Normally I don't write reviews on TripAdvisor, but I was inclined to do so because of the help that we received during our trip to Istanbul.
The staff were very friendly, and incredibly helpful. My wife and I were vacationing with her family, and in a bit of a rush on our departure day (to Greece) I left my keys in the bedstand. Mehmet, the general manager, was so helpful in getting my keys to me (eventually shipping them to my home in the U.S.) and managed to do so in a very expedited way.
The continental breakfast was very good, and I highly recommend breakfast on the rooftop terrace! Some of my favorite pictures of the trip came from that rooftop. The rooftop view of the Blue Mosque and the nearby bay were amazing (the Blue Mosque is strikingly close in location)!
The hotel was quaint and small, much more of a traditional and friendly atmosphere than a bigger chain hotel. Highly recommended! You don't have to strain too hard to listen for the call to prayer :)More
