We didn't expect such a beautiful interior when we first arrived; just stunning gold painted trim, like Dolmabahce just about! Excellent front desk staff and service. Got a larger room than expected with lots of space, very comfortable beds, amazing amenities in the bathroom basket, not a spec of dust to be found, safe, great TV, soft towels, convenient walking distance to Sultanahmet. Fascinating shower. Staff bent over backwards to help us, including breaking large bills, arranged an extra large taxi for our group of 5 with luggage, relaxed us with tea and snacks on arrival and also on departure, and always with a huge smile. Staff spoke very good English. Can't say anything but great things about our stay. No view from our room; next building about 6 feet out the window, but this was not a concern for us. If we return to Istanbul one day, this hotel will be tops on our list.
