        We liked the location, convenient and it was very close to the main attractions in istanbul and easy to get to places using the tram which was only 2 min away. Room was of decent size, cleaned everyday. Good breakfast, had a variety of items. The host, Fatima and rest of staff were friendly and very helpful. Enjoyed our stay here.

        No tea/coffee in the room although a kettle and mugs were provided. Otherwise everything was good

        When I arrived, I had a severe cold. The bell boy noticed and brought me a complementary fruit basket. The location of the hotel is excellent: Topaki Palace, Grand Bazar, Cagaloglu Hamami, Blue Mosque, Haga Sofia, etc. are all on walking distance from the hotel. At the beginning of the hotel's street there is also an Irish pub (with Turkish music and staff though) and accross the hotel Turkish Kitchen restaurant serves good local food. Hotel rooms are small but clean and -to my opinion- tastefully decorated. Some furniture pieces looked-like some I have at home. Minibar present.

        Please don't forget to bring your ear plugs as you will hear people walking and talking around your room, especially in the morning. Breakfast is only served between 7 and 10 am. What they serve is ok for 1 or 2 days, but somewhat limited for a longer stay. Not perfect but I think you get worth for your money.

        The location is very good in order to visit the main attractions of Istanbul.

        The parking place is not enough for every guest, but you can find another one on the corner.

        Location was excellent however the room was very small. Cupboard space was very limited so unpacking was impossible. Very quiet and comfortable.

        Everything was Just Perfect . First I had a problem with My Stay in Istanbul and They solve it to me. The Location of the Hotel is Just 1 min Away from Main Metro Station and 10 Min Walking from the central of Sultan Ahmet ( Topkapi , Blue Mosque , Hagia Sophia ) and 20 from Grand Bazar . The Stuff are Great and very Helpful . I will definently stay there during my next visit to Istanbul

        Staff very friendly and helpfull. The room was nice and clean. The hotel has a very good location, 5 minutes by feet from Aya Sophia and Topkapi, 10 min from the Bosphorus. Just front the street, u can fin tram Gulhane.Internet is free for the customers.

        The breakfast was varied but the quality is not good. Bread not tasty, sweet bakkeries very oily and not tasty. Coffee machine, not a real coffee. They can do better especially for 14 euros. The view from my room, front a wall, back side of the hotel.

        Friendly staff. Excellent location.

        Rooms are so small, no stand for the suitcase. By the time the suitcase is on the floor you had to go over the bed to go from one side of the bed to the next. We complained and transferred to a bigger room the next day but it was only very slightly better. Wanted to stay two extra days but the hotel eas full and the staff could have been much more helpful finding another hotel.
