I stayed here at the beginning of July - from the 2nd to the 6th. First of all, it is true that they don't speak very good English. But then, this is Istanbul, not the UK so I really don't care about that (PS, please enjoy the delicious irony of the review two below mine and the guy that clearly lacks English skills moaning at the hotel for their lack of the same English skills)
My room was clean, cleaned every single day except the one where I slept late and didn't let the cleaner in. The bathroom was spotless and the shower amazing. The evening staff at reception, in the restaurant and behind the bar were friendly and welcoming and if the daytime staff had matched their enthusiasm and friendliness this review would probably be a lot better.
The location was convenient and easy - plenty of retaurants and bars within a five minute walk and only 20 minutes, via the Grand Bazaar, to the Blue Mosque etc.
Beds were very comfortable. Definite plus side.
How does me having 2 beers at 3 Euros each and 4 bottles of water at 2 Euros each from my mini-bar come to a grand total of 46 Euros??? Tried to argue but in the end I paid for a lot more than I had used. Breakfast was pants in an epic way, with juice that tasted more like undiluted cordial than anything else.
Overall, the bad points were incredibly minor until it came time to check out. 46 Euros is not a massive problem but it says a lot about this hotel when they rip off their own guests.
