The hotel room was very clean and comfy. Room service was great too. You can have all kinds of tasty foods from breakfast buffet, but I would liked to see more Turkish foods on the table. The staff were very friendly and helpful but unfortunately the only English speaking person on the staff was the chef! The manager speaks English well but she is not always there so if you need any special service or help, you have to either use a few Turkish words, or use hand and body gestures. Overall, communication with the staff can be a little disappointing. I had a little problem with the noise from outside and the rooms nearby but you get used to it after a day o two. The A/C also works fine.
The location of the hotel is perfect for solo travelers but can be a little crowded for families. It is right at the center of the city where there are many restaurants such as famous fast foods and Turkish restaurants. It gets very crowded at noon and night and you can see many local people in these restaurants. They have the greatest Donners and turkish food here at a reasonable price. There are also a lot of cafes, pubs and clubs nearby.
There are many shopping malls and local markets and you can find anything you need within a walking distance. I also bought some baklava from Haci Baba (15 minute walk from hotel) which I heard had the best baklava in the city. It is a little more expensive but I think it is worth trying.
Since the hotel is in the center of the city, you can travel by public transportation anywhere you want. The main metro station, many bus stations are nearby. I traveled by bus from and to the airport with only 6 TL and they were very comfy.
I really liked the experience overall, but I don't think it is the place for families.
