                  The location of the Hotel is perfect.

                  The noise from what seemed to be the renovation in some parts of the hotel.

                • Family with children
                  6.2

                  Very good Hotel to visit Istanbul, but as all the other international Hotels in this town, the price is not in relation to the medium loan of the average people living there. The breakfast is very good. Excellent. Also good for families with children. But hte rooms are a bit small. The price for coffee and drinks are too high.

                • Family with children
                  7.0

                  Perfect location (view! -we saw dolphins playing in the see), nice little hotel made for city tours. I would very much like to compliment the reception desk staff: when it turned out that the triple room is really not enough to accommodate 2 adults, 2 children, the receptionist was proffessional and forthcoming enough to upgrade us to a suit. Excellent!

                  Rooms are very small - should be known in advance so a guest is not negativelly surprised. Other than that - good value for the price!

                  Hotel's location was excellent, very close to historical centre wih lovely view of the bosporus.Hotel staff was polite and helpful and the manager's response in resolving an issue that arised during my stay was fast, adequate and extremely customer-friendly.Congratulations to the management for the professional attitude and the customer oriented approach.

                  Cleaning was of acceptable standard but not thorough, Parking capacity was limited to a few spots, breakfast was satisfactory but could include more options given the listed room price and hotel category.

                  The good breakfast and the nice restaurant area.

                  The room size is too small to enjoy a comfortable stay.

                  The location of the hotel was fantastic, it was just beside Marmara sea, with fantastic sea view from the hotel. Though the outlook of the hotel was not so much fancy, the rooms were very good, quite spacious, the furniture were very nice and comfortable, and the room was totally cleaned. The communication system is also awesome, with Blue Mosque and others in walking distance, the Tram and Train station as well which enable you to go to any part of the city very easily and cheaply.

                  The outlook could be little more fancy. Also if the Hotel Loby can be extended, it would be very nice. The sea-side cafe is awesome and can be used for relaxation though.

                  location

                  rooms are small, but fine for citytrip if you don't spend much time in the room

                  Nice view of Marmara sea. Great breakfast spread and good coffee. Friendly and helpful staff.

                  Location is OK but it is a good ten minute uphill walk to the old city. Not particularly far but all up some steep hills and old cobblestone streets. All of the hotels in turkey seem to quote rooms in Euros but when you pay they are unable to give change in Euros so have the correct amount or you will end up getting Turkish lira back at an unfavorable exchange rate.

                  Very convenient location. In front of the sea. Very kind personnel offered us services like booking in restaurants, taxis, events.

                  Close to the main road. Little noizy if you open the window.
