Great centrally located clean and chic furnished hotel. Within walking distance to everything. Really a great location. Very friendly helpful staff. Breakfast buffet small but nice. Everything was clean. Room and bathroom was very small, due to the beautiful modern and very tasteful decor but you could be overlooked. Small bazaar for shopping in the immediate vicinity. There are all major attractions are just around the corner. Would not hesitate to return to this hotel. Is often one of the best hotels in this price category in Istanbul. Bewertung lesen

Staff are exceptionaly friendly and helpful. It is rather difficult to find but do not be put off by that as the welcome is great. The Blue Mosque etc is ony a ten minute walk There is no lift and the stairs are a bit steep so no good for serioiusly disabled visitors. Restuarants in the area serve standard food so no real gastronomic experiences. However we were recomended one restaurant near one of the bridges which was good (and they sent a car to colect and return us) Bewertung lesen

The best part of this hotel is it's location. All major attractions are within walking distance. The Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia are just round the corner and has great atmosphere at night. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Bewertung lesen

Every things were goog except the vue in the Room B1. We expected to have a nice vue and we had a wall in front of the Window. The garden could be better if it was decorated with Flowers. The Terace upstairs is beautiful, a nice place to stay. Bewertung lesen

Conveniently situated friendly hotel

We upgraded to a superior room as the standard room is very small and is on the street, whereas the superior room has a sea view and is a lot roomier. Generally clean. Breakfast could be a lot better though, not much choice with very little fresh fruit. Were very surprised to be expected to pay extra for fresh fruit juice! Bewertung lesen
