This was a well designed boutique hotel with very nice, upscale feel. Bathroom was nicely tiled with a great shower and everything just worked perfectly. The bed was ridiculously comfortable, so relaxing we had trouble getting out of bed everyday. The price was a bit higher than we could get from a small hotel closer to the water, but the feel was definitely more luxury.
The breakfast spread was fantastic, something we looked forward to. The hotel also has a nice roof top terrace with great views but this under-marketed and could get a lot more attention which it deserves.
Just 5 minutes awalk from Topacki palace and a 10 min walk to aya sofia, the hotel was centrally located. We were amazed that so many of our friends ended up staying at these hotels that were 20-30 minutes walk from the mosques when there were in fact so many great deals like the raymond that were much closer and more convenient.
The staff were very friendly, laid back attitude, but attentive and generous as to guests´needs. We would definitely come back here!
