Fatih, the owner really makes this place a different experience... I really felt like I was an old friend coming to stay at his hotel - not just him, but his entire staff. And not just with me, we had booked this hotel with a wedding party of about 5-6 rooms and each and everyone of us felt the same way about the hotel. It was a different experience. From the welcome drink (get the fresh orange juice - It's SOOOO good!) to the evening snacks and coffees in the lobby, it's amazing! They go so far out of their way to help us - but the best part is just hanging out and talking to the staff.
One thing that makes this place different than others is Fatih himself who is so helpful and friendly - but he acts like one of the staff - has a regular shift at the front desk and really gets to see and respond to issues from a first hand perspective... I've never seen a hotel owner like him... It really does make staying here an experience on its own.
Location is amazing - 5 minutes to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia... about 15-20 walk to the Grand Bazaar and there is a tram station that is about 7-8 stops away from Taxsim Sqare. We also easily walked to the spice market and back when the weather was good - didn't feel like it took too long.
Some advice, I'd go with the deluxe room if you have a child...we were traveling with a 1 year old and it was an amazing room - and big enough to put the baby cot and give us and the baby enough space to run around. They also gave us a baby chair for feeding which was a huge help.
We left the deluxe room for the 2 bedroom apartment shared with our friends and that was also a nice place also. We had small issues that were dealt with immediately - another thing about the hotel we loved - if there was an issue, someone took care of it right away.
Another piece of advice - Stay in the old town area (Sultanahmet) - it was so nice to walk around and stuff - quite at night - amazing for families.
Highly recommend this hotel - we picked it because of how high it was rated on Trip Adviser and we really felt lucky to have picked this place over anything else!
