Writing to warn all potential Istanbul visitors and just hope I will help someone to avoid the mistake we did - do not book this hotel.
Be aware that the rooms are extremely small (even for a budget place), dirty, old and smelly. The window in the room was “facing” some brick well with a spiral staircase in it. The toilet and shower is a small cabinet, there is no a separate shower cabin, so when taking the shower the water is all around. There was a hole in the ceiling right on top.
There is a terrace with a nice view – it is true, however for this part of Istanbul, this is quite a common thing – majority of the hotels around here have a terrace. The breakfast was awful, comparing to other Istanbul hotels – just unacceptable.
I do realise that there are different levels of hotels and one should not expect 5 stars amenities for the price of 60-70 Euro, but honestly, you can find better for this price.
Do not stay here – you will regret and your holidays will be spoiled. There are lots of other good budget hotels with great service in Sultanahmet area.
