I was taken here by wife for a five day stay in May 2013 The hotels location is brilliant for the sights everything is within walking distance saved on taxis etc. The hotel was clean and tidy freshly painted when we were there, rooms to the front have the nicer aspect the ones to the rear look over the single rail line which is not too busy. As a result of reviews we took our tea makings for the room. Breakfast was enjoyable if you are looking for a fry up then you will be disappointed but fresh breads, salad, ,hard boiled eggs, yoghurt honey, spicy meats etc. were plentiful served in a light airy room we had leisurely breakfasts before our marathon sightseeing days. We enjoyed our stay the staff were pleasant and helpful, we are going to return to Istanbul in the future and would use this place again and recommend it to others due to its location. The outside bar terrace is a bit shabby but great for looking out over the water with a calming beer.
When leaving suggest you don't bother with the minibus to the airport you can book through the hotel it goes all round the houses, the taxis are just as cheap and direct.
