“Most rooms at front so noise from road and mosque at prayer times. Bring earplugs! Rooms on fourth floor seem a good bet.”
 of 5 bubbles shezma, 6 May 2015 | Read review
“on higher floors there is better view on bospor and blue mosque”

“all the rooms are same and new, perhaps west side rooms are more quiet coz of the near by building activities ...no elevator so choose lower floor if you can't climb....”
