Pros-perfect location- directly off Cemberlitas tram stop, right next to grocery store, several restaurants. Helpful staff- got us a laundry service, maps, and serve tea, coffee, and beer right there. We stayed in a private room for 2- we had 2 beds, and it was very comfortable for the price. Bathroom was food. Cons: wifi only works in immediate check-in area, breakfast is typical Turkish, but not substantial. Elevator was broken.

N'a vraiment de cordial que le nom. Les prix sont chers même pour Istambul.
