    The location is excellent. The hotel is in the main street opposite the Blue Mosque and the Haghia Sofia. The staff is very helpful and they speak English. Good breakfast. Amazing view of the Blue Mosque from the breakfast room in the top floor.

    The rooms are very small, barely any space in which to move. Not very comfortable beds. Tiny wardrobe. No lift. Wifi only in common area. The smell of cigarette smoke from the other rooms. Daily cleaning of rooms is not thorough. Although we booked a double room for 10 days, we were put in a twin room for the first 2 days, then had to change to a double room after that. However, I would still recommend this hotel because of its location and helpful staff.

    The best possible location in Istanbul : in front of the Blue Mosk and Sultanahmet tramway station (very useful to go around town). Nice breakfast, with amazing view. Rooms are very basic but clean. I strongly recommand this hotel to all persons for whom location is what matters.

    Friendly staff, but be careful with the exchange rate when paying in turkish lira (TL). Just ask to see the current rate on the internet (TL rate fluctuates a lot apparently).

    The only positive thing about this hotel is the location. It is right on the main street close to all tourist attractions. It also has an amazing view on blue mosque from dining room. Nothing else is good about this hotel, you can find much better.

    Absolutely and utterly disgusting!! Do not stay here. We arrived at the hotel at night and someone was sleeping in our room before us (we suspect a hotel staff member) as sheets were messy and have used tissues on floor and half empty bottle of water. The shared bathroom was terrible and not clean. The room smelt and look like it had not been cleaned in a long time! Someone also tried to enter our room in the early hours of the morning even though our door was locked. For the price of this hotel you can find something else so much better!!

    Great location - very close to tourist attractions and to public transportation. Great price per room given the location.

    Rooms are rather small, and the beds could be more comfortable, but for the price you pay it's all about the location and not the comfort. Also found out the hard way that you can't pay by credit card early in the morning, as their system isn't working at that time - this is rather unacceptable for a hotel in such a large metropolis.

    The location. The hotel is close to the main monumental places. The view while taking breakfast is splendid,

    The room is very small. There is no wireless connection in floor 4, you have to go to the lobby.

    Fabulous

    Security, as a woman travelling alone I felt safe. The hotel rooms are basic, clean, adequate, and good value particularly for the online booking rates. This was my second visit.

    Superb

    Its excellent location right in the heart of Sultanahmet, just across the road from the Blue Mosque and a very short distance from the Aya Sofia. Right on the tram line.on the main thoroughfare of Sultanahmet, the most interesting part of Istanbul. Excellent buffet breakfast in roof restaurant looking over the Blue Mosque toward the sparkling Bosphorus. Clean and well appointed rooms, very helpful and polite staff. Great value for money!!!

    This hotel is a good value for the money. It is very clean and it is in a perfect location. It is also quiet at night.

    The rooms are very small.

    Guest rating

    Breakfast quite good. Easy acess to metro trains and food outlets.

    Wifi not available in rooms although informed by staff. Room cramp and lack of cupboard. No proper place to hang towels, jackets, clothes etc... NO cups or glasses even though an electric kettle is provided? Drink from the kettle??

    Location was the only nice thing about it! Breakfast room with view to Blue Mosquee was nice too! But there are several hotels with the same location much more nicer and about the same price! So, it really doesn't worth to spend your money there!

    1. Staff were really unfriendly and rude. The only two nice employers there were Omar (?...sorry for not being familiar with turkish names) at the front desk and the guy at the the bar during daytime. 2. I had bugs on my bed and couldn't sleep at all due to the terrible itching but Omar manage to move me to another room (hope will not get any ricketsiosis...lol). 3, The advertised wireless on their website only works on the first floor and very, very slow. I definely will not stay there again and doesn't recommend it at all! As a big traveller worlwide, this was really a terrible experience.
