As our flight arrived late in the evening, we decided to go for a quick and safe way and took a taxi. The drive lasted around 30 minutes as the traffic was not very heavy around that time and the driver was not blindly following the speed limit. The total cost of the trip was around 50 Lira.
The hotel is located in the historical part of Sirkeci, in the walking distance from the famous monuments like the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. You can reach them conveniently on foot. On your way, you will see lots of gift-shops and restaurants with extremely eager staff. McDonalds and Starbucks are not that rare view in Istanbul, so if local is not what you want to taste, they are always a secure option.
Our room was on the 4th floor, facing a little mosque. Even though they gave us an upgrade, we found the room a bit small. But then - it's a boutique hotel. Otherwise the room had all we needed, was very clean and well maintained- the only small minus being the air conditioning device: Despite our efforts, we could not lower the temperature in the room.
The room had a minibar, a kettle and they were supplying a bottle of water everyday.
There's also a safety box in the room.
Wlan worked perfectly.
The staff was extremely polite and helpful: starting from the reception and ending with the cleaning lady. 10 points for service!
The breakfast was very comprehensive, with lots of choices - different breads, local cheeses, lovely fruits, pancakes, you name it. If you fancy an omelette, they will prepare one for you.
They also have a small spa with a Turkish and Finnish sauna and a swimming pool. We used those facilities quite eagerly.
The fitness room, on the other hand, is a bit small with just one treadmill, one cross-training device and a bike.
