Service was phenomenal! Was our first time in Istanbul and I was so pleased we chose this hotel. Location is close to the main historical sites. Front desk was very helpful with awesome recommendations and answering our questions. The room was small and clean. We did choose the economy room, hence it's size. Breakfast was great with a lot of selection. Would definitely stay again.

All the reviews here are spot on! The staff were nothing short of exceptional, no ask was too much. The first day we were here; there was heavy rain and as we were leaving they immediately offered us an umbrella. Truly wonderful people who are always happy to help. During breakfast, they have a lady who makes flatbread in a traditional method and that is definitely the highlight of breakfast. There's a huge variety of the breakfast with new selections each day. The lady who serves there is so helpful. I have a dairy intolerance and she would always make me a coffee with coconut milk. I mistakenly booked a double instead of a twin room but they fixed it straight away for us. Always there to greet us and see us off. The hotel is literally minutes away from the blue mosque which we were lucky to visit early morning when it was empty (a must if you stay here!) Although the terrace restaurant was closed due to weather conditions, its open to hotel customers and the view is just breathtaking! This is my third time visiting Istanbul and I can honestly say this has been the best overall hotel!
