We spent six nights at this hotel: our deluxe room 1405, with balcony, overlooked Gulhane Park, with its active birdlife including green parrots. All staff (reception,breakfast room and room cleaners), were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent, with a wide choice of hot and cold dishes which were varied each day.The freshly baked bread and pastries were very tempting. Wi-fi was excellent and we appreciated the there were coffee-making facilities in the room. The hotel is located close to places of interest, but the area is quiet as the road is partially closed to traffic.
