Very nice boutique hotel in the heart of the historical Sultanhamet district. The hotel is located at walking distance from the tramway and the main attractions like: the blue mosque, St. Sophia museum, the grand bazaar, Topkapi palace and many other sites. Authentic oriental interior design, very friendly and dedicated staff with good tourist information desk. My stay was really perfect. Only two weak points: the breakfast buffet was not at the level of the hotel and some rooms have no view at all !

Being my first experience in Istanbul I was fully satisfied with the hotel

Well, had we been informed that the hotel was undergoing a major refurbishment and that during the day it was like a building site and even at night had the pungent smell of thinners, plus half the amenities such as lift (I have arthritis and was two stories down from the ground floor), and more superior restaurant were not available, we would have been at least forewarned. The hotel staff, who were excellent, said that they did contact anyone who had booked directly with them. Shame you didn't think to do so too. The hotel contacted me afterwards and we had correspondance resulting in them offering us a two-night stay in a suite when the refurbishment is completed. That is fair and we will be taking them up on it. I didn't ask for this, just that they obviously value their customers. What a shame your service isn't quite so good. I am assured that the rooms will all be bigger when they have finished. It's not the rooms that are the problem but the bathroom. The breakfasts were excellent, but we ate in the restaurant where we had breakfast one evening, and it was very disappointing. There are normally two, one superior, and we'd hoped to sample that. I won't recommend this hotel until the renovations are complete. Then, I'll see...

Ideal location in Sultanahmet - surrounded by main sites and could hear call to prayer, which made it feel like an authentic stay. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good range on buffet for breakfast. I imagine the roof terrace in the summer is lovely but too cold to use in November. Overall I would recommend staying here.

The food offered in the hotel restaurant is of poor quality, particularly when compared to the overall standard of the hotel.

The hotel is very conveniently located in close walking distance to key historical sites in the ancient city - Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque and Haghia Sophia. Our room was fairly small, but the hotel was quiet and breakfast was great.

Great location. Right behind Hogia Sofia church. Only down side is the bed. Hard as a rock. Tuff to sleep on. Food in restraunt is very good. Very friendly staff.

A beautiful, well run and well located hotel. We had a lovely stay. They were very accommodating, picking each of us up at the airport at different times for a small fee. The rooms are nicely furnished, comfortable but a bit small--although very adequate. And they had C-span in English for us news junkies! I highly recommend this delightful hotel.
