I stayed here by myself before joining a tour I had booked. I arrived late (about 11.30pm) and was greeted by a very friendly man on receiption. Was provided with a map of the city and given directions on how best to spend my limited time in Istanbul. A porter helped carry my bags to my room and was not interested in a tip.
The only reason I couldn't give this hotel 5 stars is because you aren't allowed to flush toilet paper down the toilet. I know this isn't uncommon for Turkey because of the ageing pipes in some buildings, but it was the only hotel (out of 6 I stayed in Turkey) which had this requirement.
Outside of this the hotel was perfect, very very quiet - infact the only thing I could hear with my windows open was the odd cat meowing yet its only a 5 minute walk to both the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The staff are very friendly and will help with what ever it is you may need. The rooftop has 360 degree views of the city and great comfy bean bags so you can sit and watch the sun set. I had breakfast included and that was amazing as well. I stayed at one other hotel in Istanbul as part of my tour and although being of similiar price, was no comparison to this beautiful hotel.
