  • Spectacular view of Hagia Sophia, very near within walking distance to the main tourist attractions and the excellent location of the hotel in sultanamet area. All very much correct to price qulity and the interior style was like luxury Turkish. Staff were very helpful, room was comfortable and breakfast in the terrace was amazing.

    Very impolite and rude receptionist, unfriendly reception and. No hot water for almost 24 hours and coffee from the machine is the worst.

  • The location is perfect and within easy walking distance of many of the major tourist sights and the tram line. Near by the Blue Mosque, all just a few minutes stroll away and not all staff are very good in English. Room is clean tidy and breakfast is free.

    The view from window was not really nice and service was unreliable. Also the shower was broken we returned after our first day exploring.
