We saw the room that had been assigned to us and we decided to look for another hotel as we did not find it suitable. From the description it seemed to be a hotel with all comforts, but the truth is that is had no lift (that might be annoying after hours of walking in the city), there was anything else but the beds in the room (not even a wardrobe!) and there was no curtain in the bathroom so that there's no privacy at all between the people sharing the room. The staff kept insisting it was their best room! The area is lively, but very crowded and noisy. Finding the hotel and walking through the streets with the luggage was hard, so imagine our faces when we discovered it hadn't been worth it!
The area is full of hotels, you just need to be patient and you'll find another one for the same price. My suggestion is to go to Beyazıt (very central), where you can find even better prices! Turkish people helped us a lot, there were lovely. You just need to ask and to be patient with the language!
