me and my partner stayed there 2 nights. the best 2 things about this hotel are: 1. the view from the terrace and 2. interesting design of the hotel. that's it. when taxi driver brought us to the hotel, I told him: "you must be joking. it cannot be here!" but unfortunately for us, it was there. during the darkness you cannot see all the dirt and devastation which surrounds the hotel. when in the morning I opened the curtains and saw the view, I was nearly to cry. another thing which upset me is that our room wasn't cleaned at all. on the next morning when we checked out, I asked the receptionist why our room wasn't cleaned. and I had a ridiculous answer :" you had the key from the room with you." I worked in the hotels 4 years - starting from cleaner and finishing with reception and I know what kind of services must be done in the hotels. and it doesn't matter how many stars hotel is. there is a master key, which can open every single room in hotel and cleaners usually have them. the prices for the rooms are overated. the location is terrible and unsafe. if you never been in Istanbul before, it's very easy to be lost in the area, where hotel is. my advice: book a hotel in Sultanahmet area - prices are more or less the same, but hotels are much better - we saw a few of them when we looked for a hotel to move.
