We stayed here Monday to Friday in February 2014. The hotel is easy to find, just a 5 minute walk to the Blue Mosque/central Sultanahmet area. Some good restaurants and shops round and about.
The room, on the 2nd floor (202) was fine - good king size bed, nicely appointed bathroom, opeining window onto a quiet side street. Decent lighting options. Kettle, complimentary tea. Plenty of power sockets. A well-stocked minibar available (prices on a par with others in any city). Room service menu a bit lacking and not 24 hours (apart from drinks).
2 lifts, both working. However, steps into hotel lobby, and to get to our bedroom, so beware if you have mobility issues. Staff very friendly - the manager greeted us on return from every trip.
We ate in the roof top restaurant - the food was fantastic - a great range of local kebab specialties - I had the steak kebab, husband had the turkish special kebab. Recommend Kunefe for dessert!
They are improving/relaying the paths and roads in the area, so we were walking over rubble some of the time. However, they seemed to be progressing well and I would imagine it will all be completed in the next few weeks.
