I stayed at the Apex Hotel from 30 April - 5 May with my brother. The hotel is a quaint small boutique hotel and has real character. If you want 4-5 star this may not be the place for you, but if, like me, you prefer hotels with some "local" character and none of the anonymity of the big chains, this is the place for you. Fantastically friendly and helpful staff who are more than willing to help out with maps, taxis (including free pickup from the airport!) and recommend and book local restaurants/tours, particularly Ibraham who just could not have done more to make our stay a truly wonderful experience. Free wireless Internet is also a nice touch. Rooms and bathroom facilities obviously old and small, but very clean and, once again, full of character and hugely comfortable beds. :o) Rooms included "cablo TV" and mini bar - and bathroom has hairdryer. Breakfast is included up on the roof terrace with fabulous view of the blue mosque -breakfast is basic but has everything you need. Located absolutely in the thick of things it is only minutes walk from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and Topkapi. Other sights easy to reach using the tram, which can be caught near Hagia Sofia. Plenty of good restaurants nearby and Ibraham happy to recommend more. We had great meals at Blue Turquoise and FAMILY - both in AKBIYIK caddessi just around the corner. I can't recommend this place enough - GREAT value for money, GREAT location and GREAT staff. Will definitely be my port of call if I find myself in Istanbul again! :o)
