A very cozy, centrally located hotel in the heart of the old historic district of Istanbul. Room was a bit small but the bed an AC were just fine. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They arranged airport transportation for us with no issues. Location is excellent, just minutes walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia. Grand Bazaar and public transport. Plenty of restaurants in the neighborhood and it's perfectly safe. Do not think about driving! Traffic is total gridlock. A great home base to a tourist adventure in Istanbul

(For the restaurant attached) 10 STARS. From start to finish. I’m staying at the other Antusa hotel location, who recommended me here when I asked for hookah. From the very beginning, service was outstanding. Very personalized, brought me a space heater (just for tiny me at a 4-top booth!) on a chilly night. I had an orange hookah, two delicious appetizers, a perfect entree, drinks of course… and at the end of service, additional above and beyond service gestures.. I can’t speak highly enough, I will be back!!
