This hotel met our expectations after reading reviews, yes you can believe the reviews. The staff, especially the guest relations and reception area people were extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. The afternoon tea and what to do briefing were nice touches. The rooms are not generous(we had superior room which we recommend) but adequate and smart and everything you expect is there ie tea/coffee facilities, bath robes, pillow menu. Location is excellent for sightseeing, very close to main places of interest and Bosphorus ferries. The food in the hotel restaurant was good and better value than other places we tried(eg Amendros) and it was also good in the family restaurant. If you book through the hotel website, the discount for cash, discount for family restaurant, reduced transfer and dinner offer made it better value for money. We had a massage in the hotels spa area which was excellent and very relaxing.
We took the Airport shuttle bus back to the airport for 10 Euros each(stall outside Haghia Sophia) which was excellent value.
