8/10 Very good

I thought the hotel itself was perfect; rooms were lovely, clean, comfortable. The one point that was odd/not so great was the taxi situation. It's very clear that Istanbul has a problem with reliable drivers, so when we asked the desk to call a taxi for us and they said it was impossible, we really were shocked. This is a service that is usually standard in most hotels, especially those with higher ratings. I would highly recommend that the hotel sort out something to compensate for this; either have a list of recommended drivers ready to recommend/call for guests with fixed prices, or a list of reliable taxis, etc.

The most amazing stay in Istanbul!
This was my second stay at this lovely boutique hotel and there is nothing I can fault! Everything was absolutely perfect. The service, the welcoming, the comfortable bed, the amazing terrace! I would like to specifically thank Engin for his lovely and friendly welcome and an upgrade of our deluxe room to a terrace room with a wonderful view of galata tower! He was constantly addressing us by our names and making sure everything was up to standard! Definitely staying here for our next visit!

A nice stay at the hotel by an anonymous reviewer
The hotel was very clean and very nice. The hotel used to be a bank. The lobby was interesting....it still had lock boxes around the bar and the door that lead to the vault. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel staff helped arrange transportation and tour guides. They also offered hammam. The breakfast was excellent, a wonderful buffet of various cheese, meats, fruit, bread and many other things. They cooked my egg to my satisfaction. The staff gave us a map to help us walk around, marking historical places of interest to see.
