We booked this with a package via BA (2 couples) and really thought from the reviews that this would be a decent 4* hotel, but its not. The location is great - fantastic actually. Walking distance to all the main sights and there are plenty of restaurants nearby to choose from. But the hotel is just average. Upon arrival they had cleared messed up the room allocations and tried to book us out to crappy hotel, a bit of arguing later - room change the next day etc, then we got set. The rooms are average, massive problems with damp in bathrooms and they are tiny. A/c is pretty good when you finally get the remote control. Deco is nice, slightly odd having a mirror around the TV (so you keep seeing yourself?!). Staff are generally nice at the hotel and try to help when they can. The breakfast is also only average and gets boring after a few days being the same. If deal is good, then I would stay again due to the location (and as lets face it - you don't go to Istanbul to sit in a hotel room!). Istanbul is fantastic, love the Asian side and the spice market.
