    Great location walking distance from Blue Mosque. Nice restaurants & shops in the locality. Nice boutique hotel and penthouse has good view of the sea of Marmara.

    Excellent location, few minutes walk to all major sights. Cheap. Complimentary toiletries including toothbrush was greatly appreciated. Breakfast was good (but make sure to arrive early or the staff has started to deal with other things than serving breakfast once you arrive). Bed is made daily (although they did forget give more toilet paper)

    Don't expect this to have a hotel standard by western means. It has a good price for the location and if that is what you are looking for then it's okay but if you want any comfort whatsoever look elsewhere. This place is just one step above a hostel, which was fine for us being a couple without children travelling on a budget but don't expect anything more. Rooms are very worn with holes in the wallpaper and where presumably lamps once ha d been attached. Rooms are small even by European standard so if you are a bit bigger or elderly you would have a hard time getting to the bed. Lobby and hallway smelled like cat urine which was no surprise since several cats were residing in the hotel, including a mother with kittens who were given a place just outside our door. We happen to like cats but it was certainly unexpected. Upon arrival we were informed, with no apology or explanation that we would have to change room in the middle of our stay. In the end, we didn't have to but it certainly wasn't a warm welcome.

    Our bedroom had plaster peeling of the ceiling, the shower tray had mould all around, and stunk of sewers. The whole place needs decorating. Needless to say we didn't use the shower!

    The staff were pleasant and obliging. We had dinner twice in the hotel and the food was of a very high standard. Location 5*

    The room needs fully updating although clean. Cats were a nuisance when eating due to other people feeding from the table.

    I almost like everything, and the people there were so nice, definitely I'll go back there and I'll recommend it to other friends.

    Although the cats were cutes but the smell of the cats was so obviously once you enter the hotel. But you get to use to it, coz they are like babies :)

    It is a great hotel with very friendly staff and cozy room! I like the cats there around the house. Also, the location is very good in old city, close to Blue Mosque. I did enjoy the time there!

    Staff in this hotel is amazing: kind, supportive, responsive! You could really feel like you are welcome and almost like you are at home! Location is great - in center of the old city & just 5 minutes walk from the biggest attractions in Istanbul. Near this hotel you can find few great restaurants.

    The staff are all very warm and ready to help all the time. Pedro (work name) was exceptionally friendly. The location is great. Very memorable experience. Beatrice, Kampala, Uganda

    Cats and cats were ever around. At times quite intrusive.

    Location & good breakfast choices

    Booked triple room but ended up with double room as the previous guest extended their stay one more day. He promised that we can moved in the day after but another excused were made as another guest already booked the same room.

    The comfortable bed and bedding. Location of the hotel. Food in the restaurant. Friendly staff.

    Dirty bathroom (the toilet bowl was disgusting and there was mould in the shower cubicle), dirty carpet and the general feel of neglect.
