The location of the hotel is very close to the sites in the old district. There are many cafes around and small markets. The hotel is on quite a sloped hill, so if you are not steady on your feet, maybe stay away. We arrived at the hotel to a very hot room with the window open, it was November and only 55 F degrees out, so it shouldn't have been that hot. we told the front desk, they came up to look at the air system, and ended up telling us, that there is no air conditioning in the hotel, so we just had to leave the window open. so we went out and left the window open, returned some hours later and the room was still hot. they agreed to switch us rooms. so we were moved to the first floor, where it is loud, and to a smaller room without tea kettle and tub as in our first room. however it was quite cool in there. the breakfast they served was not really our cup of tea. the front desk staff recommended and booked a horrible half day bosphorus tour for us. the only other recommendations we could get out of the front desk were from whatever random pamphlet they pulled from behind them. not really anything good on restaurants in the area. in fact, they seemed rather against us doing anything in the area, as it's all touristy. well we are tourists, so we didn't have a problem with it. anyway, some may like the hotel, it's clean, and close to attractions, but it left something to be desired in the service department.
