My daughter (19 y.o.) and I went to Istanbul on a two-day organized tour from Bulgaria and were put into this hotel for the one night we spent in the city. We were originally taken to a different hotel that seemed a lot nicer; however, for some reason a part of the group was later taken to the Ayma Hotel and told we'd be staying there. We were quite dismayed the moment we walked in. The lobby was cramped, the hallways dingy and narrow, and while the rooms were an OK size, they were pretty grungy. There were clean sheets on the bed and everything was quite tidy, but the carpet was stained and dirty, there were stains on the walls where someone had clearly killed a few bugs, and the air conditioner was disgusting. Not only was it very dirty, but also LOUD, revving up like a lawn mower at regular intervals. It was low on the wall, right opposite my bed, and I remember thinking as I was falling asleep that the thing was probably a health hazard. Sure enough, two days later I had laryngitis, and over a week later am still dealing with a nasty cough. The spare pillows in the closet had no pillow cases and had large yellow stains on them. (YUCK.) Also, our room was right underneath the breakfast room (7th floor) and we were woken up at 7 am with chairs scraping on the floor above us.
The one redeeming feature of this hotel was the breakfast room, which was on the top floor of the hotel and which had a great view over the city. Breakfast, too, was surprisingly good.
