I can only repeat what others have written - a true gem of a hotel. Location, facilities, staff were all above expectations at a very reasonable cost. From the moment we walked in the service was impeccable. Without asking the porter brought water and orange juice. Breakfast on the roof top overlooking the Blue Mosque was a real treat. Food quality and service very good with refreshments (complimentary) available there all day. Wi-Fi through out. Room amenities outstanding. Also note some excellent restaurants within walking distance.
TIP. If staying more than a few days it is worth learning the local tram routes. Because of the narrow one-way streets in the area, taking a Taxi might cost more in standing time than in distance travelled! It took us almost 90 minutes at mid-day on a Thursday from Airport to Hotel. However if arriving or leaving from the cruise port it is only a 12 minutes.
We look forward to our next visit.
