We stayed here for 3 nights prior to travelling to Bodrum and 1 night on the return. First night we arrived the next door room were very loud and did disturb our sleep, walls are very thin so if you have noisy neighbours you WILL hear them. We spoke to reception the following morning and they did agree we could move rooms within the hour which we did. Thankfully this resolved the noise issue. Hotel itself is OK, basic standard and what I would quote as being a Travel Lodge style hotel. Cleanliness was OK, not the highest but certainly not dirty. Bathrooms were functional with most rooms having a shower cubicle with the obligatory missing handle to open the door or shower tap that would suddenly change from Shower to Tap whilst in mid use but they're not major issues, just part of fun on holiday. Breakfast room is actually quite nice, on the top level with nice views and Al Fresco dinning if you want. This hotel is not in the centre of Istanbul, but we would it convenient as the Olivium Shopping Centre is almost next door with various shops and a food court on top level. Tram line is about 15 minute walk up 3 blocks and then direct line to all major attractions and across up to Dalmache Palace. Staff were also friendly and did resolve our noise issue, maybe be a little cautious as some might try to sell you an expensive Bosphurus cruise or overcharge for posting postcards (5TL per card, maybe a mis understanding). Think if you are a well seasoned traveller with your wits about you and know you are to expect a friendly budget hotel which may be a bit rough around the edges, then you'll be alright here.
