This hotel is in an excellent location in the Sultanahmet district in central Istanbul. A short walk to a choice of 2 train stations. Walking to all major attractions and a huge number of restaurants to choose from. BUT the only rooms that have balcony with floor to ceiling windows and door are in the 4th Floor at the front of the hotel consequently they are more noisey. We had a back room which was dark and pokey and smelled of cigarettes but it was quiet.
There is no foyer it is all part of the restaurant on the ground floor and was very cosey with more than one couple checking in at once. The check-in was fine and breakfast was quite good with scrambled eggs an option instead of the usual boiled egg we got everywhere in Turkey. I would stay again but would ask for a Room on the front.
