I can only concur with the previous reviewers and highly recommend this hotel. I was here on a 14 hour layover, and can highly recommend it as a great base for exploring the old city on foot.
On email request the staff arranged a taxi pickup for me from the airport. I had forgotten to bring some medicine along, and they went out to buy some for me, having it waiting at the desk for me on arrival and insisting was free of charge. The room was very comfortable (but not overly large). The Turkish-style breakfast was excellent, and taken outside in the little courtyard. The staff looked after my bags (and even charged up my laptop) while I took a short walk around some of the sights, and arranged a taxi to take me back to the airport (this I did pay for). In summary, I would highly recommend this place to anyone who can afford it and would like to stay right downtown, very near the Blue Mosque. The best feature was the staff, who were some of the friendliest and most accommodating I've ever experienced in many years of traveling the globe.
