We booked the hotel room based on the location. It is right on the Hippodrome in the Sultanahmet area. Great for walking to the sites and having a home base in a convenient location. The staff were also very cordial and welcoming. Another huge plus was the top floor view of the Blue Mosque. We would often go up at night to enjoy the view while sipping wine we purchased at a nearby shop.
The room that we stayed in was a tight. There really is no room to sit and relax in the room so if you enjoy doing that, pick another hotel. We ended up relaxing on the top level. The only realy bad thing about the hotel was that the walls were thin and if you are a light sleeper, this may cause problems.
Overall, I thought the hotel was a good value due to it's location and pricing.
Things I wish I knew: When timing travel out of the city, we gave ourselves three hours since we were leaving the hotel at 8 AM. We thought we would hit traffic. We traveled against traffic when leaving and were at the airport very early. Local connections are very easy. There is a seperate domestic terminal at the Attaturk airport.
