                      The excellent staff, always helpful and friendly with good advice. Ece Acar at reception was especially pleasant and helpful. Proximity of hotel to main sights of the city.

                      Room we had on the lower ground floor had the worst view ever! Trains were a bit noisy.

                      The rooms adjacent to the lobby were very bright, roomy and the decor, modern. Lots of hot water with great water pressure. Responsive room temperature control. (Important because Istanbul can get very cold). The charming and attentive staff, the cherry on top.

                      The terrace view was amazing.

                      What a nightmare. My room was located in the basement and was very dark with 2 small windows. The cleaning ladies would wake me up every morning around 7, by smashing their vacum cleaners into my door and opening and closing the other doors where they stored towels etc... When they cleaned my room they would take all my clothes that was not in the wardrobe and put it into my luggage, without folding it so that everything was wrinkled. So I asked the receptionist for an iron, but she never brought it to me. I also asked to be woken up in the morning, but the receptionist did not call me! The breakfast was mediocre, with bad coffee. The birds feed from the buffet as well. One of them ate my cereal while I was getting some tea. The rim of the milk pot was dirty - there was old milk on it which nobody seemed to clean. I have photos of all this, but don't see the way to upload them. Overall, a horrible hotel. They did try to make it up by offering me a free taxi ride to the airport, but this does not solve the basic issues of this hotel.

                      The staff was superb!! I´ve ben in more expensive hotels where you get just a cold face. These kids are outstanding !! The location is really good.

                      The location was excellent. So are the staff. I also want to add the cleanliness of the rooms and the fantastic roof terrace which is overlooking Bosphorus from one side and to Hagia Sofia + Blue Mosque on the other side. 24 hours open bar terrace adds to it as well.

                      Very comfortable hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. excilant view one side Marmara Sea, and the other one is the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. This Hotel is a good value for money. The only thing need to improve was breakfast buffet

                      We had a lovely sized room, very nicely furnished. Views of the Blue Mosque were awesome. Breakfast was good & the rooftop terrace had a stunning panoramic view! Gurol (I'm not sure of the spelling)was extremely helpful & personable as he ran the front desk in the evenings. Loved the location of the hotel; nice quiet, quaint, street close to everything.

                      Slight odor in the bathroom; water leaked (condensataion from air conditioning maybe?) above closet onto clothes--not a huge deal for us but could be for other guests.

                      Location, bedroom, bed very comfortable.

                      Breakfast not brilliant.

                      Upon arrival the friendly and professional staff informed us of surrounding places to visit and how to get there. The Ocean room size was good with seaview and balcony with sitting area. The rooftop terrace was a lovely place for breakast everyday with views.

                      We would have really appreciated fresh juice at breakfast instead of the concentrated type options! Otherwise overall good place to stay in Sultanahmet area.

                      Friendly and helpful staff. Free airport transfer offer as we stayed more than 3 nights.

                      It was difficult to get heating on, had to ask at reception for it to be switched on each evening.
