I stayed here with my son while visiting Istanbul. I was shocked at how safe I felt in Istanbul and even more safe at this hotel. We spent our whole time in Sultanahmet and from this hotel you just walk up the street to Topkapi Palace and Hagia Sophia. If you are worried about the current crisis in Istanbul it is far away from this location on the other side of the Bosphorous. I have an allergy to eggs and Metin made us special food for breakfast without eggs. Breakfast was great with fresh squeezed juices.They are extremely thoughtful and caring at this hotel. There is a major taxi stand one door up so we were immediately off to the airport when we needed to be. If you want home away from home this is it.
