“an excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2012

My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The staff was warm, kind, and very helpful. Our room was very clean and decorated nicely. The location was wonderful for an introduction to the city; being so close to the Blue Mosque & Aya Sofia was pretty amazing.

I stayed in Sebnem in cold Winter.
Unfortunately I couldn't see the Sun during my 3nights stay, but this hotel made me warm.
The room (single) is nice and cozy. There are many beautiful books like maps, the koran and Turkish history book with a beautiful ottoman lamp in the room.
Breakfast is also nice. I was surprised to see so many breads and cakes which were all tasty. The staff made the fresh orange juice for me. It was so good. I wanted more hot meal. It would be much better for eating breakfast in the terrace in Summer.
It's just a couple of minutes walk to Ayasofia and Sultanahmet Camii.
I recomend this this romantic hotel.

Nice little boutique hotel on a very quiet side street, but very close to attractions. About a five minute walk to the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. A long street of good restaurants is just around the corner. The staff were uniformly helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were substantial and home made. The pastries were all fresh, having been made that morning, and there was a good variety of food. The only down side was the very small bathroom. Would definitely stay here again. Very nice view of the Golden Horn.

Well within walking distance for most of the major sites and adjacent to a major eating area.
10 mins with a suitcase from the tram line and access to the airport [I'd suggest medium sized wheeled case would be many folks limit though].
Quiet site in cul de sac, friendly, competent staff.
Rooms small but perfectly adequate, comfortable beds, bathroom rather cramped but plumbing good with excellent shower.
Sea view from the roof terrace but the properties in between have seen better days.

Just 5 minutes from the Topkapi palace entrance, this B&B hotel was ideally placed. Plentiful help-yourself breakfast on the terrace, with views over the Bosphorus, to set you up for all the sight-seeing. Double room big enough but not huge, cleaned every day. Friendly and helpful staff and airport transfers arranged.
