Only one big disappointment - breakfast. Unpleasant staff, working slowly, a lot of what you need to make themselves, such as cutlery and pick table. Although the terrace picture perfect, the food the same every morning, very traditionally, poor assortment in the Turkish breakfast traditions. Products not fresh, sometimes - very outdated, except bread. Dried sausages, scrambled eggs if you want ask for that fried, boiled eggs though is always there. Sometimes fry with egg baguette. All of these products are often cold, very bad taste. Has white and black bread. Coffee from the machine very bad, do not have Turkish coffee, tea reason. Cheese and meat a very small, multi-species, but not fresh, poor taste, tomatoes and cucumbers not fresh, wilted sometimes absent, no salads. Olives are good. Turkish yogurt was served always, breakfast cereals too, traditional sweet jam, milk, water. Juice is not very tasty. There are pieces of halva.
The hotel is ideally located off-season price really low, I do not know what is price in season. Location: 2 minutes from the hotel walk to the Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Sultan Ahmet Park, 5 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque, Sultan Hurrem Hamam, Topkapi complex gate, the church of Hagia Irene, Gülhane Park, Gülhane or Sultanahmet tram stop, Sirkeci metro station, 10 min - to Mosaic Museum, Nuruosmaniye Mosque, Grand Bazaar, 15-20 minutes walk to Sirkeci train station, the New Mosque, Eminonu port, Galata bridge, Egyptian Bazaar, Hagia Sophia Little Mosque.
View through a window and a French balcony to in front house.
The room is very spacious and can accommodate three people, lighting the room a little small, there are minibar and a small fridge. There is no welcome gifts. Bed very comfortable, good mattress, the room clean and newly renovated, large closet but little shelves. There is a TV, but it did not work for several days and the staff did not repaired up. Only one rosette in room! The room appears to be safe, the hotel has a camera everywhere, in the corridors as well. There is an elevator.
Administrators helpful staff, propose and outsource the desired excursions, tickets to events, provide other information, always!
Clean the rooms every day, to maid should leave a few lira, cleans well, bring the item, the constantly adds bathroom accessories, bedding changes. Her very thanks.
Staff speak English well, some - Russian. There is a spacious lounge below.
At the top of the terrace a great view, there can be climbed at any time and enjoy the day in Istanbul.
At hotel has a small private hammam, which offers services at the same prices as in Istanbul and elsewhere - if negotiation is not busy your can get a discount. Traditional Turkish hammam program without oil massage costs 40 euro per person. Masseurs excellent, very good doing massage, you will be sure to satisfy. I've tried - and thank them and a guy who take discount.
