                        If you want to book a room using the phone, do not trust the reception. Ask for a written approval and a reservation number. You may either assumed to be non-booked or suggested to stay in a higher priced room.

                        The staff and the owner were lovely people. Very friendly and very accomodating and helpful. Location is perfect.

                        The Hotel was €200 per night and was not worth the money. Other hotels just as good are closer to 100 a night. The breakfast was not good and had run out of nearly everything buy 9.30 including coffee.

                        Location is great: all sightseeings within walking distance. Rooms are OK. Staff is extremely nice, but they know about hotel reviews on Internet and ask you to give them a good review.

                        You will get no sleep in Istanbul. It's not the hotel's fault, but there are big speakers right in front of it. At 4.45 am every night there were very loud calls for prayers from the nearby mosques. Every hotel in the old town will have this problem. Also the traffic is loud. The curtains did not close, so light came in every morning 6.00 am.
