The first impression is just the best. Low lights, low profile… No big lobby or front desk.
For some reason, they couldn't find my reservation and neither the transfer I've booked on their website from the airport to the hotel. Waited for 45 minutes at the airport and nobody showed up. Big mistake, but the gentleman on the front desk was nice enough to check me in early in the morning (instead of 1pm) to compensate that.
The room was impeccable in details. Unbelievable lighting gives an extra vibe to the place. The bell boy took my bags and explained me how everything works in there. They left a turkish delight on the bed as a "welcome gift".
The mini bar had some good stuff. Complimentary coffee.
The concierge guy was just perfect. I stayed in Istanbul for around 20 hours, and he basically made a schedule with all the places he recommended me to visit. Stayed around 20 minutes talking to him. Great guy.
The location is perfect. In the heart of old town. You can walk everywhere! And If you can't, the train station is 3 minutes away. Lots and lots of restaurants around the hotel.
One comment about the room. You can hear some noise from outside restaurants and streets. Not a super big deal compared to the greatness of the hotel, but it might be a problem for those with a light sleep, like me.
The breakfast was good. Not lots of options, but very good quality and service. They leave the street doors open. Very romantic I would say.
The daily rate was very fair. Around 140 euros. Paid 20 euros for a transfer to the airport at 5am.
I will definitely come back to this place!
