The principal attraction of the Sura is its location - a short walk from the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar etc. The hotel itself is fine - perfectly adequate, but nothing to write home about.
The check-in experience left something to be desired, with the clerk initially trying to get me to pay again for breakfast for my two night stay - a quick "That's not what my confirmation email says. Shall I check?" was sufficient to elicit a hasty retreat, but it felt like a try-on. (Incidentally breakfast itself was pretty average; not bad, just uninspiring).
My room (1st floor) was a reasonable size with a comfortable bed and with everything working. The design was a bit 'Vegas gaudy' - but if you like gold effect and you like mirrors all over the bathroom (and who doesn't like to sit on the toilet and check themselves out in a full size mirror a few feet away?) then you will love it.
