    The hotel is in an amazing location in the centre of the old town, perfect for all the main attractions in Istanbul. There are really good restaurants right outside the hotel. The hotel staff were superb, especially in the restaurant, nothing was too much trouble for them. My only complaints, were, the bathroom in our room was somewhat small and could use a refurb. (The sealant and grout around the bath could have been cleaner and the shower screen was hard to move) Also some of the inverters for the aircon/heating which are attatched to the walls outside the rooms were getting noisy and resonating into the room. But I stress again a great hotel and location... :)

    This hotel has a great location, but it’s kind of hidden and none of the taxi drivers we used knew where it was. The entrance yo the hotel in in a narrow alleyway. The hotel is also very close to a mosque’s minaret so you will wake up at 7am, when they start their first prayer. All the deluxe rooms face an internal area with AC units that are very loud, so don’t plan to sleep before 11pm, or bring ear plugs! The rooms are not very clean, especially the bathroom. But the staff makes it up with their smiles and friendliness!
