We stayed 6 nights at this lovely hotel. Room was on the 3rd floor on the street side. We found it to be a very restful and quiet hotel. The air conditioning system worked perfectly for adjusting our comfort at will. Breakfast was included with our stay, as well as airport pickup.
The indoor pool is nice and clean, the sauna and hamman are also very nice and clean. The hotel will provide you with a pestale, a wrap to cover your modest areas to wear while in the sauna or hamman.
The location is very convenient to walk to the historic sights, Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Cistern, etc. It also has a tram stop just a block away.
Pelin was quite helpful and has a very warm personality.
We were very pleased to find the reviews to be accurate.
The Bosphorus boat trip is a must do.
There are lots of good restaurants convenient to the hotel.
Prices at the Grand Bazaar are high and the hawking of vendors and guides through out Istanbul is a pain, how many times in a day can you tolerate saying "no".
The staff is helpful in every way, this includes the desk, bell, restaurant and housekeeping personnel.
The hamman is a great jewel to find in this type of boutique hotel. The sauna and hamman are co-ed.
