Buffet breakfast is served on the rooftop. Since my booking mentioned "buffet", I expected more. However, I was disappointed with their buffet breakfast. There was coffee, tea, drinking water, bread, hardboiled eggs, marinated olives and crudités. I'm not sure if this a traditional Turkish breakfast, but the options were disappointing.
By 10AM, my friend and I decided to head out again. Upon our exit, I saw Mili, the manager, at the reception, and we greeted each other 'good morning'. I asked him if there will be housecleaning, and he said yes.
Outside the hotel, my friend and I stopped by the garden for a brief photo-op/selfie. A few minutes passed, Mili went out to the garden, smiling and asked me if it's OK to move us to a different room because there's a new booking for triple sharing and he can only give the room we're currently occupying to the new booking customers. He sounded kind (at first) and asked me again if it's OK and they will do the transfer of our stuff to the other room. I acknowledged his query and replied with a friendly smile that I'd like to stay in the same room because that's what was given to us, and with our things messed in the room, it would be of total inconvenience to transfer, plus with the limited time in Istanbul, we don't want to waste a few more hours just to re-pack our things because we need to transfer room.
With my reply, Mili's smile went off and I could tell from his face that he didn't like my response. He said, OK and that he will check. He went back inside the hotel. Then after a minute, he went back to me again holding a copy of my booking details. At this moment, his approach wasn't of good stance. He was bragging to my face that the room I booked was the budget room and not the room where he gave us when we checked in so my friend and I should be transferred to the budget room in the ground floor.
Location in Sultanahmet; strong wi-fi in all areas of the hotel
