+ Location + Rooms were clean and tidy + Good value for money + Good breakfast
- Be sure to get the right adress. Google maps & booking.com location were incorrect
It is very close to many sites worth seeing, the room had good size. There are many places to shop and eat around near the hotel. The view from the breakfast room was very nice (breakfast not so much).
The bed was uncomfortable due to the fact that there were 2 twin beds together and you could feel the separation. Also all the pillows were very hard so we had neckache the 3 days. It is very close to the mosques so you will hear their chants at 5:30 am every day (and they sing with microfones). There is NO way you would hear this and dont wake up.
Great Location, nice roof top view
Location, location & location! Family rooms were comfy Views from the breakfast terrace on the top Decent breakfast
Terrible attitude of the manager. Made undesirable comments on ethnicity No reception or lobby. Entire area where reception should be located has a restaurant No atmosphere at all
Recently renovated rooms Comfy beds View from room and breakfast terrace Wi-Fi always worked
Bathroom was not restocked daily with soap and shampoo
The place is located rigth next to the blue mosque. The hotel was great and the staff super extreamly friendly and helpful. I would definatelly go back there one day when i go back to Istanbul.
I liked everithing, nothing wrong at all
I stayed here for three nights and really liked it. I love their kindness and nice especially Doktor(he is so good and kine :D) fantastic location near by Blue mosque and sofia cathedral. If I visit Istanbul, I will definitely stay here :)
You can't get any closer accommodation to Sultan Ahmet Camii.
A little bit of street noise, but expected being in the narrow streets of the old city.
The staff, room and location
The facilities and size of the lobby
Rooms were clean and well appointed,good shower, but all rather small. Breakfast room was small but the view was good. Location near to Hippodrome good.
Noise - difficult to sleep cos of noise from street, cars and restaurant downstairs. We paid over £80 a night and this was massively overpriced.
The location wise is very convinient! Walking distantance to most tourist attraction in old city. Nearby to a tram station also!
• Location was excellent for those visiting Istanbul for the historic places. • Staff were very helpful especially Kazem. • Although the price is a little bit high, but compared to other hotels in the area it's fair.
•Breakfast is good, but needs more verity.
is very expensive compared with the other hotels the owner very rude just he's looking for money It is only looking for money and not to please the customer. Also, there is a bad smell in the rooms and did not clean the rooms just they come to put poor soap and did not change the sheets for five days until I asked for change. the breakfast poor and old however musty found in the juice and breakfast includes eggs, and old cheese only . I do not advise this hotel it is a waste of money
Really good place to stay especially when it comes to have a good location, 5 minute walk to the tram station (Wich takes you straight to the other side of Galata´s bridge). Located just in the corner of the Hippodrome, 5 minutes away from Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. Good restaurant offers near by. Clean rooms, totally renovated on 2014 and nice and helpful staff. I totally recommend this place to stay.
The location was perfect and central. My favorite thing to do each morning was just grab a tea in the top floor with a perfect view to the Blue Mosque.Hasan and other staff were very kind and helpful in all of my needs. And for a solo traveller, the place had a bar/resto downstairs with just enough buzz and social life to make you feel surrounded. Overall, a lovely experience. Will definitely come back !
The elevator is a bit small but it wasn't too much of a deal for me as I was on the 2nd floor. It did have some technical difficulties on the second day so moving the luggage down was hindering. The staff however was very attentive.
location was perfect . Very Close to all historic places in old city.Staff was very coperative.
A bit expensive .
Loved how close we were to everything. Super breakfast which was included in price and great wifi which was free. Staff were helpful too.
Location and very accommodating staff very especially a young employee Mr Onur at the front desk who was very helpful indeed in all that we required giving us a feel like home.A few negative points were quickly fixed & He always gave excellent advise of how to go where and save money.
The fact that the breakfast attendant did not wear any gloves while handling food and picked up everything by bare hands to arrange on buffet plates !.We informed the management & they promise to take care of it The good thing is they were very prompt in taking action . Which is very important .
I enjoyed stay in the hotel .the stuff were very good but the receptionist was fantastic in how for his kindness helping me every day to find great deals around and for anything. Great man and with fantastic professionalism.

Very good location next to the Hippodrome square in front of the Blue Mosque. Main attractions within walkable distance. Room small but clean. Good breakfast on the terrasse with a stunning view of the Blue Mosque and very nice staff. Good quality/price ratio.
The location of this hotel was perfect as it is situated right next to the main square. Main attractions are only a few mins walk away. The hotel itself is good and rooms are cleaned regularly, wifi is good too, staff didnt speak much english but enough to get by and were happy to help. Overall i would definatley recommend this place
Breakfast could have done with some fresh juices but cant really think of anything else and anyway the view for from the breakfast terrace was amazing
Great room Large breakfast selection Nice helpful staff Loved the restaurant and serving staff Perfect location to tourist sights
