Istanbul hotel review

Great place for the price, free continental breakfast and best of all free coffee and cafe. Internet needed to repair along with electrical wall outlet issues my only problem.  Otherwise I'd rate it a 5 star.

Unsafe airport-hotel transfer, dirty room, noisy and windows without shades

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
Cons: No free Internet, Noisy, dirty, unsafe transport, poor air con
Although hotel is in perfect location we got assigned room in a basement. I presume it was storage of some sort before. Dirty and smelly room, with out direct access to lobby, even using elevator there were several stairs to climb. Dirty air-condition with out modern controls. TV was 10inch wide, can be watched for longer that 30minutes. Toilet was smelly and drains clogged. Noisy envoroment, no shades on widows. Worst of all unsafe transport for airport resulted in accident, collision with other 3 cars. Refused to pay for transfer that ended up with our injuries and taking a taxi half way trough. I believe other rooms are nice but we were unlucky to have this assignment.

Nice location and hotel

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
The staff were very helpful and willing to help. I never had an issue that was not resovled very quickly. The single room was a bit on the tight side, but it was very well kept and clean. Also, most the major tourist sights are within walking distance, a big plus. I would recommend this hotel.
