Quaint Hotel in a quite street, just 2 minutes away (walking) from the busy Sultan Ahmet Square , Hagia Sofia Mosque and the Blue Mosque. It was perfect for me from a location, Price, comfort, cleanliness and value point of view. And breakfast was included. Now the breakfast was not grand, but it is all that you need to start your day. Fuad at reception is great. The lovely lady responsible for the Breakfast is helpful and accommodating. They have a Terrace that is accessible. Decent view up there. Great place to have your coffee/ Tea and cigarette.

For the price this derserves 5 stars :) Clean, bright, quiet, decently seized room with a comfortable bed, decently seized bathroom, functional showerhead, bodywash and a hairdryer. The staff is super nice and it is a great location if you are looking to explore the main tourist attractions such as Hagia Sophia, the blue mosque, grand bazaar etc. All within 10 min of walking. They also have a rooftop terrace with a nice view over the Bosphorus and Beyoglu. The restaurants right outside the hotel such as Sultanahmet Fishhouse and Istanbul Kitchen are great too
