This hotel is difficult to review. The location is superb and is a great base to explore all of the old city and in walking distance of the Galata Tower across the Bosporus. There is nothing else about this hotel that stands out. The breakfast was bland. While our package included breakfast, it did not include orange juice, which was odd. While the pictures are great, the hotel has a dated/cold feel to it. Our room was small, even by European standards. Like many places in this area, you're going to get a wake up call circa 5:00 a.m. for morning prayers. We got used to it, but if you're a loud sleeper, this hotel is situated either near or below a loud speaker. (We didn't mark the hotel down because of this, because we read about the morning prayer call in advance of our stay.)
