....but the room left a bit to be desired. I suppose in terms of the space available in the old town of Istanbul it wasn't bad, we didn't expect some massive room, but the first couple of nights we stayed there we were in some weird L shaped twin room that had the beds at right angles to each other and no room for suitcases.
When we returned there after touring Turkey for 3 weeks, we asked for a double room, which was much better. More spacious, but even then there was a big hole in the wall that had cardboard or something taped over it.
The rooms were clean enough, but a bit bleak. It has a lot of potential, and could improve with some TLC.
You couldn't stay in a better location, but possibly could pick a better hotel.
Realistically in Istanbul, all you do is sleep there, as we were out all day and most of the night, and its adequate to just sleep there.
The breakfast was a bit of a highlight though. A beautiful open rooftop terrace, with a good selection of food.
Good value for money if breakfast is included, but just a place to drop at night.
