                                  • Shops spill into each other, all interesting places off Istanbul on walking distance and staff for the most part friendly and helpful. The bedroom is clean, food at the terrace restaurant is excellent and the spa is great.

                                    Its location in the old city of sultan ahmed and small rooms. The breakfast choices were meager.

                                  • Comfortable, clean and good location, the bazaars the museum and the beautiful mosques. Nice place to stay and a warm home away from home. Just minutes from topkapi and within easy walking distance of the Blue Mosque. Prices are reasonable, the service and the staff are excellent and the bathroom is small as well.

                                    Breakfast food is the worst one can find in the city and the restaurants on the same street as the hotel are very expensive. The rooms are tiny.

                                  • The location was perfect and the hotel was clean. The staff were great and mr orhan karaccas the manager was most helpful. Rooms were very comfortable and breakfast was simple.

                                    The popular street never gets too noisy, uncomfortable beds.

                                  • The location was fantastic and the bed was very comfortable and the street noise abates around 10PM. This hotel was amazing and staff were available. The room was clean, food was reasonable and concierge was one of the best I have ever come across.

                                    The stuff not professional and high price in all seasons. Bedroom walls very thin, the bathtub is 70 cm long and the breakfast service is slow and there are no fresh fruits.
