This hotel offers modern conveniences within the luxurious atmosphere of an old palace. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. For example, several days before I was to check in, they were willing to receive my lost luggage and hold it for me till I arrived. The concierge helped me call Air France to report damage to my luggage; he also suggested other places to visit in Turkey and offered to make introductions to people he knew there.
Breakfasts are amazing, served buffet style, comprising everything from soup and hot entrees to salads to fresh fruit to cereal to pastries. You can't imagine how lavish the spread is, which obviates any need to eat until dinner time. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the beds very comfortable.
The location of the hotel is within walking distance of many sites: University of Istbanbul-Laleli, the Grand Bazaar, historic mosques (Blue, Suleymanye), and Topkapi Palace.More
