I stayed here in April '14. While the hotel is a mix of updated and dated features (bathrooms were terrific, bedroom slightly dated but clean and comfortable,) the excellent location overcomes any drabness. Located on a side street out of the hubbub of Sultanahment Sq. its super easy to walk to the Square at any time of day to enjoy the major sites - Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and best yet, the Topkapi Gardens. IN April, it was in bloom with the national flower - tulips! It was nice to get up early before the crowds arrived to walk/jog in the Gardens surrounded by walls and well protected from cars. THe hotel location allows you to go back to your sites without feeling you have to make it a major journey. There are hundreds of wonderful little cafes and restaurants to choose from. We had a room that was large, quiet, slight views of the minarets, and as mentioned before, excellent bathrooms. Rooms were very clean, mattresses firm, duvets warm. You will wake up early due to the morning call to prayer at all the nearby mosques. Front staff will do anything to make your stay comfortable. I would stay here again.
