Stayed here for four nights with two friends. The hotel is beautiful in a very convenient area near the tram (which takes you to all the biggest sites in Istanbul and is safe and easy to use) and the major pedestrian street of Istiklal Caddesi (which is admittedly up a VERY steep walk uphill). There are also a number of trendy and chic bars and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel.
Our room was large (enormous by European standards) and very comfortable. The bathroom was similarly well appointed. The staff were extraordinarily polite and eager to help (especially the night concierge and the man who ran breakfast). The view from breakfast is also extraordinary over Istanbul.
Our only complaint was that a few requests made went unfulfilled at first, but were usually taken care of after a reminder (when possible).
But in total we were all completely wowed by the experience.
