My husband and I stayed in the quaint Istanbul hotel for a week in October.
Location - couldn't be beat. Short walking distance from all the biggest sites and attractions, yet quiet and with a great view from the top. The street is lovely with cobblestone roads and it sits directly across from the Four Seasons.
Rooms - small but clean and comfortable. If you plan to spend your trip in your room, maybe go across the street for 5 times the price. Or if you have enormous luggage, you might be a little snug.
Hotel - No elevator so if you're older or not healthy, you might not like climbing a few flights of stairs. The breakfast room is very quiet and serene and the breakfast is standard that you'd find anywhere in Istanbul.
Service - We never used the minimal room service. Was nice to know they had it but there were markets nearby to buy snacks and beverages so we had no need. Everything was so easy to do from the central location of the hotel, like get a cab. Mr. Bilgel at the front desk was very helpful too, helping us figure out ferry schedules and money changing. He even helped out immensely making a phone call on our behalf after we returned home to inquire about a rug shipment.
Overall - great for young and adventurous travelers who want to see Istanbul and don't want to spend all their time or money on their room, but who want to come home at the end of the day to a safe, clean, comfortable room and get a good night's sleep.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Terrace bar and restaurant commands an impressive view of the Blue Mosque, Saint Sophia and Topkapi Palace. One could scarcely imagine a more gorgeous location on Earth. One of the oldest prisons of Istanbul and a good example of Ottoman architecture is in front of us, which is Four Seasons Hotel today. Rooms include clean bathroom and 24 hours hot water, orthopedic beds, TV, and phone. ... more less
