We stayed in a suite room 801, after a very kind upgrade, which was wonderful! The room was very spacious and very clean. Breakfast was excellent I don't think there could have been much more choice given its a buffet style breakfast (although you can also order). The staff were very helpful and friendly and we would very much recommend this hotel to others. It was our first visit to Istanbul and we found this an excellent location, very accessible to the Blue Mosque and the other tourist attractions. The roof terrace has a wonderful view and very good service. A few recommendations:- for somewhere cheap to eat try Doy Doy (note they don't serve alcohol) the food is excellent, great value and the roof terrace has a view over the Blue Mosque. Also would recommend getting the tram around the city to make the most of your visit, you just buy a token from the machines for 2 lira for any length of ride. Also would recommend you do the Bosphorous trip on the IDO ferry it is 1.5 hrs each way - with a reliable timetable so you can stop and eat on the Asian side and come back - very well worth it - and cost only 25 Lira for a return trip. Get to the port earlyish to get a good seat.
