I have stayed during March in this hotel, I booked a triple room, the hotel location is perfect, just in the center of the old city, less than 5 minutes walking to Aya Sophia and blue mosque.
The room was clean and the house keeping is good, a lovely lady called Mary is responsible for breakfast and the house keeping, so kind and friendly.
Our tour guides were the hotel staff, Ali and Ahmet, they gave us all the recommendation and the assist to enjoy every moment in our holiday.
only two points I would like to mention:-
- The room size is smaller than my expectation as per the pictures, and if I knew the actual size, personally I would prefer to take a double room and single room instead of the triple room.
- It was noise and smelly in the morning when Mery was preparing the breakfast, but maybe this can be avoided if the room is in 2nd or 3rd floor.
In general the hotel is recommended, especially if you are planning to spend the whole day outside in Istanbul.
