    We absolutely loved the staff at the hotel, they were all so welcoming. The hotel is in very close proximity to landmarks and very good restaurants and so we never had to worry about transport as we could get everywhere by foot. The hotel also has a very good cafe which does excellent shisha. We intend to visit Istanbul Again and couldn’t think about staying at any other hotel.

    The location is perfect, close to restaurants and 2 min walking to Hagia Sophia / blue mosque. The facilities are a bit of a let down. The room was very small, the washroom needs updating and again was not meant for 4 people. Staff was nice and accommodating. Overall a decent stay but wouldn’t consider it a 5 star

    Convenient location

    I’d rate this more of a 3.5 but customer service improved as our stay continued. We just had an annoying initial check in and start with the front desk. When we reserved a room at the sura Hagia Sophia on Hotels.com, the reservation said we would have a room overlooking the garden. When we arrived our room was overlooking a green lot with zero view, had no full length mirror which I found odd and a too dim light In the bathroom. The photos on the Hotels.com page for the economy rooms are a closer match to what we received. Had I known this was what we were going to receive we would’ve just booked the cheaper economy room. Even In the hotel booklet it mentions the superior room having specific views, “our superior rooms welcome you with City, garden or pool views. The only thing for you to do is to state which view you would like to have in the morning.” Quite A bit misleading in my opinion. We dealt with both the daytime and nighttime front desk and honestly both could’ve improved their customer interaction regarding our room and check in. As our stay continued our interaction with everyone else was great. The people at the spa were amazing and the people at the breakfast buffet were fantastic as well. Don’t miss the breakfast buffet! Overall it had a great location close to the mosques and general sightseeing. If you are in Istanbul for a short stay and have only a few days It May be worth it. Just check your rooms and make sure it’s exactly what you paid For.

    I loved my stay a this hote. Even with a little booking problem, which was my fault, the service did everything to help us make our stay special.. Especially Miss Halima, she was so thoughtful and we felt really welcomed with her. My next istanbul visit is for sure at this hotel, not only for the hotel because i just slept there, but because of this manager Halima, which helped us with every request. I‘ve got one more big plus: the breakfast.. there is so much different kind of food there, and its very good. I‘ll recommend the hotel, because of the staff.
