Great location, staff very helpful ”
Location, staff, breakfast
The hotel is conveniently located within 5-10 min walking distance from Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Archaeology Museum. There is also a metro stop right outside the hotel. The staff working there are very friendly and helped me with directions and routes to places where I wanted to visit. There is also a good variety of food served for breakfast. The only thing I was slightly disappointed in was that there was no view of Hagia Sophia from the rooftop terrace, as advertised in the photos. I had brought my camera and tripod and was planning on taking the sunrise picture with Hagia sophia from the hotel's rooftop. in the end I went to a nearby restaurant with a rooftop view of Hagia Sophia and the Bosporus and took my pics from there.

Great location but rooms not so good”
Location, helpful staff
this hotel is very well located in sultanahment - though rooms on the front must find the traffic, including trams, rather disturbing. the staff are amazingly helpful in giving information, helping book stuff etc - including introducing you to the friendly carpet salesman from next door. they do a great breakfast, actually it is better than that, it's wonderful, served on the rooftop terrace. after that it's all downhill. the reception is a poky little desk underneath the stairs. the stairs - quite a lot of them and no lift/elevator. the corridors have those automatic lights that turn themselves off so you're heading into a black hole until the lights click back on. the rooms are small - it's in the middle of sultanahment, of course they are, and the decoration is fusty and old fashioned and the furniture is a rather eclectic collection and there are no english channels on the tv - lots of channels, so it takes you a long time to discover none are english. it's a fair price for what it is. for what it is it's ok.

Great location, ultimately guest-friendly”
Very clean, big rooms, good breakfast, very friendly chief
Location is really great. You don't need to use a taxi or transfer (20-30 euro), for a 4 euro(for 2) and 1hour we reached the hotel by the local transport. From Ataturk airport we catch the metro train (till Zeitinburnu sattion), then you change the metro to tram (very easy, only go down from the metro station), and simply go to the Gulhane station (next to the Sultanahmet stop). Location is fantastic - 2 min walking to St.Sofia, Blue Mosk, Cisterna, 5 min to Topkapi Palace. Our room was quite big and very clean, also it was good cleaned every day. TV has no English channels. A kettle, tea, coffee, sugar and water is free in the room. Quite big shower room. Veru friendly manager who checked us on, helped to bring luggage to the room. Unbelievable friendly chief who maked breakfasts. Besides the differency of eat he made for us special welcome dishes :) everything was very tasty.

귤하네공원 바로 앞의 가성비 좋은 호텔.”
룸이 다소 구부러진 형태여서 좀 불편했지만... 편하게 잘 수 있었다. 옥상에서 조식 먹으며 이스탄불의 전경을 볼 수 있고 음식도 훌륭함. 다만, 쉽게 찾을 수 없는 입구는 아쉬운점.

Perfekt läge och trevlig persona”
Läget, personalen, frukost
Jättetrevligt hotell med perfekt läge nära alla sevärdheter, ett par minuters promenad till närmsta spårvagnshållplats. Personalen var jättetrevlig och jag fick många bra tips.
