We stayed at this hotel for a number of days. The room was clean, though small, and well appointed. We chose it because of its location - so close to the Grand Bazaar and well-placed for Istanbul's other fabulous 'must sees'. They were currently serving a good breakfast in the lushly decorated lounge, while renovating, but construction noise was usually minimal. What sets the hotel apart was the level of service we received. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who went beyond the norm to give us the help, maps, directions and information we asked for, as well as the offer of a drink after a day of shopping! Cafer was of special assistance and his help was much appreciated. Would stay there again.
