Try having an early breakfast when the sun rise. The reflection of the sun on the Sea of Marmara with the cool sea weather is heaven!

I stayed here last time and I loved it. The terrace has lovely views of teh Bosphoros and to the back views of The Blue Mosque. I enjoyed spending time there at night having a beer and enjoying the views.
