This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I would not recommend the "single" room as it is minute and windowless. The "en suite" bathroom is actually across the passage.
The host is not in the right type of work - he is surly, grumpy and generally unhelpful.
The decor of the double and triple rooms is lovely and they have large windows which must make them very nice to stay in.
The location is perfect - right in the heart of the Sultanahmet.
