The hotel is set in beautfiul gardens front and back. The front has a fountain and tables and chairs to relax in and the rear terrace, which is where you can dine and take in the views over the water.
We had a room on the ground floor which was quite comfortable and spacious, high ceilings and an airy fresh feeling. Plenty of room for accumulated luggage. The bathroom was reasonably spacious although the bath was quite high to step into. ( Standard Rooms on the upper floors with Turkish baths, are quite a bit smaller with much lower ceilings). The rooms were very clean and well presented, everything you could need.
The staff were friendly, cheerful and helpful, from the Reception staff, the lovely housekeepering ladies and the Dining and Waiting staff.
This hotel was in an excellent location, within walking distance to most sites in Istanbul, The Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Cistern, St Sophia, Topkapi Palace and with an amazing view of the Blue Mosque, right opposite the hotel's entrance. There are good quality restaurants close by and plenty of shopping with a small bazaar out the front.
The breakfast was good, several choices and eating each morning on the terrace a lovely way to start the day.
