We joined a Cosmos tour and stayed at this hotel both at the beginning and end of the coach tour.
On our first night we were allocated a high room at the front of the hotel and this gave us a tremendous view over the Golden Horn both in daylight and at night. Our friends were on the 1st floor and they were unhappy with the traffic noise but we hardly noticed it being higher up.
On our return trip we were allocated a room at the back of the hotel with a view of a side alley but we hardly spent any time in the room as we were out exploring the area during the daytime and a hotel room as long as it offers reasonable comforts is all we expect when not paying for the better quality accommodation.
We found the breakfasts to be very good with a large variety of food - the only problem being if you put your knife down on the plate the waiters assumed you had finished with that dish and whipped it away!
Reception staff were very helpful although they were serious faced most of the time.
We used the hotel restaurant once and the waiters were extremely polite and helpful and even produced a large piece of tinfoil to wrap the remains of a very large sandwich rather than have it put in a serviette.
