We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights on our first trip to Istanbul. The Hotel is in a fantastic location, right in the centre of Sultanahmet and 2 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque and Arasta bazaar. There are a tonne of great restaurants nearby and the hotel itself has a good terrace restaurant. Our room was in the very top of the building with a balcony and view out the back overlooking the bosphorous river which was fabulous. But the room was a little disappointing, mainly because the air conditioning didn't work and the room was boiling hot and the patio door broke on the first night so we then couldn't lock it. But it was clean and the bathroom was nice, the bed was comfortable and the room was pretty if a little small. Breakfast could be taken inside or outside in the courtyard and there was a good choice of cheeses, cereals, fruits and breads. As others have said, fruit juice is available but at extra cost. Staff were friendly and helpful.
