I booked here because needed a hotel in Istanbul at very short notice and everything else was too expensive. It normally stay at rather more upmarket hotels, so was a little worried when I arrived.
But the stay was fine. I had a very large family room to myself, with a balcony with an excellent view. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is near the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, so ideal if you are on vacation.
I booked an airport transfer via the hotel and was met by a very comfortable mini-bus which had a fridge with cold drinks. Would be a particularly good option if travelling with a group.
My main criticism was that the room itself was rather scruffy and clearly hadn't been redecorated or refurnished for many years. This is the reason I only rank the hotel as "Average" and why I wouldn't recommend it to a friend.
