The establishment should be ashamed of themselves for even offering this tiny room for rental. It was directly on the street and extremely noisy. The pubic hair in the "cleaned" bathroom didn't help either. Skip this place.

Room was small with dirty bath with smell of sweat in the pillow, No air-conditioning, I have sent them an email that I will arrive late, I was given the room next to reception in ground floor, without air-conditioning so if you open the window then you cannot sleep due to the noisy street and closed windows it's too hot, I request the night reception man for checkout at 12:00 pm, he agree but next day the lady who was in the reception knocked my door at 11:00 Am and even opened the door while I was sleeping to tell me in rude way that I have to leave, breakfast is very basic, with someone watch what you take, this hotel is good only for one night stay, if you are so tired and cannot find alternative

We stayed in the attic room which required stooping in places to avoid hitting your head! It did have a balcony but access was through the window because the door didn't unlock. Breakfast was good. Kebap and Fish restaurant 2 doors down and on top terrace was great. Location in Sultanhamet good.

Fantastic location. Spacious and clean rooms. Good value for money. This was a good start to our first trip to Istanbul and would definitely look at returning on our next trip.
