We enjoyed our trip to Istanbul. The hotel is nicely decorated, and in a fantastic location for seeing the Older part of Istanbul. The room was very clean, and fairly well maintained. The shower head in our room was broken. The wireless was included, however it didn't work in the room we were in (not a big deal to us, we didn't really care.) The location is wonderful, the staff is fairly good.. they were not over the top excellent, but they were decent and did not steer us wrong. All and all it was a pretty average room, in a pretty average hotel. The bed was a bit hard, and it got chilly at night, and I wanted to throw an extra blanket on the bed but was unable to as there was no blanket available. They did provide a nice robe and a pair of slippers for use which was nice, and appreciated. Keep in mind the shuttle to the airport each way is 25 euro... not a LOT in terms of price but when you are paying for everything else in lira it was a little irritating that they insisted on charging in euro. All and all, it was a pretty nice place, and I would recommend it to someone who was travelling on a budget. Regardless of where you stay in Istanbul you will hear the morning call to prayer, but maybe staying a little farther away from the big mosques is advisable if you are a light sleeper. (it woke us up a few times, but we were able to go back to bed.) The breakfast in the morning was ok, we didn't mind it, we are used to the limited EU buffets now after living in Europe for so long, however I was a little bummed we couldn't get a cup of Turkish coffee or Turkish apple tea with breakfast.
