Fantastic, modern hotel right at the heart of Sultanahmet, minutes from the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar, plus so convenient for trams to all the other areas.
Service was amazing, breakfast generous, the rooms were spotless, stylish and spacious. The bar was hit and miss (cocktail standard varied barman to barman unfortunately) but very lovely area to sit in.
Other than the cocktails, our only bugbear was the shower in room 45 which, due to a design floor, had a tendency to flood the bathroom every time we used it - however they kept us in constant supply of towels to mop up!!
We got a great deal on this fairly new hotel, but suspect in a year's time, it will be so popular we won't be able to afford it.
