We picked this hotel after reading other reviews, and seeing location appeared to be in the middle of things. We weren't disappointed. Situated in a side street off the main road (trams) rooms were exceptionally quiet, so had good nights sleep. Staff so helpful...couldn't do enough for us. Roof restaurant highly recommended. We are seasoned travellers, so know what we are talking about.

Room Tip: Our room on 3rd floor was fine for price. Didn't see other rooms so can't compare.

We stayed for 5 nights as part of a BA package (which saves money but you then have to pay hotel (40 Euros each way) for transfer - they offer it free if you book direct.
A very good location for us - under 10 minutes on foot to all main sights and boats. Pedestrian area so quiet.
No formal 'stand-up' reception, so off to a good start with a welcome chat on the sofas. A very warm welcome and made to feel quickly settled in. Staff all very helpful - ask for their recommendations and directions.
Breakfast buffet amongst the most lavish I've seen - fruit, yoghurts, breads, pastries, hot buffet, omelettes and waffles to order - (almost) no need for lunch.
Rooms of good size - ours was shower only and be sure you have the aircon controls demonstrated to you.
We ate one night in the Olive roof top restaurant (very good, and fine views for a first night) above the hotel and in the Pasazade restaurant across the street (excellent food & value).

Great hotel in a great location, just a few minutes walk from all the main sights of Istanbul. The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice and omelettes cooked to order. All the staff were extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. We were a group of 7 friends so had 3 rooms. All were very comfortable although there were issues with the aircon which didn't seem to work properly but they provided a fan to help with this. The rooms are very well equipped with minibar, TV, DVD player and even a dock for your iphone!

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in late March 2013. The hotel is well located on a quiet street, and is about a 10-15 minute walk from Topkapi Palace and the Hagia Sophia, and is about the same distance from the Spice Bazaar. We used the free pick-up service at the airport, which worked well. At check-in, there was a bit of a wait, but we were offered a welcome drink and comfortable chairs. We happened to arrive at tea-time, during which beverages, desserts, fruit are provided free to guests in the mid-afternoon. Halim, who checked us in, provided all the information we needed to get oriented to the hotel and our first sightseeing destinations. Gursoy provided excellent service throughout our stay, and was very helpful.

The room was modern and well appointed. The bed was comfortable, and equipped with good reading lights. A nice touch is the complimentary Turkish Delight provided in the room each day! Breakfast is served on the main floor, and it is very good, with lots of fresh selections and variety. There is an enclosed roof-top restaurant (Olive Restaurant), which has a nice view of the Bosphorus, the Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. There is also a small outdoor terrace off the restaurant. Also worth noting is the excellent restaurant next door - the Pasazade.

The Wi-Fi worked most of the time, but they were having a few problems with it during our stay.

The pool is small, but quite adequate. This hotel is a gem, and represents good value. They even give departing guests gifts!
