Stayed at this hotel (in room number 2101, same building as the receiption) as a single post-cruise night.
We arrived at the Premist at around 8.30am, and we got prompt help with our bags and storage of them until our room was ready (between 1pm to 2pm). When we got back to the hotel at this time, the got our assigned room, helpful tips on a map of the surroundings and hotel and then help with the bags to the room.
The room, a bit on the small side, had lots of nice details, comfortable bed (which was on the softer side but very nice sleep quality for us), a very nice bathroom, water boiler with complementary coffee and tea (oh that apple tea) selections, and also a couple of bottles of water. And yes slippers was also included. :-)
The floor is a wooden covered floor, which was very comfortable, but think that you might cause disturbance to your hotel neighbors if you walk in hard heeled shoes.
The 2101 room is facing the main street, which during our stay was quite busy until at least midnight (since this is a route taken by most taxis and buses going to the old town).
Breakfast served was very nice, mostly continental style with a couple of hot items, cereal, 4-5 different sorts of bread, cheese and fruits and freshly squeezed orange juice and specialty coffee if you wish. You can either sit outside (weather permitting) or inside.
When leaving the hotel we got prompt help with bags and taxi service. :-) Felt really well looked after by the staff. :-)
And yes the hotel is very close to all things touristly, so once we are going back to Istanbul, we would definitely look up Premist again.
