  • Group of friends

    The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful

    This is more like a hostel than a hotel. Rooms are very basic and quite shabby. There is no lift and the breakfast terrace is on the 4th floor. The stairs are shallow and winding.

  • Single
    3.8

    I liked nothing at all

    All linen was dirty and there was terrible smell in the room

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The hotel is really value for money. Location is good - close to most major sightseeing musts and also to places to eat. Tram station is near. Personnel is flexible considering length of stay (delay check-out for several hours).

    Some rooms are small and smell not very well

  • Couple
    7.0

    Nice personal staff, Good location, Parking place

    Paying in advance, Small rooms, Not very clean rooms, No hot water (as I understand in the other rooms there were, but in mine, there weren't), Furniture need renovation

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    Every thing was very bad, and doesn't worth even 10% fromitis price

  • Couple
    6.6

    Location of the hotel is excellent . The staff is very friendly and helpful. The room is clean and warm but not very comfortable.

    The bathroom is very very small and looks dirty. Breakfast terrace was without heating. Very noisy-all can be heard from adjacent rooms. This is more hostel or a hotel with two stars.

  • Couple
    8.2

    I liked the location of the hotel a lot. Someone could go quite easy to everywhere from there. Also the room was clean enough and the breakfast was quite alright.It s worth the money u pay.

    The only thing i didnt like so much was the bathroom which was small and not that comfy but i guess thats not a big problem.

  • Couple
    5.8

    The location was outstanding. Very close to Blue mosque, topcacki palace and haji sophia

    Dirty, meager breakfast, noisy

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Very good location of the hotel, frendly staff and easy acces to internet (we did not care our own computer during our back packpacker trip). We will recommend this hotel for people who like to be close to live City with limited budget.

  • Couple
    8.2

    The hotel is good for that money we paid. Nice view on terrace, pleasant owners, excellent location, has wi-fi. If you are interesting in Istanbul life and spend only night in the hotel - this is for you.

    Breakfast could be more various. Too small room and no wardrobe - but as far as I understood it is normal for the hotels of such type.

  • Single
