As many have mentioned, the staff is very helpful with anything you need. They are very eager to please. Our first night they provided us two glasses of wine which we requested free of charge to watch the sunset on the rooftop terrace. We wanted to buy leather jackets and they offered advice and set us up with a respectable store without having to haggle, good prices, and top quallity. The store picked us up at the hotel.
Pros: huge room, great staff, good ac, fantastic location near plenty of good restaurants and near most of the sights
Only Con: difficult to maneuver stairs up to the rooms (I was worried I would miss a step and trip)
A word of warning: all hotels in Istanbul are difficult to find in out of way locations and many side-streets. My suggestion: have the hotel set you up with a private transfer from the airport which knows where the hotel is and is not much more than a taxi. If you need a taxi, have the hotel call you one and tell them where you are going. As in many cities, it is not easy to communicate where you want to go with the taxi driver and many don't want to use the meter.
