“Good location for good price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2010

Just 5 minutes walking from Gulhane park with Topkapi Palace and Archeologic Museum on it's territory, 8 minutes from Hagia Sophia, 10 minutes from Sultanahmet Mosque. Turn the corner to get the tram. Bunch of cafe and restaurants around (Pasazade restaurant is great, no pushy staff outside, calm Ottoman konak-styled place and tasty meal).
BUT. Take ear plugs or be ready to listen to water flowing in adjacent rooms, people on the stairs returning late at night and muezzins early in the morning (actually, you could not hide from muezzins in any room =). Rooms are small, but if you have no purpose to spend all your time in the room, it doesn't bothers alot. Warning: there are two rooms on each floor with windows facing not streets or rear yard but inner well, just peace of sky above, window of another looser opposite and stair-windows aside %) Watch the room you check in, we arrived late in the evening and found weird space outside too late to move. Great view from breakfast room was our compensation, we have seen Bosphorus and Golden Horn of bird's eye view in some distance.

Also watch your purses and other important things: two days before departing my friend left all the stuff from her bag on the bed and we went to have breakfast. We returned and realized that the room is already cleaned (strange as usually it was done after our leaving for all day long), and there was a shortage of 20 dollars in my friend's purse. She was sure she could not spare or lose it somewhere else as she counted it just yesterday evening. She decided not to talk to manager about the incident because of the further bore which did not worth our nerves and time.
Anyway you may expext everyday towels changing, cleaning and adding the soap, shampoo and toilet paper in time. Just don't be an unconcerned person and staying in this hotel will be a worth-while..

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2010

Stayed in this hotel for two nights just before Christmas 2009. It's in a perfect location in Istanbul and walking distance to sites like the Hagia Sofia, the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. There are also any number of good quality cafesand restaurants close by for lunch and dinner.

The hotel itself is clean, though the hotel lobby is perhaps the nicest part of the hotel. The rooms themselves are acceptable, though my husband and I were given a twin instead of the double we requested. This would have been fine, however we had a largely sleepless nights in any case due to pipes rattling throughout the night. Every time a toilet flushed or a room above or nearby had a shower, the water squealed through the walls and then resonated for some time after with constant dripping-type noises.

Was also disappointed with the breakfast. Both mornings we arrived at breakfast with 30 - 60 minutes to spare before the scheduled end time but were left with slim pickings.
