Where to begin? From the moment you enter this beautifully renovated century-old building, you feel welcomed and pampered. The interior is completely modern and elegantly spare. The suites are large, comfortable, quiet, and well-equipped. Great beds! The breakfast, served in the top-floor restaurant (with fabulous views) is excellent both in quality and variety. The staff: very helpful in every possible way, from providing hand-drawn maps to making restaurant reservations; every staff member was excellent, and special thanks to Nural.
Negatives. Hmmmmm.....I really have to search for this...well, the location, while very convenient, is off a steep street so perhaps those with mobility issues might find this a challenge. Otherwise, this is simply a superb hotel and on our next visit to beautiful Istanbul, we will most happily stay here again. This is the boutique hotel experience you want!
