f you want to travel to Istanbul and want to experience the city as a local, this is the place to stay. You can walk to Istiklal street within a couple of minutes. Istiklal street is full of restaurants, bars, and night clubs. You are a couple streets down from the awesome Bosporus. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. It is not like a standardized hotel design which is boring and tasteless. This place feels like home. The room design's are very original. Breakfast is a traditional Turkish breakfast which is very healthy and interesting (tomato, cucumber, olives, cheese, jam...). Lastly the staff is very professonal and knowledgable about the city. Apparently the owner wrote a guide book or something for Istanbul. She gave us great restaurant names, and trip advice. I can not wait to go back and do it all over.
