I love this place! The staff are so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble ! My room was large and comfortable and for the most part very quiet. On the Friday night I could hear music and laughter from a nearby bar but not enough to stop me sleeping. For breakfast there is a large selection of meats, salads, cereals, eggs and cheeses. I was able to fuel up adequately for a day of site seeing. The location is very convenient with The Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia close by. The tram stop is also close so other parts of the city are easily accessible. Highly recommended.
Pros: location (several minutes walk to the Blue Mosque); room & bathroom were clean, spacious & attractive; staff were friendly & obliging; enjoyable place to stay.
Cons: nothing that bothered me.
Special mention: hotel manager Selim Kuden is very helpful to all guests, but when I experienced a couple of problems he stepped in to help in ways that amazed me. Best service I’ve experienced from a hotel.
