I was surprised to read a prior review that used the word "spacious" to describe the rooms. Of course, I didn't stay in every room on the property, but was with a family with two other rooms and saw theirs, as well. The rooms are nice, mostly clean, well appointed with modern appliances and decor, but if you're traveling heavy and have a couple of bags they will end up on the floor and will be side-stepping and hopping over bags with not much room to spare. None or minimal shelf space in bathroom for traveling toiletries. The outside noise is for real, the walls and windows are seemingly paper thin. For the frequent traveler, these are minor inconveniences. I did notice another review mention staff impatience with a language barrier. Shortly after this episode, we were in the breakfast restaurant and we learned that the management of this place is completely separate from The Haze hotel management and ownership. When we shared our experience with the male front desk attendant, three of the waiters and bartenders got a chuckle and agreed that this was not an uncommon experience. We found two friendly and patient female attendants at the desk, but one rather impatient male attendant. Overall, we found the staff to be friendly and helpful. It's in a good location to several restaurants and shops and an ATM. Excellent beds, great shower. Great breakfast spread in the morning. We did have a toilet that ran after being flushed and had to call the front desk each time. If I were going back to Istanbul, my experience with The Haze was not so bad that I'd risk gambling on another location. It was pleasant enough, and a rate competitive enough, to go back.
