The view! Nothing and nothing beats the view from the rooftop. The standard room is quite small, but deluxe rooms were good. Good breakfast and amazing helpful staff. The location is super convenient as well, so many restaurants, tram are within walking distance and ofcourse Sultanahmet square. Overall a very pleasing to experience. Definitely recommend it.
