I had to leave a review for this hotel since February 2011 when I first visited it. Since then I've visited the city and the hotel for more than 2 dozen times for business, family vacation, vacation with friends and even solo. Other than Istanbul being the city of great exuberance, this specific charming hotel adds to the whole unabridged experience just to leave you with more thirst to visit the city again and again.
You could stay in this hotel and feel like home. It is 3 minutes walk from everything that is extremely significant to be seen in this city while you're there. 1 minute away from tram station, 5 minutes walk to the blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, to the amazing public garden with daily theatrical performances, around 7 minutes walk to the Grand Bazaar, 3 station away from Spice/Egyptian Bazaar, and even 15 minutes away from the port to hit the islands for a day by the tram. you can hop-on hop-off the buses just after 5 minutes walk to have a great tour and view of the city.
The management of the hotel is ample. I have been contacting Mr. Erkut Guven for all my reservations for the passed 2 years and he and his team are always more than ready to assist even if they are in a tight schedule to deliver requests and assistance. Recently, I can add Mr. Suat Uslu for his remarkable assistance be it for when I'm visiting the hotel or when I'm overseas trying to accommodate. The hotel's Staff members are all very friendly, efficient and ready to be useful at all times.
The hotel provides a rich breakfast in the morning (Turkish and continental) and provides all staying visitors with a 15% discount to Faros Restaurant which is conjoined to the hotel and serves the best of the best food in the location.The rooms are clean,cozy,with clean bright toilets, wooden planked floors and radiant lights providing a harmonious system. The hotel is well-managed where they spare no time to upgrade your room to a better one or even a suite.
I can go on forever describing my experience in this hotel in this specific city, however the only rigorous advice I can give is DO RESERVE this hotel and DO VISIT the city from there on!
