Best thing is the location is simply superb. It's more or less literally right next to the Hagia Sophia. If you sit at the tables at the front of the hotel, you are looking at the side of the Hagia Sophia, which is lit up at night. The hotel is right in the tourist area, which provides many restaurants, cafes etc. The Topkapi Palace is a leisurely 10min walk, Blue Mosque is obviously right opposite the Hagia Sophia, so maybe a 3min walk. The underground cistern museum is literally 30 secs walk (or maybe less!) at the corner of the street. Mosaic museum is also close, just a 10min walk through a reasonably worth visiting undercover market street behind the blue mosque. Be a bit careful at the hotel when you are offered coffee or tea, even if the waiter says they're free - We were charged for every single one when we left, even though they often said they were just a free coffee, as they were a gift to us and being friendly. I felt that was a bit underhand to say the least. (Also, as everywhere in Turkey, ladies need to be very aware of overly amorous waiters and staff!!!) Breakfast buffet was OK without setting any records, but pleasant enough. Room was clean and functional - More than adequate for somewhere to stay, especially if not spending any time in the room! I'd stay again for sure.
