We stayed here for a week and found that we were well cared for from the minute we entered the hotel! A small old hotel which is decorated in the traditional Ottoman style, the room (we opted for a superior suite) was lovely, nicely decorated, small balcony and a good sized ensuite.
Food at the hotel is very good, but there are loads of restaurants nearby so you don't have to eat in all the time, they have a coffee machine and freshly baked cookies in the seating area of the hotel, these are available all the time, a nice touch. The Manager Selcuk was so friendly and helpful, he went through maps with us and told us how to get to various places, he was always there if you needed help, always happy and smiling.
We would recommend this hotel, and would stay again, not only was our stay exceptional but it's also ideally situated in the Sultanahmet area, walking distance to all the main sights and for anywhere else the tram system is very easy to use. Oh and the black and white cat who comes round to say hello now and then was so sweet!
