My wife and I stayed here recently for 5 nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We asked for a room at the rear as we anticipated that we would be disturbed by the tram noise in a front room as we are light sleepers. We were given a room on the 3rd floor (306) which was fine in all respects although the view was of derelict buildings but very quiet.
The hotel restaurant at the top of the hotel has wonderful views over the Golden Horn. There are 2 sittings per night - one at 7.00pm and the other at 9.15pm.it is safer to reserve whatever time you choose as in our experience word has got around and there were many people staying elsewhere who come here to eat because of the views, quality of food and professional service. We ate there the first night and thought we would try somewhere different on night 2 but had a mediocre meal nearby for about the same price. In the end we ate in the hotel restaurant for the remaining nights of our stay at various times and each occasion was excellent. Real value for money .On balance the 9.15 sitting is best for the atmosphere and views of the city and mosques etc lit up.
