Score from 65 reviews Exceptional
Very nice hotel Quit, clean, walking distance from the blue mosque, fish market and the historic city. 7 minutes walking distance from the tram & subway. Staff are friendly Breakfast at the terrace with birds is an experience, the food is excellent. Perfect for couples
Just a short walk to be within the centre of the Sultan Ahmet area, the hotel has a superb rooftop restaurant (the best hot mezze I have had) with views both over the Bosporus and across to the Blue Mosque. Will definitely stay again when next stopping over in Istanbul
cold inside room
location is perfect, recommended restaurants by the hotel were amazing, friendly staff and of course beautiful view!
breakfast was very good, but it was every morning the same
They have connected rooms.
the rooms were cold and the AC controller wasn't working and their bed was the worst bed I ever slept on. Also, hotel location is little far from tram station with climbed ground specially if you have kids or unhealthy wife it will be difficult for them.
very nice hotel and location
This hotel is in an excellent location. A 10 minute walk from the main sites. The staff were incredibly helpful - nothing was too much trouble. They even moved us to a different room, without us asking, to avoid us being disturbed by the building works in the morning. The room was comfortable and well decorated, it had everything we needed. Free wifi is a bonus and if anything went wrong - i.e when our air conditioning didn't work they fixed it straight away. Highly recommend this hotel.
We love the breakfast buffet and all the food in general. The staff is very competent and helpful. They organise outings, call to change appointment. . Find out about the best way to go to places. .. And the view from the terrace is amazing : marmara sea and Asia on one side and ayasofia and the blue mosque on the other. .. never get enough of it. ..plus you can walk to all of it. ..
They a under construction refurbishing the first floor, so if you were in between 9:00 am and 6:00pm depending on your room location, there was construction noises..
The dining room, including the breakfast buffet, was very nice and offers a scenic view of the entrance to the Bosporus, complete with a foghorn from the nearby lighthouse (which was not loud enough to prevent us from sleeping). Located in the oldest part of the Old City and very convenient to the major attractions, easily walkable.
Hotel is currently in renovation on the first floor. We arrived and were sent to our second floor room, only to hear the noise of a private party on the floor above us (at 10:00 p.m.) This should never have happened. To its credit, when we complained, the staff moved us to an adjoining building with a suite, which was fine.
Easy walking distance to main sites. Friendly and helpful staff. Wifi worked well. Breakfast is expansive.
Breakfast hours are a bit short for a tourist hotel. Restaurants in immediate area are OK, but not as good as around rest of Istanbul.
Great location,nice staff, great view of blue mosque from room, great view from breakfast terrace. Tea & coffee making facilities an added bonus. A fantastic stay.
Sea view, wifi, cleanliness, friendliness, breakfast
For young kids and elderly, walk uphill to blue mosque area is a pain. Fine for older kids and adults.
Beautiful authentic hotel. I'll be staying there again on my next trip.
The location was good, Beautiful view from the top of terrace, Pleasant atmosphere. Reception was nice, helpful and cooperative. Other staffs were also always there to assist whenever needed. Friendly and good command of English. WIFI was very good. Room was clean and artistic design with nice style. Short walk to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace; Also there are loads of restaurants at day and night. Tram station was very near to access other far location like Galata Tower and Taksim square. Street was quiet and safe. Breakfast and dinner was good with really pleasant view to Blue Mosque and Marmara Sea. VALUE FOR MONEY; I will be surely back soon :-)
Simply nothing :-)
Loved the location of the hotel which is away from the exciting hustle bustle of Istanbul. It is easy to get around from the hotel as we booked a private bus from Effendi Travel with a very tristworthy and nice driver named Nade. Thanks to his help and hospitality. Breakfast was amazing with fantastic views of the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia on one side and the other the Sea of Marmara. Rooms are a nice size. Bed is very comfortable and cleanliness overall is excellent. Thanks Armada and Mr. Erol for our great stay at thd hotel.
Room service menu could be improved on
Location - very close to Hagi Sophia, Topkapi etc Nice views from the Terrace restraunt Very friendly staff, prompt response to a problem we encountered Would definately recommend to others new to Istanbul, especially if limited time to see the main attractions, all of which are walkable from the hotel.
Some areas looked a little tired
For every thing! The location, the room, the view, the friendly personal, the breakfast, the dinner, and the terrace
Very nice hotel,very clean and wonderful breakfast with goods of excellent quality.Outstanding terrace view...I would defenately suggest this hotel...
Frequent shut-off of electricity
It was my second stay here. Very helpful staff, comfortable and quıet room, great locatıon, excellent breakfast with a view to the sea and hıstorical center. I will be happy to return to this hotel again.
Views from restaurant. Staff very helpful. Free wifi. comfortable rooms.
Caged birds. Immediate adjacent streets were run down and not developed yet. Limited film channels on TV. Breakfast not international. Restaurant menu limited. No free drinking water everyday.
Loved the views from the terrace where we had coffee and breakfast each morning and a glass of wine in the evening!! Loved the location of the hotel and proximity to all the important sights like Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace & more :))
Great hotel with great staff
Birds flying around restaurant at breakfast
Excellent location all key historical sites within walking distance. U can take an early morning walk along sea side plus double it up with a Bhosphoros cruise in the afternoon. Friendly staff...they even allowed me to check in early and gave me a room of my choice. Great breakfast too...the irony was the security at the hotel was more informative than the guy sitting at the hospitality desk for me
