This hotel is located within 5 minutes walking distance to the main 'high' street, from there it is a short walk to the sights, eg. Blue Mosque, Museum, Palace and Grand Bazaar. You did hear the 5am prayer call but I think this would be be common wherever you stay in Turkey.

The hotel is well located on walking distance to all the main touristic attractions. The only problem was the air conditioning system which was unefficient and noisy. Employees were welcoming and competent

This was my first time to go to Turkey (Istanbul). I therefore cannot make any comparisons from experience of any other hotel. However, I was pleased with this hotel. It was in easy walking distance of Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and many other quaint places of interest. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean and tidy. My room had a bit of a sea view but was very spacious and kept exceedingly clean. It was very quiet too, couldn't hear people in the other rooms. The breakfast didn't have a very wide selection but, that said, there was enough for me but that might not be the case for everyone. All-in-all this was a good hotel and I would stay there again unless I decided to give another hotel a try just for some variety. I can't imagine I'd want to stay in any other area though except Sultanahmet. I had the most wonderful time in Istanbul and I can't wait to go back again! ENJOY! :)

When I arrived at the hotel, I was told that there was no room available and that they would give me a room in another hotel in the area. I was escorted to the other hotel about 200m from the Santa Sophia and was given a room there. The room was in the back of the hotel overlooking an alley, very basic but at least it was decently clean and the had a renovated bathroom. The location is good near the Champerlize tram station, the Grand Bazaar, Ayia Sofia and the Blue Mosque. Breakfast was ok. Overall, I wouldn't recommend it, because I don't like getting bumped to a different hotel from the one I have chosen.
