The hotel is located in the best spot of the old town! The view of the room and also breakfast hall is stunning! Towards the Blue mosque, sea and all attractions! The reception is also perfect and helpful, but room was not good as much as we expected! The bathroom has not good smell and the water was not drain smoothly during shower.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Hotel is in a great location, just off the main road and very close to the Blue Mosque/Hagia Sophia. Service was excellent, wait staff and front desk staff were very attentive and friendly. Breakfast was also stellar, with a wide variety of options (including eggs and not just pastry’s). The view from the restaurant up top is stunning and definitely a must see. Although the rooms were clean and very modern, my only complaint would be that they are a tad on the small side. There was also a faint odour present in the bathroom, but it eventually subsided. All in all, I would absolutely recommend this hotel to friends and family, and definitely will come back if I’m in Istanbul again!
