The service at this hotel was excellent and the staff were very friendly and obliging. I loved the breakfast and looked forward to it every morning.The hotel's location is ideal because it is walking distance from all the main tourist attractions. Topkapi Palace is a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. The Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque are about a 10-15 minute walk away. The walls in this hotel are thin and while the furnishings are tired and the rooms are small, I would definitely stay here again. Bring ear plugs in case your room faces the restaurant area.
