I was very pleased with the check in and check out experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Some of staff could not speak very good English, but always found other English speaking staff to assist. Service was sometimes slow, but overall service was acceptable.
Staff are not the most cheerful, effecient or professional but hey that's part of the charm that is Turkey. It's a city hotel with lots of noise but adjoining bars and their music must be taken into account when booking. Call to prayer (by loud speaker) by the surrounding 5 mosques should also be considered but again is part of the charm. Excellently situated in the historical region and links and walking distance to all major sites. Breakfast buffet should cater to all tastes. Rooftop pool and sun area excellent as is cheap the Spa facilities.
Experience a different side of Istanbul by visiting Laleli, often referred to as Istanbul's little Moscow. Primarily a commercial neighborhood featuring a multitude of clothes shops, Laleli is home to the famous Laleli mosque, a striking example of Ottoman Baroque architecture. The little Bodrum Mosque, originally a Byzantine church built in the 10th century, is also worth a visit.
