I had really bad experience with them . I had done the booking through . When i reached hotel at 11 pm with 8 years old kid they said my booking has been cancelled . I would never recommend them at all . The only good they had was their location .

The property and the rooms are amazing. The only problem was that the room I selected was advertised as having a king bed while it was not.

10/10 Exceptional

I was pleasantly surprised to see how amazingly charming this hotel was. Of all my stays in throughout Turkey, I enjoyed their breakfast the most. Hotel receptionist, Berat, really went above and beyond to help me with my accommodations and getting a taxi for my next hotel. He was so very kind upon my check-in as well and gave useful advice for staying in Istanbul. Room was very cool, hotel itself was eclectic and tastefully designed, and the cappuccino in the breakfast room was one of the best I've had ever. I wanted to extend my stay, but they were fully booked unfortunately. I think the price was very reasonable and hope to stay here in future trips to Istanbul.
