We selected the hotel as it was economical and included breakfast. The first shock was that the taxi could not reach the hotel as Istiklal Cd was full of pedestrians. The next shock was that the bath room was so small that there was no room to bend. It needed some efforts to lock the front door. To make it worse, there was so much noise from outside that we could barely sleep in the night.
The positive aspect is the proximity to the busy Istiklal street and the foodstuffs that it could offer. The people at the hotel were courteous. The breakfast was adequate. The room maintenance was good.
If you do not mind the problems as above, Hotel Residence would suit a lower budget.
My wife mentioned that we should have stayed at Sultanahmet instead of staying at Istiklal Cd even at a higher price.
