We stayed here on 2 separate occasions, 1 night upon arrival in Turkey, and another 3 nights before leaving Turkey. We got a small room on our first night, in the main building on the upper floors. The room was lovely and rustic, a bit small but very quaint and nice. It was clean, and everything worked perfectly fine. The breakfast room is located in the rooftop terrace, which provided spectacular views. The breakfast selection was decent, not too large selection but of good quality and yummy. The staff manning the breakfast buffet was friendly, polite and helpful. The manager was extremely helpful and friendly, but he's a very busy man and is quite hard to get hold of.
Location wise, the hotel is perfect as it is near a lot of shops and restaurant, yet not too near the hustle and bustle of Sultanahmet, which is noisy. We easily reached the Blue Mosque and other attractions in under 10 mins of walking, passing through shops, restaurants and a bazaar. It is also near the water, so the views from the rooftop terrace are fantastic.
On our 2nd stay, we had very large, full luggages each, and the manager helped us get a bigger room to accommodate our heavy luggages. He gave us a room in the 2nd block, adjacent to the 1st, which is a lot more modern and newly furnished. The room was beautiful, large and airy, and the furnishings were mostly new. The bathroom was bright and large and very comfortable.
We had to make a local phonecall to Emirates but the phone in the room wasn't working as their lines were down. The staff allowed us to use the phone in the reception (for a fee), and even helped us dial the number when we ran into trouble with Turkish prompts.
Fuss free wifi with no issues of connecting. Password given upon check-in.
Overall a splendid stay, the rooms are beautiful and the staff are warm and accommodating. Brilliant hotel manager pulls it all together nicely.
