    The location is near to Blue Mosque, Aya Sofya, Tofkapi palace n lots of museum around. With small children, we need not to take tram to move around. Near to tram station . We enjoyed our 5 day stay in Istanbul. The breakfast served was good.

    Room cleanliness to be improved.

    location

    front desk staff.....although friendly they were not well informed to events, activities that were going on. Reluctant to help out...to take the extra step....I had difficulty finding the hotel initially and when i rang to inquire about directions, they seemed almost indifferent to my situation. When i finally got there, and was struggling with my luggage across the street, the guy behind the front desk just sat there looking at me....its not as if he was busy..it was 10.30 at night.

    We had to walk down the road to another hotel for breakfast, which appeared to be always out of things on the buffet, whatever time we went, though the staff members where making sure they where eating their's!. We asked our room to be changed on arrival as the bathroom was filthy; they did change us rooms, but the next was only a little better! Will not stay here again.

    The staff was very nice, and willing to accommodate our needs.

  • Group of friends

    I liked the location - only 4 minutes away from the Blue Mosque and Sofia. View from the breakfast hall was really good.

    The window in my room opened itself every 30min! That was really annoying because the cold came inside the room during night. And when I came back after city-visit the window, of course, was open all day long! The pictures lie and the rooms are not as big and bright as they seem.

  • Older travelers

    The facility is lovely, up to date, clean and in a perfect location for touring or simply enjoying the city atmosphere. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. At every turn, they were a pleasure to interact with and offered helpful guidance. As English speakers, we found it very easy to communicate and were impressed with the fluency of the staff in so many languages. An added delight to our stay were the kittens and mother cats in the area.

    Our visit was terrific.

    The breakfast is in a very beautiful place with great view and many options for good breakfast. We loved the view and the quietness of the area. Also it is place in a great street, near to center of Sultanahmet. We also liked very much the attitude of the personell and their polite way of treating us.

    The family room was large enough and well situated in Sultanamet

  • Single
    7.0

    The location was perfect very close to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, a Bazaar and other attractions. The street has many restaurants and stores and is lively but not noisy. Very good area, very safe. Wi-Fi worked well. Elevator (not a given in many hotels in Istanbul) The breakfast which is served on the terrace of a different hotel was my favorite part. Drinking coffee and eating sweets while looking out on the Bosphorus in the morning was priceless. The hotel is clean, the staff is attentive, the room was a good size but don't expect any luxury frills (not at this price). It was a very good value for the money paid.

    The staff speaks little English enough to get by but not necessarily sufficient to give out any major advice. The description "the hotel is located 1640 feet (500 meters) from the Grand Bazaar" is not just an exaggeration but a blatant lie. While its location is very convenient to many major sights it is by no means 500 meter from the Grand Bazaar in fact you walk through several streets, across a park, then board a railway and after two stops you have arrived at the Grand Bazaar. There is also another way to get there through Fatih (and then through Gate 1) but again much further than 500 meters (about 20 minutes walk). The walk is not a big deal and in nice weather very enjoyable but there is no need to mislead a visitor/tourist. The tv in the room was from the 1970s and was no bigger than an Ipad :(

    Location is ideal. Very close to tourist attractions and the breakfaast is great

    Don't expect 5star comfort.
