Had a lovely stay in Pierre Loti. The guest relations manager Esin was so helpful prior to my arrival with email exchanges and sorting out transport and transfers.
The hotel is designed in a modern fashion. Rooms are not hugely spacious. Enough room for suitcases etc but otherwise standard sized. However many hotels in the old area are not massively spaced. Showers are excellent quality. Tea and water are replaced everyone morning. Two huge bathrobes and slippers provided which are great. Beautiful tv which is flat screen all mainly Turkish channels but two cnbc and e2 have some American comedy shows.
My third trip to Istanbul and the location of this hotel is super. 7 min walk to blue mosque courtyard, 10 mins to grand bazar entrance, 3 mins from Sultanahmet tram, simit sarayi is 2 doors down ( with lovely food and low cost meat pastries for a quick snack.)
Lots of money exchange places along the road.
The staff were all very welcoming and helpful. One of the concierges does an awesome De Niro and Christoper Walken impression had us all in stitches!!!
Rooftop cafe at the top is a great place to soak up all the atmosphere after a long day out.
Restaurant downstairs is nice slightly above average prices for food but can get a mix of Turkish and Italian food. Can be annoying if yor rooms directly above as they have live music and you can hear it late in the nght. But I was so tired from sightseeing it didn't bother me a great deal. My heater in my room was broken so I reported it and was given an electric heater which worked fairly well took about 45 mins to warm up the entire room. As weather wasn't too cold it was good but can get reallllly cold in February so I don't think that would've been enough during the colder weather. Breakfast was a wide range of pastries, eggs, cheeses etc and was tasty.
Wifi is reliable and easily accessible! I never worried once about safety or quality of service with Pierre Loti I would highly recommend staying here as staff are genuinely warm and helpful and hotel is pleasant.
