At first, I was very excited when I booked this hotel. We really wanted to stay a few nights on the Bosphorus. The location and view are great. Ortakoy is a very happening area but the music from the clubs go until 2am and it's loud. Then a very load call to prayer at 5am. I understand and appreciate the call to prayer and has never bothered me at any other hotel that I have stayed at in Istanbul. This one is so loud that seems as if your room was being raided by the police or something. I travel with ear plugs too. In addition, I also had experienced the itchiness that another reviewer had mentioned here. Sure enough, there were holes in the bedding as the same reviewer described. Management were indifferent to the whole situation and my concerns with their cleanliness. I checked out early as well with no offer of compensation from this hotel. I have traveled around the world and stayed at many places and have never experienced what I did here or needed to check out early due to concerns. If you need to stay in this area, I suggest you plan on not sleeping before 2am. The views were killer from this hotel, no doubt, but there must be other options. Personally, I find the Sultanahmet are much more peaceful and quiet
