My friend and I stayed in this hotel im March 2014. Although the weather was awful it didn't spoil the overall impression of the city to some extent due to friendly staff of this hotel.
The day we arrived it was quite chilly in our room and the hairdryer didn't work. We informed the receptionist - and when we got back from the walk everything was fixed!
Here are the advantages we foud:
- friendly staff
- nice location, close to the metro and Istiklal Street, Galata Bridge and Tower
- spacious room
- panoramic view on the city
- fair price
- well equipped room with kitchen area (we stayed in Deluxe Suite), plenty of towels, etc.
As we didn't take meal cannot say anything about breakfast/lunch.
What to improve? If bathrooms had shampoos, shower gels etc. the stay would be even more pleasant.
