We stayed a total of 9 days in Istanbul and for the first 5 days, we stayed closer to the Blue Mosque and paid a lot more for our room. When we returned to Istanbul to depart, we stayed at this hotel, which had a lovely location as well. The room was much smaller than our previous room, but that was fine with us. We liked the decor of this room better and appreciated all the small touches.
One of the best things about this hotel is the breakfast, which is across the street at some fancy hotel with a panoramic view of Istanbul. Breakfast was great! We enjoyed getting up in the morning and finding a seat by the window and just staring at this magnificent city. The breakfast offerings were also good and the hot dishes varied per day.
Staff was always friendly and helpful.
Our only complaint is that the elevator was so so tiny. It fits two people, maybe three?
Overall, I would definitely stay here again.
