Booked here before and after a trip - room was basic but spotless. Brekky on the upstairs terrace was traditionally turkish - cucumber, tomatoes, olives & 1/2 bread loaf & tea was really yum - staff up here are nice & friendly. As for reception, depending on who you get & what time of day it is rude and not very unhelpful. Close to sights - blue mosque & aya sofia around the corner so expect a morning wake up prayer call at 5am.
