The location is perfect. Walk one way you get to Aya Sofia, The Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Basilica Cistern. Walk another to get to the Grand Bazaar and the Spice Bazaar. Walk a third to view the Bosphorus and take a ferry to Taskim or the Asian side of Istanbul. All very easy, pleasant walks. The hotel staff was very nice, no issues there. The breakfast was okay. Nothing to brag about, but feeds you until you can go get real Turkish food :) The bathroom was very clean and new. Rooms are small, but we were prepared for that. Cannot beat the price for what you get!
