                  10.0

                  The staff were amazingly helpful and the rooms spacious and beautiful

                  ground floor rooms too close to reception area and noisy early morning and late at night

                • Older travelers
                  8.8

                  The excellent staff, always helpful and friendly with good advice. Ece Acar at reception was especially pleasant and helpful. Proximity of hotel to main sights of the city.

                  Room we had on the lower ground floor had the worst view ever! Trains were a bit noisy.

                • Family with children
                  10.0

                  The rooms adjacent to the lobby were very bright, roomy and the decor, modern. Lots of hot water with great water pressure. Responsive room temperature control. (Important because Istanbul can get very cold). The charming and attentive staff, the cherry on top.

                  8.2

                  - Price/Quality rate. - Location - really just 5 minutes of slow walk to Sultanahmet square and Blue Mosque, about 7-10 min slow walk to Hagya Sofia. - Gorgeous views from King's room and breakfast terrace. - Spacious room & balcony with magnificent view of Marmara sea, Bosphorus and Golden Horn. - king-size bed and large (queen size) folding sofa with excellent mattresses. - tea set to boil water and take tea right in the room. Hotel offers different tea (black, green, olive, herbal) in pouches as a beau geste. The first thing a traveller can do upon checking-in is to make a refreshing tea and enjoy it sitting at the balcony. - very friendly and quick to respond personnel.

                  - Railway just under the hotel windows. - Hotel restaurant provides only breakfast. To have a 3 course-dinner one should go out which is not always comfortable, particularly after the long-day walking. - The transparent glass table with sharp angles in King's room. For people with weak sight it's a mere danger. My family members bumped into the angles a few times getting the bruises.

                  The location of the hotel, right in the heart of Sultanahmet, was excellent, while the view of the Blue Mosque and the Sea of Marmara from the rooftop terrace was superb. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the rooms were comfortable and clean.

                  Fantastic location, close to everything in the Historical Istanbul, and also next to a very nice little street full of romantic restaurants and bars. Very nice and comfortable big room.

                  Breakfast buffet was a bit poor. Not much variety and sometimes half empty by the time we got there. Hotel is located next to the railway, especially the Ocean rooms are on the railway side and can get very noisy. I would recommend to go for a room on the city side instead.

                  staff friendly and helpful. Rooms large and comfortable. Bowl of fruit in room a nice touch

                  I could not convince staff that the "hot" water was not in fact hot. Even when they felt the tepid water they denied it was not hot. This happened for three days.

                  The staff was super friendly - everywhere from check-in to breakfast.

                  We had a room just opposite the reception desk with a railroad track in our backyard. Not many trains but still a bit anoying...

                  Everything was absolutelly perfect. From the staff to the room. Location quiet.

                  Breakfast should be more diversificated.

                  The staff were warm and friendly and made me feel very much at home. Once I had met them I knew I would be able to get the most out of a short weekend stay in a city that I had never visited before.

                  There is a wonderful rooftop terrace, but it wasn't staffed in the evening - which i guess is because it was slightly out of season. But i would have enjoyed sitting on the terrace watching the sun set over the city.
