18 years ago I celebrated my honeymoon in this hotel. Now and again I visited this hotel again. I had a short coffee drink in the lobby. The hotel is still the same except the guard who used to stand near the entrance with a huge moustache is not there.

İ think good hotel because in city Center and you can go to every place via walking, Sultanahmet square and Beyazit square also So close to this hotel you can try, if you need to go to Taksim square maybe not close to Taksim but if you found good price you can take one room
