The location was it's number one asset.
It was trying to be a boutique hotel but didn't quite make it. Our room looked out onto a rubbish dump and the fixtures and fittings were poorly done.
Location is great but there are at least another 50 hotels around it most which are better. Thats where the positive ends
A very dirty place. Do not clean rooms. Do not pick up their dirty dishes. Came back one day to find someone else's feces floating in the flush. Rooms smell dingy like a wet dog. Possibly mold.
Brilliant location, helpful and friendly staff. Excellent views of the Blue Mosque from breakfast area. Not a lot of noise, nice view of Bosphorous from our room.
There are no lifts in this four story building and the narrow stairs would be difficult for some travellers - this was no problem for us but older or physically challenged travellers should take it into consideration.
I liked the convenience of the location and the view of the Sultan Ahmet mosque. There was only a tiny glimpse of the sea.
The traffic was routed on the street right in front of the hotel. There was a constant stream of busses and autos beginning early in the morning until late in the evening. The breakfast was not fresh unlike most Turkish breakfasts. The stairs were very narrow. The telephone did not work well and I was charged an exhorbitant fee for local phone calls.
Very friendly staff. Excellent location and beautiful view from the terrace. Room cleaned every day. Internet free of charge.
Bathroom very small.
Great location, amazingly friendly staff who could not do enough for me and my girlfriend. The deluxe room has great views and is very comfortable and represents good value. I would stay there again
