We spent four days in Istanbul at the Ersu and to be honest once we checked in and went to our room our first thought was to get another hotel. We decided to stay the night to give it a fair chance. We did end up staying the duration of our visit. If it would not have been such a convenient location we would have moved on. The reason for the 3 rating is because of the location otherwise a 2. You are within walking distance to many of the sites and there are plenty of restaurants around all attempting to seduce you into their establishment.
Rooms are small which I guess is to be expected in the older part of the city, but they are in need of some TLC. Small bathroom, no bar of soap, shampoo, conditioner, nothing and the towels all need to be replaced. There was no holder for the TP either. The hotel did offer a breakfast with our stay but after day 2 that became boring. Some fruit would have gone a long way to improving the buffet.
Would I go back? No. Even though the price is reasonable I think I could find something a bit more upscale for just a little more $$$.More
