We stayed here in August 14 and couldn't ask for a more pleasant and accommodating staff. Booked tours, baths, arranged cabs, accepted deliveries, offered choices for enjoying the old city and Grand Bazaar. Rooms for 3 nights comes with perks such as breakfast, tours by their parent company Neon and airport transfers. These are excellent value and you miss the lines! The guides are very knowledgeable. Over priced night Dinner cruise on Bosphorous is very pretty but disappointing. We didn't cruise as far as material suggested (hovered at bridge) and dinner was trite.The entertainment was energetic. Crew was nice but too many pushy people a& the.grouped dining tables have no views nor intimacy; Smoking is allowed on top deck during entertainment.
Recital welcomed us as established guests. We arrived at 7am and of course no room ready but they invited us to breakfast and sent us up to the roof terrace (with gorgeous views and rattan tables and chairs to sprawl out). Room 404 faces the side street and a carpet warehouse-some street noise from small park. Room was reasonable size, clean but need drawers. Robes and ample toweling and amenities. Excellent location once you figure out the old town streets and the modern tramways!
A truly wonderful mid range boutique hotel . Facade, Lobby and features looked better than most in the old city Sultanhamet. Fancier chain hotels are in Business district and Asia side. We will return.
