Very good hotel. All people are nice specially Nil the manager (very very good manager), Israfil, and the recipionist ( forget the name ). I recommend anyone to visit this hotel. The breakfast is tasty and the music is very nice. I was happy having shisha every morning in the Harems restaurant. Thank you Balin.

Our room overlooked a beautiful, tiny local mosque. With the window open we heard Call to Prayer. With the window closed, we heard nothing. We chose to have the window open, even though there was air conditioning. The room was very small but perfectly comfortable with a reasonable private bathroom. The restaurant downstairs opened onto the street - absolutely perfect...

To start, the location is fantastic, 300 yards to the Grand Bazaar, 10/12 mins to Sultanahmet Square where the Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Mosaic Museum, Hippodrome and the Basilica Cistern are located, the Big Bus tours leave from this square as well. The tram which runs past the square will take you to the piers for Ferry/Boat trips...

Amazing boutique hotel cafe bar and staff. Really enjoyed my stay here with my sister. The rooms were spacious clean and always maintained well.

This is a mid-scale boutique hotel, but it is only the lobby and restaurant that has a boutique element to it. The lobby has a lovely Turkish feel to it and the restaurant has a beautiful glass section with huge sliding windowns that opens onto the street. The rooms however are very small and only has a tiny shower in...
