          • The location is excellent and just a few steps to the Blue Mosque. Most of the staff are very helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable.

            Worst hotel by far, very little bathroom.

          • Great location historical area and in a quiet street a short walk south of the Blue Mosque. The helpfull staff and the view from the roof top of the hotel, free tea and coffee available at any time in the lobby, the rooms are brand new and decorated well.

            Internet connection very bad and no fresh soap. The low strenght of wireless, the breakfast selection was limited.

          • Other main tourist attractions, calm street and anyways, price was cheap and I advice this hotel to young couples. Staff were really helpful, air conditioning worked well in bedroom and breakfast room.

            The location couldn't be better, the bathrooms are a bit small for a big person.

          • The location was excellent and there r two branches of this hotel and I liked the branch that was more close to Blue Mosque. The service was nice and the owner was wonderful. The room was very comfortable, breakfast was delicious.

            The pillows on the bed were not very good quality, we booked a suite and had confirmed several times.

          • Location was very good and the owner of the hotel was also very kind. The price for first days of December was quite reasonable, staff were great and the room was clean and fresh. Breakfast was healthy and substantial, the rooftop terrace was a lovely spot to sit in and enjoy a pre dinner drink.

            Personnel used to smoke at reception desk, pictures on the Internet are misleading.

          • The location is excellent and just few minutes walk away from Blue Mosque. The hotel neighbourhood is calm, friendly staff offer you Turkish tea When you are at the lobby and the English of the reception responsible was also very good, is quite important. The rooms are comfortable, the terrace is a nice space for relaxing.

            Dangerous area and street noise as well. A great place to come home to at the end of a busy day and price is quite high. Poor breakfast poor facilities poor toilets mosquitoes damage tv.
