This was our second stay at this hotel in Istanbul, for a stay of 5 nights whilst on a 3 week holiday in Turkey. We chose this hotel again because of its excellent location in Istanbul for accessing the public transport links in the city. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the Aksaray Metro stop when coming to/from Ataturk Airport. It is also adjacent to a tram stop which takes you into Sultanhamet and other city locations. The hotel itself is a basic business-class hotel offering clean rooms (cleaned daily), spacious bathrooms and a decent buffet breakfast. Having travelled around Turkey, we found the breakfast offered a wider selection than other hotels including a hot dish, yoghurt, a cereal, fresh bread, cakes, plus the ubiquitous cucumber, tomato, olives, watermelon, meats, cheeses and jams/honey. Drinks offered included a selection of teas, instant coffee, squash or milk. If you want to see the city from a convenient location at a reasonable price (100YTL/£40 prpn), this hotel is ideal. However, if you want the ambience of a romantic getaway then we would suggest you look elsewhere.
