The good things first.
Neat and clean, exclusive location, very close to the main attractions Hagia Sophia and the blue mosque. The reception is very cooperative and is always trying to be helpful. Secluded street and quite and peaceful locality. Breakfast not bad, though the arrangement is quiet basic. Don't expect elaborate stuff, but that's ok considering the price.
The bad things.
The room could do with a little renovation. Room sizes are quite small with even smaller bathrooms. But that shouldn't matter really, coz the beauty is outside. But yes renovation is a must. The wall finishes are quite old. There was one scary experience though. When we came back in the evening after our day out, we were told that our rooms have been shifted due to some leakage problem. We were quite unnerved, because all out stuff had been shifted to this new room without our permission and we had left quite a few stuff unpacked. There was nothing valuable, but this is the last thing that you need to experience on a foreign trip, first day. We had a harrowing time trying to recollect if everything was shifted and that we were missing anything. I would advice the hotel management to refrain doing such things even if they consider it for their clients betterment. We lost a lot of confidence due to this one act.
