This hotel has a convinient position, well located in the old part of the city (Sultanhamet). The rooms, even if they're not too big, are confortable and clean, as well as the bathrooms. The breakfast is very good. Each time when I come to Istanbul, I stay here. Highly recommendable!

We spent one night at the hotel last week. We found the hotel easy to find, located to the old city. The room was quite small, the walls were very thin but the hotel was very clean, the service at the reception was correct. The breakfast was nice. If you want to use the facilities it is not include in the price (€13 extra).

Room Tip: avoid if possible the bedrooms in the back street there is shop air-conditioning working all night!

I do not know who anointed this hotel with four stars; but, they are wrong based on my travel experience. My expectations were high based on what I read and saw on this hotel's website; but, in reality things were quite different than the pictures presented.

The hotel room was small, basic, and I cannot begin to imagine two people in the same room. There was about a foot of distance between the bed and the walls, and nearly two feet from the foot of the bed to the wall. The bathroom is even more compact and you can wash your hands while using the sanitary facilities. The only thing smaller in this hotel are the two phone-booth sized elevators which are modern and functioned well.

The flat screen TV was about the size of a computer monitor. The cordless phone had a built-in alarm that was impossible to turn-off. But the phone alarm was less of an issue than the pre-sunrise "call to prayers" blasted from the speakers atop the minarets of the mosque one block away, as well as up to five times a day. But this is the case all over the city and not just at this hotel.

The free breakfast is a bit of a diversion for those accustomed to a typical American style breakfast. For obvious religious reasons, there is no bacon, ham or similar breakfast meat to be found. But boiled eggs, cereal, yogurt and fresh fruits and bread will hold you over until lunch. There is an array of olives and cheeses available, as well. But the two strongest things you are likely to encounter in Turkey are the coffee and tea!

The good news is this is a non smoking hotel, except to those who elect to do otherwise. And management certainly never objects to such smoking. If visiting the lower level spa area you might find the staff sitting around smoking, as well. It seems smoking might be the national pastime in Turkey.

While the location of this hotel is OK for walking to the prime tourist sites to the east in the old city, a word of caution, the neighboring area to the west of this hotel is a bit "dodgy" and there are pick-pockets plying their trade. Make certain you carry your wallet high and in a place not easily accessible. The pick-pockets will pretend to begin to faint and fall back into your arms. While you are attempting to catch the falling person, they are helping them self to the contents of your pockets.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the backside of the hotel if you do not want to be blasted out of bed before the sun comes up.

When i booked this accommodation during my search on Expedia it seemed very cheap in price and heavily priced according to the images uploaded on the website, it seemed royal and 5 star service. The moment we arrived the staff were very unhelpful and it was a disgrace. So i urge everybody please dont go by the images please!!! Its awful.

Room Tip: None please dont go by the images. Its not the same.
