Decent quality rooms with pleasant service. Good location near the Grand Bazaar. Road looks rather grim when you arrive but the hotel is fine.

At breakfast wonderful views out across the sea. Food the standard buffet style in Europe.(Don't expect cooked British or American style.)

At dinner even better views of the Blue Mosque. However food at dinner not great and the music much too loud.

The hotel was clean and had a lovely rooftop restaurant. The breakfast was very good. The situation was excellent for walking to the main sites of interest and only 15 mins from the airport.the rooms were fine although it was possible to hear voices through the bathroom walls but this was not a problem. There was a good dinner show venue almost next door underground which made a great last night finale to an excellent short break. I would recommend this hotel.

The hotel is situated very close to all the most important sites (2 tram stations from The Blue Mosque, The Basilica Cistern and Aya Sofia, a walk takes only 15 minutes and is a very pleasant one). Just across the street is one of the main gates to the Grand Bazaar. The hotel is very clean and the staff helpful (a good tip is compulsory). The view from the room was poor, but maybe the higher floors have a better one. The breakfast was very rich (on the 6th floor) with an outstanding view to the sea and even some gulls in the window. Tiyatro Street is a little bit messy, but the hotel doorway is ok and very clean.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a better view

Centrally located hotel 50 metrs from the tram line and Big Bazar with all the benefits you expect from that. A lot of restaurants around and shops - services are at standard level and prices are higher v/s the services that you get.
The view is nothing to talk about from the rooms, but the restaurant at the top has a wonderful view..
An average hotel with high prices, but the location and the view is what you pay for..

Very nice hotel close to all the main atractions that lively Istanbul has to offer, however this comes at quite a cost. More expensive than in most other big cities we have been to.
Lots to chose in the breakfast section, however most things are a bit tasteless.
Decent hotel but I guess you can get a slightly better one if you search for it!
