We find a deal by this hotel so I booked it imediatly thinking about the location and already writed reviews.
From the begining everything was wonderful. They waited for us keeping free the parking place (remember we are inside the walls of Constantinopole). I felt that they know who we are and beside that they recognized us immediatelly as their guests. They paied attention to everyone.
Hotels location is great too. In five minutes walking distance are the Hagi Sofia, Topkapi Pallace and the Blue Mosque as well the Marmara sea wich can be seen from room’s window. The Grand Bazar (a must see) is a quarter of hour away. Walking.
Every evening we ate excelent courses of ottoman cuisine: baclava (it’s a cookie) and kebab (barbeque) cooked inside a pottery wich is smashed in the end with a small sword near your table. The waiters are very handy and polite. Definetly, to they know how to get you seated, to cater and to provide execelent service. I thank to all the hotel's men and women for advice and taking care of us. We had a excelent stay cause of you!
The internet is runing fast so I even watched TV from home.
All in all we had a great stay. If I would go again, I’ll choose the same hotel.
