This was our first visit to Turkey and Sirkeci Mansion was our first stop throughout the country. After checking in we had a great reception in the lobby with where we were given a glass of wine and a gracious overview of their great city. I was first expecting this to be a "sell" for tours (as I have experienced in Mexico and other places), but it was just a warm expression of their hospitality to give us their advice about getting around the city.
The service and staff at every point (reception, breakfast, cleaning, making tour reservations, etc.) was the very best of any hotel I have been in.More
