On arrival the hotel had double booked, meaning we had to stay at their "sister hotel" the first night, but the staff were very apologetic. We even received an apology letter and a box of Turkish delights....
The staff overall were extremely helpful and friendly, which made our stay in Istanbul very easy.
The location is excellent, being only a short walk to the tram system and major sites.
On the negative side, although we had a double room, the room itself was tiny. Maybe this is normal for a historical area of Istanbul. However the room was immaculate and well equipped.
Overall I would recommend staying here, but remember this was our first trip to Istanbul so we have nothing to compare it to.
