We got this hotel with a trip package we bought on internet. In fact, the agency changed our hotel at the last minute and we knew we would have this hotel after arriving in Turkey, which is not necessarily the best way to start a trip...
Fortunately we were surprised by the hotel. It's rather new and well located, some meters away from a tram station. It's on one of the main streets of Fatih, the old district of Istanbul. So do not expect a lot of calm when you leave hotel.
They have pool, saunas, massage and the famous Turkish bath. But only the pool and one dry sauna were available.
The quality of sleep is not very good though. You can hear doors banging, showers and people walking in the morning. The acoustic isolation is poor. There is a mosque not far from the hotel and you can hear their call for pray everyday at 5am, which is not exactly what you expect if you are not muslin.
The restaurant is OK, but too expensive for the menu. It's better to eat at nearby restaurants, not very far away.
In general this hotel is OK, but be ready to wake up early in the morning.
