As the name suggests this hotel is situated very close to the Blue Mosque. Compared to the surrounding hotels its a true beauty notwithstanding the littlt glitches it has. i found some of the neighbouring hotels have much smaller and antiquated rooms.Being recently renovated means great advantages in terms of modern and new finishes. The floors are wooden and the airconditioers worked very well.The views from the top few floors are spectacular! The rooftop level offers almost 360deg view of the Bosphorous but it is truly breathtaking! I spent 8 nites with my family in mid August and thoroughly enjoyed it! The staff worked tirelessly and long hours ; yes some of them need to be able to brush up their English but still their hearts went all out to serve and please us! EMRE at Reception commands his outpost very well , ably suppoted by the very sweet Nesrin and the Night Shift Manager was efficient and always helpful. The Restaurant Manager needs to be commended as she immediately took remedial action when the breakfast buffet was found to be a little wanting! Fried Eggs, extra juice and one or two other items were added to the menu.The staff worked hard and were generally pleasant and most helpful! It is about 5 minutes from the Blue Mosque and also has two smaller mosques within a few minutes walk.The hotel staff are efficient in summoning taxis and the tram is barely 5 minutes from the hotel.Notwithstaning that there are some minor problems, it is still very good value for money! I would easily and without hesitation recommend this Hotel !
