Very helpful for our first trip to Istanbul Turkey. Had someone at the airport to pick us up and drop us off after our stay. Hotel was nice and easy walking distance to the Grand Bazaar. Everyone at hotel were eager to help with any questions and overall made our first trip to Turkey a pleasant experience.

The Hagia Sophia, Topkapi, Blue Mosque, underground basilica are all 2.5 kms walking distance straight on the main road. There is a metro station just outside the hotel and lots of places to eat around. There is free WiFi... More
