“Nice hotel in an expensive city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

This hotel has a good location and friendly service. The hotel pool on the roof is a nice addition, especially after walking around hot Istanbul. It's a bit pricey but when comparing other options, I found that there was a massive price difference between Istanbul and the rest of Turkey. However, nice place, comfortable and fairly quiet.

This hotel is well located close to the Grand Bazaar, The rooms are a good size. There is a small outdoor pool great for relaxing. The sauna, steam room and indoor pool are free to use for guests unlike many other hotels whiich charge for these facilities. The hotel restaurant serves great food at reasonable prices.

The hotel is located not too far from the old town, maybe a 20 minute walk. Otherwise you can use the nearby metro stations of Aksaray or Laleli to go there. If you don't have too much luggage you can reach the hotel by metro from the airport down to Aksaray metro station. Nearby there are many good and not touristy restaurants, the area is mostly for garments wholesalers who export to nearby countries with many such business people using the hotel. The hotel itself has a very good restaurant. What I did not like about the hotel is the fact that the lift was always having problems and oftentimes had problems while people were inside, thanks God for the emergency safety landing was operating. Also, the rooms did not have good blanket and with AC on I felt very cold at night. The people there are not very friendly but at least the recepreception was honest. Breakfast was generally good.

The roof top pool is big enough to have a quick swim and the surrounding area great for sunbathing. There is an attendant who does drinks and meals. The indoor pool is next to the hot room and steam room which are free. It is located close to the Grand bazaar and 3 tram stops from the Hagia Sophia and spice bazaar. The breakfast is filling with cereal, fruit, great pastries and tea. Some warm food such as scrambled egg and sliced salami which was not as good. I think the reception staff were good but their English is limited. When they understood they were very polite and helpful. Air conditioning is good. The beds are extremely orthopaedic.

Room Tip: The 6th floor rooms are good for the roof top pool.

This place is the perfect location,if you want to stay in the old part of town, a five minute walk to the grand bazaar. Like the rest of the city, it's very, very clean. However!......
Like alot of other visitors who have posted a review, i found 90% of the staff un-welcoming, rude and unhelpful. My fiance asked for a spare keycard for our room in case we got separated, and they refused! I had to go and demand one! They appeared far too busy with their own lives to worry about such annoying things such as the hotel guests!!
Basic rooms with rock hard beds. Both me and my fiance woke up with sore backs and sides every morning.
Breakfasts are...weird! Some things are edible and some things aren't. I guess it's ok if you just want a coffee and something to give you some energy for your day ahead.
The pool area on the roof gives you some truly incredibly views of the city. The pool itself in the picture looks HUGE but in reality they've stretched the picture out as far as they can. Two breast strokes and you've done a full length. I suppose it's fine if you just want to cool down. The pool bar is a joke. It's not stocked with anything! - but they do just run all the way down the the bar on the bottom floor to get your order, which i guess solves the problem! The free wi-fi is free for a reason - It's painfully slow and was completely un-usable in the bedroom. Not bad at the pool area and the lobby but still slow.
We never ate at the hotel restaurant because the menu looked pretty beige, but there's a restaurant just next door called Diana's which must be tried. Lovely staff, and amazing food/drink. I'm about to give them a glowing review:-)
So in summary, yes I would actually recommend staying here IF you're you're on a budget and not going to spend alot of time in your hotel, because it's cheap, well located, the area is quiet, and it's clean as a whistle. But get yourselves an upgraded room on the top floor. You're back will thank you for it!

Room Tip: Wifi better on top floors. Rooms are also bigger with better beds

Stayed here on a tour package. Rooms were very basic. Beds small and pretty hard, but clean and quite acceptable. Rooms decorated with lots of little dolls and such, if that appeals to you. We stayed on the 6th floor, and the room was a little odd with slanted ceilings and a mediocre cooling system, but we could walk up to the rooftop pool and bar! We sat out and looked out over the city, and it was very quiet and peaceful, quite an antidote for the bustle of the city below. Beer served very cold, in iced glasses. Later, we stayed on the 4th floor, and the room was much nicer, with an excellent bathroom.

Consistent hotel - same as our stay last year. Great location in quiet street with no cars. Excellent service. Good value for Istanbul. Short walk to tram. Only complaint was I had trouble peeling the boiled egg at breakfast :-)
