              The location only .

              During my stay at the hotel every day there was some construction inside the hotel going on,and I could not have a good rest during the day,so I had to stay most of the time outisde the hotel.It was very bad experiance,and I believe they should have informed us befor going there,because nobody can have a good rest in such situation.

              Rhe resturant on the roooooooof

              The Elevator is very small and there is only one,

            • Family with children
              5.0

              The location was excelent, just a few steps from the most important sightseing places and the Grand Bazar.

              Breakfast was much poorer than in other turkish hotels and very bad organised (there were never enough cups for coffee, every day we had to ask for napkins, water for tea alwas ran out, eggs ran out, tables were in very uncomfortable positions, etc). For higiene reasons (and international standards), the waitresses should have their hair in a pony tail.

            • Older travelers

              Friendly staff, excellent service, perfect location for Istanbul

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              This hotel has got wonderful friendly staff, so young, helpful and open. The hotel is located just a few minutes from everything in the Old Town - probably the best location. The rooftop terrace is excellent. We will be back.

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              Location, room, hotel staff - all was excellent

            • Couple
              5.0

              I only liked it's location.

              Overall I think the price was waaaaayyy to high for what the hotel offered. I wouldn't book again. Eitherway this is something you know before you book. What you don't know is that walls are paper thin. You could hear the person in the other room whispering...Take care if you need some kind of isolation.

            • Older travelers
              7.0

              Convenient location for historic city, and stunning view. Friendly and helpful staff, although many - including bar staff - had no English.

              The description of this room as a "suite" was misleading. It was a small room with ensuite bathroom. The only outstanding thing about it was a small balcony with stunning views. It had a small wardrobe but no drawers - inadequate for a 5-day stay. It had badly fitting, inadequate curtains which did not fully cover the windows. A radiator could not be turned off,. This was not attended to in spite of several complaints, so the room was unbearably hot at night. We therefore had to sleep with a window open, which let in the street noise and disturbed our nights.

            • Family with children
              4.2

              The only good thing about this hotel is the location.

              The rooms are small and there are no such family room as shown in the website, the family room is a standard double room with an additional bed enforced in between the two beds which made the room too congested and it is not even matching to the original beds shape. Insulation is too poor in the hotel where you hear the neighbor room very clearly. Bathroom is not clean where you can see the bacteria covering a big portion of the bathtub and the floor and if someone is using the bathroom on top floor or neighbor rooms you can hear them and you can hear the water in the drain or during flushing while sitting in the room. some of staff are not too cooperative and show no smile.

            • Couple
              9.2

              It is a very nice hotel and we were really happy with the room.

            • Single
              5.8

              Size and the building facade of the hotel looks like a real reputable (cheesy) hotel

              I have booked for 5 nights and was charged the next day after booking the rooms. I had to leave earlier and my money was not refunded even for 1 day! I gave a plenty of warning. When booking the hotel in my comment box i made appropriate requests and everything was ignored

            • Group of friends
              9.2

              Services and location excellent !

            • Couple
              8.8

              I enjoyed the location above all else.

              The size of the room was small. It was hard to find a place to lay out suitcases.

            • Couple
              10.0

              Very kind and helpful staff. Prime location in Sultanahmet. Clean and comfortable room.

              The superior double room is small, but it is fine for me as a tourist who spend the day around Istanbul. The airport shuttle price is a little bit high (€25 and €20).

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              The staff were courteous and helpful. They also humoured my attempts to speak Turkish ! The buffet breakfast was hassle free, of good quality and well-stocked.

              The room was on the small side . . . but in fairness so was the price :-)
