Location, Location, Location!!
This is a cozy little place located very close to the main attractions in Istanbul. The place was very clean and appears to be newly renovated with the latest amenities. You get a taste of local food with an excellent buffet-style breakfast. The staff was very friendly. Musa will help you find answers to all your questions regarding the areas. You can never get lost with his detailed directions with descriptions of landmarks to get somewhere.

Лучший отель Стамбула
Все было просто замечательно, мы чувствовали себя как дома! Переселили нас в номер классом выше) Гульнора, Ибрагим и главный менеджер (не помню имени, увы) - очень помогали во всем. В номерах чисто, удобные мягкие матрасы, комфортные подушки и одеяла. Нулевая сантехника, очень красивый санузел, современная мебель в номере. Все даже лучше, чем на фото. Есть лифт. В номере сейф, шкаф, полотенца и фен. Есть косметика для душа, шапочка. Шумоизоляция отличная, очень тихо, шум с улицы не слышен. По утрам в мечети по соседству зовут на молитву, но у "нашего муллы" был такой красивый соловьиный голос, что это даже не мешало)) В Султанахмете мечети на каждом повороте, так что этого соседства вам не избежать)) Ребята, спасибо за все вам, за уют, комфорт, чистоту, за сладости и выпечку и вкусный чай, за заботу, в следующий раз только к вам!
