Nice hotel but out-of-the way for a first time visitor

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet, staff who try to please/be helpful
Cons: Nothing close, out-of-the-way location
We stayed for a week and the major sights were more of a tram ride away than we realized. Also, there was little at night for restaurants or even a place to have a coffee and pastry as the area was primarily commercial. The hotel had nice decor and was very quiet with a bathroom that was super-modern room, but lacking little conveniences, like towel bars or hooks. The staff was pleasant but somewhat lacking in English fluency. Seems to be popular with Europeans. Breakfast buffet was extensive, but never changed in the week we were there.

Value Money, Ideal Location

All the senator staff at the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly the hotel location is ideal for visiting all of the main sights of old Istanbul such as the Grand Bazaar, Spice Market, Blue Mosque etc - either by walk twenty minutes to the blue mosque or by tram to dolmabahce palace thirty minutes

wonderful hotel!

I would just like to thank you all so much for my lovely stay in your hotel, i have been to Istanbul many times but i have to say this was the best and it is our stay in this hotel that made our trip so good. I put in a special request for a large room and a large double bed and myself and my fiance were coming to Istanbul for our anniversary, i was emailed back to say all rooms were standard, when myself and my fiance arrived at the hotel we were amazed and delighted at the room we were given, we had our own private balcony and the room was VERY big! It made our stay so much more enjoyable, so much so, that we hardly left the room! Just want to say thank you so much for a wonderful stay and the next time i come to Istanbul i would not book any other hotel but here!
