    Great position, staff extremely helpful.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    They do a very good breakfast and the restaurant staff are very helpful. It's location was close to some of the bigger attractions like the Blue Mosque and St Sophia etc. which was handy for a couple of big days out sightseeing.

    I found the reception staff not keen to help and seemed a little jaded. Almost as though they were thoroughly sick of their job and being nice to customers. If you persisted, they were helpful. The location was just a little out of the way - we found that walking back to the hotel after a day sight seeing, just a little too far. We preferred to just stay out and find somewhere to eat rather than go back and get changed and then go out.

  • Couple
    3.8

    Location was ok, but I would prefer to leave this part blank as I would like to stress the bad points which deserve to be read first.....

    By read the reviews on the net and by my own experience when first checking in and if offered the basement room, say no, as this is always offered first to clients. The room has some very loud plumbing , cracked windows etc. The staff at this hotel fall well below the industry standard, when they are not too busy surfing the net their short abrupt and sometimes rude conversations will leave you feeling cold to say the least. Please also note that you are required to sign a document which small print reads " that the Hotel will not be responsible for any items stolen from the room" breakfast is also a joke.

  • Couple
    6.2

    The location is very good.

    Most of the staff are very sluggish, seemed like were very unhappy to work with clients. Only one woman- a receptionist - tried her best to make us satisfied. We changed four times the room, tried to find one with air conditioning working! Terrible!

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Excellent location because it was quite yet very central.The staff was very helpfull and kind ( specially Onur). Our room (303) was spacious, turkish style with a very nice view.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    What especially appealed to me is the location, the fact that although everything is very near e.g. sightseeing spots, restaurants, shops, you have a quiet evenings and no noise of traffic during the night. Just a few minutes away you are surrounded with an ordinary family life in the old town of Istanbul as well. Staff is rather discrete but approachable, professional while premises are kept clean and tidy.

  • Couple
    5.0

    The best thing about the hotel is that it's in the middle of all the major attractions that Old Istanbul has to offer.

    Never stay there during the summer. The hotel reception was freaking boiling like a sauna. A/C barely worked or I think turks don't believe in A/C during the summer. Myself and my wife could not sleep at night becuase of the A/C not working properly. I called them like five times, but they didn't care much about our issue.

  • Single

    the location is very convenience to visit old town, i think a visitor maybe save money and time.

  • Couple
    3.8

    Location was excellent!

    The price isn,t justified.What picture they have on the site doesn,t exist in reality! When I received the first room I was shocked! I think it was 6 square metters! Then I asked for the second! It wasn,t also a 100 euro per night room...This is it,,,no second time...

    The hammam is ok, air conditioning efficient.

    Very basic breakfast buffet without any warm food or fresh fruits.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Great location with able and attentive staff. Nice decor and small enough for the staff to know you and your requirements even though we only stayed for 2 nights/1 day.

    Some rooms slightly small, shuttle to airport seemed expensive.

  • Single

    Quality and range of the breakfast was exceptional. All facilities worked and generally everything was very clean.

  • Older travelers

    Location and quiet neighbourhood

    There was no Internet connection in the room, even it was in hotel descriptions. Also bad TV connection. We were able to see only 3 channels. We missed some soccer games :( and mattress was very hard.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Very well situated to explore all major sightseeing attractions

    Availibility of front desk personnell. Unable to help with bussiness facilities, fax systems, internet not available most of the time, etc
