My wife and I were guests Feb 2012. The hotel is very convenient for public transportation from the airport (across the street from the University stop of tram T1). T1 also continues to other major sites, but the Grand Bazaar is a five min walk, Blue Mosque fifteen. We did not find nearby restaurants to recommend.
The hotel is even better than the normal Hilton standard of service. Check in/out was friendly and flawless. The interior architecture is striking, but harmonious with glass bridges in a full atrium. Our room was compact, but very comfortable; very nicely furnished and decorated. Housekeeping kept it immaculate.
We ate in the Terrace restarant once -- the food was forgettable and overpriced; service fair. However, we had daily breakfast at ground level (included with Hilton Gold status). The food quality and service was excellent -- great start to the day.
We used the complementary services of the spa each evening. Very nice locker room, coed tub and steam, and separate sauna. Towels, robes, and fruit were complementary.
