The service was wonderful, fast & helpful! Our room was cleaned every day that we wanted it to be (we usually do every other, or every two days & click "do not disturb" in-between). The big screen TV's are in a mirror that spans the entirety of the wall, although we weren't in our room that often, it was very cool! Very close to everything, and in some rooms (ours) you could actually see the Hagia Sophia. Two restaurants to the left (BBQ House & Kybele) are delicious, or at least my vegan self/my partner thought so! We didn't eat at the hotel because we thought the food was expensive & we wanted to indulge in the culture by eating other places. I loved everything about Istanbul, we were exhausted after each day & coming back to this hotel was perfect. Everything was new, clean, modern, pretty.
One down side, which may not be a down side for others: We purchased a single bed, but they gave us two doubles instead? They pushed them together to make a king, but we thought this was very odd.. and we're very affectionate, so we would have preferred a single king. Also, we could not figure out our AC & it was quite toasty at times! I'm not sure if this is how it is in all rooms, but maybe e-mail before traveling? They're very good about responding. This was not a deal-breaker, I still give this 5 stars.
