Reviewed 1 February 2012

My friend and I absolutely loved this place and its wonderful Turkish hospitality. The staff were just amazing - charming, helpful and friendly.

It is in a fab location in the centre of the old town. It is a very short walk to all the main sights and close to a plethora of restaurants and cafes. It is also close to a tram stop if you want to travel to other areas of the city.

The rooms are nicely decorated with an ethnic flare, very comfortable and clean and our bathroom was large and well equipped.

The breakfast buffet was lovely offering a wide range of options. We ate so much that it kept us going all day.

A really special hotel, we couldn't fault it.

This is a great hotel for a few reasons:

1.Top location- stones throw from all tourist sites.
2.Amazing staff.
3.Comfortable clean and nicely decorated rooms.
4. Luxury bathroom.

There is also a fabulous terrace, too cold for us to eat there but would be beautiful in the spring/summer.

Strongly recomended.

A terrific hotel slap bang in the middle of the historic district. I was really happy that it is so close to all the things I wanted to see, Hagia Sofia is on the doorstep and I had a great view from my room.

Nicely decorated rooms and very warm, I slept wonderfully.

Good bathroom and very clean, nice robe and slippers provided.

Superb staff, friendly and attentive and they really made you feel at home.

A professionally run hotel, all in all a first rate experience, would have no hesitation in recommending.

Spent a wonderful few days in this hotel. The service by all staff exceptional and it is clear that the place is well managed and all the staff are well trained.

The building itself is very characterful and attractive, located in a small road facing the Aya Sofia. Much nicer than so many of the modern hotels around and has an intimate and friendly atmosphere.Our room was gorgeous and beautifully decorated in Ottoman stlye and I really appreciated the attention to detail.

Breakfast is served in the winter in a pretty room with a nice view, I am not sure what the building is but I think it is a school. Good breakfast with wide range of Turkish options for those that want something different.

About 1 minute walk from the hotel there is a wonderful outdoors cafe tucked away in a quite street which has little "booths" built into the hill. It is really cute and would recommend having a cup of tea and some shisha on your way home at night.

Throughly enjoyed our stay - what really sets this place apart is the perfect location. It was amazing to see the Hagia Sofia from our room which was about 100 yards away and all the other top attractions are a very short walk away.

Everyone were very friendly, from the people that were working the front desk, Ozgur and Erhan to the restaurant service staff Eren, all were very helpful as well.

Great rooms, in good size, comfy bed and a lovely bathroom, good breakfast, all you can ask for.

Strongly recommended. Thank you for making our visit to Istanbul an experience we will always remember.
