The manager takes such a personal interest in each guest it was unlike anything we expect from service in the states, the breakfast is wonderful, my room had no view but it was only a few blocks to the Blue Mosque, the Hagya Sofia etc. eat at the little places across the street I went to Ceseme ( soup good there and doner ) me and a doner shop a block further by a Turkish delight shop ( great chicken ), go to te wine shop across the street for a great bottle of cheap Cabernet, the wine dealer won't steer you wrong, cant say enough about Omar the front desk, it is like being in some living room and you have the perfect host. Examples, my plane left early, he arranged for an early breakfast plate to be ready and waiting, helped me with a luggage problem, arranged a guide, always tea and cookies , free wifi. Only negative was the night porter fell asleep and forgot my wake up call but the breakfast man did not so I didnt need .
