THe hotel itself is clean. bright and ideally located. The staff are lovely, helpful and accomodating. The breakfast is varied, and even with a gluten free diet I was able to navigate round what was provided. When I revisit Istanbul I will stay here again. No faults found.

Overall great hotel. Highly recommended

Great hotel in central location, within 5m walking distance to the main sites. Is close to the tram for making those trips that are slightly further out of sultanahmet, but hidden in a quiet side street to avoid the street bustle. Staff were highly attentive and welcoming. We were upgraded to a room with a balcony which was a pleasant surprise. Rooms are clean and well proportioned in size. Breakfast was good but could be improved by having some variety from day to day . Overall would definitely recommend to family and friends.

A delightful escape.

We were overall pleasantly satisfied with the hotel and our surroundings but were disappointed that the 'Hammam' was under renovation.

Perfect Location

The hotel is located in a quiet spot in the centre of the old city of Istanbul about midway between the Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet) and Grand Bazaar. Best method of arrival is by Metro then tram (T1) from the airport disembarking at Cemberlitas. Recommended.
