    The taxi cant get inside so you need to walk alittle but everything is comfortable.. the breakfast is simple but good and fresh.. the bathrooms are a little old and smell not good

    I like everything about this hotel, the location is perfect but the taxi cant get inside because the tram pass there..but everything is close.. soltan ahmad, aya sofia, gulhani park, amenuno, serkice and all is near ..walking distance!! And the most thing we like is the staff, the lady and all the guys are great..sure we come back again..

    I believe tea, coffee and plan water should be available 24/7 at hotel and it must be free.

    Hotel is ideally located, as you can easily manage to move to many location either by foot or through tram, find cruise etc. You can enjoy food, drinks of your choice, massage parlors and off course very good support from Kafkas Hotel management.

    The night shift staff who checked us in seemed impatient and unwelcoming. The reception looks new but the rest is very old. I can hear the phone ringing two rooms away. I can hear someone is taking a shower in the other rooms. Wi-fi is frustrating. Shower takes time to drain.

    The staff who was there in the morning until we left was nice and really helpful. He quickly arranged for airport transfer when I called to request. The drivers were horrible though. He also let us leave our bags there after we checked out. Location is great and very close to main tourist sites, souvenir shops and Eminonu.
