I found this hotel on the net and chose it because it was different - an old sultan's palace with only 45 rooms (pity about the 3 flights of stairs to the room but worth the view). We looked out our bedroom window onto the Blue Mosque! The other side of the hotel looks out over the Bosphorus, a lovely site for the rooftop breakfast room. The staff are extremely helpful, and gave advice the first rainy night about a fish restaurant who had a free pickup and return service. What a great idea! Loads of music and singing from a great band, and a lovely meal.
There's a lovely garden area in the front of the hotel, and the room service is excellent. Breakfast is part of the package as is the free airport pickup. The curtains were probably a bit short so light came in, but the Turkish bath in the large bathroom made up for all that. There's a bazaar opposite (between the hotel and the Blue Mosque) and the whole place felt like someone's rather grand home. Would definitely stay there if we go back to Istanbul.
