We had previously spent some time in Istanbul so when we asked the bride to whose wedding we were invited where we should stay she told us that this hotel was near the venue and a comfortable place for a couple of nights. It was easy to understand that this was previously a "palace" for a very rich individual. We had a room overlooking the Bosphorus. It was adequately furnished in a sort of 1930s way. It was very light and bright as was the bathroom. We arrived quite late but the restaurant was still open and a fine light meal was a pleasure after hours of delay at the airport and through the nightmare that is Istanbul`s traffic. Having only eight or nine rooms the breakfast buffet was adequate as opposed to being lavish but individual requests were pleasantly complied with. The desk staff were very helpful. Apart from the early morning call to prayer from a nearby mosque I can suggest that for somebody who wishes to stay on the Asian side this is as good as it gets with the ferry across the Bosphorus to the Grand Bazaar only a ten minute 10TL cab ride away.
