Just an overnight so it took me awhile to choose a hotel, and I was not to sure about the mixed reviews on TA. We usually stay at another place but rates are so high during the tourist season. But we took a chance.
Checked in and got settled in, no problem, safe was locked upon arrival so had to have the bellman come up to unlock. I was concerned about noise but it was a nice quiet room. We went out to have dinner and returned and went to the roof top where we were greeted by Varush Telo the Guest Relations Mgr. Very nice man, wanted to make sure all was well and assured us that he would take care of any problem that may arise.
The room as small but comfortable. Ac worked pretty well, we were coming from very hot so I was looking forward to spring weather in Istanbul. The shower area was newly remodeled, a lot of marble, nicely done, again, small but nice, the shower, good thing we are not really big or overweight because doubtful you would fit into the shower and get the door closed!
Breakfast in the morning was the usual fair, would've been nice to have fried eggs but this is Turkey and I know they like their Med style food and breads.
The view on the roof top is great. You have a nice unobstructed view of the Blue Mosque and not to much further away is the Hagia Sofia. Both look great lit up at night too. Nice views for dinner for breakfast.
We never did wifi going. The breakfast staff were ok, they need some more training however on customer service and etiquette. Varush can teach them as he has the knowledge. When asked a question their answers were short and brusque, not too friendly.
Overall, a pleasant stay and the price was right. I'd go back
