Fair 4.0
We arrived early in the morning 05.30 i had contacted the hotel before hand and told them for a early check in but on arrival no one knew anything about it !!! So it was a case of wondering the streets until the room became available at 1pm !! On checking in the room seemed fine until closer inspection the carpet was very worn and unclean and the bathroom was tiny the door would only open half way because of sink area and you had to squeeze through the gap then close the door to use the sink !!! Useing the toilet was even worse you had to fully open the shower door if you wanted to sit on the toilet meaning your feet were half way in the shower area not a good feeling just after a shower :-(((( wifi was neither here or there just your luck if you got it or not :-((( no coffee or way of making coffee !! Noisy after 8am even i was on the second floor i could people 3 floors up in the breakfast area , also it a nightmare climbing over bedding and other cleaning items that early in the morning in the path of each stair case !! It seemed a good deal at £217 for 4 nights near the blue mosque in istanbul after being reduced from over £400 ! Was not worth £200 never mind over £400 only thing i can say location was good and thats it :-((((((

Family Friendly Hotel in idea location
This hotel is in a great location with the blue mosque only 200m away and lots of great places to eat close by. The hotel is a bit dated, however the cleanliness, comfort and service were exceptional. I was travelling with a 7 month old baby, and they were flexible and accommodating in all our needs to make her stay comfortable. The hotel restaurant served amazing breakfast in roof terrace from whet the view was amazing and blue mosque, hagia Sofia and the sea clearly visible. If I were to return to Istanbul I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

Each member of the staff that we encountered were very friendly and accommodating. From the moment we walked into the hotel, very late at night, the guy at the front desk got us settled with Turkish tea while he handled the logistics. There is a WIDE spread for breakfast, served on the top floor. So, breakfast comes with a beautiful view of the city. The WiFi in our room was not super strong, but overall the whole experience at this hotel was fantastic. We would definitely stay again.

Decent hotel right next to Sultan Ahmet mosque.
The hotel was nice, very basic but clean. Breakfast was not all that but wasn’t terrible but we found it boring so didn’t bother with breakfast. The room was small but nice and clean, the shower and toilet was small, partner kept on banging his head on the shower rail. We could have a drink at the hotel bar till late at night which was good. The location was great, it was behind Sultan Ahmet Mosque and the tram line was very near. The only main thing I didn’t appreciate was on checking out, a bill was added to our room number for drinks that was drank in the afternoon, We always had drinks late at night when we got back to the hotel and we paid there and then as I didn’t want any confusion afters. Also we were never there in the afternoons, we would leave in the morning and not come back till in the evening and that’s when we had our drinks but paid for them that evening luckily the gentleman at the desk was the guy who served us every evening and was aware we did pay all the time. Our check out was 6.30am and he had to ring management about this added bill but he did defend us and said they always paid for what they drank and again I made a point that we were never at the hotel in the afternoon and told him to check the cameras but he said that’s fine that she made a mistake but this still annoyed myself and partner. The management should know what room guests are in as its not a big hotel so they should make sure they add the bill to the right rooms

Hospitality was great
Wont get a better location ... i stayed here for family while engagement party was taking place in istanbul. Rest assured the staff were incredible from helping us men iron all our suites, to sorting out the safe that had our gold trapped because id forgotten the code. They supported throughout our important stay . Highly recommended
