            Clean rooms, nice friendly staff, quiet enviroment, breakfast at terrace with view over the sea of marmara and the bosphorus.

            Expected a bigger jacuzzi for 2 persons, but it was just for 1 person... ;-)

          • Couple
            10.0

            Highest recommendation! We (man+woman couple) stayed here for a week and it truly felt like a home. The room was great: nice bed, strong shower, effective air conditioning and cleaned well every day. We enjoyed the small touches like bathrobes and slippers, things you would not expect in a hotel so affordable. The location could hardly be better: close to all the major tourist sites one wants to see, but situated in a neighborhood of excellent evening entertainment as well. The bar is open all night long, so it's also a very good place for that last drink (and cig) before going to sleep. Finally, the best aspect is definitely the staff: the owner and personnel feel like very close friends, and we would come back here if only to see them again... which we will do most certainly!

          • Family with children
            9.6

            Everything was nice, I stayed for two nights at their one more buildings a hundred meter from this one and also great. Room was okay, clean and the staffs were very nice. The location is also happening and have a lot of places to access!

            No restaurant for buffet breakfast, need to go to another building's roof terrance.

          • Group of friends
            9.2

            This is an wonderful little hotel that has all of the things one wants (fantastic location, view from the breakfast room, good value for the money, very helpful staff, fast internet). The location is worth mentioning again -- just down the hill from the Blue Mosque in the quaint old section of Istanbul with lots of restaurants and very close to all of the top sights of the city.

            Nothing really -- perhaps slightly better directions for finding the place (which is quite easy once you have located it once).

          • Couple
            9.2

            The staff were very friendly and they are always doing their best to make you happy, also the breakfast in the hotel was ok ..

            We thought water bottles in rooms were free but they were not. But we were charged small amount !

          • Couple
            5.4

            Breakfast was in the another hotel (about 400 m far from it), there is no shampoo,tpoothbrush and toothpaste in, the price was too strange coz euros were converted to TL than back, in fact' it was ıncreased - 20 euros more per night.

          • Couple
            7.4

            Great location.

            Manager was abrupt when dealing with us.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            Easy an unformel staff that helped when ever it was needed

            A smell that was too strong. Like a cleaning product that was used to much and with too less water

          • Couple
            10.0

            The hotel is very good, absolutely value for money. The room was clean and nicely furnished. The location is perfect, no need to catch bus or tram, just go out and walk and see-sight. Area is quiet, staff is friendly.

            Breakfast could have been better, pancakes were left from the previous day. Still, the location of the breakfast was nice, the view was beautiful.

          • Couple
            6.2

            perfect location, in the area for visit of the Agia Sofia. relaxed atmosphere. Nice and good buffet in the morning.

            Bad smell in the Hall. Floated toilet. The normal name of the Hotel is Angels home..so confusing with Peripetie on Booked.net.It looks like the water bottle for making tea/coffee is included, but this it not.

          • Group of friends
            5.8

            location is very good

            the room is old fashion and bad smell

          • Group of friends
            7.0

            The hotel is walking distance to the main sights in Sultanhamet and located nearby a stretch of road which is filled with restaurants so finding food was convenient at all hours of the day.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Great location with fantastic staff. Good size room with nice sized bathroom. Breakfast was nice and the house cats made it just like home! Classic style Ottoman design building.

          • Couple
            8.8

            Most of all we like the location, then good staff, beautiful design of our luxe room, and sea view. It's very comfortable to have a kettle with free teabags, a bath robe and slippers in the room.

            No hot water in the tap in the basin (though there was hot water in the bath tap).

          • Family with children
            8.8

            The staff were extremely helpful, especially a tall, skinny, dark haired fellow in particular. He did not speak very good English, but he tried his best to help nonetheless, which meant a lot to me. If I went back to this hotel, it would be because of his friendliness.
