I think this is the same hotel as the photo of the looks the same. But did not book through trip advisor. It has a large amethyst on the reception desk which is clear in the hotel photos.
Thehotel isin Fatih quite ordinary from the outside. In quite a commercial area with alot of russian speakers. So if you are from russia or Ukraine you will feel comfortable as some of the waiter sunderstand and speak russian. The resturant in basement serves good food and waiters are very helpful.
Breakfast on mezzanine floor is excellent. My only complaint would be the juices are artificial with so many fresh fruits available it would be possible to provide fresh juice. I booked a junior suite which was spacious and well appointed. A spa bath which worked well was also a bonus. Room service was prompt and accurate. If like me you like to relax with a film after a hectic day and evening you will be disappointed channels are quite limited. The star of the hotel is the indoor fairy grotto pool.quite amazing clean romantic along with sauna. A definate must to visit. But does not open untill 11 am. So no early morning swims. Unusually for istanbul most prices are in US dollar and as it is a commercial area difficult to buy single items.
but not so far from town and plenty of taxi. But they dont use a meter cost is around 25 tl depending where you go.
Hotel is good value for money based on current exchange rates. When the TL stengthens then I think you can get better value
