The hotel itself is very nice and clean. The staff is wonderful and all speak english very well. The best thing that you're going to get out of this hotel is the view of the Golden Horn. With respect to location, the hotel is in a quiet residential area surrounded by local restaurants. There's a park across the street, with a sidewalk allowing you to walk by the water. It's pretty far from the main attractions, but luckily the hotel offers a free shuttle several hours of the day taking you to several locations including Taxim square. Both Taxim and the Old town are about 30 minutes away +/- the horrible summer traffic. The best choice of going about transportation is either taking the ferry, the hotel shuttle, the Tram, or the metro. The ferry is a fun and relaxing way of getting around, and the tram is fast and clean. Both are cheap. Really, any mode of transportation that doesn't involve getting stuck is traffic is the best way to go. Try to avoid taxis if you can. Many of them cannot speak english and will take you on a longer route to get more money out of you. Overall, this hotel is an excellent choice if you wish to stay. You just need to be smart about how you get around the city.
