I stayed for two nights at this hotel prior to a trip to Iraq in early March, 2013. The lobby was being completely remodeled, so that was quite inconvenient, but temporary -- I hope.
I was with three friends and they were given nice double rooms on the third floor. The man at the front desk, however, put me in Room 518 on the top floor, which was like a closet with a small twin bed, and a shower nozzle that poured water directly into the floor. It really wasn't fit even for staff. When I complained, he send they were full up, but after some haggling he managed to find me a better room, though still not as good as the rooms my friends got. I found this completely unacceptable.
The location of the hotel, however, is good, on the main "drag," near Istanbul University, and the included buffet breakfast was terrific.More
