The reviews were excellent which attracted my attention. As others noted the location is great - a short walking distance to all of the major attractions. The superior room was very nice. The owner Harun however was extraordinary. He upgraded our room before we arrived, he had a welcome letter, candles and rose petals and a balloon to welcome us. And he also had a sixth sense about not only our needs but everyone else as well. For example, he intervened when he saw a couple about to take a taxi that would have surely overcharged them. The breakfast buffet was exceptional and the indoor/outdoor roof terrace made the breakfast even more special. We could see the water, Hagia Sophia and many other sites from the rooftop. His staff was also very kind and helpful as well. It is a small hotel with extraordinary service that is constantly and politely on offer.

A great boutique hotel to experience the most of Istanbul. Staff was great, and they really deserve a lot of credit, as they really have the spirit to receive well and do their best for all their guests. The presence and attention of Mr. Harun serves as an example of how to run a business. Service was perfect.|The room was nice, cozy, clean and the breakfast at the rooftop is a nice touch to start the day. Location is perfect, near major attractions and amazing restaurants.
