Great hospitality. The hotel`s staff was always helpful and kind. We had the Dolmabahce Suite which we warmly reccomend since the room enjoys a spectacular view over the Marmara sea. The hotel is located in the Sultanahmet area and nearby some key attractions of Istanbul (i.e. Topkapi). All in all very good value for money.
Location. Nice view from room.
The first night booked the room was unavailable so I got changed to another hotel.
The hotel manager (Erdal) was highly professional and eager to make our experience as valuable as it could be, even if it meant suggesting improvements in our travel arangements to other cities. After two weeks in Turkey, his honesty and eagerness to help impressed me most.
The rooms oare really small, so don't stay there if you plan to spend much time in your room. However, they are comfortable, and we did not go to Istanbul to stay in our hotel rooms. The service was excellent, and the breakfasts were wonderful.
fantastic view out of the window, the beautyful room and furniture and the terrace breakfast-room
The hotel is well located in the historical area of the city. The manager was a very pleasant young chap who was both helpful and keen to ensure our stay was a comfortable one. ( He works too many hours poor guy), There is a good view from the rooftop terrace/breakfast area of the blue mosque and the entrance of the Bospheros.
Our hotel room was very small. The internal decoration is in a very tired condition. The bedspread and curtains need cleaning. The room very dusty. The bed hard. The door locks were stiff. The door frame is loose. There is a lack of cupboard space, the lighting was dim. The hotel is in need of internal redecoration and a freshen up.
very friendly staff, great view from the balcony and roof terrace, great location to start your trip
room was very small
The staff was very helpful and got us a cheap transfer to and from the airport with suggestions to local restaurants
Great location with staff who go out of their way to make your stay the best possible: they really helped us find our feet in Istanbul. Good views of the blue mosque from a relaxed roof-terrace. Special thanks to Yilmaz on front office
Pros: Very rich equipement for such type of hotels; nice view from terrace on the roof and from balkony in the room, cozy location, silence during whole night and day, excellent staff, fast services, brilliant cleanliness.
Contras: very little rooms - no place to put bags; there is fish restorant near the hotel, so when you sit on the balkony in evening you have to smell a fish (however when you close the window, there is no smell in the room).
