I had booked this hotel through this website for my honeymoon due to its highly recommended status,experience, and value for money from which I was not disappointed. The location was ideal as you experience both the, close-by sightseeing touristy neighborhood attractions and the local neighborhood of Sultanahmet which created a holistic view of what the location had to offer. The hotel was centrally situated around the main attractions (albeit slight uphill walks, but all of Istanbul is hilly!); a 10min to walk to the Sultanahmet square where blue mosque is etc and 10min walk the other way to the Grand Bazaar and even the coast, where there were excellent sea food restaurants.
The hotel was very nicely presented and well decorated and upon arrival (free shuttle service to and from Ataturk airport because of our long stay) we had a mini presentation and walkthrough of a map of Istanbul from Serhat, the guest relations manager, who was very helpful and basically told us what to see when and where and how to plan our stay which was wonderful. He was always there when you wanted help with anything from finding directions to making reservations at some of the top restaurants and sea cruises...he made our trip to Istanbul worthwhile and I would have felt lost if he did not guide us with his excellent recommendations.
The room was clean, nice and of adequate size for a couple, with a Hamam style turkish bath which was a very nice addition to any bathroom. Room keeping was always on time and precise and left the room very clean and oragnised. Serhat even decorated our room in a honeymoon concept for free, as I had mentioned it to him in my email correspondence prior to our trip. Buffet breakfast was always a nice thing to wake up to and was very satisfying especially with it being on a terrace on top of the hotel with a view overlooking the Marmara sea!
Overall we had thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel and cannot recommend it enough. We miss our room! And SPECIAL THANKS to Serhat!!! and the staff who made it an extra special trip!
