Service is a 5 star: with whomever you spoke with there, they approached to you with smile and helpful advices and actions. They speak good English too.
Room is good and clean, normal size (double bedroom). There is a TV, hair dryer, safe, coffee, tea, kettle and FREE bottle of water everyday! Room was cleaned everyday too. I loved the fact that there is scale in the room, so you can weigh your luggage. The bed was so soft and comfortable.
During the day there is lots of sunlight coming through the big windows, but the lights in the room aren't really good (lamps). It takes a while for the lights to go from dim light to a normal light. This is especially the case in the toilet. Another thing I disliked was the glass doors that separates the toilet from the room, so basically you could hear whatever someone's doing over there. However, the shower cabin is great! It's big and water stream is perfect. There are all necessary products for showering, shower cap, and towels.
Breakfast is nice, there is some warm food which changes everyday (eggs, turkish pies, sausages, etc.), variety of cheeses, lots of juices, fresh yoghurt, cornflakes, etc. Coffee and tea as well.
Location is great. It is just 5 min from the Taksim square and the main street which leads you to Sultanahmet area.
Overall, the hotel is very good, service even better. Recommended.
