This used to called Obelisk Hotel. It's location is great, close to Blue Mosque and the restaurants but very quiet. The room is a bit small by American standard but adequate for Europe. It is clean and of good enough quality. The rooftop terrace is unbeatable for breakfast and evening drinks. The front desk is helpful. The only complaint is that the elevator is tiny.
