    Fabulous

    Fantastic location, and beautiful views from the roof terrace at breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful. Rooms are small and old- fashioned but this is really par for the course in Sultanahmet.

    Superb

    We really appreciated the position, in the heart of Sultanahmet, the cleanliness of the rooms and the politeness of the staff. The ratio quality/money paid has been very high in this case.

  • 7.0
    Very good

    Location was just perfect and rooms pretty decent. A good value for the money.

    Some taxi drivers don't know this hotel, and many taxi drivers in Istanbul don't speak English so always carry a map with you.

    Very good

    The location was amazing we walked to almost every place because it was so near didnt use the taxi much! Area was happening and peaceful at the sametime.

    The rooms were a bit small and the bathrooms were very small

    Optimal position, terrace with view on the Blue Mosquee, very kind staff. Free internet access

    Fabulous

    The hotel staff were very kind and helpful. The best thing in the hotel is the breakfast view on 4th floor and when you get outside the hotel, as you can get a taxi very easy.

    Very good

    It is Clean, Sultanahmet, the blue mosque is a beauthiful view and great point of reference, near some charming área.

    Avoid room 101 at all costs. Probably column 01. I saw rooms 01; 02; and 03. The best is 03, bathroom where door open 190+ degrees and room for two beds and two begs. The room is clean and breakfast honest. I heard they give you the transfer from airport for free when you book with them, at their own site.

    Guest rating

    Excellent location and great view of the Blue Mosque. Breakfast was pretty good.

    Bed felt damp during the first night. Shower was not separated at all from the rest of the bathroom, so the entire bathroom was soaked after a shower and wasn't really ever dry. You had to sit sideways on the toilet. The staff at the front door were not too welcoming and were asleep later at night and early in the morning.

  • 6.6
    Good

    Friendlessness of the staff, cleanness of the rooms.

    the rooms are way small, it was very deceiving pictures on the web site, the breakfast menu is way less than minimal,

    You cannot beat the location and the view from the breakfast room. Everyone was eager to help us during our stay.

    The rooms were clean, service was good( friendly and helpful staff). Location was very good, but next time I visit Istanbul, I will prefer accommodation in Beyoglu instead of Sultanhamet.

    Lots of mosquitos, the ac was making a weird noise & I don't recommend the breakfast( very bad coffee, the food could be much better)
