The food was delicious there - lots of variety for breakfast and we had lunch and dinner there which was also very good.
The rooms were clean and modern although the wifi was very hit and miss. Even when it did work it was slow.
Walking from the hotel to the main area where the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia was difficult. The roads are very steep and it is a good 10 minute walk away. We'd have liked to have known this as especially in the heat and after a day of sightseeing, it was annoying in the heat. The hotel did order us taxis in the mornings to the main areas which is no longer than 5 minutes away and cost you no more than 5 lira.
The spa was nice. Would recommend the chocolate massage and coffee peel and the Swedish massage.
The hotel was clean, staff were great, rooms were nice enough however the wifi was slow and the location wasn't great so for those 2 reasons we would not stay again.
