                Good location with lovely bar overlooking the sea. Well positioned for the old town and main tourist sites.

                When we arrived they claimed we’d only booked single rooms, rather than the doubles stated on our paperwork. It took an hour of complaining before they finally found us the rooms we’d booked.

                It was in a very good location and the staff were very friendly and extremely helpul with every challenge we presented.It was a nicely designed hotel with some interesting touches.The illuminated headboards being a prime example.

                Despite being well designed the maintainance of the rear exterior paintwork was unfortunate.Also whilst a small balcony was a bonus the nearby residents houses we immediately overlooked could be off putting for some.Particularly the kitchen chimney opposite which belched out smoke time from time.Having said that it did connect us to the reality and ethnicity of Istanbul.

                Nice position and very nice hotel. Common terrace on the Bosphorus and private terrace on the Blue Mosque were awesome

              • Older travelers

                We loved our room, on the first floor old building with little balcony. Lovely views. Staff very friendly and pleasant. Good sound proofing with neighbours. Great terrace and good restaurant upstairs. Excellent breakfast.

                Tiny bathroom, we did not mind, but large people might. Trains very close and noisy at the rear ( where the best views are) so people should be told to take ear plugs as we did and were fine.

              • Family with children
                7.8

                Very helpful reception staff. Attentive to some minor requests I made. Very nice location for seeing major tourist sites.

                We were assigned a room on the ground floor with the sole view being that of an adjacent building that was decrepit and uninhabitable. "Hot" foods at breakfast were cold.

                8.2

                The freindliness and helpful nature of the staff. A very good breakfast and willingness to accommodate us in the type of room that suited our requirements

                Better air conditioning in the very hot month of August

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                Excellent location, delicious breakfast, polite stuff with professional attitude.

                The room was a bit too small.

              • Couple
                7.8

                Excellent staff - helped us with our airport transfer and provided breakfast at 3AM, good location, comfortable stay in great location.

                Smallish rooms, no lift for those who need it.

                Staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel was well locate next to main sites and restaurants. The hotel is nice and clean with a lovely breakfast room.

                The hotel is located close to a railway line which was a bit noisy especially when the balcony door is open. I'd advise people to bring their ear plugs. I had mine and managed to get a good sleep but without them I think it would have been a struggle. The breakfast is pretty average too. There isn't much choice with cereal, bread or fruit although what is there is well presented and fresh. The bathroom shower is very small but we had no tub. Rooms with tubs might have more elbow room.

                The location was brilliant.

                It's rather outdated, and small. I paid for one that is supposedly one of the better rooms, but it was still small. Whatever it lacks, it makes up for in location.

                Good location in city centre, helpful staff. Free shuttle service from the airport because I stayed at the hotel for a week.

                Great breakfast, nice rooms, fantastic location, friendly/helpful staff.

                Rooms are a bit small and in some it is almost impossible to use the batchroom. Also, the train runs behind the hotel so rooms in the back hear the train now and then.
