I should have written this 4 years ago when we stayed but I thought I'd share it now anyway. My wife, now, and I became engaged in this Hotel. It was a mixture of old time Turkey romanticism and new future memories. So easy also to make friends with the fantastic staff. From Martine in the bar practising his best English to the manager who also loved to stop and talk In our native language, we loved every second. Fresh well appointed rooms, roomy shower area, great breakfast selection. Nothing was a problem. Central and easy to find your way around Istanbul from this Hotel, simply makes you feel at home.The hotel arrange excursions and, as it was New Years, we decided the Sultanas Ball was for us. A bit pricey at the time, 450 Euros, but the night, the people [from all over the world, each given their flag of origin to show off at your table], the 5 course meal, the complimentary drinks, all made for said future memories. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the Grand Bazaar with it's myriad of cavernous tunnels and shops, you can lose yourself for days easily. Many Hotels and restaurants in the area also. So many things to do so little time is a saying many would comment when leaving this historic city of 12.5 million plus. All in all, we'll be back to this Hotel one day and we will look forward to the stay again. Tops!
