This hotel was very cheap and I really didn't expect much. I thought the staff was professional and helpful. They did help me set up a last minute tour to the Bosporus which I appreciated. The room is small, but with many amenities. My only complaint would be that it wreaked of cigarette smoke to the point of annoyance (and I'm a smoker). The location is central, but in a kind of back alley. I would recommend if you're a solo traveller seeking cheap, central accommodation but definitely not if you're traveling with kids or with a romantic partner.
