This is an ostentatious, pretentious and over-priced hotel in a poor part of Sultanahmet. Too big on bling and too little attention to what counts. The breakfast buffet was poor - no choice of fruit and some days none at all and coffee that was so weak it was tasteless. Staff who were very attentive until they had sold you something and then were indifferent to the point of rudeness. A swimming pool that seemed unused that they wanted to cahrge £12 a pop to use. As hower that was efficient but that leaked all over the bathroom floor.
Definitely will not be returning. There are far better options and in a better location.
