We stayed twice at the Sphendon at the beginning and end of our holiday. The rooms are small but very clean and adequately furnished with all you need including a safe, flat screen tv and a kettle. We found this family run hotel to be friendly and especially helpful in accommodating an early check in. The reception area has comfortable sofas and is well heated during the winter. We found the Turkish breakfast to be excellent and enjoyed the egg dishes, bread and cheeses. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and pleasant. The location is superb - within walking distance of the Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque and Haga Sophia. The beds were comfortable and the area was quiet at night. You can hear the Mezzuein just before 6am but it doesn't go on for long and is quite atmospheric.
