Location of this hotel is great - right in the old city and walking distance to all major sights and public transportation. The rooms are very average and dated, but the rooftop restaurant and pool area are beautiful. Amazing views of the harbor and city. Food and drinks are also very reasonable in the restaurant. The hotel has a lot... More

We had never been to Istanbul before, or to Turkey for that matter so we were perhaps a little anxious knowing next to nothing about Turkish hotels, Turkish food, Turkish hospitality etc. It... More
