Hotel Niles is a little gem, tucked into the hustle bustle of the city. From the moment you walk in the door you are greeted and treated to the most incredible service. Apple tea and Turkish delight await you as you register for your room, then the friendliest bellboy takes you to your room.
As two friends on vacation (without our husbands...gasp!;) we enjoyed the security of the hotel and the incredible views from the charming roof top deck.
Breakfast was a treat every morning with dried fruits, eggs, yogurt, cereals, breads, cheeses, etc. It was a lovely way to start the day, watching the birds and the busy Bosphorus port in the distance.
Our room, though small has everything we needed...along with the most affordable mini bar on the planet! They also offer unique services - like collecting food from various restaurants in the area and bringing them back for you, so you can enjoy the food on their beautiful roof top.
I would recommend their car pick up service from the airport as well. Ataturk airport is full on, so as a single female travelling, upon arrival it is nice to see a friendly face and know you will be taken to the correct hotel with no issues.
The location was also fab - right next to the tram (which is very modern and so easy to take around the city) and a short walk from Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia.
