Score from 1119 reviews Wonderful
Staff was very helpful and location could not be beat. one of very few hotels in old district with a swimming pool swam every day. Loved hotel.would definitely stay there again. Breakfast was wonderful. Met people from all over the globe.
This hotel is in a great location and within short walking distance from the main sights. The staff are very friendly and make you feel at home. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel as it exceeded expectations.
They do not provide any free bottled water, considering one can't drink from the tap Pillows were very hard Rarely any sliced fruit at breakfast, which has greater savory options No real fruit juice was offered during our stay Shower included handheld which is convenient
attentativeness of staff Location on a pedestrian street Breakfast buffet with an egg/omelet station Strong wifi One-way shuttle service Numerous good restaurants nearby Rooms on top floor in back are quieter
Too much noise from the surrounding rooms-bad sound isolation of the walls
The hotel staff were extremely friendly, courteous and helpful. They booked car to pick me up from airport "no problem". The hotel was very clean comfortable and good location. Bed was comfy. Breakfast was tasty, plentiful and excellent. I should have stayed here when l was leaving Istanbul as well. Definite value for money.
friendly staff, great location with easy access to blue mosque and aya sofia. Really enjoyed the stay! Room was a little small but comfortable!
The location was so good and the desk staff were helpful in telling us about the best places to visit and eat. The facilities at the hotel were basic but good. It was very quiet.
Location if close to all things touristy in sultanahmet
The room noise insulation is terrible, we could ear the conversation, the Tv or even the shower from the room next to our. The air condition conduct was common to some rooms, and the people staying on the next room spent all the night smoking and we could smell it.
The location is super, really close to the main sites. The hotel is not exposed to the street noise. The staff is super friendly.
location and staff
Small rooms. Noise from street and tram car. No easy way to get the luggage from the street to the hotel.
Breakfast buffet and friendly staff.
Bedroom quite small and we felt hotel needed some updating as quite old fashioned decor rather tired looking. Staff friendly but very difficult to get a drink at the bar.
Hotel in great location with good restaurants very near. Superb choice for breakfast although tea and coffee rather stewed!
Helpful and friendly staff, location,
Close to main sights.
The room is little less spacious..but bathroom was bigger in comparison..overall very good..!!
This hotel is at the heart of istanbul city. The staffs were very good and cooperative. Breakfast was good and overall Good value for money.
Very helpful staff with excellent local knowledge e.g. how to avoid queues to buy tickets at major sites.
There was no hot water in the area of swimming pool to take a quick shower after swim .... but this was only minus of the whole stay, otherwise I had fantastic time.
Nice & helpful staff, clean room, great location, I really appreciated the fact that hotel offered a transfer from the airport to the hotel (excellent option)
Very nice staff and they were helpful to us all the time.They keept our 6 pcs lagauges in the store for free simce we had a late flight.
Location :within a few blocks of the major attractions. Great restaurants and shopping on the doorstep. Staff very helpful. Early arrival was no problem. They asked us to sit and gave us orange juice and Turkish delight. The reception staff came to us to complete check in.
Had no dislikes,
From our arrival to departure, the staff were professional, English spoken and assisted at all times, they really made our trip for enjoyable, the hotel was closely situated to all the attraction areas, the breakfast was excellent, staff at the breakfast were accommodating at all times, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Istanbul

Location, Staff, Breakfast
Avoid room 109: the entrance sliding doors are just below, you can hear every opening and closing. Also, used to be smoking room, smell of smoke was very noticeable. Cleanliness of bathroom could be better.
Biggest assets: staff, location Staff: helpful, friendly, available Location: in the heart of tourist district, very-very convenient, public transport is also close (tram)
Very inconvenient for airport transfers. No reliable information regarding availability of shuttle or taxi services to airport. The Sirkeci station close by from where taxis are to be taken, is a huge racket. No car/taxi access to the hotel so makes it hard for travellers with big luggage.
Very helpful and knowledgeable staff Great food. Clean facilities Lots of restaurants nearby
Bit loud at night in the street (not hotel's fault) and even though no smoking policy seemed very smoky. Believe the cleaning crew may have smoked as they cleaned.
Hearty delicious breakfast/friendly and helpful staff.
