My friend and I stayed here from 28 October 2015 till 05 November 2015. It is conveniently located in the center of all the sightseeing areas. Just seconds away from the Bacilica Cistern, Hagia Sophia, and Blue Mosque. Traditional Turkish breakfast in the morning with many lunch and dinner options just steps away. We had an amazing time.

I stayed here for 4 nights, and I enjoyed every moment of it. it is located within minutes walk to attractions and tram station. Mehmet always answered my email quickly. There are two young man and a lady working there. all very nice with big smile, they arranged airport shuttle transfer for me. they also provide me information on how to get to Chora church and Migros supermarket by public transportation. the day when I left in the morning, one young man walked me to a. small market near the hotel to get tea to bring back home as souvirnir.. He even ran to the market another time to get more while I was waiting for the airport shuttle. They treated their guests as VIP. I would definitely come back here when visiting Istanbul.
the breakfast is very good, free umbrella for the guests, the restaurant nearby is a little noisy, but it quiet down at night around 10 pm. room is clean. safe is handy for locking up passport etc. Wifi is the best during my 14 day trip. It is a very good value.

We were greeted by Ozkan who was the night agent. Very pleasant young man. Small rooms, and bathrooms, but for the 2 of us it was perfect. Hot water, clean room, quiet street.

Close to everything. 5 minute walt\k to Haga Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace.
Many restaurants within one block.

Service couldn't have been better. Offered tea every time we returned. Umbrella for the rain. Helped with taxi... evening running to the next street to flag one down when our's was late.

We would highly recommend this hotel!!

i stayed in this hotel for about 5 nights, its a very nice small hotel close to all major attractions in Istanbul, blue mosque, grand bazar, topkapi palace and ayasophia are just 5 minutes walking distance.
my room and bathroom was very very small, but very clean with all modern facilities. the staff was very cooperative and they kept our luggage safe while we travelled to the pammukale and capoddoccia.
overall a nice experience,
