    We were very nervous about choosing a hotel in the Sultanamet. So pleased we chose this one. The room was smart and clean - refurbished 15 months ago. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I think I need to emphasize that point more - they were very in tune with what people want to see and do and give good recommendations. It is walking distance of most things you will want to see. The breakfast is basic but fine. Definitely wish to go back and spend more time located here.

    These are actually not complaints. You are in a old area of a large city. You hear the call to prayer in the morning. You hear a car pass or people making noise late at night if you have a street room. It will be no different in any other hotel in this area. If that is really going to ruin your trip then bring some earplugs. But it did not bother us in the least just noting that it can happen.

    I stayed with a friend and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. They told us to ring them if we needed any help when we were sightseeing & if they couldn't help us by phone they would be with us in a few minutes. This was re-assuring for 2 female tourists - luckily help was never needed but good to know we could call. They helped us with recommendations on where to go and what to do. I would say they go out of their way. We would definitely choose this hotel again and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Istanbul.

    Shower was not very powerful but it is such a minor thing when everything else was perfect

    The staff - Yusuf was very helpful, accomodating, and kind. Always had everything ready as promised. He made our trip/visit very enjoyable.

    The beds are uncomfortable - other than that - everything was great.

    Large rooms and good bathrooms. Comfortable and clean.

    Breakfast could be improved - in particular one would expect real coffee and not just instant Nescafé. Also one staff member not very commercial.

    A great little hotel, close to historic areas and restaurants. Friendly staff, great breakfast spread.

    Bed mattress a little hard.

    Noise insulation is quite poor On the ground floor the air is very humid

    Superb

    "Echo" at the desk and other staff made us feel welcome from the first. He acted as concierge and front desk,etc. Very nice and welcoming. Hotel nicely appointed and except for the traffic noise because of temporary construction it would have been very nice. Huge bathroom with full tub, nice breakfast with good variety and service.

    Could be a bit more soundproof from room to room and hall noise. Needs a trash container in the room in addition to the one in the bath. Good window /exterior door soundproofing.

    Location is outstanding close to all tourist attraction and within walking distance to the fishery market (10 minute walk). Hotel staffs were great Mr. Yousef, Mr. Akram, and Mr. Muhram provided great suggestions weather for dining, shopping or for sightseeing. However, Mr. Yousef has a great choice in restaurants definitely you should ask him. I would definitely come back and can’t wait till my next visit.

    I used the family room and for four people is a bit tight and not enough cabinet’s I had to use my luggage
