Excellent riverside views. Super restaurant views and decor. Great breakfast. Superb Hamman treatment at the spa (do try it). Rooms were European-spacious, although most guests are NOT IN A PALACE! (That's next door!)! Staff very helpful (thanks for finding the paperwork we left behind and mailing it on- hopefully!). Peaceful with no audible calls for prayer.... But a little away from the action. Given traffic and the tendency of Istanbul taxi drivers to take you for a 'ride' (literally and metaphorically), you have to decide that the trade off is worth it.
