This was our second visit to Istanbul and I was keen to find a great hotel base in the Sultanahmet at a reasonable price for a 6 night stay. Looking at the hotel site I thought the room with a view of the Blue Mosque looked good and it exceeded my expectations.
The room is spacious including a verandah with lounge, arm chairs and coffee table. Relax out there while enjoying the beautiful Blue Mosque view. A huge double bed, TV (unused) and enormous bathroom with somewhat mysterious hamam section complete the comfort.
Breakfast alone deserves a paragraph if not an essay. On the top floor (one flight above our room) an incredible buffet breakfast awaits. I am not generally a fan of buffets but this one is special. I could not begin to list the treats – sweet and savoury. A team of at least 3 staff await any guest needs. Freshly squeezed orange juice is supplied and an omelette will be cooked at your request. Generally we just ate from the enormous range already provided. And the view, on one side the Bosphorus and on the other the Blue Mosque. So many choices.
The hotel arranged free pick up for us from Ataturk Airport and for a long term stay also returned us there in great style. They also offered a good discount for a cash room payment.
The staff were professional, efficient and very friendly. They serve free cakes and meze at times though we didn’t use this. When the world cup was on, the night staff gave us free beer while we watched the match in the foyer. Loved this place – a great meld of comfort, efficiency and Turkish good cheer in a perfect location.
