Stayed here for a short four-day citytrip, room on the fifth floor (Hammam style). While most Turkish hotels and restaurants give the uneasy feeling of being "overly friendly" for commercial reasons, at least these guys give you the feeling it's genuine and they enjoy looking afer you.
The hotel itself is on the smaller side, and part of a chain of two or three hotels in the same area (they also share the pool and fitness downstairs). From check-in to check-out, everything is done with a smile and friendeliness.
Our room was spacious, both bathroom and sleeping accomodation. The breakfast buffet is sufficient, they try to do it a bit continental style but a rather limited choice of things. The restaurant on top (Olive) is above par when it comes to service, the food itself is good and very tasty but not Michelin-star quality. Nevertheless, I would recommend for one evening. The city offers too much taste and options to only eat in.
The one downside are the trips you can book through the hotel (not the hotel's fault, but the company hosting the trips). We took the full day tour, worst tour ever. They rush you to all the landmarks, you have little time to absorb or ask questions. Felt like an Asian tourist who only have time to take pictures and then move on.
Location wise you could not ask for better. In walking distance of all major landmarks, also close to tram and taxi stops.
