When I booked this hotel I made sure I sent a message explaining that we'd be arriving at 5am so I had booked the night prior as well. When we got there they told us they thought we weren't coming and we were lucky they hadn't give our room away because everywhere in Istanbul was full that night. It then took 20 mins of explaining the arrival time and booking of the extra night because of it before we finally got to our room.
The window was wide open, the room was freezing and the bathroom was dirty and smelt bad.
In the mornings the walls were wet with condensation and the bathroom was right next to the breakfast room so the smell of eggs came through the air vent and made the whole room smell like eggs.
Breakfast wasn't very good and when we ordered eggs they didn't make them for us.
On the upside it was quite cheap and right next to the Blue Mosque.
