    Breakfast - typical Turkish cold buffett with a couple of hot items each morning Bottles of water, coffee and tea always available at no extra cost Bedding changed most days and towels changed everyday if required and rooms cleaned well each day Beds very comfy Aircon kept the room at a good temperature and at no extra charge Trams were only a 10 min walk away and very cheap to travel on

    There is a club close by, no fault of the hotels. One night was extremely noisy however, because i had requested a quiet room, once the window was shut I didn't find the noise too disturbing. Generally the area is full of steep hills but again no fault of the hotel Taxi's often found the hotel difficult to find which became less of a problem once i'd found my way around as were able to direct the taxi

    At first when I read negative comments about the location of hotel I wanted to cancel my reservation but I am thrilled that I didn't do that.The fact is that if it is your first time in Istanbul try not to find the location of hotel from Galata because it is kind of tricky in winding streets of Istanbul. The best way to get there is from Halic metro station which is in front of hotel s' Ave, there is a Pilaveci at the beginning of Ave.It only takes you 2minutes to get to your hotel.The surrounding neighborhood is commercial area so it is very safe at night however they close soon and it very quiet at night so you can sleep very well.Thank you so much Mr Galib,the manager of hotel, for your kindness and carrying my luggage and bags up to Halic metro, you made my travel unforgettable.The rooms are spacious and clean.I will definitely come back

    Everything was perfect

    An excellent location; a 7 minute walk from Karakoy Tramway and the Tunnel Station. The tramway goes to SultanAhmet, Serkici, and Grand Bazar. The Tunnel Station goes to Istiklal Street. So you are in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Istanbul. There are several local restaurants and grocery stores down the street. The guys at the front desk are cool, helpful, down to earth, and respectful. I stayed at the single room; It isn’t that big but TBH its not too bad for one person. It has a mini fridge, TV, bedside table, and a desk. The hotel gives off an industrial and vintage kinda vibe. It is clean, quiet, and safe. They have 24 hour front desk help. The only two problems I had were the size of the shower room. It was so tiny but clean, new, and has hot water all the time. But in their defense, I am 1.90 cm and weigh 115 kg. So if you are small or mid sized, you’re good. The second problem is that the bathroom has a sliding glass door overlooking the bed which was a bit odd and out of the ordinary to me personally. But truth be told, it looks modern and stylish. Other than that, everything, from room service/cleanliness, ambiance, safety, location, and customer service was very good.

    Very good location, where you can reach both sides of Haliç also by foot. Nice interior, friendly and helpful staff, all the needed basic things like hairdryer, coffee and tea all day long, breakfast included. For the price payed it was wonderful and totally worth it.

    There was no door In the bathroom, it was missing, but the reception was ready to change the room for us. Minor things - no shelf in the shower to put shower gel and shampoo, not enough hooks for towels, only one side table by a double bed, which made one person put things on the floor next to the bed. If the breakfast had a whole grain bread and a real bean coffee, it would be just perfect;) And just be prepared that if it’s rainy, all the city water comes down the slopes to the hotel location and you can’t go out! We went out and soaked and drowned till over knee height! Better wait inside:) As for the rest, the hotel is really nice and made us satisfied, and contributed to our enjoying Istanbul! Thank you!
