Since this was my first trip to Istanbul, I wasn't sure what to expect. I had emailed the hotel to
arrange for a taxi to pick me up at the airport. The driver had a sign with my name, but he wasn't there. The other taxi people called him, and I was on my way to the hotel. The hotel is perfect location in the Sulhammet district(older area of Istanbul) right across from the Blue Mosque, within walking distance to Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace They have a wonderful breakfast buffet with breads, eggs ,fruit, cheese ,yogurt.The reception staff were helpful in exchanging money from euros/or dollars to Turkish lira,as well as arranging a cruise along the Bosphorus. As I had only planned a couple of days: I was able to see Hagia Sophia,Topkapi palace,Basillica Cistern,Istanbul Archaeology Museum, cruise the Bosphorus and get a extraordinary turkish haman. The room had a beautiful view of the Blue Mosque,although it had older furnishings it was clean and large.The hotel has a Terrace restaurant if you want lunch,or dinner with a beautiful view of the Bosphorus and Blue Mosque. It is also close to a small bazaar, and close to the tram lines, and other restaurants.
