We were just one night on our trip through Turkey and chose this hotel because of the rates and the location.It has really good location,next to Gulhane tramstation,Topkapi,Aya Sofia...just few minutes walk,but the thing that i didnt like was that we didnt got the room that the stuff informed us that we will get,or the room that they show as family apartment is something else!The boy at the reception was like surprised when we were checking in,despite all the e-mails.The other thing is that they charge you for the parking if you come with car!Not just that,the guy that parked our cars at the arrival asked for 20eur,but the other day when i payed at the reception asked for 16...i dont like stuff like that at all,no matter where it happens.The front door couldn`t lock.The `family room we`ve got actually had two separated rooms with two bathrooms(that were quite ok)separated with a door inbetween,was ok for 4 people,not for 6 as we reserved!!!And than they brought one extra bed and one babycot for our smaller child.The breakfast was ok.
I don`t intend to write for this on any other purpose than - make sure you get the right room or look for other hotel in the surrounding,and there is plenty of them!
