The hotel is terrible... rooms are small, it's noisy and lacks any comfort.
Atentions. People there are very friendly
It was just one day. No comments. All OK
Good location right in the heart of the old part of Istanbul. Friendly and helpful staff.
Noisy lift and no window in the room.
It was very close to shopping facilities, grand bazzar, blue mosque and boating trips on the river.
TV and internet facilities were very poor, noise from the lift motor was very disturbing at times, breakfast was boring.
It's a very nice hotel, very good for it's price. Very convenient site to see all the sights. And there is very hospitable stuff.
Firstly, my rating is "7" (just to distance me from the "automatic rating" which apparently will be assigned on the basis of useless categories). Then, this probably is the most uninspiring and boring hotel I have ever stayed in Istanbul (the choice was based on best price in a very busy period). At the same time there is nothing particular to really complain about - the location is very convenient, there was even view from the room across the Golden Horn and breakfast adequate for the room price.
The hotel has been recently under renovation and is kept very clean. It has an excellent situation in the heart of the historic town. Some rooms have nice view on the bosphore and Galata tower. There is a terrass on the roof with nice panorama.
The WiFi was not accessible in our room and we had to go to the lobby to get on the net. The prices of rooms are increased for people making reservation trough booking.com. Next to the hotel there is a parking charging 3€/day while through Booking the hotel charges 8€/day. The hotel applied an exchange rate of 2.30TL/1€ while the rate of the day were 2.15TL/1€ which increased the total we have paid with 20€ for two nights stay.
The staff was really helpful and always friendly, the rooms were basic but relatively new and clean, the view from the rooftop terrace was superb, especially at night, breakfast was rather basic
multiple tries to sell you highly overpriced airport transfers (via email)
Very good service in the hotel, and location very near of main railway station makes it easy to go major places as Topkapi, Grand Bazaar etc.
Personel of the hotel was very kindness and gave attention and responsibility for every ask.
Hotel staff needs good dezigner and taste
