Nice enough

My partner is disabled and we requested a disabled room. Disabled facilities were listed on the Hotel home page and that was the prime reason we chose this establishment. When we got there they didn't have rooms for the disabled so my partner had to go without a shower for 5 days. The breakfast was great and the lady who ran the dinning room was really sweet. The reception staff seemed to lose interest in us when we declined their offer to arrange expensive excursions. Phil U.K.

A quick trip to Istanbul

This is a very nice compact hotel with very, very nice staff and good facilities. it is near the attractions of the Blue Mosque and the Gullaine park and the markets and many other attractions in this part of the city, its very near the tram stop and has nice bars and restaurants in walking distance. I had a hire car and as with most areas of Istanbul parking is at a premium. in this hotel parking was arranged very quickly and at a price that wasn't too expensive, in my view, and that was safe and assessable and near. in my view this hotel is very convenient, comfortable and affordable and if that is what any traveller is looking for then its very easy for me to recommend this hotel.

Ok for a short city break

Beware. The photos of the bedrooms shown can only be of the highest price suite. They are nothing like the standard rooms, which are small and do not even have room for two suitcases. This hotel is small and at best of average average quality and is way oversold by the photos. It overlooks a patch of derelict land. The staff were polite and helpful but their English was not good.

Mrs ordinary

The beauty of this hotel is its location. To present it with anything other than ordinary is a mistake. It's totally un eventful. The view is not good and I thought its being over priced for the standard.

Excellent location

Warm welcome late at night, and great service from all staff. Superb location for Topkapi, Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque and Basilica Cistern and tram stops. Just a shame there isn't room in the double rooms for a comfy chair - only a pouffe in ours!) and the chair at the internet desk is excruciatingly uncomfortable. The terrace was out of use until the last couple of days of our stay so there was nowhere to sit out and relax until then. The spa could do with a makeover and a clean - I was the only person in there and yet there were empty shampoo bottles scattered around. But, the food was excellent, the hotel gave value for money and is ideal for visiting Istanbul.

Bad everything!

This hotel is not 4stars lol no where near! It's not even one! First of all our flight was delayed... So they have away our room! They put us in a another room saying they would change it the next day... Next day now they said they didn't have any rooms! So we would stay In the room we were in... Our friend wasn't alowed in our room at all! Until he payed 90tl even though he wasn't staying... This happened a lot!!! On our last day they woke us up!!! We were pretty tired and hangover so they could move us!! Lol because they needed the room... No apology apparently they did us a favour by letting us stay in that room! Even though it was horrid' the view is the worst thing in the world .... Staff rude! Not helpful... We tried the breakfast once ......,,..... Bad bad bad! I wouldn't go bk here again EVER! This should not be advertised as 4star as that is the biggest scam ever! Don't stay here..... Just don't do it I hardly stayed here as I had friend that lived in turkey and still when ever I went there to change there was always something! The spa looks gross and dirty! Oh and the free cocktail is orange and cherry juice... No alcohol and your room you only get comp coffee and water for the first day after they charge you... And the minibar smelt of gone off milk.... Horrible, the only good thing the location perfect location!

Close to perfect

If you want to be close to the major sites that Istanbul has to offer but just a block off the noise and hustle of this vibrant city, then this is a great choice. Booking through eBookings saved us a lot compared to other online sites or going direct to the hotels website.
