Nice people but outdated hotel
While the hotel was in a great area, this hotel is outdated and needs help. I was there the end of October when the weather was cool. THe room they gave me had a draft. I complained that the heat was not working. The nice man at the front desk came to turn it on, but it never worked. At midnight I called the front desk, but no one answered so I put on every stich of clothing I owned. At 4 a.m. I went down to the front desk to wake up a man for a new room. He gave me a thin comforter and told me to check with the front desk in the morning. I did, and was given a room with a heater that eventually worked, but this was after trying about 6 rooms. The front desk people were nice, but when I asked for a refund, was told that I must contact the booking agency I used. THis hotel is in a great neighborhood, and has wonderful people, but if it is cold, I don't recommend staying here. The rooms are small and my rooms had a building backing up to them with no view at all.

A+ Excellent
Excellent! The location is in the middle of everywhere, right next to the Cistern, Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque. The personal at the hotel is very nice, they will help you with everything, they care about your money and always recomends you the best places, and always care for you that you pay the right amount for it. I had an experience that I lost my passport on a taxi, and thanks to their help I found it. Excellent!!

Good3.0 / 5
average
The good: The staff (especially John at reception) is super friendly and accommodating. They go above and beyond in recommending places to eat, shop and explore the city and we truly enjoyed their company. Breakfast is freshly prepared and tasty. The hotel is right in the heart of everything and public transportation and sightseeing are only short walk away. The bad: Rooms are quite rough around the edges (patched wall here and there, dusty ceilings, small and sometimes smelly bathrooms). We realize that in this neighborhood most buildings are old and rooms small, but the accommodation was underwhelming. Perhaps this was just the floor (2nd) or room we stayed in, but not likely to stay there again.
