Pleasant courteous staff, not consistently dependable. Perfect location for much of Istanbul's attractions. Paper-thin walls inhibit sleeping. Delicious and varied breakfast. Definitely recommended.

Wonderful experience!
We felt very welcome since arrival. The day was rainy and cold (January) and they offer us a hot tea a cozy apartment and all the practical information we needed during our stay. The breakfast was very good and all the employees very friendly. The building was very charming. Location is excellent! Walking distance to the main attraction of the old centre (Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Cisterna Basilica, Topkapki Palace, Galata Bridge). The only thing to be noticed is that is difficult to táxis to stop right in front of the hotel, due to a tramway line. But we drop off one block away and it was not a big deal at all. We suggest to buy trasportation card (rechargeable) in the front desk, in order to move around the city (by bus, metro, tramway and even ferryboat). Enjoy!

Budget Hotel on a Metro Track
Location is right on the Metro tracks and in the room way back you can hear the thunder like boom. Besides exactly at 10:00 AM jack hammer starts next to your window as a hotel is being constructed just behind it. The room is very Tiny and just a very tiny cubicle as a shower highly claustrophobic feeling. A TV the size of a laptop, the maid services the room daily fresh towels and bedsheets. The breakfast is standard no fried eggs or omelet and very Turkish an acquired taste. The staff Mr Fethullah is very helpful and will get you the best seats on the dinner cruise and whirling dervish only two bottle of water are provided on arrival rest on payment.
