We wanted to stay at the Sebnem in 2010 but I waited too long to book. This year I booked early for a garden room, but waited too long to book for the first part and had a regular double. The double was nice with wood floors, flat screen and good free wifi. However, I will be sorry I wrote this review when I am unable to book the garden room. It was amazing! In addition to the above, there was a small garden with a table and chairs and a leather couch under cover with an overhead heater. (This was mid October which was unusually cold and rainy). I will book this room for next year.
Yes, some of the bathrooms are small, but they are impeccably clean as are the rooms.
The staff is very accommodating I had organized a group of 6 friends and friends of friends to travel. Part of the group was running in the Istanbul Marathon races. We needed to be at the buses by 7:15am. Breakfast started at 8AM, but the staff had coffee for us at 6:30am on race day.
The location is perfect. Walking distance to the Blue Mosque and off the main street with restaurants for all budgets and taste.
The upstairs terrace has inside and outside facing the sea. During the rainy days, it was cozy and pleasant.
