Upon arrival we were met by friendly receptionist! We checked in and another receptionist took us to the breakfast room. We were given complimentary tea/coffee and as we checked in a 4pm they were serving complimentary cakes and biscuits for all guests - we were able to indulge!
We were then given an informative half hour of where to go, what to see, how to travel, things to avoid, restaurant recommendations. - A lovely personal touch by the hotel!
Room was on the ground floor - at night due to annoying Russian DRUNK people there was a lot of noise!! However the decor was modern, very comfy bed and bathroom was clean.
Breakfast was fresh, enjoyable and laid out nicely.
The location of the hotel is great walking distance to sultanahmet tram, the blue mosque. Going on the tram you can visit other places. Avoid the market behind the blue mosque as it is very over priced!
Do go to the market Grand Bazar, Spice Market, do walk to see the Galata Tower - beautiful view right at the top!
MUST GO TO ALBURA KATHISMA restaurant - SUPERB FOOD!
