    PROS: - Staff was friendly and helpful - Room was clean and hotel was well kept - Located in a quiet neighborhood, about 7 minute walk to main sights like Blue Mosque - Since we were leaving very early in AM, they made us sandwiches and wrapped them up for us to eat at the airport. I thought that was really nice of them - check in and out was really simple and stress free. even reserved a taxi for us on our departure day early in the AM

    CONS: - Would have liked to leave our luggage in a secure room or lockers instead of leaving them on the floor in the reception room

    Obviously an old merchants house that has been developed into a comfortable boutique style hotel that manages to offer good old fashioned value for money without trying to go too far upmarket. The location is excellent being a short walk from all the sights which means it’s quite feasible to go out in the morning, come back early in the afternoon and back out again for the rest of the afternoon without eating into your sightseeing time. The proprietor and staff are very welcoming and go out of their way to make sure you see everything you want to.

    Provided you are not expecting 5* accommodation you won’t be disappointed.

    The room was decorated very nicely and had a little balcony. We arrived early and the staff gave us a spare room to use, couldn’t have been more helpful. Breakfast was very good, as was the location.

    The hot water was a bit irregular.

    Selim at the reception was super helpful. Drew up directions on a map for places of interest, suggested good food joints, gave estimates of curio prices. Breakfast spread was regal, to be short. Room was cleaned every day and towels changed diligently.

    Except the fact that we checked in to the basement room (not their fault, we wanted early check in and those were the ones available) and it did not have a street window, just a bay window which opens to the underground courtyard,everything else was perfect.

    The staff! Very nice and helpful, not “too much” as other turkish places. Location was superb. Room service always taking care the room is sparkling clean

    I don’t know maybe it’s just our room but the bathroom was a bit annoying since the shower pressure and warm water flow was unpredictable. It didn’t matter for my husband :D it did matter to me so maybe I’m just asking too much
