We had read the reviews when booking the hotel and thought that it was too good to be true. No hotel could be that good. We it's not, it's even better.
We were greeted at reception where you go and sit and a desk for the process. We were given a welcome drink and a guide to the region and places to go in the city. This was accompanied by a very useful map. A reservation was made for us in the rooftop restaurant and we were brought up to our room (all bags carried), where our main suitcase awaited us.
The room was fantastic, as can be seen from many of the photos on the site. They are large and beautifully furnished. My wife loved the way the lighting comes from under the bed, it creates a lovely atmosphere.
Breakfast is another experience that helps make this place a gem. A good selection and choice as well as a chef who will prepare omelettes and waffles for you. I particularly liked the fresh honey comb, taken straight from the hive.
You couldn't ask for a better location, walking distance to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Spice Bazaar and Grand Bazaar. Not to mention lots of great restaurants near by.
We stayed 3 nights and all the staff have the same great customer service attitude. My wife had a fall while out one of the nights and when we got back to the hotel the staff couldn't do enough to assist and showed genuine concern, even Hilmi even insisting that we mail him on our arrival home.
We have stayed in many hotels in various cities worldwide and this ranks right at the top. Thank you to all the staff in the Olive Restaurant, breakfast area and reception. In particular Hilmi for his briefing on arrival, the fact that he checked in with us at breakfast each day and his kindness. Would go back here in the morning!!
