Room: PROs: we had a small room (301) which was very new and clean, we had fruits the first day, mini bar at reasonable prices, hair dryer, fresh good smelling bedsheets and towels, soaps, A/C that worked, the window was directed towards a tiny backyard (so the room was quite dark, but not bad considering you are outside the whole day); staff was very helpful, breakfast very good, all in all great value for the price! I have nothing to complain about as you cannot do better for that price. CONs: Staff: Our keycard did not work and needed to be reprogrammed. The receptionist immediately reprogrammed it without having asked an ID from us. The hotel is situated downhill, which means you need to walk uphill for about 350m. If you are young this should not be a problem, but if you have trouble walking I would not stay there. The area is safer than it seems or looks like. You will walk along some streets that are full of rubbish, traffic and dirt. Just ignore it - this is Istanbul and the area seemed safe.Breakfast was very good - maybe the hotel can invest into some proper coffee. This is unfortunate as Turkey offers the best coffees. However, staff was helpful and very kind. I had a coffee at the next coffee store after breakfast. I had a wonderful sleep there though. Spa: I think the hotel described a Spa when I booked it, unfortunately it was broken and we did not even bother seeing it. WIFI: Wifi was also offered, but never really worked. Still for that price I cannot complain. Wifi hotspots are all around the city.
