Stayed here on business for two nights in October. Perfect home away from home for business. A quiet and comfortable night's sleep (good beds and sound-proof windows. Not a good idea to keep the window open to let in the air from the Golden Horn to waft into your room if it's facing the front entrance of the hotel which means the road. But with the window closed it's quiet)
Service is fast and friendly, breakfast is fresh and plentiful (try the Turkish scones with cream cheese and fresh honey that you have to pry off a real honey-comb). Good rain shower that I discovered only on my second night. Was using the hand-held and accidentally looked up and noticed it. I guess I'm just not tall enough!
The only little strange thing is that there was no soap in the bathroom for the entire stay. Three colleagues of mine were staying here too and they had no soap as well. We all used the little bottles of shower gel to wash our hands. One friend did get bar of soap in her bathroom on her last night, though.
Overall I'd stay here again. Something tells me the soap issue is very easily resolved here. And I'd make sure I'd use the indoor pool too.
