We booked this hotel for 5 nights for our stay in Istanbul. We were quite dissapointed since we had expected the 4 stars hotel not that 2 stars hotel. Otherwise I would not pay that much for this kind of hotel. To reach this hotel from airport by tram is not hard but I would not recommend this hotel if u have a big luggage since u have to walk down the hill and the way back ... of course ... up the hill! If u have only small backpack then it's no problem. Actually the room looked nice, cleaned like the advertising photos and the toilet was also cleaned. We also got some fruits and one red wine on our arrival. Unfortunately it's pretty noisy all the time!!! That has bothered us a lot because we could never expect any single night without noise.!!! They didn't change new towels for us during that 5 days and we got soap, shampoo and conditioner only one time on arrival. Breakfast is on the terrace with the beautiful view of Marmara Sea. But again there were only 4 tables that was not enough for all the guests so u might have to stand if u want to have breakfast there. Not only tables and chairs that were limited in number but also the breakfast itself. There were always small amount of bread and may be 3 pieces of sausages or empty dish of something. Even we were there for 5 days, we had to asked everyday for bread or sausage or egg and I felt that it's kind of uncomfortable to repeat it everyday. First we've asked for sausage the they will go to the shop next door to buy one pack of sausage and come back to cook it. So all the process took such a lot of time. Even we tried once to be there since the start of breakfast, the food there would be enough for only 4 small portions. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is good, not far from Blue Mosque and also close to Grand Bazaar, but keep in mind ... everytime u have to walk up the hill!!! Hope this help :)
