Booked this hotel for a weekend trip because the reviews were very good. Indeed the service was quite good. Staff are friendly as are most of the Turkish people we have met in Istanbul. The guy at the reception was so nice and he even spent 15 minutes to help us draft up an itinerary.
Our room however was a little bit run down. There was a stench from the bathroom sewage in the room. It was quite bad but after a few minutes our senses become numb anyway. Our room was small as expected. It faces the inner court where loud music can be heard passed midnight.
The hotel is about 10 minutes walk away from the nearest tram stop. Its location is perfect to visit most of the historical places in the old town.More
