    They have a rooftop terrace with a fantastic view of the water; also a nice back garden terrace for eating one's breakfast.

    The gaseous odour that came from the bathroom, probably because they use septic tanks.

    Hotel is very conveniently situated and at the same time in a quiet area. This hotel is superb - the staff are very friendly and helpful, rooms are comfortable and kept very clean. Breakfast fantastic. Definitely recommend and would return.

  • Older travelers

    The staff were very kind and helpful and the hotel (though it would be more appropriate to call it a bed and breakfast) was very nicely and tastefully decorated..

    The rooms are small by European standards and very small by North American standards. It''s on a busy and therefore noisy street, so sleep was often interupted.

    Natural materials, good place,

    small room, small tualet

  • Single

    Very friendly staff. Room is decirated very nice. When you live in this hotel you can really feel that you live at home.

    Breakfast could be more various but Istanbul isn't a city where you can feel hungry.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    In a good location, only 10 minutes from all the main sights in the old town and from tram stops; very clean hotel and staff are extremely helpful and friendly. I enjoyed the breakfasts! Represented great value for money.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    It is very hard to satisfy me regarding most hotel experiences, but I can honestly say that this little gem is the perfectly situated hotel for a visit to the electrifying city that Istanbul is! The Staff is extremely helpful and knowledgeable about sights to visit and the non touristy places to have a light meal or a typical Turkish Bath (Hammam). The family atmosphere certainly made us feel at home. Thanks for the memories. We are already planning our next trip there...

    Great location, 5 minutes walk to Topkapi Palace and Aya Sofia. Excellent service. Really good breakfast. The staff speaks English and is always there to help with information. Definitely recommended.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    easy to go to the tourist areas

    Juice for breakfast. It would be better if fresh juice is served, but it has been compensated with very delicious turkish tea.

  • Couple

    Nice staff, very good location but still very quiet, very nice garden, nice roof top terrace.

  • Single
    10.0

    I can only praise the staff and the management of the hotel for my successful stay and my first acquaintance with Turkish hospitality. Everything was dealt with immediately and according to my wishes, and the personnel gave me advise on how to enjoy Istanbul at its best (since I do not speak Turkish I appreciated a lot).
