If you look at the website of this hotel, the interiors look great. However, in person, the hotel is a little bit ordinary. One issue I have about this hotel are its hallways. The hotel uses motion detection to switch on and off the lights at the hallways. So, you may step out of the elevator or climb the stairs and be greeted with darkness; the atmosphere can be a little bit depressing and you may have a feeling of a little unease walking those halls.
However, we loved the swimming pool at the basement. The water is absolutely amazing and the place is spartanly clean. They offer Turkish bath at the adjacent room, albeit, very small.
The hotel is about 10 minutes walk to Istikal Avenue. And about 20-25 minutes walk to cross the Galata Bridge to go to Sultanahmet area.
