There are just 52 rooms. They are small, but luxuriously appointed. The staff is incredible and make it a point to sit with you at your convenience after check in and discuss possible itineraries and activities, which they will book for you. The restaurant is fabulous and the prices are fair, so you really look no further. Breakfast comes with your room, and it is delicious. The spa is also great. I had a Sultan's Massage my first day there, and was so glad I did. It really set the tone for my short stay there. The cooking class is a must do, in my opinion. It is free and you get to eat what you've made with your classmates. It is located on a short pedestrian street lined with shops that are upscale, but the merchants are friendly and fair and the prices aren't inflated in comparison to the Grand Bazaar. I bought almost all of my souvenirs steps from the inn. Also, it is on the main tramline for Old Istanbul .... within walking distance to everything. In summary, every time we visit Istanbul, we will book here. There is no reason to go anywhere else.
