A positive - location. Right between the Bosphorous and the Blue Mosque. Ask for room on Bosphorous side away from the mosque as the call to prayer is VERY LOUD! Close to lots of interesting things. Lovely view of Bosphorous from roof top.
Many negatives - food wasn't great. The internet was TERRIBLE - didn't work half the time and when it did - it as weak and sporadic. Had to go down at 2 p.m. to ask for my room to be cleaned. The 'cleaning station' - where cleaning staff gathered and sheets etc kept - was right across the hall from our room - and the staff that were in there on a regular basis during the day were also very loud - visiting and chatting while guests were trying to sleep. Bought soccer tickets from man at front desk - as in he arranged for us to buy them - paid through the nose, didn't have seats per se - he didn't tell us it wasn't the normal stadium but a stadium that was over one hour by cab away, etc. The television was a joke - few channels, tiny and crappy.
