It’s a three star hotel and that’s exactly what should be expected. It is conveniently located at walking distance from Blue Mosque and tram stops. Grand bazar is 15mins walk from here. It is located at downhill so walking to tourists attractions is always an uphill battle. Rooms are reasonable size and have basic necessities. We experienced an issue with hot water on first day but they fixed it swiftly. There is a very good gamma located right opposite the hotel. The hotel offers a pick and drop service from the airport if required.

Excellent location!! Right next to everything and great restaurants and stores. Abdul Kader and the other team members did a great job and very helpful. We enjoyed the 2 bedroom suite and it was good. I recommend this place especially if you want to avoid taxis and simply walk everywhere.
