From the moment we booked and the hotel contacted us to provide a welcome and assistance with the transfer from the airport, until we checked out after 5 nights, everything was perfect! The Owner of the hotel was there to welcome us, and saw and he and his entire staff treated us like we were family, staying in there home. The breakfast was very nice each morning, with so many options, and the recommended “local” dinner spot was wonderful and authentic! We would definitely stay again, as the location was perfect.

We arrived long before check in and the staff quickly took our bags, checked us in and gave us tips and recommendations about the city while we waited. After a 15-hour flight, this kind of hospitality was most appreciated by guests. When we got back our bags were already in our great room. The bed was fine, the lighting was great and there was plenty of room for our stuff for three days. We had a huge breakfast each morning, It was included in the room rate We had a great time here. Every night we went up to the rooftop to have their lovely apple tea. Everything was very nice, but the customer service of the entire staff far exceeds even the highest expectations of the most demanding frequent traveler. I have recommended the hotel to several friends and I will definitely be returning soon. Thankyou!

Lovely hotel in the heart of Istanbul with the friendliest of staff. The location of this hotel was perfect for us as we were travelling with an elderly couple as well as a young child. In total we had 3 rooms for our party. All rooms were clean and spacious. We were able to explore all the iconic landmarks within 5-10minute walk. Mr Harun and his staff provided an impeccable service as soon as you walk through the doors. We were seated and offered fresh juice and Turkish delight which went down a treat with our daughter. Throughout our stay Mr Harun made us feel extremely welcome and ensured we were comfortable, it literally was a home away from home. The roof top terrace had an amazing view of Hagia Sofia and if you time your breakfast just as the sun rises you will have a great back drop for your breakfast photo. Whilst breakfast was good, there was the odd day where the eggs were cold, and I would have loved to have seen some more options on the breakfast buffets but I’m not a massive breakfast person so this was not an issue for me. (Oh and mugs, the tea cups were not sufficient for me, as a British tea lover I need a large mug of tea for breakfast, I literally had to make 3 trips to top up my tea every morning). Overall a great stay and I would definitely rebook when I’m next in Istanbul :)

From the moment you enter the hotel, Mr Harun and his team welcome you and tell you to feel at home. We were given all the details of what to expect and provided with freshly squeezed OJ to refresh us after the long journey. The hotel is located just a few steps from all the top attractions in Sultanahmet which was the primary reason I chose this hotel because I was traveling with my elderly parents, and the location did not disappoint. The breakfast was incredible as well with a huge spread and the best thing about it - the million dollar view of Istanbul and Hagia Sofia from the rooftop. We’ll definitely be back to our “home” in Istanbul!

We had a wonderful short stay at this nice hotel. We were welcomed with a little drink and a clear message that they would help us with anything we wanted. They even carried our bags to the tram station when we left. The hotel is in an excellent location, right in the heart of the old city.

This wonderful Boutique Hotel in the World is definitely something different. Its comfort certainly stands out among the various qualities: very central area, it is very easy to reach all the most important places in a few minutes' walk; varied and top quality breakfast, wonderful, peaceful terrace, very good shower which made us reborn even though it is little bit tiny ... I could continue listing all the objectivity of the place, but I prefer to give worthy note to the staff, all very courteous people who always welcomed and dismissed us with great sympathy, they really made us feel at home, always available in all respects, a greeting and a special thanks go to the manager Harun, extremely competent, professional and sweet. We absolutely hope to return!

I organized a 2-day trip for me and my friends and this Hotel met all our expectations: prime location in the heart of Old city, near the Haghia Sophia and tram stations. for those arriving by car, it can be little bit difficults since its a busy area. The rooms are frankly very good value for money. Clea and very well soundproofed. The staff is professional and welcoming. Breakfast on the terrace breakfast hall: quality products. Breakfast hall has a breathtaking view. You have understood that I recommend this place and I will come back to it personally!
