Everything to me was average about this hotel.
Nearly everybody here first mentions its stellar location: It was in the Old City, near sites such as Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace.
Although that point gets moot after one day when you've visited all those sites already. You're then surrounded by overpriced tourist traps, getting pestered by smooth-talking shop/restaurant owners.
Since it's also close to the mosque the 5am prayer loudspeaker can get loud at times, woke me up a few times - but then again I'm a sensitive sleeper.
