    Breakfast was so delicious and so fresh. Room is so clean and comfortable. Reception is very nice. All the staff were helpful and nice. The location is excellent ten steps from the tram. Unlike other comments the team was not noisy at all.

    We were 6 nights in this hotel. It's cheap enough for the services they provide. Clean room, good breakfast, kind waiters. The position is perfect: near the port where's the Gold Horn (Eminou), near Topkapi palace, Haya Sophia and... near the tram... probably too much...More

    With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
    stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
