Adequate accommodation
Nice family hotel in Sultanahmet. Very nice people who were very friendly and helpful. Room adequate- there was nowhere to relax really. Quite expensive for a solo traveller.

Avoid this so called hotel
Photos are so misleading! It’s in a ruined alley and it’s an old building turned into a something that they call a hotel. Felt so bad when I got there. It was too late to cancel. No elevators and steps are so narrow; so good luck taking your luggage up 4 floors. It should have never got the certification of operating as a hotel to begin with. They advertise as free parking to come up on search tools, but there is no parking. It’s street parking! Very very overpriced. With the same price you can get an actual hotel not this sham. In one word; AVOID

Very good place !
It was a very amazing place to stay. Out from the traffic and noise during night, so we can fully rest in peace. Very calm place and close to the sea and also there is a lot of cheap shop to buy snacks.The room is so nice and neat, plus I love the colour inside. Recommended to everyone !

Perfect location in Istanbul for great price
Excellent location, in the heart of histotic Istanbul, in Sultanahmet, only five minute stroll to Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cisterne, Blue Mosque, ten minutes to Topkapi Palace, 15 minutes to Grand Bazat. Conveiniently connected by tram T1 for almost all other major sites of Istanbul. And the view for breakfast from the rooftop terrace is magnificent.

Small price great views over Bosporus
I am not sure whether it is excellent training or the staff truly is so helpful and friendly - for me the service was excellent, from the airport transfer they organised to check in, very decent breakfast with an amazing view and the comfortable beds. Yes, the local street is not a well looked after boulevard, but the local main street is a few steps aways so no traffic or noisy close to the hotel. Would recommend to anyone who does not look exclusively for brand named hotels but hospitality that is sometime lacking in much more expensive hotel.
Robert, gb4 night trip with friends
Very good 8,0
Great location, friendliness and cleanliness
The staff speak fluent English and are very welcoming with their warm Turkish hospitality and hot Turkish tea! The reception area and rooms are very modern and clean. If you have mobility issues, you may have trouble getting to breakfast (which is delicious) as it’s on the top floor. We did have an issue with ants 2 nights of our stay, but the hotel staff handled it. Awesome location, minutes from Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia.
