Reserved room was small, near WC, smells bad, not comfortable, staff says that hotel is full and it's no possible to change a room, so I cancel my reservation. Sorry, can't say any good worlds.


When we arrived at the Hotel they did not have the rooms available that we had pre-booked. The staff did sort it begrudgingly but I would recommend contacting the Hotel before arrival to ensure the rooms are available


DON`T STAY IN THIS HOTEL ! I made reservation and payment for two double rooms in February.When we arrived in September,they said that we haven`t reservation and payment.They offered us a terrible small room for 3 persons with extra bed,there was no place where to put it.Or in their other hostel 2 double rooms with shared bath.They offered to refund money,we agree,but not back the full amount of payment


never a goodmorning or goodevening from reception crew -- always the key was handed without any words ... bathroom 5th floor pretty shocking and hardly waterpressure especially when others are using water .. very hot and noisy also cleaning starts 8am on the 5th floor no more chance to sleep from then ...


I booked four single rooms at the hotel in March, but when we arrived they only had one room with four beds available. The rooms was so small that the feet of each bed were touching each other. The room was cramped and quite horrible; on top of this staff just treated us with contempt. So we found another place around the corner and left. DO NOT STAY HERE!


Perfect location, and very cheap.


Very good location for tourist (near 2 tramway stops and sigthseeng places in walking distance), but note- there is tran station, rails and boat station quite near (may be important for peoples with sensible ear). There were some problems with water - no possible to adjust the temperature of the shower, it changed all the time from hot to cold, so you can enjoy the contrast shower :)


i had a confirmed booking for this hotel and a week before our arrival they sent an email canceling our reservation without apologizing or mentioning anything at all about the 10% deposit. when i wrote back, asking for the deposit as the canselation was not our fault they simply didnt answer. we booked elswere and when we got to istanbul, went to claim our money. they tried to avoid it but finaly they gave us back some. but they were so unprofesional and rude... so watch out...
