We stayed here in July for two nights after a cruise. It is an excellent hotel, and an easy walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and Topkapi Palace. We stayed on the first floor facing the ocean. There wasn't much view, but the room was quiet, clean and very comfortable. The rooftop restaurant is amazing-you get great views of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The breakfast buffet is a huge spread-fruits-both fresh and dried, cereals, spices, cheeses, pastries, a few hot dishes, and you can make your own fresh squeezed orange juice! There are many restaurants within walking distance. The staff is very helpful in recommending places and giving directions. It was a very good value, also. We paid about $160 USD per night. I really enjoyed the feeling of being somewhere authentically Turkish, rather than a big US chain. Highly recommended!
