A terrific experiencefrom Flapsdown

Perfect location and a cosy atmospherefrom schnecke
We were a party of 7 including a 7 month old baby and we couldn't have been more welcomed.
The rooms are modern and very clean. It's not the Four Seasons but the location more than made up for it. Only a 2 minute walk to the Blue Mosque and other major attractions. The area was great for taking long strolls at night.
The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. When returning from an outing they were right there to assist with the baby stroller and had our keys waiting.
If you're wanting a cocktail, go elsewhere. The prices were higher than you would pay in L.A. or New York.
Otherwise, I'd recommend the hotel to anyone (other than the snooty Waldorf or Four Seasons crowd which I've stayed at numerous times). Don't expect your bed turned down at night with a mint on the pillow.

Arriving very late, after a delayed flight, we were shown to our room, a double instead of the twin we had booked. This was very small, a standard 4' 6'' bed with access only on one side. It should realy have been a single room. This might have been alright for a one night stay but not for five nights. They did move us to a twin the next day but this meant no unpacking until this was sorted.
Rooms did not have any type of chairs but there was a nice lounge area beyond reception which was almost always quiet and empty of people.
The rooms and bathrooms were clean, nicely decorated and had air conditioning.
The staff were mostly very helful regarding directions but one person in particular was more than annoying in trying to get us to book a 'Turkish Evening' excursion. He started on arrival and asked if we had made a decison at every opportunity, finally giving up when he knew we were leaving. Helpful is one thing, pushiness is another as there was plenty of that outside the hotel.
The most disappointing aspect was breakfast, no fresh orange juice in a city with fresh juice bars at every corner! Only one morning out of five was there fresh grapefruit available and a very limited variety of bread.
This hotel was ideal for a city break and I would recommend it for its fantastic location. You can easily travel to the newer part of the city by taxi or the tram which stops less than 5 mins. from the hotel and is less than 50p a trip.
The best hotel i stayed in since years , in Turkey.from A TripAdvisor Member
It seemed that the hotel just had a new building taken in service. We all stayed in wonderfull bright and clean rooms. The rooms are so tastefully decorated and breath an make u feel in an oasis of tranquility. Such a cosy place that we sometimes did not want too get up in the morning. I must say the best thing in the rooms is the bed, i even asked the manager where he had bought this ow so comfortable bed, which is so nice after a hard day of walking around. The bathrooms al have a bathtub and enough space too go around. I will certainly stay in this hotel again and will reccomend this hotel too everybody. Thank U for your hospitality, thank U.
Top Local Tips for Istanbul
public transport Get a hotel transfer from the airport to where you are staying. After you have been there a while you will learn the public transport system and then use it to go everywhere. However when you arrive through Attaturk airport the public transport runs through a seriously dodgy and lonely route.It is fine once you know where you are going though...and the public transport network is topnotch, London could look and learn from the level of quality.
Buying carpets Don't go to a carpet shop unless you want to buy one. Do bargain. Don't buy unless you want to. Leave after having had a presentation of the carpets and consider whether you want to buy it. It's all pressure selling; never believe otherwise.
dress for the culture Take a head scarf- women and respect theculture of knees and shoulders covered. Did see westerners dressed scantily but just didnt feel right to do likewise in Istanbul
