First things first: all the staff was absolutely amazing ano they all went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and to meet our needs. The care for the guests is unmatched in my experience, and rest assured that the entire team will make their best effort for your stay to be the best you can get. The room was very, very clean and amenities were provided. We received complementary water every day (one 500ml bottle each), a plate of fruit on the day of the arrival and a bottle of red wine (so thoughtful!!) we had a small balcony in the room, a small fridge and wardrobe with hangers. The beds were super comfortable with double pillows, the room had air conditioning. The shower was super nice as well: spacious and with a powerful stream of hot water. The position of this hotel is ideal: 10minutes walking from all the main mosques and attractions, same distance for the tram line. Breakfast was served in a restaurant across the street and we received such great care in the restaurant as well. We got served mainly savoury food (I suppose that's the traditional Turkish breakfast) but fresh pancakes and muffins which were really appreciated. I couldn't recommend this hotel more and when I will be back in Istanbul for sure I will book a room again. Personally was not a cons, but the room is small. The building is an older historical building therefore there's not much space to begin with. I have seen people complain at the reception but hey you stay in the hotel just to sleep! Also not very soundproof.

I came for the spa and Hamam treatment. It was definitely worth every penny. The space is clean, communication clear. I felt safe and taken care of, from front staff to the ladies that performed the treatments. I chose the VIP program. My masseuse was Dolma. Her massage was very good. We communicated a couple of times to adjust the pressure, and she did with ease. My experience was very positive. Will do again if I’m in Istanbul again. CS Boston, MA USA
