Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Hotel is very accessible to everything, stores, restaurant and the Galata Tower, and the Mosque. Also having a stove and washer in the room is a plus for an affordable price.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We booked the junior suit with Galata Tower view and it was splendid. Airy apartment with small Juliet balcony, very sunny, spacious bedroom, good size dining and living area, small kitchenette. This is the best location you can get, old town on a hill and within less then 5 min walk to the main shopping street yet in a quiet location with spectacular view. The reception is very helpful Murat, Erbil ( ordering take away food for us) polite and welcoming. As Covid restriction have changed in Turkey after our arrival (mid Dec) we had to self-isolate for 10 days ( as we traveled from the UK) but as we booked 3 weeks here this wasn’t an issue for us as we were recovering from cosmetic treatment and the hotel was very supportive, delivering us all essential to the door on daily basis. The Internet connection was good ( I used it for work),in front of the hotel there is a metro station ( we didn’t use metro) as walking distance everywhere and a picturesque square where many visitors come and seat on a stairs & enjoy the view. We would be very happy to come back.

4/5 Good

Disliked: Cleanliness
The only positive is the lication
Hotel's location was good, however the price was overrated for what they offer. Cleanliness was below average, bathroom has stains, lack of amenities only 1 small shower gel and shampoo for 2 people. Mattress and pillows were not comfortable at all. The desk legs were broken so beware. The breakfast was limited and on the last day we were offered frozen fruits and NOT fresh, very disappointing. 1st day breakfast was late by 30 minute for a fruit salad. Not to mention that we were refused accees to the rooftop restaurant without a booking, while the receptionist confirmed reservations are not required. Overall, if it is not the location, i wouldn't rate it good.
