    Everything was so good. Our room was comfortably and lovely. Staff and management have high level. Especially we liked hotel's restraunt, food was very tasty and waiters were so polite. Every day we had one bottle of water free, tea and coffe. It was really pleasant

    There is only one not good thing - hotel is situated near tram way. In some rooms are little noisy. But in ours was quite.

    Stayed here with 2 families for a week. Hotel location is excellent with all the main attractions and museums in SultanAhmet district are within short walking distance. Plenty of local restaurants, cafes, souvenir shops and tour agencies nearby. Breakfast is good. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. SultanAhmet tram stop is just 50m away from hotel and convenient to hop on if going to Taksim, Spice Market, Galata Bridge areas.

    The Location was amazing and it had loads of character and atmosphere. The Breakfast was great, a wonderful start to our busy days. The front of house man Guven was brilliant, kind and helpful.Suat in the Restaurant was cahrming and helpful as were all the cafe staff

    Only point was the size of our room 401, and consequently no view. The Advert did show a room with a view.

    We stayed in room 103 wich was very big and had a nice view exactly on the main street where you can feel the city. Friendly staff, excellent reccomendations. The hotel has a great location just few steps from Blue Mosquee, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. Best choice.

    Simple breakfast, but who cares with all the good food in the city.
