8/10 Very good

Good stay.
Staff very helpful. Clean rooms, kind of dated but for the price, good enough. Walking distance to all points of interest in the old city. In front of tram tracks. In between tram station gulhane and sultanahmet. About 45 mins taxi/ shuttle to/from IST airport.

Verified Orbitz guest review

8/10 Very good

Pros: Very good location, between 2 tram stations and only few meters to the famous area of Sultanahmet with its all attractions including Ayasophia and Gulhana park. The hotel entrance is on the main street on Sultanahmet (flat ground - that matters if you're travelling with elders) Ibrahim at the reception, was very kind to change our room to the 1st floor instead of 2nd (even though the only available room was bigger than what I booked), only to assist my mother who has a knee issues, while there's no elevator in the building. Cons: - Walls are not soundproof, you can hear everything from other rooms, and there's no sign of "Quit hours", we had hard time listening to noisy songs from the next room at 2am. - No elevator. - No water boiler (electric kettle) in the room, if you want to make yourself a cup of coffee, then you have to go down the stairs to hotel dining room. - Only 2 power outlet in the room, one of them is not near the bed.

Perfect location
Best location you can imagine in the old city. Just a few minutes from Hagia Sofia and Basilica cistern. Tramway very close. Good breakfast. Don't expect a fancy hotel but price is reasonable for what you get. Good for a short stay.Friendly staff.
