After completing our circuit of Turkey, our Pacha Tour returned us to this hotel. It was an improvement to the Blackbird. Furnishings were new and shower drains wonderfully. It was near a mosque but for some reason, no prayer calls came from there. The closest tram is Laleli-Universite and was a 10 minute walk to the Grand Bazaar. The neighborhood appears to be a garment wholesale district.
Our triple room was 215, fairly well lit, very small with 1 queen bed and 1 single bed. There was an in room safe which doesn’t appear to be functioning. Bathroom amenities include hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, shower caps and soap. Shower drains well.
Our room faces the front of the hotel. The window was more like a door as it opens completely and you are able to step out onto a little ledge.
Breakfast was the usual breads, salad, cold cut spread with Nescafe coffee machine, diluted juices (OJ, cherry and peach). Warm options were limited. The omelet station wasn’t operating the first morning but on the next morning, when there appears to be a tour group in residence, it was working.
There was a computer in the lobby but unsure if it’s internet-ready. I was told Wi-Fi was free.
