Our family of four, including two teenagers, very recently stayed in the family room for four nights at the beginning of our trip and then again for two nights at the end. The room is on the second floor overlooking the street in front. Our room and the common areas were very clean and appeared to have very recently been renovated. We liked that the kid's room and the parent's room are completely separated by a wall and door, allowing for more privacy. The kid's room has two separate double beds, and the parent's room has two double beds pushed together. We thought the beds were firm and comfortable. Both rooms have two windows overlooking the street. The rooms are small, but by organizing our luggage and the small tables, we were able to keep four suitcases open and still have enough room to freely move around. Anyways, we spend most of the time in our hotel rooms on the beds, reading, on the internet, or watching TV. There is a TV, with access to many cable stations, and refrigerator in the master bedroom. The A/C is in the kid's room and worked well. The free wireless internet was very good. The shower is small but adequate.
The staff, especially during the day, was very friendly and always very helpful. Like other reviewers, we enjoyed the complimentary breakfast, which had a good selection including yogurt, honey, cold cut meat, two types of cheese, cucumber and tomato, fruits, Turkish biscuits, nuts, cereal.
The hotel is located about three short blocks from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia.
