Good location, nice hotel, pleasent stay
great service,very friendly and helpfull hoteliers.loved the decoration and the architecture of the hotel.
Good location with lovely bar overlooking the sea. Well positioned for the old town and main tourist sites.
When we arrived they claimed we’d only booked single rooms, rather than the doubles stated on our paperwork. It took an hour of complaining before they finally found us the rooms we’d booked.
It was in a very good location and the staff were very friendly and extremely helpul with every challenge we presented.It was a nicely designed hotel with some interesting touches.The illuminated headboards being a prime example.
Despite being well designed the maintainance of the rear exterior paintwork was unfortunate.Also whilst a small balcony was a bonus the nearby residents houses we immediately overlooked could be off putting for some.Particularly the kitchen chimney opposite which belched out smoke time from time.Having said that it did connect us to the reality and ethnicity of Istanbul.
Nice position and very nice hotel. Common terrace on the Bosphorus and private terrace on the Blue Mosque were awesome
We loved our room, on the first floor old building with little balcony. Lovely views. Staff very friendly and pleasant. Good sound proofing with neighbours. Great terrace and good restaurant upstairs. Excellent breakfast.
Tiny bathroom, we did not mind, but large people might. Trains very close and noisy at the rear ( where the best views are) so people should be told to take ear plugs as we did and were fine.
Very helpful reception staff. Attentive to some minor requests I made. Very nice location for seeing major tourist sites.
We were assigned a room on the ground floor with the sole view being that of an adjacent building that was decrepit and uninhabitable. "Hot" foods at breakfast were cold.
The freindliness and helpful nature of the staff. A very good breakfast and willingness to accommodate us in the type of room that suited our requirements
Better air conditioning in the very hot month of August
Excellent location, delicious breakfast, polite stuff with professional attitude.
The room was a bit too small.
Excellent staff - helped us with our airport transfer and provided breakfast at 3AM, good location, comfortable stay in great location.
Smallish rooms, no lift for those who need it.
in a very convenient location for many major sights. staff friendly and helpful, excellent breakfast choice
rather close to railway line, so noisy trains, this was not mentioned
Staff were very friendly and helpful. Hotel was well locate next to main sites and restaurants. The hotel is nice and clean with a lovely breakfast room.
The hotel is located close to a railway line which was a bit noisy especially when the balcony door is open. I'd advise people to bring their ear plugs. I had mine and managed to get a good sleep but without them I think it would have been a struggle. The breakfast is pretty average too. There isn't much choice with cereal, bread or fruit although what is there is well presented and fresh. The bathroom shower is very small but we had no tub. Rooms with tubs might have more elbow room.
The front desk staff are very nice and friendly. The hotel location are perfect.
We booked a room king size bed and they give us a two twin beds. We are celebreating 15 years wedding.
The location was brilliant.
It's rather outdated, and small. I paid for one that is supposedly one of the better rooms, but it was still small. Whatever it lacks, it makes up for in location.
Good location in city centre, helpful staff. Free shuttle service from the airport because I stayed at the hotel for a week.
