The hotel has a very good location - only a few minutes of walking from Taksim square and Istiklal street, but the place is very quite and calm. Shuttle bus from the airport stops around the corner so you don't need to take a taxi. Metro station - Taksim square - in 2 minutes walk. Only one stop to Bosphorus ferries and 10 minutes by comformable fast tramway to the old center (Hagia Sofia and Sultanahmet).
We had a room with Bosphorus view - it's nice but actually not exactly worth the value cause the view is very limited because of the roofs of the other hotels. If you dream about Bosphorus panorama - better choose some hotel closer.
The room is rather small but very nice furnished and very clean - that's really important in Turkey. The photos are completely true - nice chocolate colours are very attractive, and the bathroom is very good and clean.
The breakfast is excellent- lot of fresh vegetables, fruits and sweets.
We haven't had problems with the personnel but haven't got chance to receive any positive experience also - so I wouldn't comment on it. Reception was polite and professional in spite we arrived late at night. But any discounts because of late check in weren't available also - still it's not a problem.
As everywhere in Turkey - be attentive with the currency exchange rates and payment details. But in common the hotel is really good and I would definitely recommend it to my friedns.
