We just spent a week here, a third time visiting Istanbul and a third time staying at this hotel. We love it. Except for climbing the spiral stairs, I can only say good things. Note that you don't have to carry your luggage up these stairs, they will carry it for you, but if you have trouble climbing its not your best choice. The street can be noisy sometimes as noted by another reviewer, but the double windows very effectively block it, and we've never been bothered by street noise. They have a lovely rooftop terrace with a great view of the water. The included breakfasts in the garden are a highlight of our day. There are multiple restaurants nearby (but avoid the Alaturk Fish House across the street-see the restaurant reviews), and the major attractions are within short walking distance. The location is also very convenient to the Ataturk Airport. WIFI is included, and the room rates are very reasonable. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, and make you feel very much at home there. If you like small hotels with a lot of charm, this is your place.
