Great hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms had most of the required facilities (the fridge was not properly working though). The location is great for accessing everywhere in istanbul by skipping traffic via tram and ferry. Very close to multiple amazing Bazaars. The breakfast could be improved heavily as the options were quite limited and not that tasty. However the staff were so nice, helpful and provided anything that one needed that I would love to be back.

Great hotel with great employees who made our stay a very pleasant experience!|Hotel is located in a quiet small street, which is very important for sleeping and resting since the city is generaly crowded. Yet, it is located in a walking distance from Haiga Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi and also Eminonu for shopping. Very good connected to tram and ferry stations as well - 10 to 15 min walking.|Rooms are comfortable, clean and you have everything you need. Employees are really helpful and kind. They will help you with all your questions and they are very patient.|Special gratitude for girl Oumaima - excellent english, willingness to help and greet you any time. But also, all the best words for the rest of the employees as well. Thank you for everything 🌸|I would definintely stay in this hotel again.
