I had email contact with the Manager Okan Ayvatas before we flew to Istanbul and state my request for a room and airport transfer. i would say he is very professional and tried his best to grant my request and everything went very smoothly including airport pick up and return transfer. the moment we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by Murat and told us that our room is ready and serve us a welcome drink and gave us a map of Istanbul and some important information about the city.
Our room was exactly what i requested a twin bed and a view to the sea of Marmara on the highest floor. room is very clean with a mini bar and coffee making facilities. Aircondition was working well which you can also regulate to your desired temperature. toilet and bath is clean with necessary toiletries which you will find in a four star hotel. room was cleaned everyday and the towel were change , the size of the room and bathroom is not really that large but just enough for two people to move around , to think this is small family hotel with excellent service. Wifi was working perfectly everywhere in the house with our smart phone.
Breakfast is really good , you have everything you need for to start your day. i have to mention an occassion where they really did their best for the guest. the breakfast normally start at 8 am but since we had a tour the next day that start at 8:15 we requested for an early breakfast at 7:45 if possible so we wont be rushing to catch our Bus, so we went for breakfast and there was already warm sausages and eggs ready for us, i would say the personnel will go out of their way to please their guest and they are always happy to help with a smile in their faces not just superficial smiles but you can feel it really comes from the heart with an honest intention.
we had a million dollar view to the blue Mosque and the Marmara sea every morning at the breakfast terrace. attention! if you are having breakfast at the open terrace do not leave your food unattended because the Sea Gull will snap your food and fly away laughing at you. we had this funny experience one morning and i thought i have to warn the other guest so they will be aware of it.
Hotel location: it is near all tourist attractions in Sultanahmet , all walking distance to Blue Mosque, Haghia Sophia, Topkapi, Basilica Cistern and Grand Bazaar.
i would like to thank all the personnel of this lovely hotel from cleaning staff to the manager for making our visit to Istanbul a very successful one and looking forward to see you again in our next visit to this beautiful city.
