We stayed for 4 nights in October at the start of a 2 week trip in Turkey. We wanted a good location close to the metro in a decent area. We took the train to Kumkapi station because it looked close to the hotel on the map. We got quite lost and a local ended up calling the hotel to get directions and even he was confused (no other locals even knew where the hotel was) and he ended up walking us to the door. The sign for the hotel was small and not easy to spot especially after travelling for 24 hours to get there. Once we arrived things got much better and the staff were all very helpful and the hotel had all the amenities you need. The hotel is actually half a block from tons of fish restaurants and the boardwalk along the sea. There is a little convenience store to the right of the hotel that has ice cold water and snacks that was very handy. It was a long steep walk straight up the hill to the metro station at the Grand Bazaar but it only took a few minutes to get there. Would stay again, good location.
