Like many people, I booked on the basis of reviews I've read but also worried that the hotel would live up to the expectations - in our view it did.
Arrived (on our free airport transfer) to a very warm welcome at the hotel, with exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable staff who gave the impression that nothing would put them out.
The hotel is fantastically located, all of the old town attractions are around 10 mins walk away and the bridge, ports, tram and rail station are all within 5 mins for anything else you might want to do.
The room was really big and super clean (as was the rest of the hotel including the pool and spa facilities), and on 6th floor we had a lovely little terrace with fantastic views of the new mosque and Topkapi Palace.
Breakfast had lots of variety and the complimentary meze in the afternoons was an added bonus, when we weren't out exploring.
We really enjoyed our stay and would thoroughly recommend this hotel for your break in Istanbul.
