I stayed here for 05-nights (20 to 25-Feb'13). I was returning from Germany and Istanbul was a transit I used for sight seeing. The positives : Rooms were clean, location very good, conveniently located within walking distance from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofiya, Grand Bazaar and the Topkapi Palace. Around 15 kms. from Ataturk Airport and 50 Kms. from Sabiha Gokcen Airport. Room service was very prompt. Wi-fi was excellent. Sauna, Massage & Hammam (Turkish Bath) all available in the hotel. I took the Hammam and was happy with the service quality.
The negatives : The rooms are small. The view from the room is nothing to talk about. Your shuttle Bus cannot come to the horel doorstep. You will need to walk around 150 metres to board the bus or reach the hotel from the bus. My airport drop was scheduled to arrive at 14 Hrs. and hence I had requested for a check-out at 13.30 Hrs. Check-out time is 12 noon. Though there was no booking for my room (Room No. 101) on 25-Feb'13, yet, I was told to vacate the room by 13.00 Hrs. Inspite of staying for 05-nights, I was not allowed even a 90 minute extension. This is definitely not hospitality. I felt like the lady at the reception "Ms. Suzan" worked with a severe "no concern" attitude. This experience left a dark spot on my visit, which was otherwise good.
