We stayed in the annexe. However, it is not really an annexe, it is a good distance from the main hotel. The staff are extra helpful. They give us good guidance on where you go. The hotel is close to most attractions. The breakfast is good. We would definitely stay there again.

Sphendon Hotel, Istanbul
Great location with a wonderful view
The place was amazing, rooms are clean, breakfast was included, the location was in a quite neighborhood, five minutes away from Sultan Ahmed Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Top kapi. There are many restaurants, ATM machine, and convenient stores nearby. Best of all staff went above and beyond hotel service our house keeper provided us with recommendations on which tourist sites to visit and where to go for food based on our taste and budget, and how to get around Istanbul using the train, cab and Uber. He even told us how much we should pay so that no one can take advantage of us. We would stay at this location again.
