Great location. Not 5 star.

Expected to book a 5 star hotel. Turns out this was more of mid range 4 star at best. Shower could not produce hot water. Rooms are dated and not cleaned to a high level. Location is fantastic. Staff were helpful and tried their best to make my stay enjoyable. Would probably stay here again.

Excellent Hotel

The hotel is well run, the staff polite and efficient, and the rooms though a bit small are well designed and appointed, and very clean. The breakfasts are good value with a wide range of food. But the biggest plus is the 2-minute walk to Aya Sophia and the major sights.

Gutes und Sauberes Hotel (Zentrumsnah)

Das Hote l- Restaurant sollte unbedingt vermieden werden. Schlechter Service, Schlechtes Essen, Total Überteuert!
