    Pleasant courteous staff, not consistently dependable. Perfect location for much of Istanbul's attractions. Paper-thin walls inhibit sleeping. Delicious and varied breakfast. Definitely recommended.

    Wonderful experience!

    We felt very welcome since arrival. The day was rainy and cold (January) and they offer us a hot tea a cozy apartment and all the practical information we needed during our stay. The breakfast was very good and all the employees very friendly. The building was very charming. Location is excellent! Walking distance to the main attraction of the old centre (Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Cisterna Basilica, Topkapki Palace, Galata Bridge). The only thing to be noticed is that is difficult to táxis to stop right in front of the hotel, due to a tramway line. But we drop off one block away and it was not a big deal at all. We suggest to buy trasportation card (rechargeable) in the front desk, in order to move around the city (by bus, metro, tramway and even ferryboat). Enjoy!

    After check in, I refused helping of hotel employee to go to my room. So, my room key (security-card-type) did not work by the operation of reception. And it was happened once more. And at night, next doors of my room were very noisy.
