    Superbe maison stambouliote à 5 minutes à pied des principaux sites touristiques. Restaurants et magasins à proximité immédiate. Gérant et personnel très sympathiques et prêts à répondre à vos questions. Ambiance communautaire internationale très agréable. Je recommande chaleureusement cette petite auberge familiale.

    Belle auberge dans une ancienne maison stambouliote. Les dortoirs sont plutôt jolis et propres, la vue sur la mer et les paquebots est appréciable. La bonne humeur d’Emre fait plaisir, toujours là à s’assurer que tout va bien et à donner de bons conseils. Personnel de chambre très sympathique. Je recommande les yeux fermés. ☝️😉

    L’auberge est très proche de tout, mosquée bleue à 5 min, ayasofia à 10 min, il ya des restaurants un peu partout dans le coin, franchement l’emplacement est magnifique. En ce qui concerne le staff, ils étaient super gentils avec moi, ils étaient là toujours pour n’importe quelle demande. Je salue aussi monsieur amre le propriétaire de l’auberge, c’est un brave monsieur, il est super sympathique est parle très bien l’anglais. J’ai trop aimé le bulging et l’atmosphère. Je recommande beaucoup!

    It's a very good place for the price! Nice area, big bedrooms with independent bathrooms and charming house. The only "problem" it's the isolation but probably due to the old construction. I recommend it 😊.

    Je suis resté qu'une nuit, de passage à Istanbul, très bon accueil avec une personne souriante et prêt à vous aider et à vous renseigner. Chambres propres, rien à dire, hormis une prise qui ne marchait pas mais cela reste un détail. Je recommande !
