What a great place, with an amazing and welcoming staff! The location is perfect if you're looking to be in the old city - easy walk to the Blue Mosque, Hippodrome, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and a great selection of restaurants and shops nearby. The rooms are comfortable, a reasonable size for the area (we had a triple with 3 twin beds). It's probably an odd thing to call out, but their towels were fabulous - huge and absorbent! The breakfast every morning was a very nice selection of cold cuts, fruits, cheeses, eggs and bread/pastries with yummy yogurt and several types of homemade jams that were wonderful stirred into the yogurt or on toast. Good coffee and juices too. The staff really makes a difference though - always quick to help with any questions whether it be last minute arrangements for the hammam, or recommendations for restaurants. The free internet is a nice bonus too. Be sure to try the restaurant right next to the historia - their mint lemonade is beyond yummy. I would highly recommend this hotel and will stay there when I travel back to Istanbul.
