Reviewed 4 January 2014

1. Views from the room are terrible but the location to transit and attractions is great.
2. The room is small, but it warms quickly and you can take a nice hot shower for as long as you wish.
3. The wi-fi is free but it SUCKS!!!!
4. The cost is affordable but that means your neighbors can afford to bring their children which you have to listen too through the walls until they go to sleep.
5. Breakfast is included with your stay. It's okay.
6. The beds are hard as a rock. I stayed in two rooms and the bed was uncomfortable in both.

Very small and old fashion lobby. Room is ok modern but the carpet needs upgrading. There's no wi fi in the room so a lot of guests just sit in the small lobby with their phones and iPads to use the net. The lounges in the lobby look like they have been there since the 80's, could do with some new furniture, or how about fixing the wifi in the room so there's less traffic in the lobby?!

We found this hotel to have comfortable, clean rooms and to be conveniently located for our purposes. The hotel staff was friendly, and the hotel restaurant provided a good meal and good service for the night we chose not to go out on the town. The complimentary breakfast provided many options for a hearty start to the day and the buffet was always full, with hot foods hot and cold foods cold. Though not in the heart of the touristy area, it was only a few blocks from the metro station and within walking distance of the Grand Bazaar and there were many decent restaurants in the neighborhood. The hotel itself was quiet. Some might be disconcerted by the street noise. We understood that we were sleeping in a working city and adjusted to it--even opening the window to enjoy the call to prayer, night air, and sounds of Istanbul. The room was quite large enough for two, and always nicely made up with a very clean bathroom.

This hotel has a good location and friendly service. The hotel pool on the roof is a nice addition, especially after walking around hot Istanbul. It's a bit pricey but when comparing other options, I found that there was a massive price difference between Istanbul and the rest of Turkey. However, nice place, comfortable and fairly quiet.

This hotel is well located close to the Grand Bazaar, The rooms are a good size. There is a small outdoor pool great for relaxing. The sauna, steam room and indoor pool are free to use for guests unlike many other hotels whiich charge for these facilities. The hotel restaurant serves great food at reasonable prices.

The hotel is located not too far from the old town, maybe a 20 minute walk. Otherwise you can use the nearby metro stations of Aksaray or Laleli to go there. If you don't have too much luggage you can reach the hotel by metro from the airport down to Aksaray metro station. Nearby there are many good and not touristy restaurants, the area is mostly for garments wholesalers who export to nearby countries with many such business people using the hotel. The hotel itself has a very good restaurant. What I did not like about the hotel is the fact that the lift was always having problems and oftentimes had problems while people were inside, thanks God for the emergency safety landing was operating. Also, the rooms did not have good blanket and with AC on I felt very cold at night. The people there are not very friendly but at least the recepreception was honest. Breakfast was generally good.

The roof top pool is big enough to have a quick swim and the surrounding area great for sunbathing. There is an attendant who does drinks and meals. The indoor pool is next to the hot room and steam room which are free. It is located close to the Grand bazaar and 3 tram stops from the Hagia Sophia and spice bazaar. The breakfast is filling with cereal, fruit, great pastries and tea. Some warm food such as scrambled egg and sliced salami which was not as good. I think the reception staff were good but their English is limited. When they understood they were very polite and helpful. Air conditioning is good. The beds are extremely orthopaedic.

Room Tip: The 6th floor rooms are good for the roof top pool.
