Being a small hotel, the service here is excellent, offering their guests a 24 hour bureau de change, a hotel doctor on call 24 hours a day if necessary and multilingual and helpful staff. For location, service and facilities we recommend this hotel. (JMG 08/08) The exterior of the hotel is very nice, tastefully covered in wood, in typical Ottoman tradition. This special category hotel is perfectly located for tourists in the area of Sultanhamet, just opposite St. Sophia, the famous Byzantine monument and very close to the Blue Mosque, one of the most impressive mosques in Istanbul. The Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace, historic Turkish Baths and several museums are within walking distance of the hotel.
