Excellent in any way!”

If I am ever back to Istanbul, this is the place I would like to stay in again! The location is excellent, close to all the historic places, 5 minutes walking to Aya Sofia, the same distance to get to reach the Galata Bridge to get to Karakoy. The street the hotel is situated on is full of attractions and is very good to stay and walk by. A lot of restaurants, stores, bakeries, cafes, coffee shops, all you want and need is around this hotel. The room was great, clean and had everything needed for a comfortable stay. Delicious breakfast every morning! The Red River Pub downstairs is the place to go to and enjoy! And the most valuable asset of this hotel is its staff! Helpful, caring and always responsive. Yunis and Yagmur, you are the best! The morning buffet guys and ladies, the restaurant waiters are very nice and friendly. Thank you, guys, for your hospitality and all your efforts to make my stay unforgettable!

Very helpful staff. I lost my phone in the taxi and the hotel manager helped me find it, though it's not really in his job description. Hotel itself is also clean, hot water is really hot, the internet is fast and the location is great

Perfect! ”

It was a great stay. Hotel was very clean and staff was very helpful. Breakfast was nice and simple. They even upgraded our room without any additional charges, since we were a family. Only drawback is that hotel entrance does not have the access to taxis because there's a tram track in front of it. But location was perfect. Just next to Gulhane Station. Totally recommended 👍🏻

1 tram stop away from the airport bus. walking distance from the tram stop and walking distance from the harbour. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is the generic Turkish breakfast. You might have to bring your own luggage to the luggage room if you're leaving the luggage with them. There's a small flight of stairs after taking the lift up, so take note of that. When you book a taxi through them, get them to write you note or something confirming the amount that the taxi driver agreed on with them. So, if the taxi driver tries to rip you off, you can show them the note.
