We stayed in this hotel for my other half's birthday and it exceeded all my expectations and all of the great reviews I had read before booking. Even before we left for Turkey, the manager was in communication by e-mail to provide helpful advice with a personal touch. Our greeting was warm and friendly and started with some helpful tourist information and a complimentary drink. We were then provided with a birthday cake for my other half and were taken to our room that had been decorated (touches that I had already arranged with the manager by e-mail prior to leaving for Istanbul!). I couldn't fault anything - the room was spacious and clean, the breakfast was adequate (didn't need to be anything more than that), the view from the roof terrace of the Blue Mosque was great and the location was perfect (in Old Town within 3-5 minutes walk of all the major historic sites). Above all else, the service was absolutely amazing - it was warm, sincere and always had a personal touch, regardless of what they were giving advice on - restauraunts, directions, travel plans, etc. We were always being reminded that our enjoyment was their priority and this incredibly high standard was upheld by every single member of the team, from the managers at the front desk to the porters and breakfast staff. It really was on a level I have never experienced at a hotel before. This hotel very much made our experience special and memorable - it now stands alone as the place we would choose to return to if we visit Istanbul again (if they have room for us!).
