I've reviewed this hotel previously as we stayed here last year on our first trip to beautiful Istanbul, but I can't help but give it another vote of support now. Murat and his staff were just as wonderful as the last time we were there, and he went out of his way, and was more than patient, in helping us arrange a three day excursion to Ephesus, Kusadasi, and Pamukkale from home by email before we even arrived, and did an awesome job of it, by the way (thanks so much, Murat!!). We got the same room we had last time, which was great and felt, to us, like home, and the location cannot be beat. Lovely little neighbourhood with little shops and friendly merchants, and close to everything - a five to ten minute walk to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia the Basilica, and the Hippodrome, 20 minutes to the Grand Bazaar, and the metro is a breeze to get everywhere else. A couple of changes - new fridge with goodies in the room, and a nice covered area on the roof. The breakfast is something we're totally used to in Turkey now, so no issue from us. Highly recommend and we can't wait to go back. Next time I'll partake in the spa! We love this place.
