I stayed 4 nights at this hotel. It made a good impression. Tastefully designed interiors, nice smell, large and comfortable room with everything needed in it, great beds, great sea view, discrete and helpful staff. Location is very good, from the window it looks as if you're somewhere outside the city but in fact you're right in the center of the old part of the town, with a 7 minutes walk to Istanbul's most important historical monuments.The street in front of the hotel is very active and often crowded, but I didn't find the noise too big. In fact, the hotel is not directly on the street, there were 20-30 meters from our window. However, we got scared by the voice of a muezzin from a mosque nearby, probably the Blue Mosque, who woke us up at 6.00 a.m. with his morning song.
In case you come by car, they have a generous and free parking place so again a good choice.
All in all if you're not on budget it's a hotel worth your short list for your next visit to Istanbul.
