This hotel certainly lived up to all the good reviews I had read. The position is excellent, in a pedestrian street lined with restaurants near Gulhane Park. It is only 1 short block from the major tram line which takes you to all the major sites in the old city and to the Grand Bazaar or to Dolmabahce Palace if you go in the opposite direction. The rooms are smallish, as in most hotels in this area but the beds are extremely comfortable, with top quality linen, nice towels, and a collection of toiletries provided. All rooms have a frig and mini bar as well as an electric kettle and a collection of coffees and teas. Breakfast is excellent and even includes a station where a chef will prepare eggs for you however you want. The staff are outstanding for their professionalism and courtesy. Best of all was the heated small pool with spa jets, heaven after a long day of sightseeing.
