Proximity to the central tourist attractions of Istanbul, Presence of restaurants, shops, convenience store just outside the hotel
The glasses in the bathroom sink, though wrapped in plastic supposedly to appear sanitized, smelled bad.
The location and helpfulness and graciousness of the staff.
Could hear activity of neighbors. Not a problem if they are respectful and quiet.
Great staff.. Vert helpful and friendly.. Good english so not hard to communicate. Amazing Location.. Walking distance to all major sights, restaurants and bars.
When doing check out at 2am their POS wasn't working and we had to walk to an ATM to withdraw money.. Wasn't the best way to finish the stay but staff were very apoligetic and one of them accompanied us. Breakfast could have been better.
It was a wonderful hotel stay and convenient in terms of location and the location where it was close to the most beautiful places in Istanbul, the staff are the best, helpful and smiling feel like you're with family
Overall, the breakfast was good but need to diversity and innovation.
-- Overall nice hotel with clean comfortable rooms (hot water!), in a good location, near lots of restaurants and shopping and major tourist sites, all very walkable. -- friendly helpful staff. -- good breakfast with great views of the Bosphorus from the breakfast and rooftop terraces. -- I like all the neighborhood cats.
-- first room had some minor problems (plumbing, bed), but they let us change to a better room with views of the Bosphorus. -- a bit of very loud late night Turkish music emanating from the neighborhood just below the hotel -- don't know if that's a regular occurance or not. -- in a tourist hotel ghetto, mostly very charming, but very touristy. -- can't leave the neighborhood without running the gauntlet of incessant aggressive restaurant menu touts -- can be amusing or charming but more often annoying and tiresome. -- neighborhood vehicle traffic.
I came late-about 12pm and wanted to sleep very much. They gave room 404. It's infront of lift and next to reception. It was the worst. I can hear everything from corridor like people were in room and I hear next door toilet. I complain and they gave room in Azade Premier Hotel for night. Thanks, I slept good. Next night hotel gave us room with jacuzzi and sea view. It was good but needs repair.
Excellent location and very friendly and helpful staff
Breakfast was very basic, should have more variety. The check-in in the adjacent room at 1.00 am created a lot of noise and we had to wake up in the middle of the night and could not go back to sleep for few hours. The air-conditioning is controlled by the reception and makes life difficult when you want to change the temperature. Every time you are required to call the reception to make it cold or warm!
Very good and friendly staff specially Anas and Adam. Anas helped us alot, thank you Anas :) .The location is great
Location is excellent The staff are so nice and helpful
The room is extremely small The housekeeper does not put any shampoo or soap unless you ask for The breakfast is very bad
Excellent location, very helpful and friendly staff. Room comfortable, good breakfast. Excellent views from roof terrace.
Front desk guys were always helpful no matter what time it was. They always had smiles on there faces!
Clean, functioning safe and wifi in room, helpful bellhops, excellent location. The breakfast buffet, set out in a restaurant with balcony overlooking the Sea of Marma. Excellent house cleaning.
Shower drain and faucet were not functioning properly. The bottle of water we were provided on out arrival was the only one we received.
Location is wonderful and Staff are very helpful and the room is clean with average size
The lighting in the room is very bad and you should pay in cash even they did not mention it in booking no credit cards It's 10 minutes walking to tram station and not all taxis agree to reach the hotel and you should use Gps as the taxi do nor know the place
The location is great, the staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good quality, variety and presentation.
Internet is avaiable in the rooms but is weak and extremely slow.
Friendly, helpful staff. Beautiful view of the Bosphorus at breakfast. Breakfast was good.
Outdated, cramped rooms. Cable didn't work. Neighbors were really load at 2am. It was Eid Holliday and the little kids were up til all hrs.
Good location, Tasty breakfast, Clean room, Nice Staff. They prepared the room and allowed us to stay there before the normal check in time
Although the room is nice but it does not look as luxury as in the pictures
Great breakfast, spacy terrace, breakfast with fresh fruit and plenty of cheese types. Helpful staff. ... and just a hop from the major sites. Whoever decorated the hotel had taste, I must say. Great stay!
Nothing. Those travellers who are really picky might notice wallpaper coming down in some corners because of the humidity, but ... hey...
Excellent people service and comfort. Breakfast tasty but same every day. Location perfect. Loved this hotel
The location was fantastic. Walking distance to everything. Loved the décor in the Hotel. Air conditioning as great as the weather was very hot. Travelled during July 2014. Front of house staff were very helpful.
Although the décor was lovely, some of its getting abit tied and needs an upgrade. But it didn't distract from our stay.
Awesome little hotel really close to the Old Town. Only 5 minutes walk to Blue Mosque and restaurants were in abundance right nearby. The staff were amazingly helpful even programming our GPS for us on our rental car and helping us to book tours. The terrace for breakfast was lovely with great views of the Bosphorus.
Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was different to other hotels and choices amazing. Beds were comfortable, clean towels, hot water. Wonderful views from the roof top. Location was excellent. Very good value for money.
Wifi was not good in certain parts of the hotel. We stayed on the 2nd floor. Noise was minimal but my daughter and her family were on the Lobby floor and walls were not sound proof.
Fantastic view of the sea of Marmara. Good location
Perfect location - 2 blocks away from Ayasofia Good breakfast with a view over the sea Clean rooms Helpful staff
The location and authentic feel of the hotel. Rooms quite small but very comfortable.
