Background: Came via Ireland here with spouse (10 weeks pregnant)
Great location: 5 minutes to Blue Mosque, 7 mins to Aya Sofia, 10 minutes to Topkapi palace and 15 minutes to Grand Bazaar. All this by walk from the hotel !!! Helpful staff: They call and book tours, evening dinner with a belly dancer show and generally help you with everything.
Two grouses: Our Air conditioning gave up cooling the room every day at around 3 am. They fixed it but it gave up still. But it worked finally on the day we left !!! Breakfast is the same stuff each day. Its a good spread but eggs (other than boiled) and fresh fruit juice are chargeable as an extra.
Shopping Tip: Walk to Grand Bazaar and take a tram ride to Spice Market and Taksim Square instead of using the Cab or asking the tour operator. You would have an enjoyable ride through Istanbul.
