Budget Hotel at Sultanehmet Dec 11, 2015
We booked this hotel a couple months before we depart so we have a very good deal on price.

This hotel located at the quiet end of Sultanehmet and close to the famous Hagia Sophia building and we opt to walk in front of Hagia Sophia building every day to admire it is building structure every time we go out from our hotel.

Even though the hotel advertise as quite, there is still huge restaurants and bars selections nearby.

Next to the hotel is a small mosque and it keeps wake me up every morning at 5am during prayer time.

We arrived after midnight and the reception maned the building 24 hours. We take the pick up service offer from the hotel with a fee which cost us €15 from Ataturk airport to the hotel. However there were slight glitch with the taxi driver as we could not find him when we arrive in Istanbul and out at the gate. Luckily the hotel reception was handy and quick when we called them and taxi driver was there within 10 minutes time.

The check in was easy and the reception very friendly and chatty. He wants to give many information and map, but we prefer to get it in the morning as we were tired and it was past my bed time.

The first night we were located at the small double room with a small balcony facing the mosque, and I felt it was really small and not much room to move around for two people inside the room. The room itself okay with everything we need. The room was nice and warm since the heater working well and we arrived in winter time. All amenities working well, the towel was nice and soft and the bathroom dispenser soap plentiful.

The breakfast was included in the price and the breakfast room located at the top floor of the hotel building with beautiful view toward the city, Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque.

The buffet breakfast spread itself plentiful with Turkish farer, bread, cheese, cold meat, boil eggs, fresh fruits, and homemade cakes by the kitchen staff which was delicious. Tea and coffee was decent and I found the Turkish coffee was very strong. Fatima who was looking after the breakfast room very friendly and helpful, she gives plenty of information where to go and see in Istanbul with her little English, and her warm welcome was very nice.

After breakfast, we asked the reception if we could move to a bigger room since we are staying 3 nights at this place. We were able to move to the biggest room with additional fee of €3 per night. I jumped straight and take the room. So we moved our belonging to the room opposite ours in the morning with the help of cleaner staff.

The second room was much nicer with plenty of space and it has dining table and chairs which we can seat and relax, and put our stuff on. The room also much brighter than the small room.

The cleaner change the towels on daily basis and clean the room.
