both could’ve improved their customer interaction regarding our room and check in. As our stay continued our interaction with everyone else was great. The people at the spa were amazing and the people at the breakfast buffet were fantastic as well. Don’t miss the breakfast buffet! Overall it had a great location close to the mosques and general sightseeing. If you are in Istanbul for a short stay and have only a few days It May be worth it. Just check your rooms and make sure it’s exactly what you paid For.

    Rooms are super small. Lower floor rooms are cold. Breakfast is alright. Everything super expensive in that area. Specially the restaurants in front of the hotel are a rip off.

    Hotel was located in a central location near some of the main landmarks. The rooms could have been bigger. The air conditioning didn’t work so rooms got quite warm which meant it was difficult to sleep. We were only provided with one key per room even though 2 were sharing so this was a bit awkward. We were told they didn’t give 2 keys. The hotel amenities were good. Breakfast was nice.

    Nice hotel in the heart of sultanahmet
    Located in the heart of sultanahmet near the blue mosque. The hotel is close to heaps of cafes and restaurants and close to the tram station. The room is clean. Staff are super friendly and helpful. The breakfast has a big variety to choose from. The hotel even has complimentary afternoon tea for all the guests while serenaded by a lady playing the harp. Very nice. Would definitely stay again.
