My husband and I stayed here for about a week. Let me start with the bad(ish). The breakfast was not good by American standards: It had Special K and Cocoa Puffs cereal, yogurt, cheese and olives (not good breakfast items), some pastries, runny eggs, hotdogs in what looked like spaghetti sauce, and cold french fries as "breakfast potatoes." We were less than impressed. The rooms don't block out outside noise at all, and our door to our balcony didn't lock, which wouldn't have mattered much but one night we came back to the hotel with the lobby trashed after "a crazy man who asked for cash trashed the place." I felt unsafe that night and considered switching hotels, but we stuck it out, and I'm glad we did. Obviously this was an isolated event and doesn't really reflect on the hotel or its staff. The rooms were very nice and clean, the front desk staff were very helpful, location was perfect (near the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia), and they offer a shuttle to and from the airport, which I recommend using because cab drivers rip you off. All in all, I would stay there again, though, if I ever am back in Istanbul.
