        Friendly staff, keen to please. Excellent English. Nice breakfast-great view from the roof terrace.

      • Group of friends

        Rooftop terrace was good as had double aspect over Bosphorous on one side, and Blue Mosque on the other. Was only really used at breakfast though, as no lights on the terrace at night.

        Didn't like hotel at all. Staff disinterested. Room cramped. Bathroom cramped and shower tray dirty. Breakfast ok.

      • Group of friends

        Breakfast on the roofterrace with a view of Blue Mosque and Ayasophia is the best way to start your day!

        Good, but very noisy neighbours day and night.

        Extremely hospitable. We were stuck during the explosion of the Iceland volcano and received help far beyond standard service levels.

        The friendly, very knowledgeable and accommodating staff. They gave me great service without being obtrusive. I enjoyed the decor in the cozy "front room" with the sofa; perfect to use the wireless while sipping apple tea. The rooftop dining area had both indoor and outdoor seating, but all with good views. The food was simple yet nice, and each morning I awoke to chirping birds. The hotel appeared to have some really nice upgrades (nice bathroom and pleasant decor!), yet still managed to keep its cultural charm. My room had a nice radiator keeping it cozy at night, despite the cold rainy temperatures. excellent location, just around the corner from the action, but out of the main through-fare of traffic.

        Be warned, when they say the rooms are tiny, 'tis true. It was nice, and I found it cozy, but a larger person (or two people to fill the two single beds that were only about 3 feet apart) might find it too cramped.

        The staff are very nice. They give the useful advise for what i will visit. They are very patience to explain what ever i ask. The hotel's location is great, very close to the blue mosque, breakfast is excellent, especially we can choice different kind of eggs, i enjoy it very much.

      • Family with children
        7.4

        Excellent location (3 minutes to the Blue Mosque, 5 minutes to Hagia Sophia and tram stop), friendly and responsive hotel staff, reasonably good smorgasbord-type of breakfast (plus menemen, scrambled eggs, etc.) on rooftop terrace.

        Plumbing – after each shower we had to take care of a small puddle in the bathroom. The twin room that we had was very small, but that's not much of a problem if you spend most time outside.

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The location is great if you like being in the heart of the tourist area. Close to several important historical sites. The small staff was friendly and accommodating. Our room was quite attractive, large, and clean. We didn't have a view, but had two big windows looking out onto a low rooftop area between buildings. This location offered good privacy and was quieter than rooms overlooking the street. We picked the hotel because of the roof top terrace, with a fabulous view over the Golden Horn. Breakfast was served there each morning, but the terrace was accessible at any time. We brought snacks and refreshments each evening to watch the birds and the sunset.

        Loud Turkish music one night until late made it hard to sleep, but was actually added some ambience to our stay.

      • Family with children

        My son and I stayed in this hotel for a 3-day city break and were most impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. They immediately made us feel welcome and were always on hand to help us, giving us useful tips about good restaurants/places to shop and organizing value-for-money tours/trips as well as airport transfers. The hotel is in a quiet location in the hotel district, it's three minutes' walk from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, and there is a wide range of restaurants within a couple of minutes' walk, as well as the usual tourist shops. Our twin-bed room was at the back of the hotel overlooking a large fig-tree, so very quiet and private. The room itself was small, but this didn't matter as we were out most of the time - the beds were comfortable, and there was sufficient storage space, TV, AC, mini bar and safe. Everything (shower, etc) worked perfectly, and towels were changed daily. Wonderful rooftop breakfast terrace area, with views over the sea. Good selection of food for breakfast, including cooked options, and prompt and attentive service. The hotel is run efficiently but has a very relaxed atmosphere - we thought it was great and would definitely recommend it.

        The shower area in our room would benefit from renovation as there was some mould - however, we were told that this only affects a couple of the rooms, and it didn't detract from a lovely stay.

      • Group of friends

        The location was fantastic in a quiet cozy area just behind the blue mosk. So it's very close to all the tourisque attractions. The roofterrace for breakfast has a great view at the bosphorus, the sea of marmara and the blue mosk. The personal is very friendly and helpfull.

      • Couple
        7.8

        The hotel is in a good location, close to the Blue Mosque and all the sites. The staff is very friendly and helpfull.

        The room was a bit on the small side and quite noisy. There must have been an airco or something else nearby, or the bathroom ventilator of the next door room. And in the morning there was noise from the breakfast place upstairs. Also the ventilation of the bathroom could have been better.

      • Single
        7.8

        Friendly staff, excellent location, nice terrace view.

        Small room, tasteless dark Interior, sporadic internet connection.

      • Couple
        8.2

        The staff were extremely helpful and courteous...kudos to Bedii and his team! The room we had was very comfortable. Location was near to the tram station, restaurants, Blue Mosque & Hagia Sophia. Breakfast was good. Will definitely stay there again.

        Our shower was clogged a bit, so a bit of maintenance will need to be done by the hotel management.
