    Very friendly helpful staff, charming Hotel ideal location for visiting everything, mosques etc. breakfast was an excellent Turkish style meal, free tea coffee available all the time. The cost was ideal. do not use this hotel if you wish to sit indoors and expect to be entertained its a base to view the city. The name of the Hotel was very apt although at the time of the booking was unaware of the significance of the name Sultanahmet and its cultural meaning. If you travel to this Hotel you will not be able to thank the hotel staff enough

    Difficult to find, you will need to ask about location, due to time constraints had to use a taxi but the hotel is handily placed for the underground.

    Its location was perfect. 5 mins walk from the Blue mosque and the square. It had many grocery stores, restaurants n taxis available on the street at all times. The staff was very cooperative and always available at the reception. The breakfast was awesome with variety of food to choose from...Tea n coffee were available at all times. The rooms were very clean. N it was the cheapest hotel i found but its value for money was excellent. Will definately recommend it to family n friends

    The wi-fi needed to be refreshed after couple of hours and the mail order wouldnt work so we had to pay by cash on the last day.

    Within a ten minute walk to the Blue Mosque/Tram Station. Breakfast was decent.

    Room was the size of about a cardboard box. The bathroom was so tiny you could do everything you have to do in a bathroom by standing in one spot. The fire alarm went off on two different days at 7am in the morning for no apparent reason. The guy at the reception looked like he was being paid commission by just about everyone in Istanbul as he tried to hook us up for all sorts of rip-off deals, from carpets to city tours. The internet didn't work throughout our stay. The view was awful.

    Location is good, not far away from old city center and the owner of the hotel seemed to be quite obliging, he was ready to help any question. Bed was nice looking and I think new. Good working internet.

    Very small rooms, bathroom is also very small, just about 1,4*1,4 m, they don't have shower cabin or bathtub, just a hole in the floor, so after taking a shower everything is wet, and u can hardly do there smth else. It was really dirty inside the furniture and fridge. Quite noisy outside coz of cars, children and train. Breakfast is poor... They have just 10 rooms, but all the time there was not enough eggs for all the guests... I don't know why, but they don't answer by email...

    Proximity to Blue Mosque etc

    The drains in the bathroom smelt foul and stunk out the whole room. The shower wet the whole bathroom as it was not separated. It was very noisy as we could hear other guests coming and going, the staff talking all night and could hear the street noise. Another guest tried to enter our room stating he had been told the rooms had been changed. Relied on staff to allow us to enter the hotel from outside as they do not hear the doorbell. Tried to call the reception but also received no answer so we were stuck outside for longer than we should have been.

    the hotel is very close to the old city. You can visit everything without using bus or taxi.

    small room number 4, old bathroom furniture, only a hole in the middle in the shower, everything is wet after the shower, old damaged toilet seat and the door is damaged from the water, broken wall beside the door. Cups and plates were dirty and broken all day at the breaklfast. Room number 3 told the same, their room was smaller than ours. In the prospect of King Palace is a fake of the photo of the bathroom of a 4 star hotel. It's a shame we had the chance to get a 4 star hotel for the same price (some km more from the old city), but we decided to take this one, because we trusted in the positive comments.

    It was very friendly atmosphere I felt like I am visiting my friends. Breakfast was excellent, prepared very fresh in front of you. Ot is very good view of Marmara sea while you make your breakfast. It gives very nice feeling to start a day ( of course I dont know how is in winter :-))

    It is a new hotel that's why there were a few things to fix but as soon as I reorted they were fixed.
