Reviewed 23 August 2013

the hotel is situated right next to Chora Museum, in the Fatih district. this is a very nice neighborhood, with nice views over the Golden Horn.
it's an old wooden building, as most of the buildings in this area, very shiny, especially the part overlooking the Golden Horn. the rooms needs to be renovated, but keeping the old style which gives it the charm.
I liked the breakfast and the garden where it was served and the people at the reception who were very kind.

Room Tip: they also have a separate building where the rooms are not very nice. please be sure to specify you...

Nice quiet calm hotel, far well from downtown. Old room equipment. friendly staff. Good and tasty breakfast.Wood windows is sharming, Simple old furniture also. Small artisan market near by. Metro stop is 1 km by foot of light promenade, than after 2 stops change to tram and about 10 stops to town center.

Situated near to the tram station, this traditional hotel is very nice indeed. Personel is friendly and there is a gourmet restaurant (Asitane) with beautiful, tasty, but small plates.
Just across the street is a kebab-restaurant with delicious traditional food.

THE WORSE HOTEL EVER !! I spent some nights there, and was the worse experience ever.
Dont misunderstand my negative comment, really, im not a bad person trying, i always try to help, but this... really wow... is the first time i make this kind of negative comment on something.
1. REALLY REALLY DIRTY
2. Its an old hotel, i can understand that, but DIRTY...?? and i mean, really Dirty, i got allergy and was sick during my time in istanbul.
3. The beds were really old and with holes.
4. when i got a shower water was yelow, can you imagine have a shower waching that the floor is Rusty, and then see that you are showering with yelow water??? really discusting !!
5. The price is not even reasonable, up to 60Euros
6. But the worse really was the service.
When i came to the desk to say that Yellow water was in the Shower, they told me (with any concert) "Is not our trouble, the internal pipes are rusty" !! and then when i said about the dirty the room was, they called a old lady, very humble, when i saw her face my heart just died, and they started to scream at her ! i just tryed to stop the situation saying that "no problem, every thing its ok" trying to divert the attention, for not provocate the stupid manager to fire the poor lady.
Every thing was really bad, the service, the manager, the dirt... BUT The way the manager screamed to the poor lady was the worse thing you can see in some human, one just dont do that !! The worse experience ever !
I Guaranty that this opinion is not false !

Room Tip: Simplemente busquen otro hotel y paguen taxi si quieren ver el museo Kariye ! Just look for anothe...

This hotel is value for money! we booked a room through the booking.com and it was twice cheaper than in the hotel. Though the rooms are not perfect, it`s clean, the staff is very friendly and always ready to help. And the location of the hotel is perfect: it`s in the old part of Istanbul, which is very beautiful and all the attractions are located in this part. Besides, you can buy everything here much cheaper and to eat cheaper ( around 10 TL for two person!).
