We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 day stay. The staff was the best of any hotel we have stayed at - welcoming, friendly, efficient and helpful at every turn.
The location is great for a tourist - near all major sites and a 1/2 block from the tram stop which goes to all more distant areas.
Our room on an upper floor overlooked Gulhane Park next to Topkapi Palace.
Breakfast was very nice including many choices - and something we had never seen before - honey served in a honeycomb.
The complimentary tour that we took - back of the bazaar - took us behind the grand bazaar to see the workings of some of the vendors of supplies and services (ours was the jewelry making process). Also as we walked on the streets near the bazaar we received an explanation of some of the customs that are prevalent among the populace. That tour was one of the highlights of our trip. And unlike every other tour we had in Turkey, no one tried offered or tried to sell us anything.
Their restaurant recommendations were spot on.
Special Kudos and Thanks to Okay
