From our first day with a run-down of Istandul from A.J. The attention to detail and the personal service fom the staff was exemplary. Nothing was too much trouble from bookings to laundry and the best paces to visit or eat. Breakfast was a trifle predictable and the hot food side a little sparse but still better than the average. Our room was well appointed with a fair size balcony. The bathroom clean and well appointed. Noise level was good and even the call to prayer did not wake us in the early hours. There is a short walk uphill to the major sites i.e Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace etc. but the hotel is ideally situated for the average tourist. There are plenty of restaurants nearby but generally most are the usual touristy kebab joints. There are however quite a number of good places to eat at reasonable prices but I will not adjudicate as we all have different tastes. Of six persons we met with following our stay in Istanbul, three suffered stomach upsets within two days of arrival. Suggest care as to where you eat and do not drink the water even as ice in your Coke.
