A group of 28 of us stayed here in early October. The rooms are spotless and if anything the sheets and towels are changed too often! The beds are very comfortable. The windows do certainly keep out much of the entertainment noise from the roof terrace but not all. However, by midnight all is quiet. We walked so much we slept through even the early call to prayer from the almost adjacent Blue Mosque! I had asked for a quietly-located room, which didn't quite materialise and the view from the back of the hotel is anything but salubrious. But - the hotel is well-run, the buffet breakfast was always most enjoyable. The squeezing of your own orange juice is the first major bit of exercise of the day, but well worth it! The bar was a peaceful haven at the end of a tiring day and the beer lovely and cold. The roof terrace covered restaurant was atmospheric. The waiting staff were friendly, especially if you could manage a fractured 'thank you' in Turkish. The hotel is well-placed for walking up to the street of restaurants behind where there is a huge choice. I would stay here again - hoping for a better view and quieter location, but it is the hotel of choice for weddings - understandably so.
