My family of five stayed here the week of December 26-31. We had two deluxe doubles and one single. The hotel is fantastic, beginning with the guest relations person who greets you, shows you the dining room, the spa, has you sit for a tea or coffee while he explains, map in hand, the places you want to visit. Of course, he also offers the organization of guided tours of the main sites and boat tours. He was able to arrange a guide one day and a boat tour another on very short notice. The two restaurants recommended by the hotel were fantastic and reasonably priced.
The rooms were immaculate and quiet. Though the hotel must have been full, we heard no noise from the other guests. The only noise we ever heard was from the seagulls and the nearby mosque: call to prayer at 5:30 or 6 am.
We were not usually at the hotel in the afternoon but did notice one afternoon that pastries had been put out at tea time. They were delicious.
The breakfast is good and varied. The restaurant staff is very attentive and friendly, filling up our coffee or tea several times during breakfast.
The sauna/pool/hamam is great after a busy day of sight seeing.
The location of the hotel cannot be better. Between the spice market and the Hagia Sophia/Cisterns area.
I am already looking forward to returning to the Levni hotel on my next visit to Istanbul!
