    Very good

    Excellent position. Very close to main tourist attractions like Aya Sophia, Topkapi etc It is nice and clean. The restaurant on the terrace has one of the most beautiful views on the old city. However, the rooms could have been a little bigger, hardly any space to put away suitcases. The beds are two small for tall people ( more than 1.80m and taller)

    Very good

    Close proximity to key historical sights. Easy access to walk or take the "tram" to a variety of places. Great view from our window of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. Quiet. The hotel reception asked us in advance if we would like transportation to and from the airport--that made things easy. Nice touch.

    Bed was not as comfortable for us as we had hoped.

    Very good

    We really liked that the hotel was so convenient to all the sites of Istanbul. There was no need to rent a car as absolutely everything we wanted to do (all the major sites) were within walking distance. The restaurants were all very close from our hotel. We had a spectacular view from our window of the Blue Mosque and the Hajai Sophia. We also had a very nice breakfast each day in the rooftop restaurant. The manager planned a walking tour of the city our second day there and the guide was excellent. There was no charge for this tour. We were very impressed.

    The room was very warm even with the air conditioning. At night we had to open the window to get breeze and were attacked by mosquitoes. We are still nursing our bites! Also there had been water damage on the ceiling. We would hear plumbing sounds in the night and worried we may be flooded. Thought there would be a gym but it was not open.

    The hotel had a good view over the two important mosques in Istanbul, the Blue Mosque and Ayasofya Mosque. Also, the room had plenty of space. The restaurant hotel personnel was very helpful and kind.

    The air conditioning system did not work and one of the receptionists was not very friendly to the clients. The furniture was pretty old and the room had no coffee/tea-maker. Also, the TV was not very functional.

    Very good

    Staff was efficient and courteous.....however the beds need definately improvement...the mattresses felt like they had been used by very heavy overweight people with a definate hole in the middle. We stayed in room 401 which sizewise was ok but had very few hangers for hanging clothes.

    New mattresses absolutely necessary... they should also provide a little more light in the corridors of the hotel... it was almost pitch dark and one had difficulties to insert card to open room doors.
