Very good hotel and a perfect base for exploring the local sites, the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, the Topkapi Palace and the Yerebatan Cistern all within ten minutes walk. Staff at the hotel could not be more helpful and attentive. Very good breakfast with lots of variety and helpful staff on hand. Room was comfortable and clean and afforded a good view of the Bosphorus which is only five minutes walk away. Would definitely recommend.

The hotel is on a small side-street in the Sultanahmet district. While the side-street means there is no traffic noise, it also made it a bit harder to find (my taxi driver went around many streets trying to find it). However once I checked in they gave me a card with the address and a map on it to show to the driver and then on it wasn't a problem.

Check-in was easy and there is a nice foyer. The hotel is small with only 17 rooms spread over 4 floors. There is only one lift but I never had to wait long.

The room was nicely decorated but a little dated. The room size was adequate. I did note a fair bit of noise from other rooms as the walls are not very soundproof. I think this is more the fault of other (inconsiderate) guests rather than the hotel. The room had a minibar (no alcohol) which was very reasonably priced (3TL for a Coke). I commend them for not inflating prices like other hotels.

Breakfast was included in my rate and is held on the bottom floor (under Reception). The food was Turkish style with olives, cheeses, salads, breads, jams, honey, cakes, etc. They will also offer to cook you an omelette. My tip - try dipping simit bread into some clotted cream and honey!

The hotel is in a great area for sightseeing. Once you get directions (walking some back streets) you find that all the major attractions are a short walk away. If you want to travel further, the Sultanahmet tram station is a 10-15 minute walk away. Also around the hotel are many restaurants, souvenir shops and even a mini-market.

One of the main things I liked about this hotel (other than breakfast) was the staff. The best way to describe the service is "respectful". I noted that the person at reception would always stand whenever I went past. At this hotel I felt like a valued guest.

The service was excellent, all the staff were very attentive and a fantastic Turkish breakfast.. The room was very tasteful, comfortable, clean with a great view over the Bosphoros and from the rooftop terrace you can see the Blue Mosque. The location was excellent, in a fairly quiet area just minutes walk away from great restaurants, shops and all the must see attractions (Topkapi Palace and park, Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque). The lightrail tramway public transport system is just beyond these attractions

Room tip: High floor with Bosphoros view

One of the nicest small hotels I have been. The location in Sultanahmet is close to all the tourist attractions and public transportation. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Possibility to have breakfast outside in a little garden and also enjoy the view to Bosporus and the Asian side of Istanbul. The only downside I could point out is that the WiFi was a bit slow (but maybe a good way to get out of the routine :) )
