This is a nice, smaller hotel with some 40 rooms (estimated), centrally located just off stiklal Caddesi, close to the British consulate-general and about eight minutes walking distance to Taksim square.

Bad Points
Hotel is small boutique...

General Comments
This is a nice, smaller hotel with some 40 rooms (estimated), centrally located just off stiklal Caddesi, close to the British consulate-general and about eight minutes walking distance to Taksim square.

My room was normally sized and had a double bed plus one single bed, a small desk, TV and locker. The bathroom had a shower but no bathtub. From my room, I had a wonderful view over the Golden Horn towards Sultanahmet, but I know that there are also smaller rooms that open towards small light wells, so it might be advisable to specifically request a room with a view, if that's important to you.

The hotel has a small gym with one treadmill, one stepper and one bench with a set of dumbbells. There is also a little hamam and you can get a massage (haven't tried either of them). The only detriment is that the gym is open only from 10 to 22 hours, which makes it difficult for business guests to workout in the morning.

Wifi internet access is provided for free in all rooms, but it was slow and did not work on several occasions.

Service was very friendly. One weird thing is that chambermaids rearranged my personal items when cleaning the rooms, such as putting papers and pens from the desk into a drawer or moving toilet articles in the bathroom. While I didn't find this particularly disturbing it is certainly something that most hotels would not allow, considering it an invasion of the guest's privacy.

Breakfast was OK, although strangely there was no jam, marmelade or honey, only a wide selection of cheese and sausages.
