My main issue was the ANT INFESTATION in our room which they did nothing about!! We stayed for three nights- on the second night our room was covered in ants, in our shower, our bed- everywhere! I went down to reception and they said they had no spare rooms so they could do nothing but that we would be given a different room for the remainder of our stay. I asked if they had anything that I could use to get rid of them- they simply answered 'no'. So the rest of our evening was spent working as an improvised Rentokil........... So after an uncomfortable and itchy night we awaited our new room- but we didn't get it! They said we don't have one- when I began to complain, they magically stopped being able to speak English. So another night we had killling ants :( I was quite annoyed by the time we left this place- I asked for a small discount for the 150 euros we were charged for 3 nights but was just told 'you have to pay' so pay we did and left feeling a little bit sad that this hotel had spoiled out otherwise amazing trip in Istanbul (we stayed in 2 other cheaper and wonderful hotels too). My other problems: 2. Very DIRTY- dust, cobwebs everywhere. 3. Horrible "breakfast" which was served in a dirty little rooftop whose views are not as great as they make out in my opinion. 4. Rubbish shower 5. Dangerous stairs. Please please don't stay here, it really is the worse place i've ever stayed and I've done a lot of travelling- you can get much much better for your money
