My parents and I stayed in a triple room for 4 nights. Room was very small but it faced the Marmara sea and the view's beautiful!
Being an Ottoman style building (and so are the other buildings around the area), it has no lift. The highest floor (level 6) is the terrace where guests have complimentary breakfast with the beautiful view of the blue mosque at one side and the Marmara sea on the other side. Breakfast served is the same everyday.
We stayed on the 5th floor and had to climbed up and down the spiral stairs each time as there was no lift.
Room is very small, clean but cosy. There were many channels on tv but hardly any English channels.
Just a comment to the hotel staff: there were no hooks/handles in the toilet to hang towels/garments/etc. Perhaps you can look into this.
Hotel staffs were friendly and helpful.
Location is excellent!! Walking distance to blue mosque (10 minutes) and other touristy places like Hagia Sophia, Topkapi palace and grand bazaar.
There's a small convenient shop just opposite the hotel to buy water/biscuits/etc.
Would definitely recommend this place to others for its excellent location.
