Best location in Istambul

Posted May 3, 2015
Pros: Location, clean, excellent breakfast buffet, good restaurant for dining and attention of staff. Rooms are good for the category of the hotel.
Cons: If your room is located in the back of the hotel and there is a party in the ground floor, you won't sleep-no insulation and noise level is high.
Location: Walking distance (up the hill) from Sultanahmet, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, Archeology Museum, Grand Bazaar and several other historical locations.
The hotel is right into the old wall, in front of the Bosphorus, so you have a nice view from the 3rd floor top restaurant. The front desk is attentious and gave us maps and some info, but not pushy to sell stuff - we bought the Museum Pass (which is a must - you save $) in front of Topkapi, and found later that the hotel offers them at the front desk. The breakfast buffet is excellent, plenty of food with very little western options - but excellent types of cheese, nuts, sweets, fruits, etc at the top floor, and it is self service. There are many options to eat out if you want to walk more for dining or you can ask for a cab, but dining at the hotel's reataurant is also very good and not expensive - food is great, waiters are very good. We had an experience with a wedding party Saturday night and the traditional stomping was very lound in our room on the 1st floor. I called the front desk and asked for a timeline and they said up to midnight, and as I complained they offered me another room to spend the night away from the party, at no charge, and in 5 minutes we were set up. We arrived from S. Gocke airport, and traffic was horrible more than an hour commute. Strongly recommend setting up a taxi using Adore tour via Web - very reliable and reasonable cost. The hotel is well worth the price, and we wil come back for sure.
