    Small hotel in the heart of Sultanahmet. Very convenient location if you’re a tourist. My room was extremely clean, with comfortable bed, good AC, bottled water, tea/coffee and everything else you might need. The only thing missing was a hairdryer. But this wasn’t a big problem.

    I had a single room which was really small. Cozy and clean though. It can get loud because of trams passing just under the hotel windows. But with window closed it’s not a problem. Also, trams stop operating late at night, so it gets quiet at some point.

    Great location. Nice and friendly staff. Clean and well prepared room. Possible early check in. The breakfast was good (traditional meal + fresh fruits). Definitely recommended!

    Little bit noisy, but this is due to the center location. Just close the window, turn on the air condition and everything is fine :)

    In a very convenient location which is next to the main attractions including the Palace, Cistern and Hagia Sophia. Clean hotel and drinking water is offered. Breakfast is good with plenty of choices.

    Took some time to check in as the staff is away from the desk. Very bad internet in the hotel room, almost no signal.

    The location of this hotel is really nice. It’s near istanbul’s top attractions. The tram passes beneath the hotel which makes transporting very easy. The staff are very helpful, specially the two syrian guys. Regarding the breakfast, it’s on the terrace where you have it with a view. Also, it’s wide and tastes good. I recommend adding more cookies, pastries and maybe soup.

    The rooms that are on the street are noisy due to the tram. However, the rooms that are from the other side are better.
