A wonderful ideally situated hotel”
Comfort, location, cleanliness
I stayed in the hotel for four nights with my wife and one year old baby. We really enjoyed our stay the hotel is ideally situated near Gulhane metro station close to Sultan Ahmed and Imunono touristic areas within access to other areas of the city. The hotel was clean and the room was spacious as well as the bathroom, air conditioned with small fridge. The furniture was excellent. There is a restaurant inside the hotel and many outside in addition to many shops of handicrafts etc. The staff was so friendly and professional. The breakfast was extremely generous and varied not to forget the delicious original Turkish honey! Our stay was a real pleasure and we look forward to staying there again next time we are in Istanbul. Jaafer Masaad - London. UK

Perfect”
Staff, Rooms, Location
Me and my girlfriend were spoiled rotten here. The room was small but perfect, the Staff, especially Buzent, were always friendly, helpful and professional. You absolutely cannot beat the location, which is walking distance from everything of interest. Thank you so much for making our holiday in Istanbul utterly brilliant.

Short stay in Istanbul”
Staff. Location. Comfort of bed.
Generally a good stay. The location was good for to see all the major tourist sights such as the grand bazaar, Ayia Sofia, The Blue Mosque and the Basillica Cistern, all walking distance. The tram stopped right outside with good links to other areas of the city. The room was comfortable but strangely had too much furniture and so felt a bit cramped! Bed had a very good mattress, slept very well. The free internet access was of good quality. On the whole the staff were pleasant and very helpful and happy to store our luggage for a couple of hours whilst we finished our sight-seeing.

Decent hotel, not too professional staffs”
Convenient location, decent room condition, decent breakfast
Staffs were not professional. We were there for 1 night and returned 2 days later. Thus we left some of our luggage with them while away. We were asked to leave the luggage at the corridor outside the locker and the promised to put the bags into the locker later. When we returned 2 days later, the bags were still in the same place as we left them outside the locker room! When queried when we returned, one of the staffs said the bags were in the locker and they took the bags out earlier that day. That is not possible as the bags were not labeled and they wouldn't have known that we were returning that day.
