First of all, this hotel is all about location, location, location. We were within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. Grand Bazaar, Basilica Sistern, Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Spice Market, waterfront, etc. All within a 15 minute walk, which was important to us.
Secondly, the included breakfast spread was very, very nice. Great quality; lots of fresh eggs, cheeses, pastries, jams, etc.
Last, but certainly not least, the staff was extremely friendly. We had 3 kids with us, and the entire experience could not have been nicer. Incredibly thoughtful, kind people.
The only negative I can think of it that the beds were firm. Some people prefer firm beds. Others do not.
Overall, great experience. Thank you Tashkonak. I recommend this hotel highly and would easily stay here again. Tremendous value / bang for the buck.
