    The view from the top floor restaurant and balcony are wonderful.The hotel is comfortable and relaxing, and its location is excellent, quite, and with a taxi stand just across the street it is perfect for getting to the airport, or anyplace else, any hour of the day or night.

    There is no elevator, but the staff is helpful with bags at check-in, and out.

    A good central but quiate location and kind personel...

    Hotel itself has very nice odd design.Staff sounds skillful and polite and pay personal attentin to each guest.I like that hotel is small as I understood 20 rooms only - nice.Restaurant with romantic atmosphere and view that makes you lost in thoughts.It is clear that person who create a style and servise standarts of this hotel is creative personality.

    1.Staff doesn't have name tags and you do not know how call them. 2.One of teh waiters(tall curly guy) use upsalling technic too obsessive.

    An excellant value hotel in a very good location in the old city.I would recommend it to anyone going to Isatanbul and who wants to stay in a hotel that is good value for money.The staff are excellent. Very friendly and helpful. When we left the manager used his own car to get us to the airport. The centre was shut down because of a sporting event and the hotel took responsbility for ensuring we got to the airport.Not every hotel would do that.

    Hotel is close many sightseeing spots and restaurants. If you want to go to the bridge, you can easy to get the train. And when you eat breakfast on the rooftop, you can enjoy getting good view.

    When i took a shower, the quantitty of water was poor.

    Excellent location, just a short walk from Topkapi palace, Hagia Sofia etc. Breakfast room / restaurant has amazing view to the sea, a great way to start your morning! Rooms were small but tidy and decorated in a cozy, old-fashioned style.

    The walls are paper thin: Sounds from the adjacent room(s), corridor and outside (5 am prayer calls...) may be disturbing. Bring earplugs if your sleep is easily distracted! Also, after coming home we checked our receipts and found out that we were charged 10 eur extra for the room compared to what our booking stated. Not a big amount of money (and we didn't notice at first because it was in liras) but slightly annoying.

    Excellent location, close ot main tourist attractions and the tramline. Located on street with multiple restaurants providing extended choices of meals and socialising within walking distance from hotel

    In the heart of the most interesting part of an interesting city, this is great value, with a wonderful staff, perfect location, nice breakfast and a good, clean, tidy, well-maintained room. Considering how crazy the neighborhood is with cafes, restaurants, shops, and tour buses, this is a remarkably quiet oasis just a block or so from everything you could want. A 5 min walk to the tram stop if you want to go to other parts of the city. Very good breakfast every morning on the roof top overlooking the Bosphorous was a highlight of the trip. Mehmet and all the staff spoke good English and were lovely and helpful in every way. I look foward to returning.

    It was perfect for us, but you should know that it does not have an elevator so be prepared to walk up the spiral staircase to your room on the second or third floor and the breakfast room on the 4th floor. If my 91 yr old mother could do it, so can you! Also, if you are expecting a spacious room with arm chairs to lounge in, you will be dissappointed, this is a fine, clean utilitarian room in a dense city.

    Megara Palace was really worth of money! Safe, clean, refurbished, nice hotel really within walking distance to the old town sights: Top Kapi, Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, etc. Also a good restaurant street just round the hotel corner, however, the hotel has own rest., too. We, 50 year old people, spent there 7 nights on holiday, having good sleep. The staff was excellent, always (24/7). The view to the sea was fantastic when having good, Turkish style buffet breakfast at the restaurant which was upmost floor. Atmosphere and the decoration at hotel was cosy and relaxing. Everything worked well at the hotel. We recommend to everyone who looks for safe, peaceful, clean and cosy choice in Old Town of Istanbul; knowing that hotels usually do not fulfill these adjectives in Old Town. Thanks to all staff & owner of the hotel.

    Very helpful staff, excellent views from roof, good food in restaurant. Perfectly placed to visit the attractions. A very pleasant stay.

    Only one very small concern was that if we didn';t leave the window in our room open the room smelled a little bit of drains.

    I liked the breakfast area best. The view is amazing.

    I don't thing there was something I specifically didn't like. maybe the fact that the breakfast selection was not very wide.
