The hotel is located centrally in the Sultanahmet area. About a 10 minute walk up the hill to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The breakfast was good with made to order eggs. The rooms were spacious and clean. Water bottles were provided free of charge as it is ill advised to drink the tap water in Turkey. The staff was very hospitable and tried to make sure we enjoyed our stay.
My only complaint, which was out of the hands of the hotel was that we had loud music playing outside our window until about midnight both nights we were there. We were located on the ground floor and faced the back of the hotel. Make sure you bring ear plugs!
