Stayed for just one night to do some sightseeing at the end of a business trip to the Asian side of Istanbul. Very basic hotel, doesn't warrant the "Special Class" tag at all, it's just a basic small hotel. Paid for a room with balcony and city/garden view but on arrival got given a tiny room without balcony on the floor below reception. Unfortunately didn't realise I hadn't been given the booked room until checking my printout of the booking form in the morning - too late to do anything about it, but in any case it's not my job to get the room right - that's what the hotel is paid to do. The room was small and shabby with old furniture and not particularly clean so my rating for "Value" is based on what I paid for the room I got - had I been given the room I'd paid for then maybe my rating would be totally different. The bed was at least comfortable and I did get a good nights sleep (though earplugs were a necessity as the walls are thin, the lift made a considerable noise and the toilet cistern in the room next door sounded like a plane taking off when refilling). Breakfast was a quite good buffet selection (though not a patch on the same cost hotel I'd stayed in for 4 nights previous on the Asian side). The only saving grace is the location - so close to so many of the must see sights - but then there are so many hotels to choose from in this area you could undoubtedly do better. So all in all I would not stay again and could not recommend this one.
