We had our concerns about using this hotel so I called and emailed the Reservations manager several times prior to our departure to ensure everything was in place as our flight would arrive at 2am and we have 4 young children. We had arranged two rooms next to each other. When we arrived at the hotel at 3am we were told they only had one room and the 'other party' (our children's room) could be in another hotel! After some arguing our case they arranged two rooms in another hotel on different floors and the rooms were tiny! On the second night of our 7 night trip we got back to our promised rooms Legend. The manager with whom I had spoken and emailed was away on holiday and the one very slim manager with bad teeth was quite arrogant. Had we not already paid in advance for the trip I would have moved hotels. There are many hotels in this area (hippodrome) which is a good location for all the main sites of blue mosque, hagia Sofia, bazaar and tram stops. Area is good, but avoid this hotel if you want a hassle free trip as the owner and some managers are not pleasant.
