Excellent hotel, excellent service
The room was cosy and the hotel location in the old city had you transported back to the Ottoman period. The service was excellent.

Service with a smile
The Service and staff attitude
Excellent location. The location in the old city is convenient for you to experience the old city way of life. There are people milling around, siottinng on the corners drinking "cay" and even dogs sleeping by the roadside

Small Friendly Hotel
This hotel is situated about 500 metres from the main street that takes you down to the mosque and leads to the Bazzar. If you have trouble walking then you should have a rethink because it is on a steep hill and there is no public transport to it. Overall the hotel is clean and quiet. There is no lift but that wasn't a probelm for me. The stairs are difficult to negeotiate for someone who is unsteady on their feet as they are spiral stairs. Locally there are plenty of restuarants to keep you fed and it is within easy striking distance from all the old town sights.

Nice hotel on a hill
Very nice room, bathroom, service and great location
The hotel was very nice, room was very spacious, very clear bathroom. The breakfast was very good with fresh fruit, vegetables, tea, juice, salami, eggs etc. The only inconvenient thing was the location: it is on a 30 degree slope/hill with very hard access for cars. Also for some reason the hotel number on the street was 70 not 100 as was in the booking. It takes about 30 min to get to the main part of Istanbul with the Blue Mosque and the Aya Sofia.

small hotel with big rooms
convenient for exploring bazaar
I must say that the first impression was not so great. We were dismayed when we realized that the taxi could not reach the hotel. We had to walk with the luggage in very steep street. Fortunately someone from the hotel came to help us. Then they said they did not receive our paid reservation from Agoda and proposed a very small and not at all convenient room on the first floor. Eventually the owner "found" an empty room on the 2nd floor. Nice big room. But if the first impression counts, I cannot say whether I'd be ready to go there again. The location however was great to explore the bazaar (our main goal when choosing the hotel) and from here, people can experience a little of Istanbul "vie de quartier". I would not recommend the hotel in any case for any one with small child (3 years) like us.

The hotel staff were all very corteous and helpful
Location was very near to the tourist spots.
The hotel is very conveniently located and has easy access to the main tourist spots. The hotel staff were very courteous and helpfull, the breakfast provided was also good and there is not much you can complain.The hotel is situated on a slope therefore accessing it is a bit difficult for people of old age.The area around the hotel is a bit dirty and requires local muncipality to take care.

Authentic turkish hotel
Very clean
we are arrived from airport very late, almost midnight. haven't had dinner, but the hotel is near a fish market, which many restaurants are walking distance. the receptionist was very nice, explaining many things, as it was our first time in istanbul. so he explained about the tours, how to get around, how to use the tram, etc. he was very nice. the hotel is in an old building, it doesn't have an elevator. we were traveling for more than two weeks, so our two big luggage were a little bit of a problem. but the receptionist (i totally forgot his name) helped with them. seemed like he was used to it, lift a big luggage climbing on stiff stairs. the room was super clean, bright, and cozy, even though small. but when you go out in the early morning and came back late at night after some tours around istanbul, this hotel is more than enough. what i don't really like is the breakfast room. it is located in the basement, but quite dark, humid, it seems not enough sun coming into the room. not exactly the kind of room you want to be when you want to be in the summer. but i suppose it will keep you warm during the winter.
