The design of this impeccable boutique hotel is both uncluttered and imaginative. The rooms are in adequate size, clean, extraordinary design (really!) with thoughtful details and comfortable, and the bathrooms with high-end finishes. We especially liked the coloful walls, each different on every floor, in stark contrast to the black/gray of the urban lobby. An assortment of fruit, meats, cheeses, breads, yogurts, and cereals are served in the stylish but relaxed lobby each morning, and eggs as you wish are made to order. We also frequently ordered cappuccion and lattes, served in the cafe, really yummy.
During our six-night stay, the staff -- and especially the three gentlemen who manned the front desk -- advised us on restaurants, secured our taxis, and answered numerous questions about the city. The entire staff was always welcoming and helpful; they made us feel right at home.
Finally, the hotel is well-located in Karaköy -- an artsy neighborhood across the Golden Horn from the major sites. Cafes, bars, and restaurants are just across the stree, the tram to the Sultanahmet area is only 150 m away, and Taksim and Istiklal Street -- a major pedestrian shopping avenue -- are easily reached on foot. But for a real thrill, take the ferry a stone's throw away from SuB. You will never be the sameMore
