Room is very small, bed is extremely hard, bathroom is small and looks worn out. Walls are thin, and you can here guests in other rooms. But, everything is clean, and hotel was peaceful at time of our stay. Pictures of breakfast buffet are completely fake. There is poor choice of food and drink. Breakfast room is small, but the view from it on Sultanahmet square is very nice. Staff are helpful and speaking English well. Overall, it is 2-star hotel, not 3-star as it's advertised. Because of it's excellent location, it is nevertheless good choice for 2-3 nights if you not expect too much.

The staff was great and very friendly and helpful with typical needs of visitors. The breakfast was fine and with the view of the sea and St. Sophia and Blue Mosque right outside the window what more could anyone ask. You step out the door and you are in the Hippodrom and entrance to the major sites 100 yards away. Lots of good restaurants, cafes, and shops all in the same area and walking distance to great seafood restaurants on the shore, too. Perfect location and great value!

As this was my first time in Istanbul, must say was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is strategically located and a walking distance to Aya Sofia and Sultanahmet among others. Looking forward to making yet another visit.

Really well situated although the Blue mosque muezzins might wake you up at 4:00 am... Awesome view from the breakfast terrace (now roofed, not like on the photo). Only Turkish products for breakfast. According to French standards, I would give **. I think it's expensive if one considers local wages and other prices...
