    The terrace view is amazing and the kindness of the staff (expecially the owner) is fantastic.

    The size of room 301 (ours) is really small for two persons.

    Good

    The rooftop view & breakfast is everything. Lovely views of Bosphorous from front & views of Blue Mosque & Aya Sofia from back. (this was 4 steepish flights up) The breakfast was a good buffet choice.

    Back rooms v near to trainline (although quiet bn 11pm & 5.30am). Like most of Sultanahmet the call to prayer is pretty loud. Moved to front room because of electric wiring causing flashing. Shower base leaking water onto floor. Only 1 sheet on bed! But the rooftop terrace almost makes all these worth it &pretty cheap for this area. So would recommend with these reservations.

    Very friendly, helpful staff. Nice view from the rooftop terrace. Very easy walk to the Blue Mosque along a pretty street. Clean, nice rooms.

    The room and bathroom were very small, making it tough to navigate with two people and suitcases.

    I must say that this was a perfect choice for me - price, location, facilities, view from the terrace and from the room and, last but not least, the staff. The people were very friendly and helpful - I mean it absolutely seriously. Our best greetings to Sofiya, she was very nice to us and always ready to help (but all other people were also very good and professional). We incredibly enjoyed our trip, and a separate topic is the breakfast - it can beat some breakfasts in the **** hotels, you'll never expect such a great breakfast from a *** hotel, neither in Europe, not in Russia. I would definitely come again - I hope I will someday. No doubt - a perfect hotel. By the way, the trains don't go at night (some people were complaining), and hearing the call of the mosquee located nearby brings very authentic feeling of "1001 nights", especially while looking at the Blue Mosquee. Perfect choice!!! Highly recommend!

    Location. For short stays with interest in city tours, local shoping, local restaurants, it is very convenient. People are very courteous and friendly.

    We could have used more verieties in vegetarian culinery.

    Very good

    The location was great, closest tram connection was at Sultanahmet but with the Blue Mosque, the Haya Sofia and the Bosforus nearby (which you could all admire during your breakfast). The staff was friendly, even allowed some of our friends to store their luggage (which was convenient because of the great location). The bed was also comfortable.

    The room was quite small, big enough to leave your luggage, get (un)dressed and go to bed but nothing more. Of course you wouldn't want do more in your hotel room if Istanbul is waiting outside. Not really a negative point, just a point of attention, they charge an 8% fee for card payments, so be sure to have some cash.

    Good

    It was very close to the historical city center. Personal was quite friendly and nice.

    Quite bad sound isolation. It is hard to sleep on a same floor with reception (personal goes sleep very late and starts working very early). Also there are railways less then 10 meters from hotel. Some rooms might not have a shower.

    Location was good in terms of proximity to tourist places. Staff was friendly. Breakfast on the terrace on the roof was also very good and with beautiful view.

    I was surprised that the window of my room was going to another room instead of the street! That is why there was no fresh air. I was a little bit drunk, that is why fresh air during the night was essential. Also the hotel is situated very close to the railway, and during whole night I felt like the trains were going over me. In addition bedspread had a terrible smell, I don't know why. Maybe it wasn't cleaned since its purchase ages ago.

    The hotel does not have lift and you have to go six floor (64 steps) for breakfast. Railway is beside you with lots of loud voices but you habituate to it.

    Very good

    Me and my sister stayed there for 10 days during our Easter Holiday. The place is in Sultanahmet, close to the main touristic attractions. The rooms are very clean and the breakfast is always the same but there is a lot to choose from. During breakfast the staff talks to the guests and always ask you if you want more tea, more coffee, help you with your visit plans .. The view from the terrace is great, since you can see the sea from there, the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The staff from the hotel are nice but the owner is extremely very too nice!

    The streets near the hotel and very narrow and are very complicated. We got lost many times in our fist day there. The train was passing in front of our window and is very loud. There was a mosque right in front of our window and we could hear the calling from prayer. First we were thinking we will like to hear this....but when it happened at 5.30 in the morning we didn't know what terrorist attack or earthquake happens and where to run. The walls and very thin and you can hear everything from the other rooms. For example we were staying at the 5th floor and at the 6th was the terrace where the breakfast was being served. In the morning, from 6-7 o'clock we could hear all the plates and glasses being moved around. They do not accept any guests, so if I wanted to go up in the room with an old friend, they acted rude. There is no elevator so you always need to use the spiral stairs that can be a little dangerous. But all in all the place is nice and friendly and the prices are ok.
