Location & Neighborhood


Steps away from the landmarks of the old city, yet located in a quiet side street

On a pedestrian street only two short blocks from the Grand Bazaar, located at a real, working Istanbul neighborhood.

Major attractions such as the Blue Mosque, Arasta Bazaar, Hippodrome, Ayasofya (Hagia Sophia), the Basilica Cistern, Topkapı Palace, Archeological Museums and the tram line are all within 5- to 10-minutes’ walk from the hotel.


Getting To The Hotel and Around

Public Transportation:

We are located in walking distance to most landmarks and very close to the tram and M1 Metro Line. The Public Transportation is very efficient and our guests find it comfortable and convenient.

Please always feel free to stop by the  front desk for any questions you may have about the details of how to go to places by means of public transportation.

Hotel’s Airport Transportation:

Our airport transportation are done via TURSAB ( Turkey Travel Agencies Association)  licenced agencies only, and operate to and from the airport. We will happily make arrangements if you inform us about the details one day beforhand.

The TURSAB lincenced hotel transfer cars have a permission to enter even the traffic restricted streets of old city and will be able to come all the way to the front door of the hotel but are not allowed to wait more than a few minutes. We kindly ask our guests to be ready when the car arrives.

If you would like us to call a taxi station and ask a yellow cab for you, we will be happy to call the taxi stations nearby and ask on your behalf.

Please be informed that we cannot guarantee the taxi stations will always be able to send a taxi. Due to scarcity in taxi cabs in Istanbul and traffic restrictions, the taxi staations may sometimes say that they do not have enough taxis in hand and/or reuse to go to a destination that is too close/far or too heavy in traffic. On the other hand, finding a taxi to get to the airports is usually not a problem. We still recommend our guests to inform us about a taxi need to the airports one day beforehand.

Many sections of Istanbul’s primary old city area have traffic restrictions, including our street. These restrictions do not apply to the hotel’s airport transfer cars and yellow taxis, unless they have an unpaid penalty ticket. The restricted traffic hours are from 10 am to 9 pm every day. If you are arriving with your own car, you can enter the area outside of these restricted hours and park legally in a closed parking garage. With your parking receipt, you will be allowed to go in and out. Please be aware that the municipality may sometimes amend the rules without prior notice.
