The hotel is very conveniently located - within walking distance of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace and Basilica cistern, as well as souvenier shops. The Grand Bazaar, Spice market, Galata tower are a few stops of the (overground) metro from Sultanahmet stop - which again is within walking distance from the Hotel. We booked a double room which was small, clean and quiet - with a view of the minarets of the blue mosque. While the room had free wifi, there were parts of the room away from the door/corridor (closer to the window side) which had spottly wifi reception. The room size was a slight challenge to navigate within for 2 tall people and 1 checked in luggage, however it proved to be decent value for money and served as our base camp (as we planned to be outside most of the time). We were able to order free unlimited tea, coffee during the day as room service.The entire staff went out of their way to provide exceptional service - Ozkan and Cengiz at the front desk - to name a few. They lent us the metro card for us to recharge so we did not have to buy a new one at the magazine shop at extra charge. The daily delicious breakfast spread provided lots of options for vegetarians, and there were snacks and juices, thoughtfully left out during the day. Breakfast at the cozy outdoor terrace, watching a cat tending to her frolicking kitten, definitely made our mornings (you'll see tons of cats around the tourist spots !)
We loved our stay and look forward to returning
