I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. It 's located 2 streets under the main road of the Beyazit area of Istanbul, in a narrow street. It says that it is a 4 stars hotel. It is fully renovated, with new furniture and new bathroom, but the rooms are too small and narrow for a 4 stars hotel. As I came with a group, I don 't know the cost of the room, as there isn 't any note at the door of the price. The hotel has a very good breakfast (this is really of a 4 stars hotel) served at the seventh floor with a nice view of the Marmara Sea. The hotel has an indoor pool, a sauna, a hamam and a gym. When I asked for the sauna, I was told that I have to pay 12 $ so as to use it and I considered it rediculous, as I have never paid such services in hotels... The hotel was very clean and there was a water machine in the corridor, so I was taking water from there (Instanbul 's water is not drinkable) and didn 't pay for bottles all the time. The beds were OK, but there was enough noise from the corridor when there were people who don 't understand that other pepole want to sleep, as the noise isolation of the rooms is bad. The TV was playing satellite programs from Balkan countries (except Greece!), but no Turkish channel or international!!! The area of the hotel is full of shops and there are a lot of people during the day, but in the night only a few are around and some people (not me) can be a bit afraid, especially women. The main street of Beyazit, which is near, is much better, and there you can find a lot of restaurants and other shops, open till late in the night. Very near to the hotel and on this main street of Beyazit you can take the tram to go to attractions as Ayia Sofia, The Blue Cami, the Top Kapi Palace, the Galata Bridge, the Agyptian Market and the Harbour. Ayia Sofia is a 15 minutes walk from the hotel (2 tram stops). Also very near to the hotel is the Old University. At one tram stop distance (Cemberlitas, in front of the Constantine Column) is the Cemberlitas Hamam, which is a traditional Hamam and for me the visit there was a great experience. It takes about 1 hour and a half to make the basic series with a 15 minutes treatment by an expertised man (the cost is about 28 Euros, the Greeks pay 4 Euros less). The women are treated by women. I show also 2 other Hamams around. For people who are interested in shopping, very near to the hotel (opposite to the Beyazit tram stop) is the Kapali Carsi (or the Grand Bazaar) with 4.000 shops, where you have to be prepared to bargain, as the prices are not matching the value of the things and bargaining is a custom in Turkey, like all Eastern countries. So the position of the hotel is quite good, and the hotel is OK, but surely it is not a 4 stars hotel.
