The location was in short walking distance of all the main attractions. The staff were lovely particularly the maid who made me feel much better after I had been ill in the room! The reception staff organised a guide who was excellent. We all had a fantastic time even though I was not well. The hotel even upgraded our room! Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit and lots of choice. I would recommend this hotel.
The restaurant serves every day and has a well-reviewed master chef, who gives courses in Turkish cookery. The breakfast has to be the most extensive we've ever seen, catering to European, Arabic and Turkish tastes.
Sadly for us, the master chef was off the Sunday we visited and the replacement was a disaster. The dish ordered bore no relation to the advertised menu and the accompaniments were motorway coach tour standard - uneatable. However the staff were as upset as we were and didn't charge us, apologising profusely and clearly embarrassed. We'd try again but make sure the real deal was on duty!
Friendly staff, quite location and a good breakfast.
The helpfulness of the staff
THE PERFECT LOCATION , THE PROFESSIONALISM AND KINDNESS OF ALL THE STAFF , THE VARIED AND ABUNDANT BREAKFAST !! PIER ANGELO & VALENTINA , VIMERCATE , ITALY
Location of the hotel was really good for the historic attractions as many within easy walking distance. Food in the district expensive but wonderful flavours.
We didn't much like the noisy neighbours who talked very loudly outside our bedroom window late at night for four of the five nights we were there. Stray cats seem to be encouraged and they prowl around.
Friendly stuff, very good location.
wifi is not very stable. all prices in the hotel are in Euro. Breakfast could be better
Excelent, helpful staff.
Small room, uncomfortable and small doublebed, poor breakfast.
Location, architectural style and rooms' design, fixtures, comfort, well balanced returned value for the cost, food diversity and quality (breakfast)
The little mess on the restaurant's terrace but that's exactly one of the Istanbul's charm and fancy aspect.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great.
Little bit cramped with king size bed in queen size area
Location very close to sultan ahmed
Bad room service they entered the room while i was inside without knocking Bad bathroom The receptionist over charged me for a trip i wanted to go and sent me on a slightly diffrent one Bad bathroom Wifi not stable Breakfast is the same everyday soo boring They put me in the old building which was not as good as the new one The street of the hotel is very narrow do not be fooled by the pictures so taxi can not reach if a car is parked at the hotel Hotel did not guide me on how to use public transportation so i took taxi and paid alot
Location was great for main attractions in the old town and near to the tram to get to other places easily. People at the front desk were very helpful and attentive. Breakfast was excellent with a wide range of foods. The room was very clean and everything seemed new.
You could see into the bathroom from the beds. Ok if you're a couple but I was with a friend in single beds and don't want to see each other shower or go to the toilet.
Good location, very near to the blue mosque and aya sofia, 10 min walking distance from 2 tram stations, on a quiet street. The room was clean, nice decor. Wifi works well.
When we arrived they explained there were was no double room, though we had booked one, and put us in a terrible tiny room. We had to complain to change room, which was upseting. Apparently they did have a double room, but still much smaller than the pictures in Booking. For breakfast they charge extra for the orange juice, which we found outraging, in a city where a cup of fresh orange juice is just 1 turkish lira. The pillows were very hot and soft.
we loved the ambiance of the hotel especially the beautifully furnished lounge. The food in the restaurant and the breakfasts were the best we found on our travels around several parts of Turkey. The staff were welcoming and very helpful, especially when we were booking excursions and travel beyond Istanbul.
There was nothing we didn't like, at all.
Fantastic breakfast buffet Friendly and really informative staff Great location Great air con great shower Really clean Gorgeous entrance area to sit! beautiful furniture.
Staff are helpful. The turkish bath in the hotel was amazing!!!
The Staff, the breakfast, the room, the spa, and most important the location.
Wifi did not work in room
A great hotel for a great price! I was very pleased with the location and the price. The breakfast was very nice with a lot of variety and fresh fruits and vegetables. The walk up the hill every morning was steep, but coming down every evening was very rewarding and the surrounding hotels had a great rooftops for dinner. Don't waste your time with the main restaurants on the busy street when you could have a beautiful view if the terrace. We took the metro to the hotel in the morning and then took a taxi to the airport. It was 40TL at 3:30am.
Breakfast was good. Staff was very helpful and nice.
We did not get the room that we saw on Booking website. It is slightly too expensive for what it was.
Rooms in the new building are recently renovated thus better. Excellent breakfast, friendly and helpful staff.
Wifi was not working in the new building.
Loved the old feel of the home. Very much loved the location with the lovely mosque just next door. Liked the personnel very much, very helpful and cheerful. Have been several times before.
Well there is always the problem of the call to worship -- really!!
2 min walk to the Blue Mosque and main attractions in Istanbul.
The WIFI kept dropping, so you needed to reconnect all the time.
The staff was very nice and helpful. Had a great stay !!
Nothing really - they could just maybe put irons in the rooms
I liked the exellent location, kind and friendly staff. The breakfast was nice.
The proposed us a small roof room without air-conditioner. So we had to open the small trangolar window to get some fresh air, but it was do noisy outside ( noice of ventilation system on the roof and dynamic with pray song in the night). Also it was a lot of dust in the corners. It seems like they forgot to hoover the room after previous guests.
