Seeing it's location on a quiet side street in a neighborhood looking rather "gritty" gave us pause, but upon seeing our room 21 facing the back, all new and spacious and bright and light (the largest bathroom window I have EVER seen!!) with great art and accessories, Nespresso coffee machine and more, and waking up to breakfast with cooked eggs and cappucino on request at that gorgeous glass-enclosed terrace looking over and down to the river.........it was terrific.
Nural very helpful with questions and suggestions and Faud in the breakfast room also exceptionally courteous.
HIghly recommending;; but walking from there either down a hill several long blocks to the tram, or up a steep hill to the pedestrian Istiklal street, is not for the feint of hear!!!!
