Good Location, Good Price, Clean and Cute Hotel..
Pros: Friendly staff, very clean rooms, very cute colour combination in the rooms, superb breakfast area with Bosphorus bridge view. Cons: Washroom Door Knob was broken in my room, the lane leading to the hotel is closed in the daytime so if you are checking in or checking out during that time you will have to carry your bags all the way to the main road where your taxi is waiting (just a 2 min walk but if you have a lot of luggage on you then it becomes tiring)

It's good because location in Serkeci but not excellent due to the distance 500 meter from center and road to hotel is not easy especially for old people and the breakfast is poor . Other things are very good friendly staff , clean and big rooms .

8/10 Very good

Very friendly staff. Room was located in the basement and therefore had no window to outside. Basic furniture. Room was clean and had lot of space, but had not realy charme. A better light for reading in bed would have been nice. 5 minutes walking to tram station, 10 minutes walking to Hagia Sophia. Breakfast was OK. Highly recommendable to budget travellers. Best possible price-performance - unschlagbares Preis/Leistungs-Verhältnis :-). I would book it again.

Great location to everything. 10 Minute walking distance from city center, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and other museums . Walking distance to the Metro. Staff is wonderful. They help with other accommodations such as day trips and how to get to special attractions. Rooms were clean and well kept. Breakfast was very nice with a view of Istanbul's bay that will take your breath away.
