Richmond hotel in Istanbul is ideally located at the old city center in Istanbul. There were plenty of restaurants and activities as soon as you stepped out of the hotel front door. During our stay there (3 nights) in September 2013, there were a group of demonstrators sitting on the street against their government's policy decision while a group of police standing across the street from them. We took photos with both groups (my wife stood side-by-side with police & demonstrators separately) and they welcome us to do so. As a tourist, my wife and I never felt in danger with this situation since Turks were very friendly to tourists. They would not spread their anger toward their government to tourists and they understood how important tourism is to Turkish economy. By the way, this was our 3rd time traveling to Turkey and we enjoyed our visit each time.
Even though Richmond hotel is an old hotel but its room was clean. The hotel staffs were friendly as most of Turks do to tourists. The breakfast we had there was decent and we have no complaint about it.
