When I visited this hotel in winter 2015, the hotel was closed on my 3rd night because the establishment was not safe to occupy due to having rats. I saw a big rat in the restaurant and reported it to a member of staff. On that same day, when I returned from a day tour, found the hotel had been...

The hotel is a typical innercity boutique hotel, just a 5 minute (up hill) walk away from Grand Bazaar. The rooms are very small, but renovated and clean. The bathroom is also new offers everything you need. We had a room on the 4th floor and there was almost no wifi-connection. The breakfast isn't worth a word. BAAAAD!! The breakfast...

The hotel is best if you are in a budget vacation, it's not a luxurious place to stay but a good one to stay with as the manger is very accommodating And always tried to give a hand when ever we need something like a charger. He even book the bus for us going to gerome

I visited Istanbul in September and couldn't be more happier we decided to stay here :) The hotel is within walking distance of Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar which was a plus, but it felt like home. After a long day of walking, it was so ideal to come back to our room. Very clean and tidy, all the hotel...

Our travel agent booked this place for us as a cheap-ish option...its a good location,easy walk to blue mosque and other sites but leaves a bit to be desired..the toilet would only flush a single time before needing to be repaired, told the staff about this daily, they would come and repair but would only work for one flush, then...

Made the arrangements through booking.com. Was looking for an inexpensive place to stay. They offer breakfast in the morning on the roof top. Great views, good choices for breakfast. For the price I can't really complain. The staff was helpful and friendly. They arranged a taxi and also could help if you wanted to book a day trip. If you...

“nice view at breackfast, we had a street oriented room so it was a bit noisy (as there is the ritual to call the people to pray, so I think this is a general problem)”

“If you must, take a front room - so you don't have to watch the neighbors throwing garbage out the window. However, front rooms are a bit noisy as it is a busy street.”
