We stayed several nights here. The location is great located on a street perpendicular to the tram line. If you ever get lost, just find the tram and follow it. Our room was TINY (had to jump over our suitcases to get in bed!) but very well appointed. All of the furnishings, finishes and decor were well selected in the design of this hotel. The room was clean and smelled nice and you can tell the cleaning staff work very hard. Everyone at the front desk was friendly and knowledgable about things in the area. The terrace has a great view of the mosques and the water. However, it can get crowded up there for breakfast and the staff cannot keep up, piles of dishes sitting around. Its also lovely to sit up there at night when the weather is nice. The AC in the room works really well (in fact one night I had to get up to turn it off because I was freezing).
My one complaint is that all the prices for the hotel and bar are in Euros. WHY!? This hotel is in Turkey. I guess they assume that most of their guests are from the EU, but for those who aren't, it is confusing. We ordered drinks and the poor bartender had to get out a calculator to convert the prices to Turkish Lira. This seems unnecessary.
