The main reason for choosing this hotel was its price and apparent cleanliness. All the similar hotels were much higher priced. I stayed there for 3 nights at the start of my trip and then a further night right at the end. The first three night, we stayed in a room on the backside of the hotel. Some construction was going on which did create some noise but not much. Atleast, didn't disturb our sleep but did affect the view. The room and the hotel was clean and served a reasonable breakfast. Its a 10-15 mins walk to Sultan Ahmet and one Tram stop away. But me and my wife liked staying at Sirkeci more than Sultan Ahmet. There are shops & restuarants all around.
They did provide English Tea (Liption Teabags) generously when ever we asked and even provided milk from their Bar. The staff in general was very helpful and friendly. Mr. Ramazan emailed me complete list of hotels and attractions in the area as soon as I booked online. He also helped me plan my overall Turkey Trip.
Upon our return for the final night at the hotel (on our last day in Turkey), we got a family room on the front side. It was a very good room. If only we had it from the start :)
Would stay at the hotel again (if they give me a room on the front side).
P.S. they provide a free pickup from the Airport if you stay 3 nights.
