I booked this hotel based on the TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. Traveling alone, my #1 priority was finding somewhere I felt safe and this hotel definitely met that description. It's location is central, less than a 5min walk to the Blue Mosque, but still very secure.
The hotel felt really homely and had much more atmosphere and character than a bigger hotel. The reception was nice and bright and if you don't want to bring your laptop, there is a Macbook for customer use. It was also one of the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in. My room was serviced daily, and the linen and towels were always crisp and white. I booked a standard double room, which had a jacuzzi in the bathroom, a small kitchen (free tea and coffee facilities, but you have to pay for the water and cola in the fridge), television, sofa bed, hairdryer, slippers, air-conditioning (though I didn't need it in January!), ironing facilities, safe and extra blankets and pillows. I would give Ada Hotel 10 out of 10 for comfort and cleanliness.
The staff were very nice and friendly, the girls in the breakfast room especially. Breakfast itself was also very good. There was a good selection of hot and cold foods...very tasty! The view from the breakfast room was one of the highlights, as it overlooks the sea. Though there is no restaurant in the hotel, its central location means there are loads of restaurants literally on your doorstep (I'd strongly recommend Denizen Coffee for lunch and a good Turkish coffee).
Thanks to all the staff at Ada Hotel for such a pleasant stay. If I ever go to Istanbul in future, I'll definitely stay here again.
