The location of this hotel couldn't be better. The Grand Bazaar is a few moments walk away and the hotel is in the thick of the action for shopping and the fantastic architecture the city has to offer. The tramway stop is virtually outside the lobby and you can go directly to the airport with a minimum of fuss. Breakfast isn't great but satisfactory. No bacon for obvious reasons and the eggs should be freshly cooked in a 5* hotel. The hotel is modern and well appointed but I was charged for wifi which will literally stop me from staying there again even though I am going back to instanbul again next week. The signal was also very poor and managed by a company in Switzerland so woe betied you if you have problems. Watch out for shoe-shine guys who try to rip you off in the street.... Stay away from them. The hotel door guys are great but the manager is a flash-harry in a tailored suit who makes you feel like you are disturbing his social life. Generally a decent hotel.
