During our stay in Istanbul we stayed at 3 hotels, out of the three I would rate this particulary highly. The rooms are beautifully sumptuously decorated, yet very comfortable. I quite enjoyed the range and quality of the lovely bathroom products on offer. Staff were all very helpful and nice (especially Ahmet at reception - top guy!), no request was ever too much. The breakfast was very nice with a good selection of quality produce in a very swish and modern dining room. The hotel is on one of the quieter streets behind a semi-pedestrian street full of restaurants and right near the Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern and Aya Sofia (also, if you take the shared shuttles to the airport you'll be the last one to be picked up so don't have to go through the whole of the Old City to pick up other guests!) The only downside to my stay was that we had room 102, which is right behind reception on the street level (it was nice that we had a lovely view to the street though), which was noisy at times due to 1) noisy guests at reception 2) noisy cars/motorbikes on the road outside - I imagine the rooms on the higher floors would be much quieter. Although the room was well insulated against noise, it didn't quite block out these noises, otherwise I think I would have rated my stay with 5/5.
