The hotel is centrally located by the Cistern, Topkapi, Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sofia. You can't really ask for a more central location from a purely tourist perspective. Like most of the hotels in that area, the rooms are very small and the hotel is a bit dated. There is a free breakfast included, as with all hotels in Istanbul, but the breakfast was just ok. The best part of hotel is undoubtedly it's roofdeck with views--the saving grace. However, it looks over onto some construction that could be cleaned up. I guess if you are on a budget and need a central stay, it's fine. Customer service was lackluster, but again, it was a budget hotel.
