Light outside my bedroom window that couldnt be turned off. Also no breakfast despite requesting it on my booking form.
I only arrived after midnight and had to leave at 6:30 in the morning, but this hotel was easy to find, close to Čemberlitaš Tram stop. Room was below ground at level -2 but was ok...a light outside the window made it had to darken the room for sleep. Because i was leaving early i had no breakfast, even though i had requested early breakfast in my booking. It was ok....the guy at reception was ver y kind and friendly.

Slightly unhappy with bed. They were certainly okay, but amid everything else being so nice these were a bit stiff for my likes.
The place was quaint and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and the breakfast was a full offering buffet, not some silly continental bread and cheese. Bathrooms and show were quite nice. This is coveniently right next to a tram stop and only a few blocks from the sites, 5 min walk away.

First time we want to walk around (Sultanahmet area) but staff doesn't allow us to leave our luggage at hotel after check out but finally they allow after our friend who can speak turkish talk to them.

The street and area is not very nice like other butique hotels in Sultanahmet. We did not want to go out for dinner for example. I cannot say that the receptionist guy was very kind. The hotel did not make us feel comfort. Our room was deluxe room and it should have had "city view". However, the room was looking to back side of the hotel and nothing was there except other hotels' construction area. The room has no carpet. The water in the bath was coming very weakly.
Wifi was working fine.

Its near to all places and good facility.

The breakfast was OK.
The location and how cheap or was.

The hotel room was a little bit dark.
The hotel is very near to the grand bazaar, and I was able to enjoy waliking around Istanbul historical sights. There are supermarkets near the hotel, too. It's very convenient.

Sometimes there was a bad smell coming from the ventilation of air conditioner. The economy rooms don't have any view, on the window all you can see is a big wall.
We liked the most the location, right in center of town, at about 3 min of walking from Grand Baxar and 8 min walking from Blue Mosque. The hotel was nice as well, very clean and comfortable rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was also good.

The location of the hotel is really good. Staff are helpful.

I think we where lucky to get upper floor (i think it was 6th) because half of the building is kinda underground. Could not open the window because of smoke rushing into the room. Tiny scary elevator for two. Bottled water was not complementary...
Didnt have breakfast because we left very early. Stuff booked a taxi for us to the airport. Suit is very comfy, clean and romantic. Close to Cemberlitas tram station and Grand Bazaar.

Nothing fancy but all quite good for a decent price and excellent location near the grand bazaar

- The walls are not properly isolated. We could clearly hear the next rooms TV! - Staff is not too friendly. The receptionist guy tried too hard to push us into booking Bursa trip with a certain travel agency despite the fact that we told him that the reviews online about it is so bad! - Hot water is clearly an issue. We had to leave the tap running for about 5 minutes before the water gets warm!
- Close to all the historic sights in Istanbul (Blue mosque, Ayasofia, Grand bazaar,...etc.) - Good value for the money.

It was cold outside and there was no heater in the room (only aircon). It was okay for one night but a heating system in winter would be nice.
Staff is very kind and helpful. They gave us tips and helped us to get on time to the airport. The hotel is beautiful, looks recently renovated. Absolutely recommend this hotel!!

Good service, nice breakfast, friendly staff. Thanks to Sait for early check-in and coffee :)

We booked the double deluxe room, and although the room was quite big, the bath was very small and uncomfortable, and it was located next to the kitchen. After 2 days, they moved us- although we didn't ask for it. The other room was OK but smaller. Breakfast was regular.
Location excellent- in the city center, very near of the blue mosque and the railway station Rooms are very clean. Staff are kind.

nice cozy hotel. good location. one tram stop to Bazar and 1 stop to SultanAhmed, all in walking distance. breakfast was simple but ok.

The street corner, which is a few meters away, seem to be a garbage collecting area.
Walking distance to Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Cemberlitas Hamam & tram station. The rooms are clean and toilet fixtures looks new.
