Great hotel!
Great stay just a few minutes walk from the Galata tower and only 30 mins or so walk from the Hagia Sofia. Comfortable room, great service and lovely rooftop bar! Also, felt very safe in the current times, with temperature checks every time we entered the hotel, very clean and all staff wearing masks etc.
