        It was very close to old town, Aya Sofia and shopping center. The breakfast was good.

        The room was very small, we coudn't stand in it, not very clean, there was no electric kettle, tea, cups or anything.

      • Older travelers

        Everything mentioned above, but particulary the staff and the ambience. We enjoyed the beakfasts, the position of our room, the location, close to all the important sites in central Istanbul, chatting to very friendly and helpful staff.

        I only wish we had asked for a heater in our room, which was cold, particularly at night, because the heating had been switched off for the summer. Otherwise we were extremely satisfied and would use the hotel again- perhaps in winter or further into the summer!
