Location wise, the hotel was great. Very close to the Blue Mosque, markets, museums, restaurants etc, and with stunning views out over the water. Room was in decent condition, not amazing but then this isn't a hugely expensive place either. Staff struggled on the checkin, but largely good otherwise, and did have some good recommendations on where to eat. Wifi poor to terrible... Rooftop restaurant did nice food with a good view. Breakfast was largely Turkish, but as long as you're adventurous it was nice! read hotel review

Great centrally located clean and chic furnished hotel. Within walking distance to everything. Really a great location. Very friendly helpful staff. Breakfast buffet small but nice. Everything was clean. Room and bathroom was very small, due to the beautiful modern and very tasteful decor but you could be overlooked. Small bazaar for shopping in the immediate vicinity. There are all major attractions are just around the corner. Would not hesitate to return to this hotel. Is often one of the best hotels in this price category in Istanbul. read hotel review
