                            • Great walking area, good price and other hotels. Very warm and friendly staff, clean room, bars traditional cafes. Large choice at breakfast buffet and spa and Turkish hammam facilities available at a charge.

                              Location is fantastic for the old town.

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

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 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.
