I have had some shady experiences in Istanbul, some that would make a black hearted leprechaun blush, but one place stood out as honest and genuine and that was my hotel. I stayed here in February for four days on my first visit to Istanbul enjoying the central location of the hotel. The breakfast was excellent and the rooms comfortable. The only trouble one may have is the relative thinness of the walls should one have a noisy neighbor. Upon a return visit last week, I had made the gross oversight of not reserving a hotel before arriving during peak season. I was at the mercy of fate. I took a taxi from the airport to Sultanhamet and walked the streets looking for a hotel room, not having any luck. I happened to walk by this hotel and before I passed the window, the desk clerk came outside and greeted me, recognizing who I was from three months prior! This was quite a surprise, considering that I did not spend much time with them other than checking in or out. They gave me tea, offered me their hookah and told me I could hang out before going back out to find another room. They offered me a double bed room, even though it was only me, at a discounted rate for the night. They were very comforting and accomodating and genuinely kind. I thank them and wish them well. Especially Özgür Oguz, I hope you get your own hotel one day, thank you for picking me from the street and giving me a room for the night. You give Turks a good name.
